    ((Comparing FPG, SPH, APU, ETP))

    Please add to the conversation if you have a good idea as to which of these is the best. Here's what I came up with:

    FPG has the highest yield but I don�t see where the money is coming from to pay it. Their EPS on either a diluted or NON diluted basis don�t show $2/share so how is it payable at that rate? SPH shows enough EPS, even on a diluted basis, to cover their div. Both APU and ETP show enough (on a NON-diluted) basis to cover theirs too. FGP doesn't show enough on a diluted OR NON-diluted basis to cover the div.

    Anyone??

    I was debating investing in FGP but now I'm leaning towards SPH and APU. They both have lower P/E's and higher NET Margins than FGP. A little less yield but seemingly more easily paid.

    ETP has the lowest P/B and Debt/Equity and that I found but also has the lowest yield. They also make 72K per employee which is a good efficiency rate.

    If I wanted the one with the best looking statistics I'd take ETP but to get a little more yield both SPH and APU look good to me.

    Thoughts??
