  • I Don't Believe Kinder Morgan Will Trade With A 9% Yield [View article]
    I found the article persuasive, with above average clarity in stating the argument for KMI's value over a range of possibilities.

  • Kinder Morgan Continues Down Unsustainable Path [View article]
    NYCB is boring. It just keeps cranking out a steady profit. One of the best boring investments I ever made. Now KMI has given me much more excitement over the years.

    "I don't mess with the warrants (too risky for me, could expire worthless, no?)"

    I suppose that is true, but do you really think KMI is not going to trade over $41 some time between now and May 2017? $1.50 invested today could very well be worth $4 if KMI returns to $41 this year or next. That's an awfully good return.

    True, it was overturned (thank goodness). But power companies had to make decisions over the last two years. Much of the damage has been done, so to speak. Coal plants shuttered. Gas plants planned.

  • 18% Upside In Depomed Inversion [View article]
    "If the Treasury Department is surprised and scandalized that incentives impact behavior, then they will be frequently surprised and scandalized."

    I was just explaining to my daughter last night about the folly of creating a disincentive to letting employees work more than 30 hours a week. We end up with a lot of underemployed workers - and less tax revenue.

    "They would probably prefer to command and control a species that was not so self-seeking about such things as taxes."

    I'm sure they would. But the nightmare cannot last forever. Even the USSR came to an end.

    Seems to me the scale is the main advantage. 67 times IRA is pretty huge.

    For smaller investment sizes, a simple Roth contribution makes sense, too, for those of us who had children late in life. I will not be withdrawing money for my kids until after I turn 59.5 anyway. And there is no restriction on the purpose of Roth withdrawals.

    All humans produce carbon dioxide, even in their sleep, even if that sleep is peaceful.

    "who cares, anthropogenic global warming is bogus anyways."

    I just did a presentation on this. If one looks back at the ice core records going back 400k years, one sees that most of Earth's history has been very long (100k year) ice ages, punctuated by a few warm periods like our current Holocene period (a mere 11k years). That thing we call the continental shelf used to be the coastline during the ice age.

    And yet, both in Greenland and Antarctica, the ice core record only goes back 400k years. Why? Because that is where they hit bedrock, because 400k years ago both were devoid of ice. The Earth has been a lot warmer than it is now or is likely to be during the next 500 years. And some time, well after we're dead (Dow 60 million) the Earth will once again go into a very long ice age.

    Problem is, it's also been closer to $30 in recent memory. I would have prayed for $38 back then. Still, I hung in there and bought lots of warrants at $1.89.

    But the iPhone only runs iOS apps from the Apple Store. This will run Windows software. There is quite a bit of Windows software.

  • Kinder Morgan: The Cat Is Officially Out Of The Bag [View article]
    Yes, it is. Because the breathless headline is that "the cat's out of the bag". And yet you reveal nothing that one could not have assumed to be true before. The Canadian gov't is pro-oil and favors the pipeline.

    Another article says, "The sharks are circling." But I found nothing to explain that inflammatory headline. Yes, you waste our time. The information is good and accurate, but not novel or useful.
