For the last three years (and maybe more), those juicy dividends have come from incremental debt and stock issuances. How long can this go on? Just read the Cash Flow Statements. You don't have to be Warren Buffet. I'm short on this train wreck in-progress. The first time the banks or wire houses say "No more," it's bye-bye dividend.
really? You should probably read an MLP primer or the HUGE feature on MLP's in Barrons this past weekend. I'm not saying the unit price is going to the moon, but the dividend is EASILY sustainable, well over the coverage ratio and room for growth as it has for like 30 straight quarters.
You might get a few bucks lower if oil drops, but have fun paying that distribution or covering before the ex-date.
