    Richard Kinder, the CEO owns:

    KMI $7.6 Billion
    KMP $25 Million
    KMR $22 million

    hmmmm...if the CEO owns 300x more KMI than KMP or KMR I think I'll go with KMI

    NICE ENTRY POINT

    I think the time to buy is now, before the earnings are released. The company has already telegraphed that earnings will not disappoint, and I don't remember them doing that before. Does anyone else?
    With all the negative press from the Princeton alums, some of which seems to have been retracted (off the Barrons sell list), I think earnings on Monday will be very positive and exceed analyst projections. Certainly Richard Kinder would love to bury the bears. My sense tells me that Tuesday is going to be a good day fueled by buyers and short covering.

    can the company buy back shares now when their earnings release is on Monday? Aren't there restrictions on that?

    Nat gas price to rise 50% soon in Ukraine....

    Its more than just the Ukraine market- its all of Europe. Europe gets 30% of their NG from Russia. high probability that Russia moves on the rest of Ukraine soon.
    Natural gas has to get from the fields in the US to the ports then to Europe somehow.

  • Because it's worth more then. An investor who buys in the weeks before the dividend only has to own the stock four 9 months to get 12 months of dividend.
    A 7% annual dividend is 9.33% annualized in the first year if you only have to own the stock 9 months to get the full year.

  • Is money rotating out of the partnerships and into the general partner?

    The spread has grown to $6/ share, well above the average of the past year. Trading out of KMP and into KMR looks like a great move- they pay the same dividend.
    Any reason not to do this and boost the yield with no risk?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • I'm interested in understanding how the daily fluctuations in the price of natural gas, WTI, Brent and any other relevant commodities, as well as the general stock market and interest rates affect the daily share price fluctuations of KMR.
    Obviously the price is determined by the number of buyers and sellers. but what outside factors contribute to buyers and sellers interest? I'm not talking about indexes like AMLP.
    Is KMR boosted when WTI is up because they are a producer? Is it boosted when WTI is down because it increases demand for their distribution side? Which factor is more dominant? The same questions for natural gas and other KMR products.
    Clearly rising interest rates hurt as does a falling stock market (in a muted way).
    Why do KMR and KMP often trade in the opposite direction of KMI?
    Any insights?

  • Fracking Chemicals Didn't Taint Water in Pa.
    July 19, 2013

    A landmark federal study on hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, shows no evidence that chemicals from the natural gas drilling process moved up to contaminate drinking water aquifers at a western Pennsylvania drilling site, the Department of Energy told The Associated Press.

    After a year of monitoring, the researchers found that the chemical-laced fluids used to free gas trapped deep below the surface stayed thousands of feet below the shallower areas that supply drinking water, geologist Richard Hammack said.

    Although the results are preliminary — the study is still ongoing — they are a boost to a natural gas industry that has fought complaints from environmental groups and property owners who call fracking dangerous.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Wrangling between natural gas drilling and political fright-mongers is looming with the Oct. 17 announcement that pipeline giant Kinder Morgan will become the largest gas pipeline operator in the U.S. This means accelerated gas drilling using hydraulic fracturing, a technology developed by the company Halliburton.

    The $21 billion deal for Kinder Morgan to buy El Paso Corp. will create a new network of 67,000 miles of lines to serve the rapidly-growing technological drilling advance of hydraulic fracturing, informally called “fracking.” A potential 200-year supply of needed natural gas is at stake.

    The Kayne Anderson MLP Investment Company (KYN) announced a 5 million share secondary today and the stock is down 7% in after hours.
    I understand that KYN assets are comprised of other MLP shares?
    How does this secondary effect KMP and the other MLPs KYN owns?

    With the understanding that KMP is to KMR exactly the same as EEP is to EEQ, why does KMP trade at a premium while EEP does not, or conversely, why does KMR trade at a discount while EEQ does not?
    EEP/ EEQ trade at about the same price and at times in the past year EEP has been higher than EEP and at other times EEQ has had a higher price than EEP. I conclude that over a long period the average share price is nearly identical. Over the same time KMP has always traded at a premium over KMR- as little as 2% lately ( a historical low premium) and as much as 10% or more at other times.
    Skipping the debate on why KMP trades at a premium, why does KMP trade at a premium while EEP does not?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
