    AMLP vs. KMR

    You may wish to consider KMR. Not only does the size of the Kinder Morgan family of equities make KMR likely able to refinance more easily when needed than the typical AMJ component company, you also have potential favorable tax treatment of dividends.

    On favorable tax treatment: KMR pays its dividends in stock. Thus, one incurs no tax until and unless one sells the new stock one gets as the dividend. This is already a great benefit for KMR. If the Bush tax cuts expire, it will be even more impressive of a KMR advantage.

    You might note KMR being up 55% in a sideways market yesterday, on volume that was more than double KMR's normal volume. Also, note it was steady to up in the last hour of trading yesterday, a nice daily chart characteristic (contrast SPY yesterday, for instance).

    If you profit on KMR, please consider donating some to an effective charity. Best wishes!
