    Why does KMP look like FB

    to uhlerf et al: right about the term dividend, yes Yahoo lumps all of it into their indication of "dividend" and I was just thinking and typing too fast when I made my posts. Sorry. Then the lincoln poster got me looking for the distribution rate for FMR. Both Bloomberg and Marketwatch listed it as "blank" in the dividend column, which as you point out is correct. So still in Marketwatch I had to click on a news article about FMR to find out its "yield" at about 6.6%. So "yield" is a good way to express all these distribution rates. So looking at FMR, for those who are in a high tax bracket FMR is the best choice, not the mlp. Kinder has purposely made KMI and KMR more advantageous to some investors for their growth rates in yield. The only problem is that now with the El Paso purchase and with Kinder Morgan as a whole being reputed to be "the second largest oil producer in the state of Texas", all their investment vehicles should (or will) trade with the price of oil(it is said by some). Traditional KMP owners usually believe that they are just owning mainly the flow-rate of the Kinder pipeline system(fees paid or contracts), so their shares should trade like Yield-paying shares.
