    Linn dividend

    > I'm thinking of buying shares in LINN. But have a question about the dividend. How does LINN (and other gas/oil companies) pay out the dividend when the EPS is less then the dividend? Where is the money coming from to pay the dividend? thanks

    The EPS "loss" was due to "mark-to-market" accounting of hedging contracts.

    You need to look at cash flow from operations.
