* 1 April 2017 Update: I wrote about opening KEP in Value Stock Picks – December 2016 at a price of $18.27. The closing price was $17.81 on 9 January 2017, which would be a 2.1% return. I referenced this price in the HIGMW Email Newsletter “RIG and KEP” sent on 2017-02-01. But I think the $18.27 is a more accurate price to use (for a return of -0.438%) since that is what I referenced in the article.
