Given that KM* must first absorb and then divest a large portion of El Paso, I doubt a stock split is in the near term future. And remember, a split creates no added value, it simply alters the number of shares owned and the price. I haven't posted to this MB in almost 2 years and the same inane comments are still being bandied about; which is why I've basically stopped posting. King Richard (Kinder) has plenty of plans for the future of the KM* family of companies. Quit trying to second guess one of the smartest CEO's in the country and take down your Christmas tree instead.
