Linn has incurred a very large amount of debt, and has expanded its unit holder base. Stock price appears to be rapidly going up. Ah yes! Now its time for another public stock offerring to get money to pat down debt. The price of this stock will drop like a rock because of the delution. If you buy now, you had better be prepared to be a long term stockholder (unit holder).
This company (nor any other MLP) is an appropriate investment for you, judging by the way you disparage them. You are better suited in ....come to think of it I can't think of any investment you'd like. Best just keep your money in a coffee can buried in the back yard.
