"Yes, I have 15000 shares and we are down .50 cents.......that's a $7500 loss..."
Did you happen to notice the market's still open & KMI is still trading?
"Tell me genius... how did you spin your own words into KMPs basis when you clearly said KMI..."
As usual, dogpoo, your failure to comprehend what you read is nothing short of amazing. First: I DIDN'T post the quote you attribute to me. Second: What you paid for your shares when it was KMP remains your basis in KMI. You DIDN'T pay additional money at the time of the KMP/KMI merger, so the shares of KMI you received, LESS the cash you received in the merger, divided into the money you originally paid for KMP is your ACTUAL cost basis. Or did you, out of the goodness of your heart or weakness of your mind send extra money to Rich Kinder to keep him off the Dole?
"an ignorant post.... as KMI has never traded in the teens so I would love to know how a long has a basis in the teens...."
Another illustration of the BS of dogpoo. KMP split TWICE in the years from 1997 to 2014. Anyone who bought before 2001 (2nd split) has a cost of LESS than $20. I bought in 2000 @ $50 so I caught the 2nd split. In addition, dogpoo apparently hasn't ever heard of MLP ROC which REDUCES the holders original cost---its the deferred taxable income, which became taxable on the reorganization, that some MORONS are complaining about having to pay in the 2014 tax year---each time it occurs. All in all I have a cost in the teens because of these two factors.
Dogpoo, who fancies himself Mr Wall Street, is so ignorant of MLP organization that he is unaware of either of these two factors that he "I would love to know how a long has a basis in the teens...."
Well NOW you know nitwit.
"It's Simply Good Fortune For Blackberry And Indicates Nothing Is Wrong With Their Products."
Having to pay carriers to use your products indicates nothing is wrong with your products? Where does this "indication" hold true?
Oh that's right, in the MENSA kingdom of Rimmbecillia.
"Lock to see sub $36 before Cristmas"
OK with me. I was a KMP holder & my present 550 shares of KMI originally cost me LESS than the cash I received in the merger.
"Keep up to pace ... short 9300 KMI @ $41.74"
Forgive me because I really hate to call a prevaricator a LIAR but... In the slim possibility that you are not stretching the truth as to number of shares/price short, let us all know how the cost of the KMI dividend you'll be paying feels. Yeah I know, if the dividend payment comes along or the price of KMI tops $41.74 you'll have miraculuosly covered the KMI at a few pennies above the low to that point.
You gotta love dogpoo's reasoning & factual arguments, they are----well dogpoo at its best.
Statcounter's latest figures show BBRY outselling all smartphones & tablets by a factor of 10. And we all know statcounter is 100% accurate! So BBRY should be the leading phone & tablet vendor by the end of 2015 at the latest.
You heard it here first----many times.
"BP has legal issues still"
That's why BP is so cheap on most financial metrics.
EEP is an American Master Limited Partnership (MPL) while ENB is a Canadian C corp and the General Partner of EEP.
What MLPs are & what GP of an MLP has to with said MLP is too complicated to go into. Google MLP & GP & read the hits for further info.
now switched to a EPD is better than KMI---according to the investment guru dogpoo of course.
This new argument is based on the price action of KMI after 3 WHOLE DAYS of trading after the merger.
What will dogpoo's argument switch to next? Anyone want to guess?
If you agree with dogpoo's incessant whining give a thumbs up.
If you disagree with dogpoo's incessant whining give a thumbs down.
I can't vote on my own post but add one down thumb for me.
Let the tally begin!
"Anyone know ?"
No, but based on the multiple idiot posts you 7 fishinanddreamiing have made regarding the "scam" merger. I know you don't have a clue regarding the worth of WPZ post merger.
"Yes, you are betting. Good luck with your bet. I'm not a gambling man, myself. "
You buy shares in public companies and you say, "I'm not a gambling man, myself."
Really? What would you call the average investment---long or short term---if not "a gamble?"
"Some people do talk out of their #$%$, as you well know, about a subject they know nothing about."
Yeah, and you've proved that you're one of the worst.
The GOOD news: No, KMI is a C corp so they can be put in a tax deferred account.
The BAD news: You can't transfer individfual stock into a tax deferred account from a taxable account. You can only contribute money into a tax deferred account. So you would have to sell the KMI you got for the KMP shares & contribute that money to the to the tax deferred account however many years that may take. Then you can buy the KMI in the tax deferred account.
I aree, or maybe self delusional hope, that longstreet is right. I'm in at 16.985 several minutes ago---uh oh we're on our way to $10 for sure.
Finally found the statement: http://financedotyahoo.com/news/hannon-armstrong-announces-144-million-202800156dothtml.
Replace the "dots" with a period (.) in the above URL
"I'll likely add HASI to my holdings next week. Thanks for the comment. What are the prospects for future divi raises with HASI? Sounds promising."
They have said that they will raise the dividend rate to $1-$1.04 with the next declaration of 2015.
