I saw some Mr. Bar-B-Q items advertised in the Macy's insert ad for this weekend that came in newspaper yesterday. Never noticed this brand there before, but maybe it is seasonal, and they promoted it last spring too?
Excuse me, you think Mr. Bar-B-Q is going to save this company? You can't pay out more than you take in--you can keep borrowing at low interest rates to pay out the distribution but one day the music will stop and there will be no chairs to sit in. I know they have paid out for the last 75 qtrs. but it can't go on.
MLP's must keep acquiring assets to maintain cash flow--they trade like bonds-and when/if interest rates go higher people will dump on these for more safe investments-companies that actually make money and don't over pay their execs for lower than average performance.
