This trust pays half equity and half return after 4 dividends it should be selling at $18.00 + so at 16.50 it is a bargain. Although the real dividend this time is only 8% per year...do your home work!
The present unit price is related to post XD sentiment about the last lowered distribution which was derived from an oil price of ca $78/bbl for the relevant quarter. The current quarter is showing ca $97/bbl. Go figure.
There are 2 ways to invest: 1. You buy the distribution and ride the distribution as long as it makes sense. 2. You buy the distribution but maximize your profit by buying and selling on the market volatility. You know that after xdate the unit will go down, so if you want to maximize you profit sale! Selling is a risk that you must assume. Losing is not the same then not making a profit. I can be on the side line but I am not losing, I just wait for the right time. That is also a risk, but I can manage that one.
