Not looking to good at this time .I guess everybody will be on KMI when it opens .
I had KMP and now it's KMI after the Merger Transactions . KMI projects a dividend of $2.00 per share for 2015, a 16 percent increase over the 2014 KMI dividend budget of $1.72 per share. The company expects to grow the dividend by approximately 10 percent each year from 2015 through 2020 . Both KMP and KMI had a great dividend history .
So I'm very happy too. However, always stay well diversified .Look at stocks like MIC , DUK , ARLP , AROW ,FUN . NS,T , VZ ,SPH and GE .Oh, I think IEP is looking good too . But it's down right now . Check out all of their dividend histories . Always do your own homework . I just buy them and hold them . I'm sure you'll find something you like in there .
Well best of luck to you
North Carolina environmental officials said Tuesday that they are fining Duke Energy $25 million over pollution that has been seeping into groundwater for years from a pair of coal ash pits at a retired power plant.
The state Department of Environment and Natural Resources called it the state's largest penalty for environmental damages. It issued the fine over ongoing contamination at the L.V. Sutton Electric Plant outside Wilmington. The site includes a pair of unlined dumps estimated to hold 2.6 million tons of ash.
The state touted the fine as an important development to hold Duke accountable for years of pollution.
"Today's enforcement action continues the aggressive approach this administration has taken on coal ash," said Donald R. van der Vaart, the department's secretary.
But environmental groups said the fine doesn't force Duke to clean up the pollution — something they've been trying to get the $50 billion Charlotte-based company to do for years. Without that, groundwater near Flemington, a largely working-class community, will remain contaminated, said Kemp Burdette, executive director of the nonprofit Cape Fear River Watch.
"A $25 million fine doesn't do anything to clean up the contamination caused by Duke's coal ash ponds," Burdette said.
"They're not forcing Duke to start treating groundwater, or start doing something to clean up the contamination. What they need to be doing is forcing them to clean it up. If they want to fine them, fine. The important thing here is getting the groundwater cleaned up," he said.
Charlotte-based Duke Energy has 30 days to appeal the fine.............................................

Nothing is guaranteed in the stock market . But in my opinion I like to look at the earnings per share . Are they estimated to go up or down ? I also like to look at the dividend history . Are the dividends holding steady or going up ? Going down is not a good sign .
I have BP and it's estimated earnings per share are going down. But I'm holding on to my BP.I bought it just after the oil spill . I think IEP is looking good . Also , look at stocks like SO or DUK , ARLP , AROW ,FUN . KMI,T or VZ . Also stay diversified , never put all your eggs in one basket .
Well best of luck to you .
