  • Why America's Economy Is Stuck In Low Growth [View article]
    Mr. T.,

    I was raised in a house in NE Texas with two masonry fireplaces for heat, no central Air Conditioning or Window Units. One Attic Fan for cooling. Propane to cook.

    We Cut and Split Oak by the Cord, used rich pine stumps for kindling. You always got warm twice using fire wood, first when you cut it, second when you burned it.

    My o my aren't things different today!

    From SA:
    Mexican President to introduce plan to liberalize energy sector
    Mexico President Enrique Pena Nieto is expected to introduce a proposal in the country's Senate on Wednesday that would change the constitution to allow private companies to produce oil and gas via profit-sharing deals and joint ventures with state-owned Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex).The plan would end Pemex's decades-old monopoly, with the idea being to attract the expertise and deep pockets of major oil companies such as BP (BP), Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Shell (RDS.A) to help extract oil and gas in difficult-to-get-to places, such as deep under the sea.The chances of success appear to be high, as Nieto can count on his own PRI party and the right-wing PAN opposition group to back the reform."A transformational change in the energy market has the potential to finally place Mexico at the center of the stage among emerging markets," says Nomura Securities

  • Catalysts Energize Energy Transfer [View article]
    Kelsey Warren is hitting on all eights!

    Too Much Gas and Not Enough Plants to Strip is an issue being addressed. Anyone with a Gas Plant NOT at full capacity is on the Acquisition radar.

    The largest Ethylene Cracking Plant in the Northern Hemi will gobble up Plenty of Tailgate Gas from the Eagleford, Wolfcamp and may eventually get some Marcellus Tailgate when Williams completes that project. E Crack may come on line in late 2014?

    PSX is needing MORE Rich Gas to reach capacity, NOW.

    The Author is spot on; Midstream will continue to BOOM!!

    Long PSX, CVX, SXE, CNP & WMB

    Great basis for the Failure of Barry Sorrento's Reign.

    Ford F150 CNG Fueled Vehicle is the greatest culmination of success without Government Bailout Funds.

    GDP rises after Barry!

  • Renewable Energy Group Has 150%+ Upside On Higher Capacity And The Blend Wall [View article]
    Hey guys,

    CNG Fueled Ford F150.

    These Renewable Ethanol Fuels will flag versus the cheap Compressed Natural Gas. I regret the Fed supporting Grain derived ethanol up front, should have been Cellulosic instead!

    Owned all Maddog, OIA was a core holding after it consolidated with two other CEFs. I hope our bets are made at a new bottom!

    Thanks for an eye opening article on the Muni CEFs. I have held Muni CEFs since 2008/09. I too ran for the hills, selling any Muni anything this year, CEF and ETF alike.

    I just dipped my toe into this space once more, trying DMB. Will I regret this purchase?

    Bets Down and Dice are rolling.

  • Rising Interest Rates? What Value Investors Are Doing [View article]
    Scared, Naw!!

    When the 10Y yield rises further:

    I hope the Domestic Drilling Rigs don't stop drilling.
    I hope Walmart doesn't stop selling Groceries.
    I hope the Standing Timber does not fall in value.
    I hope my State does not stop maintaining the Roads/Bridges.
    I hope Mr. Doctor does not stop practicing medicine.
    I hope the ISD's and Community Colleges stay open.
    I hope our Military is not disbanded.
    I hope the food in New Orleans stays spicy.

    When you are Old you have seen things that don't really send you to the Cellar, but only after running to the Cellar too many times when you heard it thunder does one gain this EXPERIENCE during Stormy Times.

  • Clean Energy Fuels - Natural Gas Play For The Patient Investor [View article]

    You aware of the CNG compressors available to the public? Suction on your Home's ounce line (Nat Gas Utility Supplied) and discharge into your vehicle's CNG Fuel Tank.

    CNP is assisting in the installation in Texas. Ford is assisting with their new F-150 CNG model.
