  • Kinder Morgan Jumps Largest Growth Obstacle With Consolidating Merger [View article]
    Thanks Tim!

    Largest holding by our firm, so Yeeee Haaaa! Barack's happy too!

    The ouch that feels good for those in the highest tax bracket, holding KMR, EPB and KMP in taxable accounts. A boon for those in Roth'ed, even deferred accounts. Giving the IRS 50% of the Inc. divvy tends to reduce attractiveness of the dividend growth rate. Competition from MLP ROC and Munis in the tax avoidance space dampens this mega merger.

    Is this the preferred option going forward for the MLP's finding Distributions exceeding DCF coverage? A sign of things to come as Yellen bows out?

    Did Kinder just become a target for acquisition by the mass transfer of assets/knowledge to Inc.?

  • Report: China planning online sales tax [View news story]
    Obama Care stated out small. Now those paying as little as $18 for coverage want it free. Wait, they want you to pay for their insurance now. Isn't that Medicaid, the great Unfunded mandate?

    The "Breaking News" item exposes a concept seeking the next great platform from which to generate more Tax Revenue. BaBa may be that platform? All the while failing to fund those substantially underfunded mandates is the practice here in the States.

    Smartest Nation on earth, taxing the World now. Brilliant, Brilliant!

    Amazon and EBay share price should jump on this news as long as Barack refrains from following the Chinese.

    Watch out Uber and Lyft, y'all may be the next TAX opportunity?

    Rich Kinder is hopefully working his shopping list. The issue is the overpaying for assets by those unable to be enriched from organic growth. Kinder has Years of Organic Growth Opportunities versus overpaying for bolt on assets. Upside in the Midstream is vastly different than the speculative metrics used by the Upstream Reserve boys.

    Watch those Midstream Ebitda multiples paid, they will point to the desperate!

    Buying Kinder on this dip, when Cash is available!

  • General Motors tries to push off some lawsuits to 'old' GM [View news story]
    Velcro,

    Do you know what you are eating? Where did your food come from, how was it processed, what are you eating? How many deaths are attributable to what you ingest, how many are sickened daily riding in a vehicle?

    It is absolutely terrible death resulted from an ignition switch. The corporate culture should be extricated and punished for their deeds trying to secret away their liability.

    A fertile area for litigation and not just to do with vehicles! We are still going to eat and buy vehicles!

    GM sales speaks for itself. Buying for the future but praying new management learned from the rear view mirror.

    This is a fabulous beat down to place a bet on; it isn't going away folks!
