Energy trusts (SDT, PER, SDR) all take hits after announcing dividend and production cuts last night (I, II, III), and Raymond James does not pass "Go," downgrading the group to Sell from Buy. These new trusts are misunderstood, says one trader long the names. The wells are still getting drilled and there's going to be volatility in production volumes. They're cheap by any metric and - unlike MLPs - they're debt-free, having no need to issue debt (or shares) to replace depleting assets.
