  • WSJ: Crude on derailed train would have violated new vapor-pressure cap [View news story]
    Bakken oil is more flammable than any other oil produced in the US. It should be treated before being shipped.

  • The Euro May Be Riskier Than You Think [View article]
    Today's London "Telegraph" has photos of the new Greek drachma notes in denominations from D 100 all the way up to D 10.000 (sic!), printed by De la Rue & Co of London. That indicates to me that the Greeks are at least prepared for all eventualities. But don't think the Europeans would then be off the hook. Whether Greece ever decides to drop the Euro currency or not, they still remain members of the EU, and will still have to be supported. After all, Greece would certainly not be the only EU member maintaining its own currency.

  • Germany's Outlook Is Terrible, Gold Could Be Playing Possum, And Multiple False Trends Look Good [View article]
    The great fear has always been what they called "contamination". They thought they could contain little Greece with its 11 million population, but if the contagion should spread to Italy or Spain whose debts are astronomical, the whole Euro house of cards would collapse.

  • Ann's Simple Income Investing Strategy [View article]
    Frankly, I can't see the fascination of monthly payers. The stock market is not a pension fund. Of course it is nice to have money coming in regularly, but that will be the case anyway if you have a well-diversified portfolio. Persons who possess the intelligence to invest in the stock market should be able to spread their cash expenditures over three months.

  • This Chart Is Worth 1,000 Words [View article]
    Absolutely. Swiss banks are already charging negative interest.

  • Your Biggest Risk In The Market May Not Be What You Think [View article]
    I believe that too much time is being spent by some investors worrying about "the market" or the various indexes. Maybe I am doing something right, because the DOW is down 33 points right now, and yet 15 out of my 16 stocks are up. Perhaps a small individual investor should concentrate on picking the right stocks, instead of fretting about what "the market" is doing.

  • Moody's: Prolonged oil slump a negative for Canadian lenders [View news story]
    It was foolish to drive all six Canadian banks down equally, since some are not exposed to oil at all. Moreover, most Canadian oil is US owned, and US banks are far more affected by oil. J.P. Morgan and Wells Fargo, for example, each carry more oil exposure than all Canadian banks put together.

  • Fracking quakes in Alberta prompt tougher rules for shale drilling [View news story]
    Oh, I just noticed that there is a mistake in the above article. News editor Carl Surran is referring to oil producer Encana (TSE:ECA), and not at all to Enbridge (ENB), a pipeline which of course does no drilling.

  • In Search Of High Yield And Growth [View article]
    You are talking about WPZ and OKS. But the article is about WPM and OKE. That is not quite the same thing.

  • In Search Of High Yield And Growth [View article]

    This article is not about WPZ and OKS. It is about their parent companies WMB and OKE. Both of them just RAISED their dividends.

  • Most Keystone XL crude would stay in the U.S., report says [View news story]
    Canada now has direct oil pipelines in place to both Atlantic (ENB) and Pacific (KMI) oceans. It does not require the detour via the Mexican Gulf for oil exports.

  • Canadian Banks Q1 2015 Preview: Expect A Bumpy Ride [View article]
    The bank with most US exposure would be TD, not RY. BMO owns Chicago's Harris Bank with its regional branches. BNS is all over the Caribbean, Central and South America. NA is probably the only one not exposed to oil.

  • Fracking quakes in Alberta prompt tougher rules for shale drilling [View news story]
    I don't get it. What does this have to do with ENB? They are not fracking in Alberta, nor anywhere else.

  • Enbridge Q4 results boosted by new pipelines to key U.S. markets [View news story]
    The most notable new ENB pipeline is the one to Montreal. For the first time Western Canadian oil can now flow to Eastern Canada which until now had to import its oil from abroad. Theoretically at least, this would also make possible the export of Canadian oil from an Atlantic seaport for the first time.

  • Where Will The Price Of Oil Settle? [View article]
    I don't see how the oil price affects ENB. They neither produce nor sell oil.
    They merely transport and store it which is fee-based, regardless of oil price.
