The fact that Brown was unarmed and 25 feet away proves it was murder. As usual you jump on tiny points and miss the much bigger ones.
You are so oblivious to the obvious that it is quite comical. If Brown was 25 feet away when shot then it is murder. That's why it's important MORON!! Are you so feeble that you can't understand that shooting an unarmed man 25 feet away is murder???? And since the incident began at the car then it must be obvious even to a cretin like you that Brown must have moved away from Wilson. Wilson then got out of his car and cold- bloodedly murdered Brown.
When the majority leader of the Senate says he favors the Kentucky plan for health care and that plan is part of Obamacare it would seem to undercut your pretentious posts.
You would like my good pal Walrat. He likes to chase dividend too. Unfortunately it hasn't worked for him so well and he is 59 years old and living in his daddy's closet.
Its best to stick with good companies that pay a decent dividend. Buy in after the distribution and ride it up to the next dividend, take the dividend and the corresponding drop in share price, and ride it up to the next dividend. Rinse and repeat several times and you will make money.
Good analysis jrad.
You're right, no one knows what the distribution will be until they announce it.
If they meet expectations of .93 I would expect a .75 distribution. Although, I am known to be greedy!
Yes, but Q3 of last year included an unplanned shutdown so the average daily volume at the refinery was 81,000 barrels. It has been running at 93,000 barrels a day since then, which is why the income and distribution should be higher this year.
You may be aware of this already, but in case you aren't, there are basically 2 factors that go into NTI's profitability - average daily volume and the 6-3-2-1 crack spread. The average daily volume should be a bit more than 90,000 barrels; anything less means there was a problem that caused the refinery to shut down or run at less than maximum capacity, and that causes the per-barrel operating expenses to go higher. The crack spread is just the value of NTI's finished products versus the cost of oil in its region. The crack spread was at historic levels in 2012, and NTI's gross margin was almost $ 40 per barrel in several quarters in 2012. It has been declining to more average levels since then. In Q2, NTI's 6-3-2-1 spread was $ 11.50 per barrel, which was the lowest it's been since Q3 of last year. I don't have access to this spread, but based on the more common Gulf Coast 3-2-1 spread reported by EIA, I think NTI's spread should have improved slightly in Q3. And any improvement will be magnified by the increased productivity (higher through put) versus Q3 of 2013. So I'm expecting this Q to break the string of lower and lower distributions. As I said before, I'm expecting 53 cents (same as Q2) but I'm hoping for 65 cents. No real basis, just hope.
I look at the message board once in a great while. Nice analysis. If you want a good message board that discusses different stock with a real people that care use sfl..Nice write up!
Thanks for the informative post. I was looking at the fact that each quarter of the year had been lower than the similar quarter the year previous.
