Propane is cleaner and a lot cheaper for automobiles. It's a long shot, but if it takes off, could be a big win.

This stock is a nat gas casualty, in part because of the warm northeast winter. Stable business and customer base, and safe dividend will bring it back.

This stock's 6.52% dividend is just too good to pass up. The next ex dividend date is coming up on 7/29/11.

The mgmt has been consistent in its ability to steer the co. in a volatile market, hence my vote and holding.

With the earnings being seasonal, they make money in the winter and lose money in the summer, it makes looking at their numbers interesting reading.

Propane tends to have a pretty stable customer base. From my limited experience, it seems that a fair amount of people that use propane tend to live in lower income areas away from cities and big towns. The options are limited for heating your house in those areas and it can be quite expensive to switch to another form of heat.

Since this is a partnership, you are a unitholder, not a shareholder, and they pay distributions, not dividends. With that being said, I am assuming that CAPS handles distributions the same way that it handles dividends as they are essentially the same in this regard. The distribution is being increased almost every quarter. It is currently paying a 7.5% distribution. While the stock price itself may not outperform the S&P, with the distribution factored in, it should outperform nicely. With a payout that large, SPH only needs to go up 2 or 3% per year in order to beat the S&P's historic average.

I'm not sure why Suburban Propane is such a hot prospect but this is the second time I've owned in 5 years. The numbers just add up and the dividends bring smiles to my lips and warmth to my hearth. As a customer, I have to say they are easy to work with but they don't have the money incentives for insulation and so forth that the natural gas competitors offer. Besides electricity, hydrogen, cooking oil and natural gas, propane is another competitor as an automotive fuel. It has some infrastructure in place and burns more effeciently in engines that are already in cars today than natural gas.

Propane, as a fuel, enjoys a captive clientele – those people who live too far from natural gas transmission lines to heat with NG and too smart to heat with electricity. Suburban Propane Partners (SPH) is the ‘go to’ choice for almost one million such customers. It’s a well regarded and well run company whose stock has a dividend that has consistently increased, and is currently over 7%.
