I agree. Revenue is up over prior periods, net is up, the market value of the stock is DOWN. This may be a great BUY opportunity for income and modest price appreciation.
Just my take on it.
SPH is acquired for the dependable income stream. They sell propane in rural areas and have been doing it for more than 50 years. Most propane is consumed during winter months. Go figure.
If you are looking for rocket science, SPH is not the way to go, but it is the way to go for income, imo.
NMM has never missed a dividend since 2008. The company has paid consistently even during the difficult times of 2008 - 2011. The dividend has been increased ten (10) times since 2008. This says more to me than the writings of a street analyst.
Dividend of $9.58 per share to be posted on April 13th. Not too bad!
