This stock was paying over 20%? And it didn't go belly-up? That makes my meager earnings appear quite meager.

Sadly, had to whack two more comments.

Not sure who's comments you whacked hopefully not a moderators. If so, maybe people being up in arms is a bit more understandable.

Bump for context.


Thanks for the bump, let's look at historical price.

BayArea says

$19.35, how high will this thing go (I got in at $19.03, but not looking long).


That post was from August 2016,

ARLP is trading right now at $20.82

That's over a year and a half, doesn't sound like a great return.

A DOW index fund from August 2016 till now returned 39% (plus dividends), that would have been a better investment. (DOW went from 18,500 to 25,700).

So it looks like it was indeed a good play for about a year since the original rec. And then lagged S&P for another year. But the sell recommendation never came from the analyst who recommeded the stock. Tsk-tsk-tsk.

Here’s a nice opportunity for a teaching moment.

Us wealthy people don’t fret over the day to day changes in the on paper value of our equities, rather we seek out dividend paying instruments. Be sure to let us know when you find one that pays a DD distribution, with the potential to double before I can utilize long term cap gainz. Thanks
