The entire fine would amount to 50 cents a share from Southern Union's earnings,
said Gordon Howald, an analyst at Calyon Securities USA
who rates Southern Union shares at "buy" and doesn't own them.

"The bigger concern would be if investors lose faith in management's ability
to run these operations, because that's a situation that certainly shouldn't happen."
