dive was just a money manager thing. hold the stock through 5/5 to make sure they qualify for the distribution (drip) of extra shares. then 5/6 good Q1 report results come out, driving up $ps. then sell some on the high to realize some profits (having already locked in the coming distribution). then depending on how many play it the same way, the $ps falls. then jump in again and buy more on the low. then the whole cycle starts again. regardless this is a good reliable mlp and over time makes a steady profit.
Everyone wants a beat on top and bottom line and ETP did. The few stocks I own, some beat top and bottom but eventually go down anyways...I just do not like the market. The market is never happy or never good enough with earnings. O'well, back to collecting the fat distribution while the stock trades at $53 to $56 range.
