If the eight cents/mo/share is the motivation....and you wanted something directly related to the Bakken then you might be better off with NTI since the distribution might be significantly better and the growth might also be.....and, if you compare both charts of PBKEF & NTI you will very quickly see a BIG difference.
OAS was up around 6% today.
CLR is also up
TPLM is also up about the same % as CLR
WLL up but not as much
KOG is up a little
I went to look at Petrobakken in a little more detail.
They have about the same poroduction as when we were discussing it back in Oct of 2011 when Jack liked it and they sold off some assets since then.
Since he seems to be able to spot the near-bottoms of it & since he saw the double bottom at $6.42...I guess that it is something to look at....but there are much, much faster growing Bakken companies.
Also....do you know why they bought about 17% of two other small companies?
