  • Increased monies are obviously necessary for capital expansion (both existing and future); however with the recent elections in Italy not yet resolved, the testimony of the Fed on Tues. and Wed., combined with the potential sequester on Friday, one must question the timing of this SPO in re EEQ.
    Whether this action is accretive or not to EEQ remains open to debate. Any input here would be appreciated...
    Aside: Hopefully another SPO is not in the works for EEP which has just sustained approximately a 5% decline in stock price after the recent conference call indicated this year's growth between 2% and 5%.
    Regardless I remain long EEP and wish all good luck...

  • News dorks have not yet figured out Administration has no remaining political bill to pay less rational part of environmentalist lobby. Pipeline approval IS bargaining chip that closes almost-grand bargain April 15. Bet on it. Better use this opportunity to buy all the EEP you can. There will be no looking back after this spring. Think the Canadian government doesn't have a heads up on this? Think harder.
