Have had 2 soft quarters in terms of margins and is looking to see the next quarter. It should come back, but there are weather issues, margin issues and supply/demand issues. Terrific long-term company.

Increased distributions from $.12 monthly to $.20 and more recently $.22. Appear to be earning $.40 a month so distribution should be secure. Unit prices soft because of fear of a softening in the economy. If you feel economy is going off a cliff, don't buy. (He doesn't!) 19.1% yield

Has been a steady Eddie. Hs preference has been Trans Canada (TRP-) or Enbridge (E#NB-T) because of scale, nature of the assets and the debt structure. These 2 are probably better choices for growth.
