SandRidge Permian Trust: Risk Outweighs Potential Reward Of Higher Oil Prices

After reaching an all-time low of $2.01 in mid-January 2016, SandRidge Permian Trust (NYSE:PER) shares rallied over 35% to close at $2.72 on 1/29/2016. The rally was supported by a distribution announcement of $0.19 per unit after hours on 1/28/2016.

These factors, as well as risks associated with the virtual certain bankruptcy of SandRidge Energy (OTCPK:SDOC), the Trust well operating partner, make assessing the current fair value of the Trust shares a challenge.
