    Over the next 2 weeks shareholders should get a good idea of the staying power of the energy rally. In the face of what will probably be a chaotic FED meeting, and fallout, oil and gas inventories will most likely be drawn down heavily. If these drawdowns propel energy shares higher in the face of the FED this could be a banner 1H of the year IMHO

    By year's end this stock can get to an area around $35 - $37 but the following 3 things need to happen;
    1. Raise the dividend to $1.68 or $1.72
    2. Have better than estimated earnings in the first 2 quarters
    3. Say the target for debt ratio 2.8 - 3.0 and already be just under 4 when it is announced.

    In this current environment WMB has to match what their competitors are doing IMHO

    After today's merger announcement, is WMB a buyout target?

    A complaint I have had for years about this stock and still have today is the way it trades with oil. It hurts the stock holders over time when there is no link between this company and oil. This is an energy infrastructuture company. Why is management and investor relations not out more front and center on a PR drive to show The Street this fact and help their investors?

    Yesterday a judge ordered ET to pay WMB $410 million as a breakup fee for the failed merger a few years ago. Does anyone know if this is subject to appeal, or is it a done deal and must really be paid?

    They had some interesting insights about WMB on (http://financialdeals.tech). Definitely made me think twice about the company.

    Did anyone notice that Zacks upgraded WMB to Strong Buy? They’ve been wrong before but right a majority of the time. I love the company and would also like to see them improve their debt ratio rather than borrowing to increase the dividend. A cleaner balance sheet would also make them more desirable as a merger or buyout target.

    Curious to see how this trades today. Half a billion dollars is a game changer.

    Wonder if the 440m will be distributed to stockholders, following the court's decision to side with WMB

    There still isn't enough negative sentiment to jump in and buy any oil & gas stocks.

    Blowout earnings will send this well over 30. I will then have to make a decision.

    Powerful Methane Cloud Seen by Satellite Came From Georgia Pipe. From work on a WMB pipeline. To think this would be a headline is insane. The article stated the cloud was as much as would be created by 255 cars in a year!

    With oil hovering around the sweet spot of higher priced, but not so high we have demand destruction and Natural gas prices still at these elevated levels I dont see how earnings could be anything but spectacular for oil & gas companies. I bought more today on the volatility.

    Could be used to BUYBACK about 17 million shares!
