18.3% yield so it is definitely paying out more than 100%. The market is basically saying they're going to have to cut the yield at some point.

Convertible debenture maturing 2017. Is company at risk in defaulting on interest payments? (Joey owns some senior debt because of better protection.) These have sold off rather sharply. Company just announced a cut in its dividend on common stock, which would save them money but company has been downgraded further into junk territory. Could fall further if there are poor business conditions for them.

Have just cut the dividend in half. Payout ratio of about 40%-45%. Would like the 10% payout if it is secure and the possibility of a lot of capital appreciation so he is going to do some number crunching.

Stock is discounting a bad scenario regarding convertible dept and a stressed balance sheet. You are finding a bottom in the name. Does not think it will drop to zero.

Looked at this company years ago but never bought. Has done very well over all. Managed to sustain their high payout. Current yield is almost 20% and there are questions if it is sustainable. The high-yield is a dangerous sign.

You will probably be alright. The issue is there are several business units, the dominant on of which is propane and has some seasonality with it. It just got thrown out with the bath water. Not a tremendous upside but you are OK on the dividend.

There has been no good story on the 3 year chart. You have some support about 3 years ago. Don’t sell it and don’t average down. If it broke down with some volume by 3% by Friday, get out next week.

Doesn't own stocks but does own bonds. Like a lot of income trusts, they were so used to paying out high distributions they have trouble cutting back.. Paying out too much of their earnings and are rated below investment grade. Also exposed to US housing.

Propane, pulp chemicals and dry wall construction distribution. Last quarter was good with the cold winter. Feels their debt levels are too high. Regarding the dividend payout, it’s a higher risk.

Main business is propane and heating oil distribution in Canada and the US. Q1 earnings were pretty good but the balance sheet is still very stretched and payout ratio is higher than he likes. Yield of 10.5% is very good, but doesn’t expect much capital appreciation.

15% dividend. Followed it on and off for years. It is not as juicy as it was previously because they cut their dividend. When a company cuts dividend, there is often more cuts, although not necessarily in this one. He would put this one in the watch camp.

Always has trouble with their model. Mish-mash mix of business such as propane, building materials, chemicals, etc. Could never understand the advantage of having that together. Doesn’t thinks the operational performance is there.

Leading propane and heating oil distributor in North America. A little cautious on this name. Has reduced guidance over a number of quarters. Payout ratio is over 100%. Questions if the dividend needs to be readjusted. About 13% yield.

Doesn’t expect dividend to go up. It’s a matter of when the dividend will be cut. 14% yield is a warning right there.
