    Yes, but pipeline companies make money transporting mostly natural gas now....

  • too bad there are so many around...HPP, HLT, BRX up..too many trade the market and not a stock...I also own big holdings in MLP pipeline and they are getting hit today with lower oil prices which is not a big effect on their earnings...KMI for example...all buys...9:22 EST - Even though Blackstone's (BX) real estate group has been an active seller this year, that doesn't mean it thinks the property market has peaked. BX's latest big-ticket sale shows that the firm wasn't simply looking to cash out. Hudson Pacific Properties(HPP) agreed to pay $3.5B for BX's northern California office portfolio, but half that amount will be in stock, making BX a 48% stakeholder in the REIT. Blackstone engineered the deal that way because it believes the 26 office towers in the hot Silicon Valley and San Francisco markets still have upside.

    I am presenting news and facts on BX....

  • 4 BILLION valuation and acting well. dont think BX sold any on the IPO....NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Freescale Semiconductor (FSL) has been upgraded by TheStreet Ratings from Hold to Buy with a ratings score of B-. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

    "We rate FREESCALE SEMICONDUCTOR LTD (FSL) a BUY. This is driven by a number of strengths, which we believe should have a greater impact than any weaknesses, and should give investors a better performance opportunity than most stocks we cover. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its compelling growth in net income, revenue growth, good cash flow from operations, expanding profit margins and solid stock price performance. Although no company is perfect, currently we do not see any significant weaknesses which are likely to detract from the generally positive outlook."

    of course I am disappointed with the price..but will be holding as this is my biggest holding and seems so undervalued....Investor Takeaways
    It should come as no surprise to investors who have followed Blackstone's real estate strategy of "Buy It, Fix It, Sell It," that the firm is choosing to exit this investment near the top of the market.

  • In 2007, for example, just as the property market was beginning to slide, Mr Gray and his team bought Equity Office Properties, a listed Reit, in a $39bn transaction from which Blackstone has so far made more than double the money it invested. Blackstone has meanwhile made almost three times its money on its investment in Hilton Hotels, without counting the sale of the Waldorf Astoria, according to confidential material given to its investors at the November conference.

    Mr Gray is responsible for $80bn of assets under management, making Blackstone’s real estate unit the biggest part of the alternative investment company. Its latest fund, Blackstone Real Estate Partners VII, which was raised in 2011 has an internal rate of return of 27 per cent.
