chart, i have looked at charts over a 3 year period for MLPS's and i see a general weakness in Aug-Sept time frames and then a rally there after. I would like your thoughts or others who may care to comment toolate
The data that I have is slightly different: 0.4625, 0.4875, 0.5000, 0.5500, 0.5875, 0.6375, .7500
I can source the first distribution to a press release on Jan 21st in 2005 - when, pre-split, ETP announced that is planned to increase its distribution "from $3.50 to $3.70 per common unit". $3.70 would be at the rate of 92.50 cents/quarter - then figure in the split and that gets one to 46.25 cents.
Chart - heck if I know if such a trivial difference would matter to you. It would not to me - but I thought that you might want to know.
