FORT WORTH, TX--(Marketwire - 01/18/10) - Quicksilver Gas Services LP (NYSE:KGS - News) announced today that the board of directors of its general partner has declared a cash distribution of $.39 per common unit for the 2009 fourth quarter. This distribution will be paid February 12, 2010 on all common units to holders of record as of the close of business on February 2, 2010.
You're comparing apples to oranges. sjt is a trust; kgs is a limited partnership. Distributions are taxed differently; that is just one part of the differences. Not only should an investor know the difference in structure of the two and all its implications, but he/she should also know the difference in the nature of the business.
All you're saying is here are two entities having something to do with natural gas and one is, for the moment, paying a higher distribution!
