In This Case... The Gold

Once again confirming that if you want to know what's really going on, follow the money. In this case... the gold. Very few pay close enough attention to global markets and finance to notice what happens behind the scenes. If you do, you already realize that what is reported in the mainstream news tells a very different story than what happens in the world of money. And as far as preventing a European financial collapse, "anybody out there [who] understands fourth grade arithmetic... know[s] from metaphysical certitude that Europe is done", this according to Ann Barnhardt formerly of Barnhardt Capital Management.

"You even want to make a start at trying to bail out Europe we are talking $25 trillion just to start. And it would then--if you were going to bail out the entirety of Europe--you would now be talking about hundreds of trillions of dollars."

Beyond Kinder Morgan

Recently some of you have become familiar with the benefits of investing in Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (KMP). I thought you would appreciate a list of pipeline and storage companies similar to Kinder Morgan. The S&P Ranking, Dividend Yield, and Weiss Watchdog Rating is also listed to the right of each company. For example, Kinder Morgan Energy Partners shows as: 5 Star - 5.35 yield / B. Remember I am not an investment adviser, nor do I play one in real life. I do, however, accept "that'a boy" kickbacks in the form of $100 bills.
