  • Kinder Morgan, Inc.: Clearance Sale, Just $24...Seriously Consider This Dividend Gold Nugget [View article]
    I may be a fool but I am long now and will stay long until I die unless the dividend is suspended or cut to below 5 percent...of course if the stock tanks to ten bucks there is no point in selling anyway.

    Low oil prices are not only pressuring the Saudi government but other petroleum states as well. I am thinking that oil will end up around sixty bucks in the next 16 months or there will be "The House of Pain" for countries dependent on oil revenue.

  • Kinder Morgan: Don't Be Fooled By The Smoke And Mirrors Routine [View article]
    I am a buyer here and also add to my position through automatic dividend reinvestment. There is no "Disruptive" technology that is going to hurt KMI's business so I am letting my shares compound for the next decade. I will be 85 then a and ready to throw some money at the granddaughters.

  • Kinder Morgan Is Nothing Special [View article]
    i am underwater considerably on KMI. This bothers me but since I am a long term buy and hold investor who reinvests dividends even at my advanced age of 74, I am staying put and may buy more. I better be right this time so my children will have a bundle.

  • LNG Export Is Beginning - One Sector Is A Clear Winner [View article]
    Thank you for the article. It gives me some confidence that I will be OK having stuffed my portfolio with KMI recently. Down but not out! As a buy and hold investor, we are talking decades or forever, I have steeled myself for ups and downs because I generally reinvest those dividends rather than squander them on whims liKe I did last week on a boat for my's the children and grandchildren that are beginning to suck up the money...piano, karate, dancing, art, theater, etc...whoosh there goes the dough!

  • Kinder Morgan: Lies, Damned Lies, And Statistics [View article]
    It is a pipeline company that is growing. It makes money and pays a better than average dividend. Long term real investors know to buy and hold for decades. A few hundred shares more and I will hit my goal and sit and enjoy reinvesting that dividend.

  • Thoughts On Kinder Morgan After The Barron's Blast [View article]
    Yeah, I am cutting back on my Barron's too. The markets need positive news not negative half baked assessments. Investors invest for decades and pipelines are not going away.

  • Now Is The Time To Short Energy Recovery, Inc. [View article]
    Yes it is very positive for me as well. Having owned this since the beginning it is about time for a reward.
    As a buy and hold investor I stay put all the time. I expect further use of ERII product in other industries within two years. Good luck to all.

  • What If Kinder Morgan Cut Its Dividend? [View article]
    Yes, I could go with that if it is really prudent and smart but, I tell you Mr. Webber, when you get to my age, 74, you live on those dividends which are critical.
    I do not want to raid my principle at all....when and if you have grandchildren you will understand where us seniors are at! Good luck.

  • Kinder Morgan: The Story Of Icarus [View article]
    I regret my ignorance. I am regretting my recent purchase of KMI stock which added to my previous purchase which was already slightly underwater!

    Thank you for the article ....And I hope things are not as glum as you suggest they might become.

  • Energy Recovery lands $125M deal with Schlumberger, shares double [View news story]
    Well, having bought ERII in 2009 and a bunch of 500 share hunks since then, I am finally back to even...but the sad news is that I sold most of my shares last year out of disgust. If it went to hundred bucks a share it would still not be a very significant part of my portfolio but I am hanging on to the rest.

    This contract does validate their technology but I wonder what they mean by "exclusive"...does that mean they cannot sell any other systems to anyone else on earth? If so, none of us are going to get rich with this stock.

  • Interview With Energy Recovery CEO Joel Gay [View article]
    Thank you. I am on the same page as you except that I am well under water on the stock as I have held it from the beginning.
    Getting contracts for desal plants is a very long term proposition as the plants take years to plan, get approved and built and the revenue spent with ERII is a fraction of a fraction of total cost to build.
    As a new tech for O&G installations it also takes years to get trial sales and then orders in the pipeline. It is along slog and has not been worth it so far.

  • Why We're Dumping Kinder Morgan Right Now [View article]
    Although I know nothing about anything I do know I have a strong dividend in KMI and have reinvested it and will keep holding and reinvesting for the next decade or more.

    As far as I am concerned the company has a strong business in a strong field and that I will prosper from it over time.
    I will leave it to others to move in and out of the market helping to pay the taxes I do not pay because I don't sell.
    Thanks for the make some valid point but, you know, weather changes and so do the clouds.

  • Expect Hard Times 'Short Term' For Williams Companies [View article]
    Having owned the stock for well over a decade and being a buy and hold forever investor (unless the story changes), I will stay put and keep reinvesting and compounding my shares watching my income grow. I'll let others help keep our great country going by paying the capital appreciation taxes!

    As our investor population ages many will want and need that dividend income so I am betting there will by more buy and hold investors like myself.

    I am up 239% on my original investment and my dividend has gone from forty dollars a quarter to seven hundred and six.

    I intend this stock to be in my portfolio upon my death and I am sure it will be worth
    a tidy bundle by then.

    Thank you for your excellent article and good luck to all.
