  • Punishment continues for BDCs  [View news story]
    Does MAIN have an upcoming equity offering? If so that won't be good news, either, although that effect would be temporary.

  • Kinder Morgan EPS of -$0.29  [View news story]
    What would Trump do?

    Come to think of it, he'd probably sue somebody.

    Gotta find SOME humor in this...trouble is, I'm too old to cry, but it hurts too much to laugh.

    With my luck, I'd sell it and it would immediately shoot up.

    I might just take a "LEAP" myself. Trouble is, I live in a 1 story dwelling.

  • Kinder Morgan: What's The Worst That Could Happen?  [View article]
    While I understand that KMI's share price will fluctuate with the overall energy sector, please explain why an oil price =< $20 would affect Kinder Morgan. They don't explore, drill or refine, do they? . If there's a glut because demand is down and prices are falling because everyone's still drilling like crazy, doesn't the stuff still have to be transported?

  • Investing Alongside A Value Investor Or A Value Destroyer  [View article]
    Eddie Lampert is a poster boy for the dark side of capitalism. He's going to profit no matter what, while some others lose their shirts.

    The sooner the he and his ilk disappear from the scene the better.

    A quality list of investments indeed. Nothing below investment grade. Smart.

  • Kinder Morgan should compensate if pipeline project approved, B.C. city says  [View news story]
    Typical left wingers. Always trying to fleece the corporations, who, incidentally, build the infrastructure, support the local economy via their taxes and provide jobs.

    The problem with all this is that if the economy is flourishing and people have jobs, these liberal locals can't buy votes with their free stuff.

  • 2015 Fourth Quarter Earnings: A New Start For Kinder Morgan  [View article]
    I didn't lose faith because of the dividend cut; in fact, I viewed it as a positive development. I lost faith before that.

    My fault; I ignored the tea leaves and caution lights, especially with regard to their rather reckless financial management. I put too much faith in one individual which won't happen again.

    I don't think KMI recovery is going to be a snap back or even a bump; rather a long uphill grind. At this point there's no alternative but to hang on to the shares and wait for an overall improvement in the sector, which will float KMI's boat as well.

  • Main Street Capital: I Have A Problem... I Can't Get That Grin Of My Face  [View article]
    I added a few more shares the other day, down around $27.39 Will buy some more <$27, to which it looks like it might drift.

    I think there's an upcoming equity offering which might present an even better buying opportunity.

    They've impaired my goodwill, that's for sure. My fault; I ignored the caution signs and tea leaves.

  • Selling Dividend Growth Stocks: Reluctantly Ending 'Forever' Marriages  [View article]
    If I'm holding fundamentally sound stocks and/or mutual funds, I don't touch them during market dives, and make sure I'm DRIPing. I just don't look at the statements very often...LOL.

    This approach worked for me in the last two such instances, 1999-2000 and 2008. Everything came back and then some.

  • Retirement Strategy: This Is A Dip I Will Not Buy Right Away  [View article]
    @Rick in CO & RS

    Great advice from you and RS, but how will we know when we hit the bottom? Does somebody come out and ring a bell?

    I buy now, more if things tank more. We're talking about fundamentally sturdy companies, of course, not the LINEs or NLYs of the world.

  • EPR Properties And The Share Price That Fell On Great News  [View article]
    IMO, EPR was a stock looking for an excuse to tank. I've been interested in it for a long time, but always felt it was overvalued. As far as I'm concerned, it still has a ways to drop before I consider buying...< $50.
