January 31, 2020. Here is a great website showing the status of the China virus:


ETPPRD Energy Transfer A position in the Core Portfolio is going ex-dividend. It typically drops to UNDER $24.00 (may take a week or two) which places it in the “ON SALE” category.

We are placing a LIMIT BUY GTC order at $24.00.

Here is the original post from November when we bought:

November 6, 2019. Energy Transfer Operating LP is one of the largest midstream energy companies in the U.S with more than 86,000 miles of pipeline transporting oil and gas products through 38 states. It makes money by charging its customers for using its network of pipelines and storage tanks. NOTE we are buying the preferred ETPPRD (ETP-D), NOT the stock. The yield is a very nice 7.6%. Try to get at $24.81 or lower.

Energy Transfer Operating LP (ETP.PRD)

Energy Transfer Partners is a holding company. Through its subsidiaries, Co. is engaged in natural gas operations, which consist of natural gas midstream and intrastate transportation and storage and interstate natural gas transportation and storage, and crude oil, natural gas liquids (NGL) and refined product transportation, terminalling services and acquisition and marketing activities, as well as NGL storage and fractionation services. Co. and its subsidiaries operate one of the intrastate pipeline systems in the U.S. providing energy logistics to main trading hubs and industrial consumption areas throughout the U.S.


Who would have guessed Hallmark is in trouble:

It’s a tough time to be in the greeting-card business.

Papyrus is closing all 254 of its stores in the US and Canada after its parent company, Schurman Fine Papers, filed for bankruptcy citing “the general downturn in the brick-and-mortar retail industry.”

Meanwhile, at least 16 Hallmark-branded stores in the US are also closing, according to local media reports and posts to Facebook by store owners.


This is so funny:

Polls show it’s official: the oh-so progressive, oh-so woke, oh-so diversity-driven Democrat party has rejected all the women, all the people of color, and all the women people of color, to settle on two of the oldest, whitest guys in American politics today.

According to the latest national polling, the race is not even close.

In first place, there’s Joe Biden, the 197-year-old corrupt racist from Delaware.

In second place, there’s Bernie Sanders, the ancient communist who just had a heart attack.
