If I remember correctly this stock ipo was 19. with the distribution at 1.90 but they prorated the distribution for a small amount because of the date of the ipo. The price started falling. We were able to get shares for about 12 when it fell further which is a bargain. It is difficult to get in on a stock so cheaply that is this profitable. I have a lot of shares and will buy a lot more if it gets as cheap as it was or will probably buy more anyway if it stays this cheap. My shares average between 19 and 12 so am doing well. Good luck with your decision.
As lre becomes more well known, it is doubtful that it will ever fall to previous levels. 17 is very cheap with 1.90 distribution in oil & gas which is what you originally asked. Sorry to get lost in my reply. The distribution looks very secure.
