Probably incorrect, gotta remember that MLP's have alot of depreciation which affects "earnings" in the GAAP sense but it does not affect the cash flow. Alot of "investors" often make brash and foolish statements when they see that "earnings" are much lower than the distribution, which they commonly call a dividend(MLP's have units rather than shares and distributions rather than dividends). This is usually followed by some sort of "this is going to crash" or they are insolvent or some other foolishness. Hope that helps.
Thank you ...it does help. Mucho Gracias Amigo. I sure do like the dividend this stock pays and the way it continues to grow. Maybe with gasoline so high now, more folks will be switching to propane for their needs.?? who knows.
