  • Why I'm Still Holding Yahoo Stock  [View article]
    Sinking ship. If you're still holding it's because you've got a thing for blue eyed blonds that will look you in the eye and lie.

    Not my idea of a good investment strategy...

    Picked up another 100 shares at $11.45. Good news at Ford is always bad news for the stock.

  • Kinder Morgan: The Case For Going Short  [View article]
    "I doubt most investors on this board even short, period."

    Writing calls against an existing position, is shorting the stock (in a way). I do it all the time. Currently I'm short 2/3 of my KMI position using weekly calls.

  • Kinder Morgan Announces Term Loan and Revolver Expansion; Expects No Need to Access Capital Markets in 2016  [View article]
    ...So, in other words, they are transferring the balance from one credit card to a new credit card... And adding new charges to the latter... Right?

    Like I replied, sounds like the debt load is still increasing.

    Disclosure: Painfully long KMI stock, and short calls on the position.

    ...a billion here, a billion there... Sooner or later we'll be talking a lot of money...

    Yeah, sounds like they are increasing the debt load. But my degree isn't in finance.

    Reminds me of an 18 year old with a brand new credit card and student loans to pay the minimum payments with.

    Money loser, but I'm glad the USAF bought them over the Airbus.

  • Kinder Morgan's (KMI) CEO Steve Kean on Q4 2015 Results - Earnings Call Transcript  [View article]
    Both losses I blame on the coaches and their coaching staff.

    Kinder Morgan is akin to an 18 year old with a new credit card and student loans to make the minimum payment with.

    Like I wrote, I'm painfully long KMI in my traditional IRA.

  • Kinder Morgan's (KMI) CEO Steve Kean on Q4 2015 Results - Earnings Call Transcript  [View article]
    As a Detroit Lions Fan (and season ticket holder), I keep hearing the same old thing: Next Year.... This conference call was like an end of season analysis.

    Disclosure: I'm very long KMI in my IRA. And have a gut wrenching loss in both value and income. I have been selling calls against the entire position. In true Lions fashion: I'll see what the 'Next' Quarter looks like.

  • Kinder Morgan: Time To Throw In The Towel?  [View article]
    "Burned investors can take solace in the fact that Richard Kinder has racked up substantially higher losses than all of us together."

    I'm am SO sick of authors including this and similar statements in their articles. So please everyone who writes this drivel: STOP!!!


    Trust me, Richard Kinder isn't feeling the same level of pain that the legion of small investors are.

    Long KMI (but selling calls against the position).

  • WSJ: Boston wins the battle for GE  [View news story]
    "I don't hate Michigan but your infrastructure is worse than Boston."

    State of the 70's. We like to refer to it as Retro....

    I believe we have potholes that date back to the early 19th century.

    "Soon Detroit will look healthier than Connecticut...."

    Actually, I don't know why southeast Michigan wasn't considered. We have major universities, a major airport with global reach, lots of tech companies, decent housing prices, lower taxes than MA, etc.

    Haters chime in...

    I may rebuild a position in F if it get's closer to $13. Look for a dividend increase soon.
