  • DCP Midstream Partners' (DPM) CEO Wouter van Kempen on Q2 2015 Results - Earnings Call Transcript. [View article]
    Went to Edgar's SEC filings and nothing jumped out regarding an HSR, but maybe it was less than the transactional amount requiring HSR?

    "HSR"
    Revised 2015 Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Thresholds—Effective February 20, 2015
    Filing thresholds under the Hart-Scott-Rodino (HSR) Act will increase by about half a percent (0.5%) effective February 20, 2015. The new, higher thresholds apply to all transactions closing on or after that date but before the next round of adjustments takes effect in early 2016.

    Most transactions valued over $76.3 million, closing on or after the effective date, will trigger an HSR filing as a result of this year's adjustments, which reflect growth in the Gross National Product (GNP).

    Parties entering transactions which would satisfy current HSR thresholds but not trigger a filing based on the adjusted figures should keep in mind that it is the closing date—not the date of the agreement—which governs which set of thresholds will apply. Although parties are allowed to submit a filing if their transaction satisfies the current thresholds, regardless of when their transaction is set to close, those for whom the new thresholds put them outside the reach of HSR have the option of simply waiting until February 20, and then closing without a filing.

  • Commodity Producers - Warren Buffett Doesn't Peddle Dividends [View article]
    "While these firms must compete with others for capital in the equity markets, it is currently a time for concern about survival"!

    Merger Mania is moving closer and the likely Best Alternative to reducing/eliminating the divvy/distribution "Death by 1000 Cuts".

    The Sale Signal comes on any reduction in Divvy/Distribution.

  • GM: Is It Time To Back Up The Truck? [View article]
    Will the Unions allow Tesla to threaten their Unfunded Pensions? The Unions remain in firm control of GM's decision making. The Unions have evidently allowed the unfunded pension liability to remain subservient to managment's attempts keeping lipstick on the GM Pig.

    I can't imagine the Fed raising rates helps selling cars.

    Too many ominous head winds to add more GM to my portfolios.

  • U.S. Tight Oil Production Decline [View article]
    Mr. Hamilton,

    Good Data. Agree with last three paragraphs.

    How do Producers keep shareholders and repay their debt holders as these "major shale producers like EOG, Whiting, Pioneer, and Devon reported before-tax losses each of the last two quarters"?

    How can Iran and Iraq production increases be any part of a solution for our Domestic Producers?

  • Natural Gas Is Likely To Head Higher [View article]
    Gigem,

    Collateral Damage:
    Texas is realizing the result of declining Tax Reciepts from Severance Tax. Declining property tax values have AdVal receipts tanking. Texas Royalty owners too! My horns were trimmed wishing for $3 nat gas, but maybe the eternal optimism delivers before 2017?

    Hoping wellhead economic limits are not tested before 2017. Shut-in wells rarely offer much production once re activated. Plug and Abandon lists may grow.
