Cramer's cable audience is really not that big and the Motley Fool are a bunch of idiots. The reason to own SE is because of all the investment they are putting in to pipe and midstream between now and 2020 and the MLP's that they can use to raise money and share in their investments.
I worked for a utility for many years and I know a lot more about these investments and the financials than these idiots ever will. Plus I have a friend who is a retired banker who invests in the same securities. You have to have faith in your own ability.
SE also has the JV with PSX that operates DCP partners. They are huge in NGL's and midstream operations. In the short term NGL prices have hurt SE some, but long term this is the future of feed stocks for plastics in the US. There partner PSX, through it's CP Chem JV is installing 5 chemical crackers in the US. PSX has deep pockets so when you consider what SE controls you have to look at the JV and PSX's ability to help the funding.
Finally don't forget about the huge gas distribution company in Southern Canada. Not just a pipeline company. All of my grandchildren own both SE & PSX in UGMA's.
