In this video, Motley Fool energy analyst Joel South gives us one stock he really loves, Kinder Morgan (NYSE: KMI). He likes the stability of the company's fee-based assets, including its regulated pipelines that guarantee a fixed rate of return. He also likes the company for how large its asset footprint is, with a huge number of pipelines connecting to every major energy region in North America, as well as a large amount of production; Kinder Morgan is the second largest oil producer in Texas. Finally, he likes the company's stewardship; the large amount of internal ownership of the company is a great sign, and he values management's philosophy that investor money belongs to investors, not to KMI management.
