That's only a couple of days trading in the current market where all energy/oil related stocks are deemed to be worthless.

exactly , and at these levels of oil pricing that is all they are worth . perhaps less if financing and cash flow become issues .


don't forget these stocks are still selling for many multiples of current earnings . unless prices pick up in oil by a lot they are not even worth this much .

You do realize that less that 20% of KMI business is oil related with nat gas being the majority of what they transport? They do have oil storage facilities which should be a booming business currently. Earnings/cash flow has not been the issue with KMI but that they had been financing growth via the debt market. The div was cut so they could continue the growth but pay for it from cash flow. Most of their income is at rates set by FERC so that income is based on flow volume through their pipes, not market price of the commodity. I think the earnings report report next week will be a positive so time will tell.

they still took on lots of debt and can be subject to financing issues and the markets are recognizing that fact .

I am in it solely for a few trades. Bulls and bears are what make a market.

Volatility can be our friend. Don't ever touch the long term stuff.

1200 bucks a minute. I'll take it ! Total luck. Seldom happens ...

Do you have a hip holster for your IPad so you can make these trades in a flash?

Ha ha
Nope. But a few silver bullets now and then wouldn't be so bad !!!

I actually avoid using tablet or phones for trading as its "too easy" to do and can become counter productive when emotion starts to overrule discipline.
Having to fire up the PC seems to be the pause that refreshes and helps set emotions to the side for me.

Oil won't go to zero but KMI might.

Exxon/Mobil under $70 is interesting for a long term hold.

i have been using xom as a quick flip the last 4 months .

i let it roll back , go up a few points and repeat .

it has been trading up and down in a narrow range . so far so good , no losses and quite a few gains .

i was doing the same with kmi until it recently started its path just down but hey around 10 or 11 i may try again .

I've done the same with XOM since the drop to $72 last Fall. If it goes further down, I'm buying again.

I have a very small position in KMI and was thinking about swapping it for the preferred issue that is around $40. Any thoughts on that strategy?

Higher dividend and converts to KMI stock after two years from what I can recall without looking anything up.

KMI - On the road to disaster?

It will be a washout today -- doom and pessimism to talk about on the weekend network media shows, but I will be in the market re-opening some positions today.

This volatility screams opportunity. Plus Monday USA holiday MLK... Some markets closed so no one will want to be long into the weekend. Watch fireworks into the last hour today too.

Mark Haines would have had his yellow hard hat on today.

Will post trades here - first will be Long 100 KMI @15 June strike calls @0.56

It is looking like it will be a Friday morning bloodbath.

I want to wade in here somewhere but my boots only come up to my knees.

I might just sit here stunned if the market drops 600 points today.
