    why is this so weak?

    I agree with your post. I just wasn't sure if any company specific news was out that I was unaware of....thanks for your help...

    • One additional item I like about UGI is that they own 44% of Amerigas Partners (APU). Amerigas is a propane distributor. Amerigas is set up as a master limited partnership. The income that UGI derives from APU covers around 80% or more of the dividend. That allows UGI to reinvest a good portion of the income generated by the utilities back into the company, which in turn allows them to grow earnings, cash flow and of course, the dividends.

      UGI isn't a fast growing company, but they seem to keep growing the dividend year after year so that is nice, and their business model appears solid, with natural gas distribution being a relatively stable business.
