"It pays an annual dividend of 8.9%. Plus it recently hiked the Q4 2011 distribution by 15%. Admittedly this stock is riskier than some others with a market cap of only $764.22M, but you can't argue with its results. QRE is forecast to grow EPS by 87.80% in 2012. This should help the stock price. Plus it has a strong relationship with its sponsor/owner (67%), Quantum Resources Fund.
In fact the drop down buys from QRF are a major source of growth. It is also able to acquire easily from affiliate Quantum Energy Partners. These relationships have allowed QRE to grow production by 165% and reserves by 126% since its Dec. 2010 IPO. This beneficial relationship will continue."
