  • Dividend Growth Investing FAQ [View article]
    DVK,

    This articles needs to be repeated annually for newbies to SA. Plus referred too between the annual release. A common sense living course about the 7th or 8th grade to include financial basics, bank accounts, balancing bank accounts, how to find a doctor, etc. is truly needed.

    A side note: in your JNJ dividend example you stated JNJ would likely increase their dividend in Feb., 2015. I believe that should be May, 2015. I would like it to be Feb.

    Wish you successful investing and a great Holiday Season.

  • Bakken Crude Trading At $41.75/Bbl Is Continental Resources' Quandary [View article]
    Michael F.,

    I disagree that the WTI is worthless. It is used in the contracts by which we sell crude. Rather than use a price set by the crude purchaser, which he can change at any time to his liking, the WTI is set by the bigger market. Certainly big bucks can change the WTI price by a large bet on any given day but he does it at his risk of loosing big bucks.

    Some of the OK producers sell crude based on WTI less a negotiated transportation fee. Particularly those within 50 miles of Cushing.

    Tony N. and Michael F.,

    The word is out here in Oklahoma, some of the ones who went north for work are now showing back up here. Agree, not completely holiday related.
    Do not have an opinion on CLR but prepared to operate on cash flow budget if necessary. Have done so before. The oil production business can be a feast to famine to feast to famine business!!!!!!!!
    Wish all successful investing. Be careful out there-Do your DD.

  • What You Can Do To Perhaps Avoid Dividend Cuts [View article]
    Chowder,
    I agree with your above comments however, while Line is a partnership, I would not do a direct comparison to pipeline partnerships. Line is an E&P partnership, which in my assessment means it is in more trouble than pipeline partnerships with the drop in crude prices. At least a pipeline can still move crude, ngl and nat gas for a fee, not directly tied to crude prices.

    Your quality comments are well taken. You have convinced me to look more closely at the quality of the companies in which I invest. I thank you for that. Keep preaching. It does sink in for a few of us.

    Wish you successful investing. Long KMI, CVX, COP, PSX, LNCO(!), MMP, OKE , OKS and many others.

  • Recent Buy: ONEOK [View article]
    Elz4107,

    Only time will tell whether the present management team at OKE will prove prosperous for shareholders. It is a different animal than it was several years ago. I've competed against and with the old OKE. Still know some of upper management. The past management I had high respect for over the years.

    As I stated above I'm long OKE and OKS. I've been in their business and like their story but only time will tell whether they make the correct future decisions.

    Wish all successful investing.

    Concerning the pipeline system of OKS--Gas or Crude?

    Most of the 'now' OKS pipeline system started out as nat gas pipelines with many processing plants between the gathering and transmission system. They also, with the Koch system, added ngl pipelines with fractionators and ngl storage. Recently OKS has added new crude pls. i.e. they want to get oily!

    Long OKS and OKE. Investor in OKE off and on for over 25 years.

    Wish all successful investing. Do your DD.

    rnsmth,

    I agree with you the energy sector is an area I will be adding too in the future. Near future? Maybe. Whenever, just be sure to add high quality companies. IMHO companies such as XOM, CVS, COP, MMP, KMI, etc.

    Wish you successful investing.

    DVK,

    Glad to see the articles but sad there will be no 2015 e-book. I'm one of those investors who do not like to re-invent the wheel. I get so many "idea gems" from so many authors and commenters on SA which I use as my own screening.

    Thank you and others for all your articles and comments.

    Good luck on the new house. I'll second the comment on windows and insulation. Don't forget air intrusion. Wrap the outside and inside walls. Don't forget the electrical outlets, the air can come thru them as well.

    Wish all a wonderful holiday season and successful investing.

  • ONEOK's Pain Will Turn Into A Gain Soon [View article]
    AA,
    OKE has no natural gas distribution assets. OGS (Nat gas distribution) was spun off as a separate entity. OKE is now basically the General Partner of OKS-Oneok Partners, an MLP. The majority of OKE's revenue is from OKS.

    I'm not negative on OKE, in fact, I own a significant number of shares of both OKE and OKS. I agree OKE is an okay buy at the present price.

    Wish all successful investing.
