    New MWE marketing combination 7.30 yahoo PM

    I fully expected this when it was announced that EMG was backing Aubrey. EMG is a very good partner for MWE (And always has been) They finance deals that MWE can't handle then the sell their share to MWE and take subordinated units for about half the deal. Then they use the money they receive from MWE for the cash portion of the transaction and make a new deal with MWE to open up a whole new frontier of growth and pay the first Buillion to start the construction that allows MWE to catch their breath (money wise) and grow where they never would have been able to afford to do on their own. And meanwhile EMG with their spare pocket change partner up with a potential MWE customer to steer additional 60,000 acres business to MWE.

    It always helps in business if you have a rich uncle that is willing to help you out if you need it.

    thats a long time and a lot of distributions to be to be distributed to patient unitholders.

    If you have a long term investment horizon time frame, then the time to buy is when prices are temporarily lower. Especially when they are paying a large monthly distribution while the price recovers. Over time about 40% of portfolio growth comes from dividends/distributions and the balance from price appreciation.

    good luck

    Strange trading pattern this week

    Donedealer:
    The question has ALWAYS been the future. The future of 10 years ago has now become the past 10 years that we all understand NOW. 10 years ago it was the future and we had the same questions. Some sold in fear and never recovered. Some were buying as others were selling at the bottom and were handsomely rewarded.
    We are now at this point in time where we are asking the same question about the current future.

    good luck

    Jam:
    It takes courage to get rich. Confidence in your opinion over the opinions of others that are based on fear. Natural gas is not going away. VNR is not going away. The only ones going away are those that are selling in fear.
    The best time to buy is when there is fear in the markets.

    I've been making money here for the past 10 years since before the meltdown- with the dividends--
    During the meltdown-buying a mountain of shares- around and below $1.00
    Receiving the 33% stock dividend at $3.24 a share in 2009 on the mountain of shares bought at or below $1.00
    And now waiting for the restructuring-dividend resumption-share buyback or whatever management decides to do to create more value.
    Millions have been made here by those that are paying attention.

    ---Sure do not like the way the stock is acting,----

    The "stock" is not acting. People are "acting" based on their fears and emotions. If their fears are incorrect than this will prove to be a buying opportunity. More money can be made when others are fearful and emotional than when everyone are "high fiving" each other, and singing Kum-Bay-Ya while toasting marshmallows around a campfire.

    Buster:
    Maybe the stupid people are the sellers, that sold below the prices that top management bought. Top management has all the inside info and they bought while the public who only have fear and no information is selling. The selling by the uninformed is creating a buying opportunity. The buying by the insiders is giving you a clue of what the long term right thing to do is.

    good luck

    VNR's previous preferred securities holders are issued a K-1. I would assume the "C" preferred will do the same. I do not own the preferred's so I don't know what the tax treatment is. You could call the Investor Relations dept and get the information you need and probably the prospectus which will have a lot more info.
