    TC Pipelines, LP (NYSE:TCP) did something that no limited partnership wants to do in May of this year: It reduced its distribution. The 35% distribution cut was clearly material for unitholders, and was compounded by a nearly 30% drop in TC Pipeline’s unit price. Although the units have gained some ground back, they remain off roughly 40% for the year. Value-conscious investors might wonder, however, if TC Pipelines, with its still generous 7.9% yield, is a buy at this point?

1. Knowing the Medicare rules and options can help you avoid penalties, fill in gaps, save money, and get the best coverage each year. I receive more questions about Medicare than anything else. Many readers are turning 65 and want to know the sign-up rules. Others continue to work past age 65 and want to make sure they aren’t hit with late-enrollment penalties. See When to Sign Up for Medicare for the standard sign-up rules, and see What to Know About Enrolling in Medicare Part B if you delayed signing up past 65 because you were working. Readers also understand how important it is to get extra coverage to fill in the gaps in Medicare, whether through a medigap plan paired with a Part D prescription drug plan (to cover medical and drug expenses, respectively) or through a Medicare Advantage plan (to cover both). See When to Sign Up for Medigap and Prescription-Drug Coverage and Medicare Part D Beneficiaries May Pay Less for Prescriptions in 2018. If you have Medicare Advantage, you can switch plans during open enrollment every year; you may have opportunities to change plans at other times, too.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Garrett Baldwin]

    This morning, President Trump suggested that the United States is considering strong military action in response to recent chemical attacks carried out on civilians by the Syrian government. The president promised to send “nice and new and ‘smart'” missiles to Syria and accused the Russian government of partnering with a “Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!” The president’s remarks are a significant departure from comments made last week, which suggested that the United States would be pulling out of Syria in the coming months. Trump’s threat of war over a recent chemical attack in Syria drove crude oil and gold prices higher. Geopolitical worries often offer a boost to commodity prices due to concerns about supply. Trump’s threat comes at a time that markets are already concerned about a significant military conflict in the Middle East between Saudi Arabia and Iran. WTI crude prices added 0.9% to hit $66.10 per barrel. Brent crude pushed to $71.10 per barrel. Gold price topped $1,350 per ounce and are poised for bigger gains. According to Axios, U.S. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) has privately told friends that he will not seek reelection in the fall. The news comes at a perilous time for Republicans, who are expected to lose the House of Representatives and potentially the Senate. Axios was the first to report the news. The story is also notable because Ryan recently achieved his long-time goal of passing tax reform in late 2017.
