    Noticed the sell advice coming in...their comments fit with yours...I sold half today. To sell or hold the other half, that is the question..approaching 7% yield. Management didn't say things were going south for the company. At some point in the mid teens this would seem to be a buy even if management doesn't talk to analysts.

    They seem to be a private company in approach to PR. I'd be interested in your determination of the coverage of the dividend. Thanks for the clarification relative to what it is they store.

    fredrick901, that's what the market seems to be saying...unenlightening and disappointing. Curious it was difficult to determine how much the company made last year. 87 cents, yes but I didn't see that number even in the press release. Amazes me that this company can't do better with the glut of oil needing storage...simpleton me...I'll listen to the conference call though I suspect from your comment I won't learn much...NUTS I thought this would be a pretty straight forward way to make 6% without too much volatility.
