From what I saw, the offer was quite fair, and you'll probably like your number. -- Peter

My best guess is that the offer will be about 10X-12X my current annual pension.... which is about 4X my former annual income. That's for someone aged 57 at retirement, turning 60 next month, about 27 years of service.

Overall, I'm looking at splitting the proceeds into:

* Income stocks (primarily MLPs plus a scattering of others): ~30%

* Sell options for income (Selling puts on reasonably priced growth companies, selling calls when put to..... a mix of companies from BRK-B to FB): ~30%

* Invest in solidly growing companies (this will overlap the options related list, but also include companies like MKL): ~30%

* Special situations (like F was. like CBB is. And others): 10%
