  • Energy trusts suffer another shellacking after RBC Capital issues downgrades and target price reductions for SandRidge Permian Trust (PER -6.6%), due to reduced production visibility and increased risk profiles following below-expected Q4 distributions, and SandRidge Mississippian Trust I (SDT -5.5%) and II (SDR -1.6%), as increasing risk meets additional production concerns. [View news story]
    Looks to me like a pattern. All SD trusts have been downgraded. I do not think anyone sane will buy another SD trust. Just another source of funds that will be cut off from Tom Ward. SELL.
