Although I doubt anyone spent time looking into this, I just wanted to point out that UAN is having another successful divy run. I've played the divy run three times now gaining approximately 12, 13 and 10 percent on the three runs. The most recent run (%10 or roughly $2.50 per share) occured when other MLPs like PAA, EPD, ETP, and CQP failed to reach their historical potential. The reason I bring this up is that UAN operates in a completely different sector than the energy/pipeline MLPs that a lot of people were investing on here. In other words it adds diversification to those doing the MLP divvy run. A couple disclaimers though; UAN is a newer company that has lower volume, therefore it is more susceptible to larger volatility (not sure about options on this company), it is also in the process of expanding (building a second chemical plant) which influences its balance sheet.
Just thought I'd share for anyone who wasn't too discouraged with the most recent MLP run and looking to give it another go for the 4Q
Again, I don't do options (yet) but I have noticed this as well. That is why I have recently been selling before ex each time. This quarter could be different though. I expect them to have a bang up earnings release which conveniently coincides with ex on 11/5. So I will probably collect the distribution and wait for earnings and then decide.
