  • Management again increased the distribution.
  • The common units are appreciating.
  • The oil price rally and rising production assure more good news ahead.
  • The percentage of available cash distributed will rise once management achieves desirable debt levels.
  • 27 active rigs on leases with ORRIs assures another growth year ahead.
  • This idea was discussed in more depth with members of my private investing community, Oil & Gas Value Research. Learn More »

Long FANG, sold RTLR with a nice profit. I keep an eye on vnom, but have a hard time convincing myself to grab the sharp end of that snake. Better to hold on to the back. LOL
What do you estimate to be the optimal payout ratio target once management is content with amount of debt repayments? Perhaps 80%?

@Chico2012 That is what I am thinking once we get to a point where they are satisfied with debt levels. This last downturn has everyone rethinking debt strategies.
