Letter from the Executive President Dear members, neighbors, and friends: We are pleased to announce a new dimension of vivid aerial photography featured on our front cover of this edition of Southpointe Magazine. Our thanks go out to Dale Risker our commercial pilot and chamber president for his contribution of flights over Southpointe and Racetrack Road. As a private pilot I can appreciate, first hand, the skill required to setup for photography using the best altitude, lighting angle and positioning for quality pictures. These photographs truly capture the essence of Southpointe II, especially with the Mylan Lab building, Southpointe Town Center and new Holiday Inn Express at the forefront of the photograph. Our special thanks to Mike Redford of Redford Photography for final details and color enhancement/ corrections of this award winning quality front cover. Very soon the ground breaking will kick off the ‘Town Center Apartments’ on Main Street, Southpointe. The apartments will be located in the vacant center lot of the photo. In the months to come, you will see and hear Dale or me flying over to capture each of the seasons. We are excited to announce the new “App” available on Android (and soon I-phone) smart phones. This app is free by just entering ‘Southpointe’ in your application store. Get listings of businesses, reservations for events, announcements and contests, all online from your phone! We are the first chamber to make this bold step forward in technology in Pennsylvania. Enjoy this fall edition and departure from standard photography formats.

Business Updates Coming Soon | Two new Southpointe communities New series of luxury homes introduced by Heartland Homes This past May signaled a brand new era in luxury housing in Pittsburgh and Southwestern Pennsylvania. That is when Heartland Homes unveiled its new series of high end luxury homes. Heartland Homes has always focused on luxury and quality but these new home designs have taken it to a whole new level. Of course, there are higher-end finishings included with every home. However, the layouts of the homes themselves are incredibly unique. You won’t find anything like them in this area. Heartland Homes made the decision to offer the new home designs based on its successful 29 years in business as the region’s best custom home builder and also on vital feedback from previous Heartland customers. The company listened to its new and repeat customers who said they wanted more high-end amenities as included items. The new designs are being built in Allegheny, Butler and Washington Counties. Two new communities are scheduled to open this year in Southpointe. The new series of homes include open floor plans because parents want to be connected to children doing their homework or watching television. Other features include modern kitchen layouts and spacious master retreats. Heartland includes a gourmet kitchen island as standard in every one of these homes. Other highlights include: granite kitchen and master bathroom countertops, built-in GE stainless steel appliances, maple cabinets, 9-foot ceilings on all floors and a high-end trim package. Also, hardwood flooring is featured in
the kitchen, foyer, powder room and first floor hall. Ceramic tile floors are found in the master bathrooms in every home of the new series. In addition to the luxury home series, Heartland Homes is offering additional new floor plans, new ways of improving its customers’ experiences and new communities. The Overlook at Southpointe is one of Pittsburgh’s most highly anticipated communities. It will be located off Angerer Road in Southpointe and will have beautiful forest area views with lit sidewalks in the community. Homes will start in the $400’s. Ironwood II is another highly regarded community coming soon to Southpointe. It will be located off Ironwood Drive and will feature 35 gorgeous home sites.

CBRE hires away R.T. Walker CBRE is looking to do more to tap into the commercial real estate potential of the oil and gas companies coming to the region. And they’ve tapped one of the bestknown local commercial real estate agents in the field locally to help do it. The firm has hired R.T. Walker, the local commercial real estate agent that was among the first to develop a niche of serving the oil and gas companies coming to the region for the Marcellus Shale with downtown Pittsburgh-based Beynon & Co. As the former president of the oil and gas group at Beynon, Walker joins CBRE as a vice president charged with starting up a new oil and gas services division for the firm. Walker said he expects to begin working with larger companies and extend his reach beyond the region. “I’m going to be working in the energy industry more on the national side as opposed to the local service companies,” he said. “Some of the clients who have moved into the Marcellus Shale and Utica Shale want to expand throughout the United States.” Walker said he enjoyed his time at Beynon & Co. and said
he appreciated the opportunity to build an oil and gas practice there, but was eager to move on to a company with a national reach and international platform. He said CBRE is also ramping up similar practice groups at its offices in Denver and Calgary. CBRE has an established practice group for energy in Houston. Walker, 46, jumped into learning about the oil and gas business after first leasing some warehouse space to an oil and gas firm a few years ago and worked his way into representing hundreds of service firms entering the market for the Marcellus and Utica Shales, winning an Energy Leadership award from the Pittsburgh Business Times in the process.

