What to Watch When Kinder Morgan Releases Earnings

Source: Kinder Morgan

Kinder Morgan (NYSE: KMI  ) and Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (NYSE: KMP  )  will announce second quarter results after the market closes today. The Kinder Morgan family of companies started the year off strong as first quarter results were very good. Investors are hoping that the group can repeat its performance again this quarter.

Because of its structure Kinder Morgan really relies on Kinder Morgan Energy Partners to fuel its results. Further, because the natural gas pipeline segment is its biggest profit driver it will need another strong quarter from that segment. But there are some additional catalysts to keep an eye on at Kinder Morgan Energy Partners, which could push its results past expectations. To see what those catalysts are, as well as other areas to watch this quarter, check out the slideshow presentation below.

    Would someone explain if you own KMP and want to stay in KMI should you sell KMP today and buy KMI today or let it do its thing as I understand 2 for 1 and $10.00 a share. Need help. I am talking long term 5 years. Also tax benefits for one over the other. I read the article but am confused.
