  • Linn Energy: In Need Of A $100 Oil And $4.50 Natural Gas [View article]
    Interesting, Richard, how your article has turned into a rip and Mark_A debate, both interesting and informative, and I won't say who I think scored what. But in all this concern, has anyone else been reading international news about the threats of Iran against Saudi Arabia today, Feb. 27, including the possibility of war, over the dictating of the price of oil within OPEC? Whether they would ever carry through with military action is debatable, but just the evident hostility is interesting. It may make us appreciate that we have a profit potential, and even a chance of $100 oil, in the debate over a company like Linn given that all United States energy companies could become important for preserving the national economy. Personally I don't like it that violent fools are entitled to dictate anything to the rest of us.

  • Wells Fargo likes Linn Energy's financial position but stays Neutral for now [View news story]
    I like both Linn and KMI within the oil and gas industry, but at this point I wish a lot more of it had been in KMI, a lot bigger ticket company and in pipelines which went up while Linn descended.

    I understand, rip, but if we're going to speculate on Linn's future with the only information we have, then also speculating on Blackrock is fair.

    And I also wonder, ziggyzig, why Blackrock isn't a significant part in this article? I thought Linn had portrayed Blackrock as a significant part of its outlook???

  • CVR Refining: A Feast Or Famine Distribution [View article]
    Thanks, Albert. That high a yield would be a real upper.

  • CVR Refining: A Feast Or Famine Distribution [View article]
    Albert--I am disenchanted with this group of companies being tied so closely to the fortunes of one man no matter how wealthy and intelligent he might be. UAN was the one I unwisely bought into when it was over $20. Do you think it might return to that level this year? If it can't get there I think I'm out of it or CVR for good. I don't want to ride with the unreliability.

  • Linn Energy - Why Upside Is Limited [View article]
    Casey--I agree that he's been rude. It's unfortunate that stresses can lead to being rude. I wrote a reply to you above that I hope you respond to. I wasn't trying to be rude myself by diverging from the subject because I highly respect your insight from the standpoint you chose, and I agree that oil will be the company's major income thrust for some time to come.

  • Linn Energy - Why Upside Is Limited [View article]
    I understand. I do agree that oil is the more important asset here for our immediate investment future in Linn. But for the very long term next half century, I get more excited about natural gas, Casey. I'm not suggesting at all that the world will run out of oil, but I am more excited by things like the number of utilities switching to gas and Linn's survivability to become a part of that. I am not among those trying to be critical of your article because I think you are offering a valuable perspective here. I am trying to explain where I am coming from. I am hoping Linn has gained the strength to carry it well into the future. I don't enjoy it at all that the company cut its dividend, but I support it if it changes it to a more reliable supportability to return in the future. I am not among the fortunate who can afford to lose money, but I support my logic instead of my fear anyway. Linn does have nasty looking debt, but I believe the company management has the competency to handle it.

    Casey--How do you see Linn's latest investments in natural gas fitting into this?

    Excellent article, Achilles. You could have said more, but you didn't have to. Your sentiments on Linn echo my own.

  • Kinder Morgan: A Highly Strategic And Accretive Silver Lining Materializes [View article]
    Tactical opportunity, yes. Good domestic industry move, yes. But is it also a move to prepare for an expanding American oil export market in the future?

    KMI's purchase of VOPAK assets announced today certainly enhances the outlook.
