In other words, what I offer are a few extra tools to add to the toolbox that you already are using.

In this era of microscopic scrutiny of insider behavior, the obvious is usually best discounted. (741-3)

Why I'm Glad I Bought Kinder Morgan

2018-01-22 seekingalpha
Last year I posted a piece in early December detailing why I decided to buy into Kinder Morgan, Inc. (NYSE:KMI) at $17.22 per share.

While its stock price did pull back a bit after its Q4 report, Kinder Morgan's update reinforced my bull sentiments towards the firm as it generated more excess cash than expected, locked in another big Permian project, and used its modest financial performance to repurchase 14 million shares.
