  • Kinder Morgan's Fair Value: $29 Per Share [View article]
    Then really short it...and see who pays/paid :) if you believe what you say. As for me I see progress and growth...oh yea, and dividends.

  • Air Canada Is Beginning To Take Off [View article]
    Just returned home after taking a horrible flight on one of their AirBus316 to Vancouver from LAX. First of all the plane was packed, stews clueless, and most of all the seats are for midgets! The seat in front of me jammed my knees because from the back of my tail bone to the back of the seat in front of me was 3" too short so for over 3 1/2 hrs I was prostrate and that was BEFORE the person in front of me tilted their seat back-AGGggggg. My back was out for 3 days! It appeared that the 1st Class???seats were not too much better, but I wouldn't know. We will NEVER fly Air Canada again OR a AB316.

  • Trans Mountain pipeline expansion would be "disastrous," mayor says [View news story]
    I too am long on KMI (&previously KMP). Just returned from Vancouver again and found the bus transportation outstanding. The streets are littered with liberalizes, tree huggers, and mostly 30ish people that party 'till 3-4am many nights...sleep most of the day except when hustling $. Marijuana shop on every block with lots of traffic in and out in downtown.
    Artists predominate Commercial avenue still the younger set but 35-50yr bracket and have jobs, care about one another, and live minimal probably within their income...not as many marijuana shops there.

  • Should You Buy Garmin's Dip? [View article]
    I like Garmin GPS units as I use an older one for my car and one in my boat that I probably won't replace with a new one. I'm not a sports fanatic that must have a Garmin watch...but many fanatics prefer Apple. Lot of competition for the built-in vehicle GPS's so it's probably a commodity now. Flight is another matter and looks initially good for Garmin.
    HOWEVER, giving a 21% incentive pay for last year after I lost over 17% on MY investment does not endure them to me at all! I have put in a SELL order.

  • Sunoco to buy Energy Transfer Partners retail assets in $816M deal [View news story]
    Let's not forget that ETP owns they discussed this over a cup of coffee and decided to do this deal. I've watched ETP drop since I invested in it. Let's hope that this $ adds to the individual stock holders.

  • How Did Hyundai Increase Sales in January? [View article]
    We bought a new 2011 Hyundai Sonata LTD and have had perfect performance with it. MPH ~29 [w/ECO] , brakes, wipers, etc-perfect STILL (3/17/15). Yes, we do change oil (blended), battery & tires and put a custom air filter on but got full use from OEM :)! It's my wife's car and she truly loves it. The passenger seat is low and only slides front/back, but drivers seat is fully adjustable and comfortable. Looked into buying stock and it's...well-a hassle and doesn't do much.

  • 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.
