    How much of the drop is due to economic expectations vs. the end of major mainline upgrade projects?

    This is probably the best course of action to take. Keep up the good work. Your name is one of the first I mention when new SA readers that I meet in person ask for recommendations to follow.

  • Kinder Morgan’s new convertible shares have 9.75% coupon  [View news story]
    Conversion price is variable. Shares convert at par when KMI is $30.88 to $36.284. If share price is less than $30.88 bondholders will get a fixed number of KMI shares valued at less than $1,000. If share price is greater than $36.284 bondholders will get a fixed number of KMI shares valued at more than $1,000 (but not worth as much as having owned the underlying shares outright).

    No. Berkshire takes the dividends as cash with decisions to add more to a position decided independently of dividends received.

    Isn't this owned by Electrolux and not GE? General Electric sold its appliance division for $3.3 billion last year.

    Just a heads up - It's been a couple months since your article was published and I just received what appears to be the same mailer touting this junky stock. Looks like its still being pushed.

  • OPEC is "throwing in the towel" - SocGen  [View news story]
    USD is up closer to 10% than 35% in that time period as measured by the US Dollar Index. There are few notable 15% moves (JPY for example). The only major currency I see with a 35% drop against the dollar is the Russian Ruble.

    Excellent point. I neglected the cash taken out of the business when looking at the return. Buffett did well.

  • Buffett wins again on BNSF purchase  [View news story]
    This investment doubled five years after a recession. Sounds like a normal return. The S&P 500's total return in that same period is roughly the same.

    If someone is actually building a big stake, I would bet it's someone who wants to push for creation of a REIT for the real estate assets.
