  • Credit Suisse lifts view of MLPs, sees 40% upside on revision to mean yield [View news story]
    Bleed,

    Wrong. KMI was always the managing company and a C Corp.

  • Chevron Won't Be At $80 Levels For Long [View article]
    oilman, you are not one with a statement like that. CVX and XOM will be the last ones leaving the room and switching off the lights, but that won't happen in our lifetimes.

  • Kinder Morgan to boost U.S. Jones Act tanker fleet [View news story]
    Well, anything is possible, but it's doubtful if Kinder wants to get into managing an entire fleet of ships.

    Besides, there may be some kind of protective Greek restrictions to prevent this from happening.

    Javelina,

    So, what facts do you present to back up your rather definitive statement?

  • Southern Company: 4.8% Yield And Decades Of Dividends [View article]
    Despite Fanning and Co.'s confident predictions that all would be well, many (including me) worried about regulatory delays and cost overruns when the Vogtle thing was announced. A couple of years later, turns out those takes were right.

    And, coal gasification when the coal industry is dead and the EPA Nazis have totally excluded natgas from their long term energy plans? In other words, no carbon based fuels.

    Don't know; seems like maybe a toxic mix for investors, imo.

  • A Look At Drillers: Noble Corporation [View article]
    Good article.

    Me, I think that, if oil prices remain low for the balance of '15 and into 1Q '16, the likelihood of some sort of dividend cut is pretty high; not as drastic as ESV, though.

    I think the chance of a total suspension is very slight.

    Thanks.

  • Those Are Your Favorite Dividend Growth Funds? Try This One Instead [View article]
    For me, current yield is too low. Not enough time left on the life clock to see the benefit of DG.

  • Venezuela appeals again to World Bank panel in ConocoPhillips dispute [View news story]
    Doesn't matter what the appeal outcome is, they will never pay anyway.

    It's only a matter of time until the army kicks out Maduro and the rest of his Chavez-Lite gang.

  • Kinder Morgan: 2 Reasons Why Shares Of This 6% Yielder Are Still Languishing [View article]
    Pie,

    I think you have a little tiny typo in your second sentence, first paragraph, where you talk about SE's market cap and then state that "....and earned $930 BILLION (caps mine)."

    Millions, Billions, what the heck. LOL.

  • Kinder Morgan to boost U.S. Jones Act tanker fleet [View news story]
    Hampton,

    The Jones Act is anti-advantageous to foreign flagged fleets like DLNG's. Kinder's move has absolutely no benefit to DLNG.

  • Kinder Morgan to boost U.S. Jones Act tanker fleet [View news story]
    Leave it to Kinder to exploit every law and regulation, no matter how archaic (and the Jones Act is one of most), to their advantage.

    Love it! Long KMI.

  • The O'Shares FTSE U.S. Quality Dividend ETF: You're Dead To Me [View article]
    O'Leary already had a mutual fund house, which he and somebody named Connor O'Brien founded in 2008, and is headquartered in Montreal. There are 21 mutual funds (7 offer a hedged variety), and 4 CEFs in it.

    I think it's only open to Canadian investors.

  • The mREIT Roundup: A Quick Take On Several Of The mREITs [View article]
    Colorado,

    What's your buy price target for WMC? It's already scraping a 52 week low. And, Morningstar pegs price/book at .9

    I like that FCF exceeds the dividend and that the payout ratio is not upside down, as it is with many of these mREITs.

    Thanks.

  • My 4% Dividend Yield Portfolio: Why I Exchanged Universal For Main Street [View article]
    Ron,

    Considering that UVV fell $7.54 on Friday, I'd say that selling it was very timely, to say the least. Hope you got out early Friday and didn't shed too much blood.

    You went from tobacco to a BDC. I will have to re-read your November article to discern your investment strategy.
