    Frequent compounding is a great advantage over time and that is what monthly paying investments afford you the advantage of.

  • General Electric - Doubling Down On Natural Gas [View article]
    I think the fact that we are talking about using one fuel to transport another one clearly demonstrates that no one energy solution will meet all of americas energy needs and that a mix of various forms of energy is really what is needed if we relied to much on one fuel than we would be too sensitive to price fluctuations however if there are multiple fuels that achieve the same goal than it makes it harder for any one fuel to dominate the market. thats the beauty of capitalism.

    this is america and you can be certain that if demand went up that "greedy americans" would increase drilling thereby compesating for the increased demand. the problem with oil is that foreign governments have a driect influence on how much is produced. there are no such constraints on the american nat gas market. it is one of true supply and demand.

    wow I would not have guessed that Berkshire buying up more companies I mean really who would have Guessed (he said sarcastically!) Although it is nice to know that I am targeting the same companies that the Oracle of Omaha is as well. Makes me feel a little better about some of my analysis.

    fuel costs will start to fall as the rollout of NATGAS collection trucks fueled with Gas from their own collection facilities begins to ramp up. I think the increase in fuel costs is a short term rise that will be offset by long term goals

    I agree that utilies look stretched a little thin but that is what happens when yield hungry investors are driven away from bonds by low interest rates. The look for yields in other locations and thereby compress those sectors. As far as price targets go I am an income investor so I am not necessarily looking for the quick turnaround on share price profit my typical windows for returns is 5-8 years. I have a much longer term view and even though P/E's are squeezed slightly SCG has show the ability to continue to grow profits so a higher P/E may be warranted in their case. I would say SCG is a buy at any price point below a P/E of 18 at that point I would say the company is slightly overvalued for a Utility. I would continue to hold SCG above 18 though and probably would not think about selling until its P/E reached around 20 - 21. Again this is just what I would do and it may not be specifically your plan.
