  • What To Expect From Chesapeake Energy In 2014 [View article]
    $CHK has some thin skinned followers, please don't tell me that Seeking Alpha has become the land of the internet trolls just looking for some place to be negative. Don't like it, just move along. Obviously mother less children.

    @Trefis....thanks for posting.

  • Kinder Morgan Energy Partners Makes A Strategic Error [View article]
    Great article, great discussion....wrong title. During a week that we are starting a small, long term, end of year position in FRO [early? flame away], I think Rich Kinder is knocking the cover off the ball, again.

  • Seadrill: High Earning Visibility Makes It A Buy [View article]
    Please, none of my brokers can all show the same dividend amount at the same time, accept when we get paid. And that's all that matters. When any of us talk about dividends on Seeking Alpha it is like horse shoes. If we need exact numbers we are all [or most of us] grown ups here, we'll get them before we put money at risk.

  • Seadrill: High Earning Visibility Makes It A Buy [View article]
    The Iran play is a smoke screen, the media and industry outsiders have treated the news as if Iran has not been able to sell oil. Well they have and can barely keep up with orders as it is. It will be years if not decades....if ever that Iran will be able to produce or manage their production or refining capabilities. For me another plus for SeaDrill to have steered clear.

  • Retirees: What Is The Best Choice For A Small Income Portfolio? [View article]
    Good to point that out to folks. This is why we hold KMR in our IRA' s and KMP in our regular accounts we draw income from. I get the fear of K1 for your sister but most of us shouldn't let that shy us away. If your tax man charges an additional penny to include them.....get another tax man.

    English and grammar lessons are not needed here, the average investor is smart enough to get it and does not care. Great article Bob.

    So we all agree, Uncle Warren doesn't just hold for ever. He actually does take some profits. Long XOM COP

  • Seadrill's Dividend Does Not Look Sustainable [View article]
    I am OK with that and have total faith. I don't view the dividend action in SDRL like we do KO, PG, JNJ etc. This is more of a REIT mentality...and I am OK with that. Let the dividend pull back to a healthy level.

  • The Portland-Montreal Pipeline is the latest battleground in a protracted campaign by anti-oil sands’ groups to choke off Canadian access to U.S. markets. The operator of the little-known pipeline linking Montreal and Maine is studying how to make the line the first route to get Canadian oil sands crude to an Atlantic deepwater port, but the plan relies on supplies that may not be available for years. [View news story]
    What pipeline?

  • The 'Retire Young' Portfolio: Let's Introduce This Oil Company [View article]
    Usually 15% [in June I think it was] lifted right from the dividend before I even see it.

  • Coca-Cola: How Safe Is The Dividend? [View article]
    Time for a pull back in KO? Please let the markets turn against them, it's been the only chance we have ever had to add to our positions over the recent decades. Like some readers have mentioned, all time highs, a way of life for the Coke investor.

  • Digging Into Seadrill's Dividend [View article]
    Long_on_oil is spot on here. You can't compare the SDRL business model to anything else in the oil patch right now. The traders [and writers] that understand this model have learned and earned in the Real Estate REIT market for years. It's not for the average investor who reads everything they can about the Graham and Buffett models that will "get' the SDRL model. We don't require the "must grow the dividend a little every year" in this position. In fact most of us that follow and own SeaDrill will not be put off by a reduction in dividend when new builds come on line and there is a slight pull back in earnings for a couple of cycles. It almost gives us more confidence in management.
