    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?

    Alex

    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.

    Let's wait and see what happens to their borrowing base and if the banks make revisions to their ability to secure favorable rates in the future. This is far, far more important than hedges.

    My guess is there will be more distribution cuts.

    Just to clarify, I am not short any stock, and have sold my positions in LINE and LNCO some time ago.

    22023171-

    You have hit the nail on the head! BBEP's borrowing base will be revised in April. This will probably necessitate a further cut (or elimination) of the distribution. LINE, LNCO and VNR face similar problems.

    The entire E&P MLP sector should be avoided like the plague at this point.

    I note that the author does not own BBEP.

  • YUMA Preferred Stock: A Safe 11.4% Yield With An Excellent Balance Sheet [View article]
    bobo-

    I see nothing in the article addressing either earnings, debt/equity or hedges. Nor is there any info on their website addressing recent earnings reports.

    YUMA's financials aren't looking too good. When is the last time they released earnings?

    According to Yahoo, YUMA's TTM earnings are -$31.68 and their debt/equity ratio is 43.31.

    No info on hedges to be found.

    They do not look very sound.

    If the company goes bankrupt the preferred will be close to worthless.
