  • HI, knowing little about tax free municipal bond funds, I found KTF to have a good distribution rate and ok with the long term holdings and degree of leverage. I have some KTF and looking for some other choices.

    I have spent a few hours with different screens from fidelity and schwab and for some reason, probably my own inexperience, I cannot seem to find roughly comparable funds with similar distribution rates, leverage levels and equal or better return to risk ratios.

    Can anyone provide any guidance on specific bond funds that are roughly similar to KTF-- with regard to distribution rate (over 6%) , degree of leverage (30's ok) and a favorable return to risk ratios (better than average return for average risk), also hoping to stay with four or five star Morningstar ratings as KTF?

    Any guidance or suggestions greatly appreciated!!

    I'm told that VNRCP will generate a K-1 and provide a tax liability. Yet if it were in a Roth IRA it should seemingly be exempt from taxation.

    Any thoughts on whether a K-1 can be disregarded if the equity is in a Roth? Any comments welcome!

  • All that is going to do is charge you out of your shares to allow someone else to reap future gains.
    Shareholders should oppose any attempt to shift entitlement of future profits for some kind of a paltry buyout. We shareholders took the risk and should reap all future rewards. Plus those who are in taxable accounts would get whacked on any possible future distribution, depending upon how it is structured. Seems like the Roth should be stuffed first before putting in tax exposed accounts and then pray for no buyout...

  • I see VNRCP is recommended in October's Kippies Investing for Income.
    Seems like a good time to pick some up on this weakness. Thoughts?

  • While I am a long time holder of VOD, I am wondering based on today's conditions if VZ is not a very good place for new money, especially in an apparently weakening market.

    This GE and VZ venture seems to be something that could be very powerful for both companies. Thoughts?

    I am wondering if it would be an overstatement that right now VZ appears almost bulletproof.

    Any comments on these speculative ideas? Have i gone too far in overstating the apparent benefits of VZ a this juncture of the market? Critical thinking welcome...

  • I thought we had been promised various times that Plug would be profitable by the third quarter? The fourth quarter? What is it now?

    Or is it now a foregone conclusion that PLUG will not be profitable in 2014?

    Today's announcement of plenty of sales and substantial percentage increases over select prior periods begs the $99,000 question.....

    So When Will Plug Turn Profitable?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
