EV Energy Partners LP Message Board

  • lwhilby lwhilby Nov 11, 2009 2:09 PM Flag


    I am a new investor. What are the risks for EVEP paying a 12% dividend in the future. I noticed that since 2007, the company has an excellent record of consistently increasing the quarterly dividend.

    • There are many on this board who could probably provide a better answer to your question, but I'll try. The exploration and production MLPs ability to grow and continue to pay good yields depends on many factors but the keys are: 1) that their properties continue to produce energy that can be sold at prices that produce the required return on their investment, 2) that they can acquire more properties that add to their revenues and replace any properties that are not as productive or declining, 3) that the price that they can sell their oil and gas is stable or allows them to acquire hedges at prices greater than what it costs to produce plus overhead, and 4) that they can get financing in the form of bank credit facilities, debt and equity on good terms that allows them to acquire such properties that add to their cashflow without overpaying for such properties.
