I think we should look at who NRP is selling their coal to and the type of coal they produce. That is what is going to drive the price of the stock. No sales, stock goes down. Right now it is holding it's price, (+/- 10%) due to it's sales. More sales, stock goes up; less, stock goes down.
You should always diversify your portfolio. Investing half of your funds in one stock is dangerous, especially one that pays large dividends. There is a reason it does that. Break up your portfolio into different areas and when some go down, others go up.
There is always profit when there is risk. The bigger the profit, (Yeild) the bigger the risk.
Then you should invest in LG tankers also. From what I understand, there is no pipe line from here to China or Japan or Europe.
Laser sights are for old people and those who can't shoot. They are actually more trouble than they are worth.
I have a feeling that due to the tax structures that will fall in place the first of the year and the political flux that is in presently in place, there may be an added or single increase in the distributation before the end of the year.
Hang tight guys,
I invested in this with the money I earned, not given to me by some greedy Union jerk who spends half his time and a lot of his money, complaining about how those of us who worked hard and saved our money so he could have a job.
Get real, the unions are breaking this country. Look at NY and Calif if you don't beleive that.
Think about it for a minute........why pay $1.15 for a dividend that is $.56? There is something else like anticipating the next planting season....maybe?
I think it will continue to drop until we get close to the elections and then see a rapid gain. Oboma ain't gonna make it,,,,,,,,,,,,,