Energy rigs in U.S. cap longest streak of gains in two years Posted on August 2, 2013 at 1:44 pm by Bloomberg in Crude oil, Natural gas
Rigs targeting oil and natural gas in the U.S. gained for the fifth straight week to the highest level this year as producers boosted natural-gas plays in the Marcellus Shale formation on the East Coast. Total rigs gained six to 1,782, the most since Dec. 14, according to data posted on Baker Hughes Inc.’s website. The count is in the longest streak of weekly advances since July 2011. Gas rigs surged by 19 to 388, a four-month high, the Houston-based field services company said on its website. Oil rigs declined by 13 to 1,388. West Virginia added 11 rigs this week to 38, the most since at least May 2010. Rigs are rising with domestic crude output reaching the highest since 1990 and U.S. oil reserves the most in two decades as producers use hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling to reach shale deposits. The resurgence in energy production helped the U.S. meet 87 percent of its energy needs in the first four months of 2013, on pace to be the highest annual rate since 1985. “Most of this week’s increase was in the Marcellus Shale in West Virginia, and that’s not surprising,” James Williams, president of energy consulting firm WTRG Economics in London, Arkansas, said by telephone. “You can make money at this price in the Marcellus”. The Marcellus stretches across areas of New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland, West Virginia and Virginia. Barclays described the Marcellus play in a July 24 research note as “hotter than ever” as a pipeline and new processing plants allow more wet-gas volumes to leave the area. Gas production from the southwest Marcellus and Utica regions could rise by 3.5 billion cubic feet a day by the end of 2014, Biliana Pehlivanova, a Barclays analyst in New York, said in the note. Proven natural gas reserves in the U.S. rose by almost 10 per-
cent in 2011 to a record 348.8 trillion cubic feet, the Energy Information Administration, the Energy Department’s statistical arm, said yesterday. Oil reserves in the U.S. increased for the third straight year in 2011, rising by 15 percent to 29 billion barrels, the most since 1985. “Higher oil prices helped drive record increases in crude oil reserves,” Adam Sieminski, EIA’s administrator, said in a statement yesterday. “Natural gas reserves grew strongly despite slightly lower natural gas prices in 2011.” Natural gas for September delivery fell 4 cents to settle at $3.347 per million British thermal units on the New York Mercantile Exchange, up 15 percent from a year ago. U.S. gas stockpiles gained 59 billion cubic feet last week to 2.845 trillion, bigger than the five-year seasonal average increase of 47 billion, the EIA said yesterday. Supplies were 11.5 percent below year-earlier levels. “A declining gas production rate coupled with a $4 per mcf gas price may boost demand for drilling rigs,” Mehdi Menouar, a Bloomberg Industries energy analyst in Princeton, New Jersey, said July 31. U.S. oil output slipped 13,000 barrels a day to 7.54 million after rising to the highest level a since December 1990 a week earlier. Stockpiles gained for the first time in five weeks, adding 431,000 barrels to 364.6 million. Crude for September delivery dropped 95 cents, or 0.9 percent, to $106.94 a barrel today on the Nymex, up 23 percent in the past year. ConocoPhillips produced 491,000 barrels a day of oil equivalent in the second quarter in the continental U.S., up 50,000 from a year earlier, “and our high level of drilling activity continues, Jeff W. Sheets, the Houston-based company’s chief financial officer, said in a conference call with investors yesterday.

ing, is being done safely and is essentially similar to the hundreds of thousands of oil and gas wells that have been drilled all over the nation. The drilling boom has reduced oil and gas imports and generated billions of dollars for companies and landowners. Many scientists and environmental groups also agree with Obama’s main point: that while there are some negative effects from natural gas, burning coal is far worse for the environment and public health. There’s no dispute that natural gas burns far cleaner than coal, but its main component, methane, is a potent heat-trapping gas. Some environmental groups advocate a total rejection of all fossil fuels and an all-out effort to switch to renewables such as wind turbines and solar panels. They also say people living close to drilling operations have suffered from too much pollution. “When it comes to natural gas, the president is taking the wrong path,” Deb Nardone, the head of the Sierra Club’s Beyond Natural Gas program, wrote in a blog post.

