Uniti Group: "Very high-yielding real estate investment trust. So high-yielding that I have to throw the red flag."
Kinder Morgan: "I liked Kinder for a long time. But you know what? They did a lot of things to the balance sheet that I didn't like and the stock has really flatlined. And again, just like I said earlier about some of the drillers, you know what? The master-limited partnerships? They're awful."
