  • Breitburn Energy Gets A White Knight, But Again Slashes Distribution Rate [View article]
    That's why I think folks should run from the E&P's as fast as possible. Keep their money in the investment grade midstreams like EPD, PAA, OKS, NGLS etc. Lower yields, but much less loss of sleep.

  • Breitburn Energy Cuts Distribution Again, Why I'm Sticking With Linn Energy [View article]
    Just my opinion FWIW - LINE and LNCO will probably follow BBEP with distribution cuts.

    Tim-

    "on the fact that there will be no more distribution cuts".

    And you know this how?

    Unfortunately, BBEP was one that did suspend distributions for one year in 2009-2010.

    I think they will, specially BBEP.

    Tim-

    I am aware that a lot of those reading this article are holders of BBEP units. BBEP is one step away from eliminating the distribution completely. Unfortunately LINE, LNCO and VNR are probably not too far behind.

    George-

    Just a quick note. BBEP further cut the distribution from $1.00 to $.50 today.

    LINE, LNCO likely to follow.

    Revenues have been growing? Re-check your table from 2010 to 2014 - don't think so.

    You there??

    Would like to know the "greenlighting" criteria. Are there any?

    Perhaps you can respond to my comment by listing the "greenlighting" criteria?

    I think (know) my opinion is shared by many others.

    So anyone will now be able to write for the "premium service", regardless of how much real knowledge they have about investing? Not only that, but they will also be able to sell subscriptions.

    As it stands now, virtually anyone can get published on SA, including high school students, college kids - anyone. This has resulted in severe dilution of quality, and I am certain far fewer page views.

    The result is that there remain a few handfuls of quality authors. SA needs to weed out the ridiculous and unqualified or the site will become akin to the Yahoo Mebos.

  • Whitecap Resources Surges Forward, Buys Beaumont [View article]
    Has anyone ever read about an acquisition in the energy sector that was not determined to be "immediately accretive"?

    Hedges are not the key measure to an E&P's stability - rather their relationships with financial institutions and their ability to access capital will determine their ability to stay above water.

    No E&P dividends are safe at this point.

    Best bet here is to stay far away from any of the E&P's until oil prices get straightened out.
