  • Kinder Morgan: The Cat Is Officially Out Of The Bag [View article]
    Amazing the economic progress that can be made by sensible business policies. Maybe we'll have something like that in the states post-2016.

    Waiting now for the greens to come out of the woodwork.

  • Kinder's Trans Mountain: The Lowdown On Aboriginal Uprisings [View article]
    "It would seem timely for both ......groups to sit down and determine the best way to proceed with the pipeline,......."

    Kind of naive approach, IMO. Past history as taught us a few things about these "groups".

    --Often times they are organized by imported professional rabble rousers, many of whom are on a payroll basis.
    --They are intransigent; it has to be their way, period.
    --They use lawlessness, disruption, damage and violence as means to their ends.

    The only way to deal with them is through the courts and law enforcement.

  • 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.

    Colo,

    Based on your rather rambling and incoherent stream of consciousness, I believe you took a wrong turn on your way to the Sierra Club website.

  • 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.

  • AT&T: A Junk Bond Fooling Investors Who Expect More [View article]
    "Reckless" and "ruthless" are also trying to compete with and undermine Verizon. The consensus is that they don't have the wherewithal to sustain such efforts over the long run; that eventually T and VZ will squash them. So, while these are now distracting and expensive fights, they will dissipate in the forseeable future. Indeed, the only thing stopping "r & r" from being acquired are U.S. anti-trust laws.

    And, as the author grudgingly acknowledges, T is attractive to income investors; because, what's wrong with 5.75% junk bond type yield with at least 10 years of raises and a stable pps trend? Not too many junk bonds come with an A- credit rating, either.

    So while T is not a trader's stock, neither is it one to shun.
    Thanks.

  • Tough day for BDCs as Prospect Capital tumbles [View news story]
    I got savaged a few days ago by the PSEC cultists for expressing the opinion that I was glad that I dumped my shares a couple of months back. I was accused of being short, owning put options, being stupid and vile. Well, I haven't shorted PSEC (or any other equity), nor do I play options at all. Jury's out on the other two.

    I do feel pretty smug right about now, however...

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

    Congratulations on being so much smarter and well informed than most any other investor or analyst. It must be comforting for you to know this.

    Why don't you post your portfolio so that we ignorant investors can admire your brilliance and superior returns, and benefit from them as well?

    Breathless reports from the climate change alarmist Weather Channel tell us that these temps are even lower than January norms.
