BreitBurn Energy (BBEP -4.7%) is off its worst lows after CEO Halbert Washburn discloses buying 30K shares on July 3 at an average $14.92, worth ~$447K. Shares have dropped 20% since Linn Energy's SEC inquiry news, which prompted Hedgeye to dub BBEP "Linn Energy junior." Other upstream MLPs also are lower: VNR -5.6%, QRE -6.5%, LRE -7%.

    Why hasn't Washburn defended BBEP since the hack job that Hedgeye performed last week? After all, he's supposed to have the stockholder's interest in mind.


    Letting this kind of written comment go un-defended is irresponsible for a CEO.

    I am a buyer now - all news positive until shorts published negative comments to drive stock down. Expect increase in div as usual due to recent acquisitions and increased cash flows. Should go X first week in Aug.
