I agree I do not think Rich Kinder would throw money at something he did not think would be beneficial for the Company. I also do not think he would overpay he has been around this business a long time and he has a lot tied up in the Company in shares that he would like to see grow.
There is a possibility the shorts could get squeezed tomorrow if earnings are good. There seems a pretty heavy short position. It would not break my heart to see the short trying to cover there positions. That's a gamble they take. I am a long on KMI unless something really changes with there guidance down the road.
I agree I think high fuel costs world hurt Kinder more than lower prices. If prices are lower u do not hear about conservation as much. We all know prices will bottom and eventually head higher. I think KMI is well positioned and he consolidate at the right time. They say timing is everything.
I think with the consIolidation complete the timing of things may be well set to buy Companies at a cheaper price than they originally would have paid. Things may work out much better in the long run than originally thought. I am long and hopeful and very positive with this great Company.
My thinking is KMI will trade in a narrow range prior to earnings in about 3 weeks. If all is going as Mr. Kinder plans I think stock will move higher based on mutual fund managers looking to buy for there portfolio`s. This being the first report post consolidation it will be looked at closely by the fund managers. Myself being in for the long haul so I have no intention to sell. We could see a new yearly high today we are getting close.
Great Company solid management they know exactly what they are doing mu opinion. I am long will see some ups and downs but I bought earlier this year and will continue to hold and reinvest the dividends. The consolidation could not be timed better seems Mr. Kinder had vision,
Moving in the right direction. Would be a nice Christmas present to see new highs by years end.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Reading some of the posts I do not think people take into consideration the size of the consolidation into one company. This was 4 large companies prior now its one enormous company. I see some post trying to compare KMI with much smaller company's which is silly.
Nice article I liked what it said seemed very positive especially longer term. Was watching Cavuto and gent on there said we need more pipelines in this country to move the products around safely. I like that idea. We can really stick it to our enemies if we are totally free from outside oil. GO DOMESTIC!!!!
I am getting tempted to buy at these levels. May be the last buying opportunity but who knows. I think long term this will be a good investment.
Could lower prices of Companies on Mr. Kinder`s buy list be even a better buying opportunity? He may be able to acquire other Companies at fire sale prices as stock prices drop because of lower crude prices. This may all play out well for KMI in the long term? Just my thoughts.
I on board your train of thought. I would be very happy with that return and if that happens it will put me in a great financial position. You may be conservative on that upside with the future always uncertain but again its a great steady income/return.
It will be interesting were Mr. Kinder takes the Company. The consolidation is all but done, I believe very strongly in his leadership he will have a monster of a company next to the competition. It should be exciting and above all very rewarding "I hope". I believe he will be focusing on Natural Gas pipeline Company's when he looks to buy?
I think it is because of the weekend. May have credited account late Friday at close of business. May be officially in Monday not realty a big deal in my opinion because u cannot do anything with it on the weekend anyway. I wish I was special. LOL!!!!!
