  • 5 Myths About SeaDrill That Could Cost You Real Money [View article]
    Elliot, thanks for your interesting analysis. John F. is always a mystery and no one knows what he is planning inside his head. Probably the same with all successful people. Appreciate your work. Regards.

  • BreitBurn Energy Partners LP: A Closer Look At Assets And Valuation [View article]
    Creese, I think SDRL will come back after Obama stops playing tough guy with Putin. Deep sea oil was there before this President and will go on after he is retired. John Fredericksen (sp?) is no fool. Good luck.

  • Seadrill: Perspective From Russia [View article]
    Vladimir, good article. Whatever happens, oil is precious to the world, whether the liberals like it or not. They all drive vehicles as far as I know. Long SDRL.

  • Enterprise Products announces two-for-one stock split [View news story]
    Fred, you are right, nothing changes but the costume it wears! Look at Berkshire Hathaway--Buffett doesn't ever split and I think it keeps the playful traders out of the game--who has that kind of money to gamble. Maybe best to let it ride up and up. Any comments?

  • Linn Energy's Acquisition Of Devon Energy's Natural Gas Assets Is A Good Move [View article]
    I feel that there exists too much attention to growing distributions when the current distribution is relatively high. Look at Ferrell Gas (FGP). A steady $2.00 dividend and the analysts love to hate it. Good enough for me, I bought in at $16 and it is up to around $27. Company continues to grow and acquire smaller dealers. Sounds like a good investment.

  • Retirement Strategy: How Owning Higher Yielding Stocks Can Offer Greater Income [View article]
    Michael, your philosophy is good if it pleases you, but remember if you make $1,000 in one year and blow it on a vacation or some other recreation, you are doing nothing for your future. Planning for retirement is a different idea.

    Bought into EPD when it was $25.61, wish I had gone deeper--so much for wishing! Great company.

  • Kinder Morgan: One's Bark Is Always Worse Than One's Bite [View article]
    Excellent, clearly written. While the whole mess is politically-driven, I hesitate to guess the outcome of either pipeline. Nice article. Mr. Clark. Thank you.

  • Enterprise Products Partners: A Valid Alternative To Kinder Morgan [View article]
    An excellent stock, we acquired 2,800 shares several years ago at $25.61 and have enjoyed the return and its rise to over $70 in that time frame. Excellent company.

  • Kinder Morgan Management: Have Your Cake And Eat It Too [View article]
    Ong, congratulations on a well-written and easy to understand article about some very complex information. My first foray into Kinder Morgan family as I have always invested in EPD, LINE, SDRL, SFL, TOO, NMM, etc., etc.
    Nice time to buy KMR and avoid taxes as my CPA advised that I was approaching a jump from the 15% bracket to 25%--not nice.
    All the best and keep it up!

  • Linn Energy: Learn To Love 'Boring' [View article]
    Jerry, agree with most of your comments, even if $60 is too optimistic, I don't mind as long as the company prospers under good managers and pays a decent dividend.
    As to the idea that America is rich in oil and gas which should be sold as the markets come along, esp. places like Japan where the people fear nuclear generation and might welcome paying for our exports.
    The only stumbling block I see is the debacle in the White House and Congress exemplified by the XL goofing around until after the elections this November--childish playing with the nation's valuable resources to say nothing about jobs delayed or even lost forever.
