...because I have not dipped into the propane LP
investment world before. I am a fairly new customer of SPH
since I just bought a mountain cabin in Idyllwild, CA
as a second home last summer.
I have some
interest in buying a propane LP as the yields look fairly
good. So in general to the board I have a few concerns
as a newcomer:
- the industry looks to be acting
like the REITs lately, essentially stock values
drifting lower and begetting higher yields...certainly
this season is a bust due to a mild winter, so I
question what would be a catalyst for an industry
turnaround other than perhaps: a harsh winter next year, a
big turndown in the general stock market, or a Y2K
panic later this year to spur sales (whether justified
or not)...what is your opinion on this?
seems to have a fair amount of negative buzz due to the
execs leaving...those of you who follow other propane
LPs, what are better alternatives in your opinion?
Any constructive comments
