  2. I just posted a similar message on another blog i recently found through which i found your blog......

    I just found your blog while searching for more info on KMP, this is a stock I've been looking at purchasing for a while I like their future prospectus. I wanted someone elses opinion on whether you believe this is a lifetime holding. As in do you think they will continue to raise dividends or hold steady on the huge distribution because most of the anlysis' i read say its just a stock to hold for the next few years then its time to cash it in but none explain why. I've held JNJ since '78 and its made me a fortune and im looking for another gold mine to leave my children. Thanks again and i just read your dividend analysis and its staggering that 10 years later you'd get a 40% yield

  4. Passive Family Income and Dorian Wales,

    Thanks for stopping by.

    Anonymous,

    I am not a financial adviser. That being said I hold KMP as part of a diversified portfolio where I try to have at least 30 dividend paying companies. My goal is to have 100 of these dividend companies, but will settle for 50. Noone can really say that KMP is the stock of the future. My analysis of the dividend aristocrats revealed that on average, stocks stay about 6.5 years in the index. I don't know how long dividend achievers stay in the achievers index (KMP is an achiever) but since there are about 300+ achievers but only 120 or so aristocrats and chanpions I would say that the stay is not longer than 15+6 =21 years on average.

  5. thanks for your KMP input, Im just worried about richard kinder....I mean i love that he makes $1 per year and gets no stock options so his $2B net worth is basically from the stock so its in his best interest to keep it up but on the other hand he's a man who worked for enron and it worries me that he may one day just pull a big sell what do you think about that? sorry to bother you i just figured you knew alot more than me since you were a holder and had a deep analysis...by the way i bought in mid 50's today looking to add more before next div
