CPLP looks a little bit more sound to me. But I like NMM even better. But here is a warning. I have got burned in shipping so many times , I recently took to buying shippers only if rated buy at UBS. That way I could at lease spread the blame around.E.G. they liked PRGN. Guess what - I got burned just the same. In fact a UBS buy rating seems to be the kiss of death. Other stocks highly commended by the analysts, on which I got burned included INT and MNGY - both strong buys at the time.
