Question: In Yahoo stock chart it shows the recent PE as N/A, EPS as -.61 but shows a Dividend of 5.7%. Can you provide an explanation as to the negative EPS and a positive dividend %?
Do not confuse US trust and MLP. US trust is only about the oil or gas in the hole. MLP is not only the oil or gas but also the infrastructure. The infrastructure depreciates over life. MLP can modify its asset, US trust cannot.
Suppose the dividend was not payed out of current earnings?
