  • March Dividend Madness - How Are You Positioned? [View article]
    Long O, KMI, and VZ, the latter two fairly recently.

    T not anywhere in the brackets? Don't own, but thinking about it.

  • Is Kinder Morgan A Good Dividend Pick? [View article]
    fredj,

    You have no clue what von's portfolio size is. So, you can't really comment with a basis in facts, can you?

  • Is Kinder Morgan A Good Dividend Pick? [View article]
    @alschroed,

    Wasn't the company accused in the Barron's article of doing the exact opposite? That is, funneling all the profits from the pipeline to KMI and neglecting pipeline maintenance and capex.

  • Dumb Investment Of The Week: Junk Bond Funds [View article]
    I'm a big fan on VWAHX, Vanguard's high yield muni fund, which has an average portfolio rating of BBB, thus not your everyday crappy junk fund. Nonetheless, it's done a good job on yield, low expenses, as well as protecting capital.

    Rumors are that Vanguard will be introducing an ETF for this fund. Even better.

    Thanks.

  • Kinder Morgan: Bloomberg Is Too Bearish On MLPs [View article]
    Rich Kinder is the de facto GP. He pretty much is KMI. So the author is not entirely correct in his assessment of KMI, when he says there is no owner GP. Remember, it's de facto.

  • Kinder Morgan: Bloomberg Is Too Bearish On MLPs [View article]
    Meredith at least had some creds, before the bond predictions, anyway.

    On the other hand, What is an Andrew Bary, the clown at Barron's? Anyone see his "like" stocks in Saturday's article? Looks like he's lifting Morningstar ratings into his drivel.

    Nice to see us acting in our own interests, for a change.

    Now, if the SEALS could get this done, it strains credulity for the govt. to tell us that there was no action they could have taken during the Benghazi tragedy.

  • General Electric: More Positives For The Stock [View article]
    What's the opinion on buying the spinoff? The credit business contributes mightily to the bottom line, except for that, uh, little reverse spike in '08-09. It's likely to be profitable going forward, assuming lessons learned.

  • Westar Energy: A Solid Company With A Generous Dividend - Selling At A Discount [View article]
    I don't think I'd categorize WR as a trader's stock. To me it's buy and hold for the dividend.....cap. appr. is a bonus. Long at 30, so am a happy camper.

    Didn't remember that we disagreed about LINE. You must have been, or are, long.

    With a company like WR, I can see in black and white their results.

    With LINE, VNR and others of that ilk, fundamentals all look red. Too many leaps of faith relying on hedges, etc.

    WR is about as low maintenance as equites get.

    Long and DRIPing, so will take advantage of the price weakness automatically.
