Denbury Resources (NYSE: DNR ) shares sold off earlier this week as investors did not look favorably on the company's move of initiating a dividend and remaining intact instead of forming into a master limited partnership (MLP). Unlike other oil producing MLPs, such as LINN Energy (NASDAQOTH: LINEQ ) , Denbury has tremendous organic growth opportunities and does not need to focus on growing its business through acquisitions.
The sell off was unwarranted as Denbury's strategy remains strong with escalating free cash flow expected in the next few years.
