This "DOG" has to be the "WORST" run energy (Oil).
After listening to the earning report I visited my porcelain bowl (the Thrown) and Pucked.
They (management incompetent) have to be replaced asap.
I should have realized this when they did the spinoff of PSX.

will have to hold and wait for oil to come back, and it will baby!!
Kinder Morgan (KMI +6.9%) is upgraded to Outperform from Neutral with a $20 price target, raise from $18, at Credit Suisse, which calls KMI "a low-risk, long-term growth story" whose shares reflect "little meaningful downside risk" at current prices.
The firm likes KMI's plans to high-grade capital projects, use internally generated cash to fund in 2016 and beyond, deleverage over time and maintain minimal credit risk exposure; KMI also expects to generate ~$0.88/unit in growth to 2020 from announced projects in the backlog.
"Hard to see much downside from here, no matter what happens in energy markets," Credit Suisse says, citing low sensitivity to commodity price changes. "Even if average WTI were to plunge to $20/bbl and gas at $1.75/mmbtu, management expects downside of merely $120M to its budgeted dividend coverage of $3.57B."
I don't think so..

Your going to lose a lot of sleep doing it your way.
You really must be sh.....me.
With oil in the low 30's and with Iran on line, it ain't gonna happen, at least not for now, maybe another 3- 4 years down the road.
Kinder Morgan (KMI +21.1%) surges more than 20% after reporting weaker than expected Q4 earnings and revenues and cutting its capital spending budget but also detailing that its fundamental business is performing well.
Gimme Credit tells Barron's that the performance of KMI's separate divisions was "pretty good," the Q4 loss was due largely to a goodwill writedown, and the dividend cut already was priced in since the December announcement.
"Expectations had been dampened down so much that [KMI] actually beat," and investors like the company's defensive posture, says S&P Capital IQ's Stewart Glickman.
SunTrust analyst Tristan Richardson cuts his price target to $20 from $28 but keeps his Buy rating, saying KMI has enough cash flow to "self fund and de-lever” and expecting the company will continue to scale back 2016 spending plans beyond the just-announced $3.3B budget, which was down from $4.2B announced last month
I elect to hold and take it on the chin!!
This was a great company and it shall return to its splendor.
ConocoPhillips remains dedicated to preserving their dividend, taking a multi-year outlook for commodity prices. Bitumen pricing is challenging though no change in production is expected near term. ConocoPhillips’ primary lever is to lower capital expenditures, while production near-term would likely be impacted. Another lever is portfolio management through non-core asset sales from their large resource base. ConocoPhillips expects to monetize ~$1-2 billion in non-core assets but given low commodity prices, the time frame for sales could be extended. ConocoPhillips is not desperate to sell and would use their final lever, the balance sheet. We would expect ConocoPhillips to utilize their strong A-rated balance sheet to maintain their dividend.
