Dream on dood. Law of large numbers and Mr. Kinder himself indicating as little #$%$ future dividend growth at KMI. Why own KMI when you can own many other GPs offering dividend growth 2-3x higher that amount. KMP and KMR holders got screwed because they have to pay big ordinary income taxes on this transaction.
This is a joke dividend... proof that real cash for real dividends at NAT is their new reality. This management team spends more time engineering its balance sheet because it bought too many ships and overpaid for them believing the virtuous rate cycle would recover.....
That may be the only way to do the deal to avoid significant dilution. I would not own it because I want the large distribution growth potential you get from an MMP for example. KMI will offer higher growth than OKE but its such a mixed bag consolidation you may end up with a situation like WMB/ACMP/WPZ where the perception is ACMP is a loser in the transaction in the near term because ACMP's much higher dcf growth has to cover for WPZ's much lower dcf growth.
I think ETE can no longer buy the Targa complex.... clearly Wall Street knew another incredible quarter was coming and would not let ETE steal the Targa complex from its shareholders.
ETE will have to ante up a lot more. I had a feeling ETE was trying to close a deal before all of the good things in the NGLS/TRGP complex came to the forefront.
Just curious inasmuch as Obama's attorney general believes that to be the case with Obama.
This could be about buy the rumor sell the news. The capital plan was a noteworthy event triggering event-oriented investors to take profits.
It is amazing that all of you who have held KMP for five years have had such #$%$ total returns. KMP may be the granddaddy of the MLP business but the young up and comers are kicking their tails in terms of distribution growth and total returns over the past five years. Stop thinking people do not understand that KMP's best days are behind them; they are.
You are delusional... this is a #$%$ increase. TRGP increasing big double digits, WMB and ETE too.
KMI is yesterday's story. The big plays in MLP GPs no longer includes KMI.
EPD announced 2/1 split. I expect MMP to do the same. It doesn't change anything but it tells the investor MMP and EPD are real growth stories that split their shares in order to accommodate a wider pool of investors. Personally, I prefer higher stock prices keeping the type of investor out that never understands the longer term story and the moment there is one little setback you get a huge dump in share prices.
All monies made are going to be held for all the pending litigation to come. There will be so many student lawsuits and I suspect a separate class for teachers who were fired for refusing to alter academic and/or attendance records..... COCO bought Heald at top of the market.
You are brain dead if you cannot figure that a six month timeframe to sell everything results in much lower prices as the sharks swim in the water waiting for the carcass to finally die.
If true, this will be the most important lesson for you to carry with you the rest of your life. NONE of you understood what was happening behind the scenes as between the government and COCO and all for-profits for that matter.
My wife was a dedicated teacher who was fired by COCO because she refused to alter attendance and academic records so the federal money could flow beyond the date in each quarter where most of the money could be kept regardless of the ultimate student outcome.
COCO became seduced and then corrupted by the lure of "easy" federal money.
Yeah, government consent forcing asset sales.... you think the sharks are going to pay top dollar for anything other than Heald? The sale of Heald will give you jokers hope but the rest of COCO will be sold for next to nothing because the buyer will have to invest untold millions into restoration of reputation because the only game in town is federal monies. As you can clearly see, without federal monies.... COCO is nono.
Bidding war? What is the matter with you? There isn't going to be significant consolidation so much that any bidding war breaks out. These for-profits are under a microscope and the cost to turn around Everest will be enormous. Heald is the big money play because they had so much goodwill but I guarantee you COCO will lose big on that sale. They paid top of market valuation. In the end it may be hedge funds that buy these campuses and consolidate but they will not pay up and there are no significant strategic buyers AND COCO has six months so buyers are going to wait until they can get bargain basement prices.
You aint getting one dime and you may lose your remaining $0.27 if you remain this naïve.
Evidently there are still a lot of hard lessons to learn about Mreits; the most levered investment to interest rates and the interest rate cycle.
No, you should stop investing in companies that are garbage and POSs. COCO got lost. My wife was fired from COCO for refusing to pass students who failed her class. You have no idea how the seduction of federal money turned COCO from what I hope was a good educational organization to a corrupted and compromised organization. COCO is getting what they deserve. Who knows how many good teachers were fired and like my wife could not find work again because they could not get a fair hearing because COCO on your resume became a huge negative.
How many times do you quick buck artists ever see what you think you see. This is worth ZERO and they have to sell out so there will be a buyout that largely consists of monies to settle out existing business issues like paying down excessive debt. COCO paid a lot for Heald hoping to realize big things that never happened and will sell Healtd for substantial loss since they bought at market top in terms of For profit school valuations.
