  • Here's The Alarming Table Kinder Morgan Doesn't Want You To See [View article]
    Trust Hedgeye to serve up some sour grapes. Right now, if I was working for them, I'd be a cave somewhere licking my wounds, or at least in disguise and operating under an assumed name.

    What's next, a Barron's article?

  • Linn Effectively Admits To Misleading Investors And Announces Key Accounting Changes [View article]
    "I realize that commenters here are not a representative sample....."

    I respectfully. very respectfully, offer the opinion that 70 comments (and counting) DO in fact offer a "representative sample", even if you don't like the fact that the majority of them disagree with you.

  • Linn Energy: Tide Is Turning For This High Yielder [View article]
    Bret,

    Thanks for the timely article, even though I'm no longer long LNCO.

    You're one of the few writers we can count on for a calm, concise and objective outlook on investments.

  • Kinder Morgan Inc. - Dividend Fact Sheet [View article]
    I didn't buy KMI because I thought it offered the best dividend. I bought it because:
    --It's a C Corp. No fooling around with K-1s.
    --The Kinder group is the 500 lb. gorilla in the midstream biz, in my opinion.
    --BruceFern rails on about the GP. KMI essentially IS the GP, so why not own it?
    --While not paying the highest dividends (yes, they are dividends from KMI) the payout is respectable, and I'm not concerned about sustainability from this company.
    --Rich Kinder proved that he is an honorable guy by his actions at Enron (Read: The Smartest Guys in the Room) and subsequent exit.

    He's also in the business of getting SA to delete comments which disagree with his point of view. He does this quite nicely.

    I hate it when writers don't separate their paragraphs. Totally unreadable.

    They didn't pay enough attention in English Comp. class.

  • AT&T: What If You Bought At Market Highs? [View article]
    Trade.....

    Follower, but diverge from you on this one.

    In 40 years of investing, and by learning the hard way...NEVER, NEVER buy anything at tops. Never. And no, folks, it ain't "different this time".

  • Kinder Morgan: There Is No Need To Worry [View article]
    Headline: "THERE IS NO NEED TO PANIC......"

    Followed by:

    "There seems to be a lot of pessimism surrounding the Kinder Morgan group....."

    So who's pessimistic or panicking? Certainly not Mr. Market. Stock's up 15% in the past few months and 2% today alone.

    Getting sick of this and other breathless apocalypse headlines followed by Milquetoast articles-this time about Kinder, two in one day; by this author and Clark. Who's responsible, the authors or SA?

  • ConocoPhillips Is An Attractive Investment [View article]
    Why? Look back to Nov '12. The average U.S. voter is spectacularly uninformed as to the issues of the day and could neither point out their state on a map nor name the Vice President of the United States.

  • Column: Jeff Immelt is the American Canada needs to lead oil sands clean-up [View news story]
    Yeah, I guess that GE would have a lot of experience cleaning up environmental disasters. They learned well after polluting the upper Hudson River for decades, and only taking action when forced to do so by govt. entities.

  • Report: Oil going through distillation tower not impacted by crude export ban [View news story]
    I don't think the "devastating economical" (you did mean economic, right?) figures were the result of oil prices.

    The consensus is that it has to do with the ACA sucking the air out of the economy.

  • Seadrill: Beware The Unsustainable Dividend [View article]
    tassi,

    Read the disclosure on top of the page. Author has no position, no plans to initiate one. Disclosure is a legal requirement.

    It's good that you like the stock, but respect others' opinion as well. Not everyone who disagrees with you does so for nefarious reasons.

    wgrogers,

    Yes, after it was too late to edit, I realized that 'nicely' was not the appropriate word. Should have said he does it quite well.

    He is the nastiest and most thin-skinned author on SA to those who dare to criticize his negative articles. He does however, generate page turns and also advertises; thus, he has clout with the editors.

    Why doesn't somebody just ask Buffett? I'm sure he'd answer...he has an opinion on everything.
