  • Morgan Stanley: Kinder Morgan deal an overall plus but with some downside [View news story]
    In an IRA/Rollover account where tax implications are non-existent, it is very good for my retirement account.

  • InsiderScore: Insiders warming to some energy names [View news story]
    I admire Mr. Kinders' tenacity and conviction buying his own stock in KMI AND KMP. I do wonder where he gets the $ millions to do so but if you are convinced that the company is much better investment-than DO invest in your own company. I am very heavy and long on KMP and 6 months in KMI (glad I don't have to sell now :) )

  • Home Improvement Hoedown! Who Has The Better Balance Sheet: Home Depot Or Lowe's? [View article]
    I shop at both HD & LOW as a consumer undergoing major home remodel locally (So.Cal). A year ago, HD was vastly superior in service; now LOW has ramped up service and bought another chain hardware corporation...thus lower "retained earnings" recently. I see LOW becoming equal with HD and a tough choice for investment purposes. Local culture at both have improved dramatically because of the competition.

  • Rich Kinder 'Does His Job' [View article]
    Thank you for carefully looking into this matter and this report on KMI/KMP for which I am very long on and heavily into. It's hard to trust many because we lost $79,000 at ENRON and had no idea of the things allowed "off the books." Oh, I too added to my position.

  • Kinder Morgan companies rise as Hedgeye releases critical report [View news story]
    If KM is shorting maintenance than it could be a Very volatile situation...especially now that someone has brought attention to it. Politicians and investors will have major spook if any spills or leaks ensue in the near future!

  • Kinder Morgan companies rise as Hedgeye releases critical report [View news story]
    I took a bath on Enron and hope that Rick is not duplicating any of the "off the books" accounting Enron did. I'm heavy on KMR & KMI and watching closely to any spills or financial tricks Enron did.

  • Kinder Morgan Partners (KMP -1.6%) cancels plans for the 277K bbl/day Freedom pipeline that would have given refiners on the U.S. west coast such as Valero (VLO) and Tesoro (TSO) a direct stream of West Texas crude. KMP says it did not receive enough interest to commit to building the $2B project, and will switch its focus to crude-by-rail projects in Texas and California. [View news story]
    I read that Valero (VLO) recently purchasied several refiners in So. California opted OUT of the opportunity and commitment for the KMP pipeline as they have extensive train exposure and "wanted to keep their options open."
