Well, first of all I believe hedgeeye is not a hedge fund, they tried to be but failed to raise the necessary funds. So hedgeeye founders started this investment advice service instead. So hedgeeye does not yet make the standard hedge fund "2+20". This I found out by just doing some internet research.
Second, investors must take responsibility for their own decisions. One person's lose can be another person's gain. I have profited from the scare tactics and misinformation these boiler room operator's deploy, on LINE. As far as Kinder Morgan is concerned, I have owned KMR since 2004, paid off my mortgage with some of my profits. Now I have no debt, and no need to sell KMR. KMR is the "bond" part of my investment plan.
Third, The current drama with hedgeeye is GOOD for long term investors. Keeps Kinder and his employees on their toes. Now RICH Rich Kinder does not have to be over demanding of his employees, Wall Street is being over demanding. Good guy Rich Kinder is here to defend his employees. In the long run hedgeeye is helping Rich Kinder build a better Kinder-Morgan then it currently is.
Added some today at 74.50. 7%+ yield with $10-$12 price appreciation possible, hard to sit on the sideline.
My last add was at $55 two years ago. A month and 1/2 until ex-div. Insider buying. Lot of positives.
carefull what you wish for. Its nice to get opportunities to buy on the dip. But these type of ANALyists can do some real damage before recovery. Hedgeeye almost managed to derail the BRY\LNCO deal. That would have been signifcant damage.
I read an article on Hedgeeye and I would say that I am not impress, It is along the line of a report that Ric Edelman was talking about, that doing the opposite what annalist recommend produces a superior return and that following the recommendation will produce a lost. He say short, you buy, you win.
