EV Energy Partners' Shares Fall 1% in First Day of Trading

Summary: EV Energy, a limited partnership with facilities in Ohio, West Virginia and Louisiana whose goal is to develop oil and gas properties had a disappointing first day of trade yesterday. Following an IPO where 3.9 million partnership units were sold at $20 per unit--the middle of the expected range-- EVEP closed down at $19.79 yesterday. As a limited partnership, EVEP does not offer the same rights as corporations, and suffers from the risk of potentially having to reduce dividends, the main source of cash flow to investors.
