For two years NRP shares have fallen while revenue, income and distribution increased. Have recovered a bit but with just 20 days till ex date the shares have lost 60 cents over the past two days. That's a nickle more than the distribution that will be paid. Also, and just recently, analyst have issued many favorable comments. Hard to make sense of it. Would bet that we will lose more before ex date. Dow and natural gas had a good move up today. A few of the coal shares were also up.
NRP traded more than 100,000 shares in the last 20 minutes (almost half of the days trading).
