I'm new to this stock , I spent the weekend
reading up on PVX and PPL . As a stand alone
company ,my opinion PVX would be my pick. Also
a lot of positive with them together. They can
take on a lot larger projects to start with. I
bought a lot of PVX today. One of the big reasons I like them together is , both are into
( LNG ) Liquid Natural Gas. That is going to be a
very big business in the U.S. and a lot of profit can be made. The U.S. will also be exporting LNG in the future. The real big money
will be in exporting LNG. Good luck.
"One of the big reasons I like them together is , both are into

Neither are into LNG.
You seem to be confusing NGLs (natural gas liquids) with LNG (liquified natural gas).
They are not the same at all.
NGLs are things like propane, butane, ethane, etc.
LNG is mathane liquified for shipping.
PVX is involved in NGL processing but has nothing to do with LNG.
I agree it's a decent investment but I'd advise you to do better research before you invest.
Anything that has a 20+% gain in one day needs to be reevaluated.
Always look at upside potential vs. downside risk. My upside potential, between gains and dividends, had already been realized. The extra 20% was just gravy.
Now it has been taken over by a company that I have little information on, and they are making several promises which, if kept, might mean that this could continue to be a good hold. But these are only promises, and in this market, promises are not always kept. Lots of downside risk if they cannot perform. So I will "take the money and run", and stick with my plan of steady growth, regular dividends, and a product that makes sense.
Sounds pretty simple, but it works for me.
I have held PVX since 2009, and with my gain and dividends, I have a more than 100% return.
That being said, I have been very happy with PVX, as it has shown consistent growth, paid regular dividend, and been a very good component of my portfolio.
I am a rather conservative investor (I am over 60), and don't like to take unnecessary risks or hold companies that have a lot of "ifs" and "maybes" in their futures.
So, while there may be substantial future gains, and the promises may come to fruition, I prefer to take my one day 20% gain from yesterday, and sit on the sidelines for a while.
You younger guys may see it differently, but I have made enough money here, and I will still be happy tomorrow.
It is a shame, but PVX was such a nice "HOLD".
Don't know who Pembina Pipeline is, and information is scarce. What I DO know is that they trade on PK, and they do not pay a dividend. There is little other information readily available. Think I will take the money and run, at least until I have more information.
It's been nice.
