    I think it is a huge positive that they were able to keep the .27 cent divy with UAN price pressure and weak fertilizer market. Others were calling for weak or even no dividend. We will see if it pops this morning or not.

    I started my position in UAN in May 2011 and have sold and bought a little along the way. I am obviously way behind on paper, but I purchased it as an income stock, so I am very very long and can wait to hopefully recoup my capital investment. Currently own 19K shares and have collected over $72K in dividends with my average share price currently at $15.50. I check this board on occasion for entertainment purposes mainly. But I know you have been here a long time and usually a supporter. Sorry to see you sell, but I understand your frustration. Now up to $8.20, I just think with this big a run right before the announcement maybe someone knows it will be positive, I guess we will find out soon enough.

    Nice to be positive on a big down day for the market overall. This has not happened for a long time. On the contrary we see UAN down when the market is up quite often. Maybe we are in a new positive trend at last.

    Added another 1,000 shares today at $12.76. Looking for another run to $16 when divy is announced on the 30th. GLTA

    May 11 is ex day

  • smneedleman by smneedleman May 1, 2015 2:48 PM Flag

    Historically UAN has been in the low 20's when paying $0.40+ dividends. I look for that area in the near future. Plant downtime and lower divy has hurt in past to those who do not understand this concept, good move to hold money back by management this time so hopefully minimal reduction in divy if any at all and no price drop next quarter.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Any reason for being down at the open today???

  • smneedleman by smneedleman Dec 8, 2014 10:53 AM Flag

    Is there any reason for the long term holder (minimum 3 years) bot to buy VNRAP now at an over 11% yield. What is the likelyhood, if any, of the preferred stock not paying its dividend?!?!?!?!

    Getting the dividend today and the earnings release have no correlation. The next ex date is August 27. So, if they wanted to tie earnings to a meaningful dividend decision it would be made around that date. No conspiracy but nice try

    Purchased 500 shares KMP on 3/6/2014 at $75.58. What is the best thing to do as far as selling, if so at what price, or taking the deal for KMI?

    Love it, sweet chance to grab a bunch more shares and average down. Picked a few thousand at $10.11

    With nat gas soaring, we should see a nice pop in UAN?

    Investor Relations Response

    by smneedleman Aug 9, 2013 1:09 PM
    smneedleman smneedleman Aug 9, 2013 1:10 PM Flag

    On the afternoon of Thursday, July 25 (one week before we were scheduled to report Q2 earnings), we were informed by Icahn Enterprises (82% owner of CVI, our parent company) that IEP planned to announce a bond offering before market open on Monday, July 29. This resulted in UAN, CVI and CVRR needing to pre-release Q2 estimated results and updated full year outlooks by Friday, July 26 (the next day). We spent the evening of July 25 and the day of July 26 preparing and securing approval for the press release and related SEC filing for UAN. There are a number of steps required in this process given we needed approval at the UAN, CVI and IEP levels, and this took longer than we would have liked. This resulted in our press release not being publicly released until Friday evening. Clearly, this timing was not ideal from an investment community perspective…
    I recognize that the above explanation does not make the unit price decline any easier to deal with, but I wanted to give you some background on the sequence of events as it goes directly to your view of UAN management. I can tell you that our management team is very focused on the needs of our unitholders --- no matter what the size of their investment. As we have done in the past, we plan to continue our efforts of responsibly managing and growing the partnership for the benefit of all our unitholders well into the future.
    Sorry for the long response … thanks for your time.

    Best regards,

  • I took the advice of greenroger22 and contacted Wes Harris about my frustration with the poor communication of the plant unexpected down time. I was appreciative of his candid response:
    We appreciate your note and understand your frustration with the unit price ... we are disappointed as well.
    While clearly unfortunate, I believe it is important for investors to understand that the downtime in late May and early June combined with the lower ammonia production after the second plant outage did not move us below our previous outlook of 2013 full year distributable cash flow of $2.15 to $2.45 per unit. This did not happen until the second week of July when we entered into orders for second half 2013 production as part of the annual fill season process at prices that were much lower than what was included in our $2.15 to $2.45 outlook.
    We then spent time over the following days analyzing whether we should continue to operate the facility at the reduced ammonia (and thereby UAN) production rates or should we bring the plant down in the near term to replace the damaged catalyst. Given the current lower pricing environment and the risk of further degradation of the catalyst that could lead to having to bring the plant down for repairs later in a potentially higher pricing environment, we decided it was best to bring the plant down on Saturday, July 27.

    Thank you Cramer for your idiotic analysis that even my fifth grader knows is wrong. Now I just bought another 1,000 shares under $24. At the $2.45 distribution rate my 401K's largest holding will now yield a whopping 10.316% plus any appreciation in share price once these fools realize the yield is not 3-4%.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • smneedleman by smneedleman Jan 28, 2013 2:25 PM Flag

    Nice sell off on the low dividend from non-investors who are uninformed that the dividend will return to normal and then some once new plant is operational. Doubled my position here at $26.90, now up to 4K shares.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
