    There is something inheritingly unfair about this.
    The stock price goes down because the PO is always priced below the market and has large underwriting costs associated with it.
    Every existing stock holder and long call option holder gets screwed.
    Check out the price action on CLMT which announced a PO yesterday and is down over $2 today.
    Happy I wasn't in that one.

    bu1956, you are wrong. I'm happy to be in CLMT since my avg. pps was 21.475 with a YOC of 11.55%. Sure, if you bought recently you'd be kicking yourself for not waiting, or you could buy more and average down.

    I think all unit holders knew that capital was needed to complete the capital projects. Given the drastic rise lately I assume they decided to strike while the getting is good.


    It all comes down to execution for the projects - if they are successful then in 2015 its a $20-$25 value - if not then we'll be stringing along $13.

    I'm rather upset about this! I read not too long ago on here that someone was saying based on COH, new expenditures, etc they may have to do a PO.


    I have been long XTEX for over 4yrs now... I purchased on 10/30/2008 @ 15.05 a share and have reinvested all distributions. My cost basis per share is 13.29 and @ today's close I am up 18.57%.


    As mad as I am, I will stay in XTEX for at least 2 more years to try and reap the cash that should be kicking in later this year and through 2014 with these 2 new expansions coming online.

    Why are you upset? How did you think we'd complete these capital projects? All unitholders had to know that this would happen as management has said they would use equity as part of the funding mechanism.


    If management does a good job on execution and we see good DCF growth once the projects are done then I"m happy. It won't be until 2014 that we start to see the benefits and maybe even 2015 until we see larger boosts in distributions.
