  • Williams Partners to buy another 21% stake in UEO for $575M [View news story]
    Great move likely for Marcellus/Utica NGLs moving into the Williams East Coast System, headed to the Louisiana/Texas Petrochemical plants.

    Great help for NGLs, but tailgate market still in trouble.

    Where is Kinder in all this Frey???

    DPM remains in the catbird seat with NGL accessibility to the GOM Petrochemical plants. DPM still the Kings in the NGL market.

  • MarkWest Energy cut to Hold from Buy at Wunderlich [View news story]
    No place to go with the Yankee NGLs, UH OH!! The issue rests with getting ever growing Marcellus NGLs south to the industrial consumers in South Lousiana and The Texas Gulf Coast. Getting those BTUs to a burner tip is tougher the further production is from the burner tips. Northeast consumption is good, but seasonal, another UH OH!!

    Is DPM the NGL king due to their vast/existing NGL infrastructure? Long DPM!

    Jerbear,

    Those Muni Bond CEFs should take a jump in share price. I had begun to worry about Yellen raising rates too soon. The older I get the more allocated to Tax Avoidance! I remain concerned over Illinois and California continuing to resell an ever growing state retirement. Texas legislature is recognizing the same issue. Politicians don't have the business savvy to reduce the long term demand for funds into State Retirement. The Demand exceeds available revenue. This Hole is getting deeper and deeper, like Greece, UH OH!

    S&P Capitulation (possibly that elusive 10% decline?) is expected by August, a new a trader's profit potential begins.

  • Is There A Relation Between Seeking Alpha Followers And The Return Of S&P500 Stocks? [View instapost]
    I joined SA PRO and worked diligently trading on the PRO leads. I did eventually Profit from the enrollment expense and from the net trading. I found the SA PRO option worthy, but also that it is for those with youth and nimbleness.

    The majority of 2014 taxable profit did come from trading in stock, not oil & gas income. This is such a rapid/abrupt change from years prior to 2014!!

    I certainly enjoy SA as a blog site and have learned to follow some savvy Contributors and Commenters. Yes, I have beat the S&P in a couple of years since the 2009 crash and I attribute much of my stock trading gains to my personal SA digestion.

    LaQue,

    Domestic Drilling/Fracking continues in the sweetest producing areas, chasing declining returns. The inflection point for WTI price to begin increasing soonest will require those feeding the bubble to SHUT IN Wells to run extended Pressure Build Ups. Shut Ins for PBU won't happen!

    Domestic Producers sure want to avoid scrutiny from the Fed's Attorney General regarding Collusion to raise WTI prices. Have the Refiner's avoided such scrutiny, thus far, by successfully buoying gasoline prices as the WTI price continues decline.

    In Summary, WTI price will likely continue decline abscent any organizational leadership from the domestic producers. The insanity here has the Whitehouse "Oilbama" in bed with a Cartel known as OPEC.

    Real Power is available if the Domestic Producers create their cartel!
