  • 3 High Yielding, Undervalued Utilities, Part I: National Grid [View article]
    Thanks for the more in-depth and accurate response. I guess I was shooting from the hip, generally speaking.

    Always respect your knowledge and input.

    I understand there are, and always have been, a wealth of economists in Washington, DC, too (?). Could you guys get back to the forum, pleeease ?

    @Fundflow > Ref: "........NEE tank over the summer". Unfortunately, Utes are affected by the Acts of Nature (ie: hurricanes, storms, tornados, ice/wind, etc.). You may recall the destructive hurricane Sandy that was devastating to the majority of NEE service area. Due to the costs (loss) of destruction, reconstruction and loss of income/revenue, it is quite obvious that short term investors and institutions 'unloaded'. Additionally, Ute stock prices are also seasonal, to some extent, and always influenced by anticipation of interest increases. Normally, this presents a BUY opportunity.

    Ref: "....insights or words of wisdom on NEE ?" I firmly believe that Bob has done an exceptionable job in his Article. Perhaps your question would warrant a review of the Article.

  • The Europeanization Of U.S. Utilities, Part 2 [View article]
    @manya05 > Yes, 'energy storage' would definitely be the (hypothetical) solution, however, the current technology is grossly inadequate to meet any appreciable demand. A Hydro Electric Pumped Storage Facility is the closest technology, but is highly restricted by locale, economics and requires an alternate energy source during low demand periods.

  • Westport Innovations: The Future In Natural Gas Technologies [View article]
    I have been a stockholder of WPRT and CLNE for several years and still remain long. This is indeed the future to foreign independence and resolution to environmental issues. Unfortunately, Obama and the oil Lobbyist cannot (or will not) support the development of this major asset. NG (CNG/LNG) will never replace the demand for fossil fuels, only reduce the demand and prices.

    Jon, Another excellent Article. I've been an SO investor for over 30 years with DRIP along with many other utilities. IMO SO has always had the best management team, bar none.

    @Brad> Another winning Article. We all must be prepared to "eat crow" occasionally, for it's consistent with voicing an opinion and investing. Don't be concerned with a few crows when you fly like an eagle. A guiding 'Beacon' for all your readers. Keep up the good work.

  • Japan's Mitsui agrees to buy 30% of Kinder Morgan’s (KMI, KMP) Sierrita Gas Pipeline, which will connect an existing link at Tucson, Ariz., with Sasabe on the Mexican border, a 62-mile route expected to cost ~$200M to build. The pipeline will transport ~200M cu. ft./day of gas and is due to begin operating by Sept. 2014. Mitsui says KMI also will sell a 35% stake in the pipeline to Mexico's Pemex. [View news story]
    What will this mean to the US economy ? More foreign ownership and foreign profits. Sure hope the 'price is right' plus royalties.

    @Mike > Tesla is "cult-like", too ? Is this what you're implying, rather indirectly ? If so, then I will make the same request to you : Please explain (off site).

    Still waiting to hear from Smurf....................
