Previous guidance guidelines have been side-stepped because of various incidental expenses that the company did not foresee. I don't remember the exact years, but these were the Crosstex years, when it happened.
Botttom line..do you feel confident that ENLK will make their guidance guidelines for distributions for unit holders based on the numbers you presented above for the next 3 quarters (and I wonder where it will go from there)?
So, do we have to worry about all of that swizzle stick craziness of the IDR's of the GPs dividends possibly putting the screws on the upward growth of our distributions or do we become the new KMP or whatever with a fat distribution by the end of 2016? Does anyone forecast that this trickle-down from all the mergers will start producing more than just .005 increases per quarter? The street has us a BUY (ENLK) and they are bullish, and I for one would like to see more than just a .005 increase every quarter. There is Devon, Howard Energy, (who am I leaving out?) all pretty big earners. Fixed fee contracts and contracts based on the price of oil/gas/BOE. Finance Yahoo predicts massive percentage growth.
