  • Kinder Morgan: Is The Merger Actually Bad News For KMP Unitholders? [View article]
    ust keep wondering how long investors will continue to believe what ceo's & other wall st people tell them. what happened here did not surprise me at all. you dont get thrown" under the bus" just once & except in rare instances your " vote" is meaningless.thats the rigged game & its just a slow vegas.now if you still want to play & accept the fact that the insiders have a big edge your complaints will fall on deaf ears.mr kinder cares about mr kinder.if you loose too bad.if you win-lucky.lucent paid off my house 10 years early.recently new roof,tree work,brick work,new pool liner paid by wall st-luck as i bought all i could good cos in 2009.the analysts give you their opinions based on what info they collect but they dont know what goes on in the boardroom.im far from rich but investments(specially drips)really made my retirement.churchill once said something to the effect re democracy"its the best of the worst".i think this can be applied to capitalism in my opinion.

  • Left-leaning party sweeps to power in Canada’s oil-rich Alberta [View news story]
    i guess they can learn from the greek leftists.in our world today all that really counts is the bottom line.churchill said of democracy"its the best of the worst" & maybe that can be applied to capitalism.voters vote, mainly,their pocket book.lets see what happens in the UK on thurs.i read that mrs obama is worth $11 mil.dont know if true but i dont think she leans very left if it is.as for stupid who determines that definition?

    have to wait a little to see how this battery pack works & lasts & replcement costs.the biggest exercise in this country is "jumping to conclusions"before all the facts are in & i think the facts will take some time to"conclude".

    i bought all i could @$7.61 sh in 2009. at the current div my yield on this investment is 12.1% & will be forever as long as the div is not cut.who cares how much immelt earns or the buyback.in my retirement this is great income.it will be even better if the div is raised.using drips is great if you add during big dips.im an old geezer & i dont think i will see another 2008-9.my drips worked great with many great cos as i bought bargains along the way.$ cost averaging is fine if you are active & buy dips to lower the average plus i guess you might want to add the fees & commissions saved over the years.

    solar & electric storage is not quite as nice as advertised.its not so easy to clean the roof panels.its costly to replace storage equipment.considering the running expenses how long will it be before you have your investment back?will your roof need replacement while the panels are up there?will HE also begin to create energy by "sun" & lower the kwh price?
