Although we don't believe in timing the market or panicking over market movements, we do like to keep an eye on big changes -- just in case they're material to our investing thesis.
What: Shares of Cheniere Energy Partners
So what: The company reported a net loss of $2.6 million in the quarter, or a per-share loss of $0.02. But the reason for the big move was a huge spike in trading that bumped volume higher. In the past three months, an average of 180,000 shares traded hands per day, but today nearly 1 million shares had traded hands with over an hour left in the trading day.
Now what: The company is expecting to maintain annualized distributions at $1.70, so investors are focusing on the weaker results this quarter instead of a rising yield. After the drop, Cheniere now has an even more attractive 8.7% yield, but the loss has me a little concerned. I am going to leave today's move alone on worries about lower earnings and a fast falling cash level.
