Everyone is piling into the stock before they announce the 1Q dividend next week. I'm looking for a minimum of $.60, which works out to an 11% yield. 11% is a tremendous yield considering that this LP has been able to hold its reserves steady over the last 5 years or so (i.e. no depletion).
113,729 shares on an absolute basis is not that large. DMLP is not a high volume stock, so it does not take a lot of action to look exciting or to move the price. Up 4.95% is pretty nice, and darned exciting for the unitholders. There have been days both up and down with the high-low more than today. This may have been the best close vs previous close for the year.
It's best to use limit orders with most shares, and with DMLP it is even more so.
