A 10% div carries a risk anywhere. Tempting ? yes. General market risk from the impending Fed raise has dampened the REITs and I believe debt levels differentiates as we await the FED. Low debt Reits will see less volatility when the news hits. I hold some NNN but GOV has some inherent management risks beyond market risk that prohibits me from investing there. Good luck.
Translation: 'The Portnoys have a target on your back' and they are scheming to separate you from your $.
Mutual Funds? They settle at the close of day price. Not sure when individual stock price is captured for dividend but believe it to be an end of day price since it goes EX-Dividend at the next day's open. The share price is then reduced by the div amount and that $ is put aside for payment at a later date. The stock begins trading at the lower price or ex-dividend. 'Ex' meaning without.
No IDRs paid to the General Partner (KMI) from KMP.
The tax bill came due at the switchover for KMP.
Wasn't there a settlemnt of the KMP holders lawsuit?
Today's market is it's own story, separate from KMP.
I held KMR and it's getting closer to my basis but I'm still ahead and can't take a Cap Loss and have decided to stick it out.
I came by GOV on recommendations to sniff around attracted by the yield. First off I see the Portnoys are involved. I don't care if the div is 25%, they are bad news. I am looking elsewhere, I suggest y'all do as well.
Check out FVE, SNH, and a few others of theirs. Looks like Ponzie to me. Bye, Bye.
The toll road model while not correlative has always traded up or down with oil/energy, although not in exact parity. Been that way forever. KMI is part of many funds and indexes and often gets thrown out with the bathwater. Other factors like Shorts, concerns over dividend sustainability, China, Greece, elections, weigh on the price as well. As these issues resolve themselves we'll see some improvement but oil will be a headwind for a while.
These just threw dividends and will be fallow shortly by the lull between divs.
The B is currently around $93 with a discount of $7. At around $90, the div yield is 5%.
Not a bad way to go with the Common shares being so volatile and dismal.
Worth a look. GLTA
While the Fed has printed $ and taken on massive debt, there is a reason and purpose.
Case in point, I just bought cabinets at Home Depot and used their promotion to pay off the charge in 24 months at 0% interest. Same thing happens with auto purchases and many other things. The Fed rate that keeps interest rates down filters thru the economy rapidly. Mortgages are low, etc, etc. This keeps the wheels of industry turning, helping employment and generating cash up and down the chain. Now that the patient (economy) is recovering rates will go up at a slow pace and the economy with gaining strength will be more healthy, and resilient. There are benefits from low Fed rates.
In time the deferral of the massive debt will unwind and be absorbed into the economy, hopefully without major hurdles. Although some fits and starts are inevitable.
It may not be perfect but this is how it is for now. I see a long slow grind upward for the economy. The stock market is quite another story because it is more fickle than we would like. Capitalism was on the brink of collapse, think of a person flat-lining. Things are much better now than then.
Aw Shucks, pantyloon, I was hopin' to make serious $ on COP. R U sure?
The man that sold it to me promised it would grow like a beanstalk.
I read somewhere that the contracts are for space and if they ship product fine, if they don't they still pay.
Especially when they build a new line, the space is all allocated a long time out by commitment$. A force majure would be the only exemption from that.
She popped back up to healthy levels since then but now whew!
COP is married to the dividend so that makes me the brother-in-law. I'm staying.
Discussions often drift to oil and liquids however, the other business segments Liquids, CO2, Terminals and Canada make up less than 50% combined of the total revenues. This is a predominantly NatGas transporter. And that is a domestic commodity, whose price has been suppressed by over supply. A good graphic can be seen on 'Here's what to expect when Kinder Morgan reports earnings this week' by Matt DiLallo, Motley Fool. It shows the % of each segment.
My Homie, U disrespect with such ease. What's the matter, don't U respect yourself? Work on that, assemble some dignity, build some self-esteem. You'll be a better person, you'll be able to hold a relationship and U won't need to troll these message boards, especially on a loser stock like CC. Focus on your holdings and your actions. Embrace the light.
I guess we all can't be as smart as you or as big a jurkuff.
Nice bump today 11%.
