    A moron wouldn't have the cash saved up to pay his taxes , or whatever else may pop up . Look ,if you can't afford to pay your taxes , I can only guess you're not investing your money right . I gave you some good stocks to look over . Plus, you should have saved up some of your money . So when things like this happen you can be prepared . If you didn't save up for things like this , your the moron .So stop crying and learn from your mistakes . Plus , you sound like you know it will pass already . "Be prepared for a very nasty surprise when you file your tax returns next April ." So you're the one that sounds unprepared .

    So you know the guards that bring the drugs in for the inmates . He!! , they should have some money you can borrow to pay your taxes . Unless they're saving it up for their own bail and lawyers . As sooner or later they all get busted .However, you're right about one thing , drugs and medications are one in the same . I guess if the guards gets caught bring in the drugs , they just claim it was their medication .

    Anyway, if you can't be prepared to invest and pay your taxes in the stock market . Then try your luck as a guard and selling your drugs to the inmates . Oh and by the way , pay your taxes on your drug money by claiming you made it elsewhere . Thereby cleaning up your illegal money .

    Well , best of luck moron.

    fredmertz999 are you as stupid as you sound ? As for myself , I'm well diversified in my investments and I don't even work for a living .No , their not all winners . But there are more winners than losers . I can post any time of day or night . I may not like to pay my taxes, but I pay them every April .I can and will pay my higher taxes this year if need be . So smart people like you can eat .

    I bet when you go see your drug dealer , she makes you lay on a couch and talk to her for an hour first. What kind of medication does she have you on ?

    Well best of luck to you and stay well diversified .

    First , If the merger is so bad . Why did the stock KMP jump from $80. to well over $94. after the announcement ? Second , what the he!! are you still doing here ? Third, this will be one of the biggest mergers ever . So my guess is, I'll be paying some heavy taxes this year . Then collecting better returns there after . That's why I invest , for the returns .

    If the more educated stockholders vote the way you see it . Well I guess you have nothing to worry about . Also, if the more educated stockholders feel it's a bad deal and vote NO . Then I guess I'll have nothing to worry about either.

    So vote and have a good day .

    Sentiment: Hold

  • Well I only own 200 units of KMP .I don't understand the tax payment I'm getting myself into . However, I have no education and that's why I own stocks . I let the people that went to college work for me . I normally don't even vote . I let that up to the more educated , so I'm just here for the ride .

    This looks to me like I may pay a higher tax this year and enjoy the ride there after. So I voted yes .

    However, if you want to sell and looking for growth and dividend too,how's this look ?

    IEP ............. TTM $6.25 ,estimated earnings this year $9.41 ,estimated earnings next year $13.34 ,paying out just under 6% now and more than likely to grow.

    However, if this is more than you want to spend .Or just looking for a dividend . You may want to look these over. They all still pay out over 5% I think.

    T, FUN, ARLP, BPL, MIC, CMLP, SPH, NS, CLMT, NAT and AROW also pays out about 6% if you count the 2% stock split every year .

    Well best of luck to you and don't put all your eggs in one basket and do your own homework .

    Best of luck to all .

    Mr. Icahn knows how to make money . I'm sure he has the best people working for him at IEP , that can be found . Steve Jobs died October 5, 2011 . Now look at the Apple chart and see what happened to that stock after his death ? Life goes on with us or without us, as Apple did . As I think IEP would .However, I hope Mr. Icahn will still stay with us for some time to come .

    I think the over all market has a lot of downside coming .I held on and rode my dividend paying stocks down and most of them back up again last time . If I sold every time I thought the market was going down ,then bought every time I thought it was on it's way back up .Well lets just say ,there would have been a lot of trading going on .I should have sold any stock that cut or stopped their dividends .But even some of them have made it back . Like FUN and MIC .

    Nothing wrong with taking a profit . But I'm just an investor, not a trader . Better than 6% looks great to me and the expected earnings per share here look even better . Most socks are showing their expected earnings per share going up . However, I can't understand how in these times .

    Well best of luck to all.

    Sentiment: Hold

    ALDW Bottom Line was:
    The stock has also started to move higher lately, adding 9.4% over the past four weeks, suggesting that investors are starting to take note of this impressive story. So investors may definitely want to consider this Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) stock to profit in the near future.

    SOL.. Looks like a good call to me .
    Next years earnings +0.29

    Best of luck to you

    Thank you Obama ,

    In order to keep companies in the United States (Apple ,Verizon and so on )to provide us with jobs . The plan looks like .We use the companies still in the United States to spy on other countries . Therefore ,turning the other countries against the united states and those companies . Smart, now they can't move to another country to save on taxes. Also, keeps our jobs in the United States .

    Oh, and turn off your phones and computers before sex .

In fact, consensus estimates have moved sharply higher for both of these time frames over the past four weeks, suggesting that Alon USA Partners could be a solid choice for investors.

    2 QTR earnings estimate

    My estimate is $0.13 per share, based upon the information provided on the thru put for Q2, I am estimating $0.13 EPS for Q2 2014. There are three (3) analysts that are covering this stock. High estimate is $0.23, Low estimate is a loss of 0.02 and the middle estimate is $ 0.21.

    I would imagine that there will be some knee jerk reaction when the earnings are announced on August 6. Q1 earnings were $0.68 per share and the on the surface Q2 will look like a miss.

    There may be a buying opportunity the morning of August 7 as Q3 and Q4 should be strong if the 3/2/1 Crack spreads hold thru the end of the year. Less

    That would still place me much higher that you

    Why don't you grow up and really buy some stocks. You could start with just $250 with VZ . Buy it straight from the company. Put it into the reinvestment plan and add whatever you can out of every pay check ,or whenever you cash in your cans . Turn a trick or whatever it is that you do .You have to start somewhere .

    Well have a good one