Continued from Pg. 18 Robert Howarth, a Cornell University professor who argues that methane leaks from drilling negate other climate benefits of gas, said in an email to The Associated Press that he is “extremely disappointed in the President’s position” and said the support for natural gas “is very likely to do more to aggravate global change than to help solve it.” Not so, Obama said. Advances in drilling, the president said, have “helped drive our carbon pollution to its lowest levels in nearly 20 years,” and, “we’ll keep working with the industry to make drilling safer and cleaner, to make sure that we’re not seeing methane emissions.” “These critics seem to think that when we ask our businesses to innovate and reduce pollution and lead, they can’t or they won’t do it,” Obama added, mentioning that taking lead out of gasoline and the phase-out of ozone-depleting gases were examples of the industry making needed changes. The Sierra Club and some activists argue that fracking comes with unacceptable levels of air and water pollution and that “no state has adequate protections in place.” Obama disagreed. “The old rules may say we can’t protect our environment and promote economic growth at the same time,” Obama said. “Don’t tell folks that we have to choose between the health of our children or the health of our economy.” Critics have also claimed that the fracking boom just makes a few energy companies rich, and that average Ameri-
cans get few benefits. But Obama responded, “The bottom line is natural gas is creating jobs. It’s lowering many families’ heat and power bills.” Some environmental groups agree with Obama’s position that switching from coal-fired power to natural gas has helped reduce emissions and protect the environment. The Breakthrough Institute, an Oakland, Calif., think tank, said in a report released Wednesday that despite problems and legitimate concerns over fracking, the gas industry has “a far smaller impact on mortality and disease, landscapes, waterways, air pollution, and local communities than coal mining and coal burning.” “Natural gas is a net environmental benefit at local, regional, national, and global levels,” the Breakthrough report said. One Pennsylvania Democrat jumped to endorse Obama’s plan. Gas from the Marcellus Shale formation there has led to a huge surge in drilling and production over the last five years. Sen. Bob Casey said he plans to introduce legislation to place more natural gas fueling stations along Interstate highways. Casey said the plan could “help reduce emissions and create jobs.” But some other Democrats were silent. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is trying to decide whether to allow fracking to begin in a small part of his state and is facing heavy opposition from some groups. Cuomo had no immediate comment Thursday about the speech but said his decision will be based on New York state’s own health report and data from Pennsylvania’s experience. Continued on Pg. 21

MarkWest has a new office and some new land The team at MarkWest Energy Partners’ Canonsburg offices are settling into new digs that will see about 70 employees that were scattered across two offices now under one roof. The midstream company is moving this week into 30,000 square feet at 4600 J. Barry Court within the Southpointe development in Malia Spencer Reporter- Pittsburgh Washington County. Business Times The move was necessitated by the firm’s growth, said Rob McHale, manager of government and environmental affairs. The company had outgrown its other office in Southpointe and its office on Morganza Road. The team that moved works in the company’s Liberty segment and works with the Marcellus processing facility in Houston, Pa., as well as three in West Virgina. According to MarkWest’s latest presentation to investors, the company’s Liberty segment is expected to account for 44 percent of the firm’s operating income in 2013, surpassing the firm’s Southwest unit, which includes Texas and Oklahoma.
In other MarkWest growth news, the company has completed a $1.8 million real estate transaction for property in Jackson Township as part of its expansion for its Bluestone Processing Facility. The facility processes natural gas and separates methane for transmission pipelines and pulls ethane to be used by the plant’s engines, McHale said. The propane and heavier liquids are trucked out of the facility to be processed in other places, he said. Bluestone I opened last year, and this Bluestone II project is expected to be online in the second quarter of 2014 with 120 million cubic feet per day of added capacity. In addition to the construction jobs created by this project, McHale said the company will be looking to add 10 full-time equivalents, likely operators and mechanics. MarkWest gained this facility last year in its $512 million deal to acquire Keystone Midstream Services. At the time, MarkWest said it planned to invest $500 million into the system over the next five years. A third expansion of Bluestone, for another 200 million cubic feet per day, is planned, according to MarkWest investor presentations, but a date has not been set.

