KMI easily took the top spot this week with 6 buys all by unique bloggers.

Here is the F.A.S.T Graph for KMI. The stock price hasn't been this low since late 2011. Last week the stock hit a multi year low of just above $25 a share and with a yield over 6%, it is easy to see why it was popular last week.

  1. Thanks for compiling all this info. Looks great and it gives a nice recap of what we've all been buying. Unfortunately I haven't been buying recently due to cash flow, not lack of opportunities. Cash flow should improve and I can hopefully get back to making regular purchases in the second half of October.

    1. Thanks so much for the comment PIP. I understand where you are coming from. We recently paid off our van so my flow is a bit lacking right now too. Its too bad because there are plenty of opportunities out there. Best of luck!


  2. Adam,
    Thanks for compiling the weekly list of buys. It's an inspiration to see everyone investing even when the market kicks you in the teeth.
    The yield and income numbers are also excellent.

    1. Hi D4s! Long time no talk. Glad I could provide it for you and everyone to study over. Ya this week was pretty motivating. As I told JC above, I don't have much cash to spend right now. Too bad. Best wishes.