Wealth Management for Affluent Family Groups Dividends Matter
Why are dividends important? Over the past 100 years, dividends have contributed nearly half of the total return from U.S. Equity Markets. Dividend paying stocks are likely to continue to gain favor as aging Americans seek income.
Source: FactSet, S&P, Robert Shiller, UBS CIO WMR
The low interest rates of the past few years have significantly increased investor demand for income within the equity market via dividend-paying stocks. However, stock valuations with the highest dividend yield remain elevated and vulnerable in a rising interest rate environment. Stocks with more moderate current dividend yields, but historically high and consistent dividend growth, are much more attractively valued and less sensitive to rising interest rates. We believe the current rising interest rate environment, due to stronger U.S. economic growth, will be a positive for the health of corporate profits which in turn should increase the value of dividend growth stocks. Stocks with strong dividends, are attractive to investors when interest rates are low. It should come as little surprise that dividend-based Investments have become enormously popular (1). We caution that not all dividend paying stocks have the same characteristics. While 80% of S&P 500 companies pay some form of recurring dividend, the level of the dividend payout relative to the companyâ€™s share price and growth rate of the dividend differ across industry and sector and companies.(2) Stocks with the highest current dividend yield are trading at high relative valuations compared with history. At a sector level, this becomes quite clear when looking at the current relative sector P/ E (price-to-earnings ratio) of the two highest yielding sectors of the market, Telecom and Utilities.
Telecom, for instance, has the highest dividend yield at 4.5% and is currently trading at a 20% P/E premium to the S&P 500 compared to its long-run average 5% premium. (3) We still find compelling value in businesses with healthy earnings and the ability to consistently grow dividends. As interest rates rose in the 2nd Quarter, the overvalued sectors of the market that offer high current dividends but low dividend growth prospects were exposed as "bond proxies" and suffered along with bonds. However, companies that consistently increase their dividends over time, which have historically traded at a premium to the overall market, are currently trading at a modest discount. These high dividend growers are more attractive now than they have been in 20 years when compared to the overvalued high dividend yielders

Investing in dividend paying stocks involves risks. Companies cannot assure or guarantee a certain rate of return or dividend yield; they can increase, decrease or totally eliminate their dividends without notice. A fund's investment return and principal value will fluctuate with market conditions, and it is possible to lose money. Standard & Poor’s 500 Index—(S&P 500)—Covers 500 industrial, utility, transportation and financial companies of the U.S. markets (mostly NYSE issues). It is a capitalization-weighted index calculated on a total return basis with dividends reinvested. Investors cannot invest directly into an index.
Energy Secretary: Fracking is safe BY SEAN HIGGINS AUGUST 2, 2013 AT 9:45 PM
Dr. Ernest Moniz waves to the audience before the start of a ceremony where he was sworn in as Energy Secretary. Ernest Moniz told reporters Thursday morning that the process of natural gas extraction called fracking was safe and should be used, provided it was properly regulated. “I still have not seen any evidence of fracking per se contaminating groundwater,” he said at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. Moniz’s comments represented a blunt rebuke to many in the environmental community, which has increasingly turned against fracking. President Obama has generally rejected those concerns and regularly touted natural gas as a “bridge to a low carbon future,” a phrase Moniz used again Thursday. Natural gas releases a third to half as many carbon emissions than other fossil fuels.
Fracking is a process by which a solution of water, sand and chemicals is horizontally injected into shale rock formations deep underground and generally thousands of feet below the water table, although it was first used in the 1960s in Oklahoma and Texas. Innovations in the 1990s have since created a boom in the industry, allowing the U.S. to become a net energy exporter for the first time in decades. Environmental activists argue that it pollutes groundwater. The Environmental Protection Agency has no found evidence despite three high-profile investigations. Most recently, it pulled out of an investigation in Pavillion, Wyoming. Moniz said there had been a few cases where methane had seeped into groundwater due to faulty well design, but he added that that and other concerns related to fracking are “manageable.” “Manageable means it still has to be managed,” he said, and that means the proper regulations. The administration is still working on those. Asked if the abundance of natural gas was retarding investment in renewable energy resources, Moniz said the opposite was true. It was helping the US meet lower emissions targets, giving renewable technology a chance to catch up. Reprint from Washington Examiner
