Enerplus Royalty Trust: Update. 2005-11-03
We have made excellent profits from this Royalty Trust over the last 2 years.
We still have Enerplus as a hold in our Dependable portfolio, because it is increasing its dividends.
Below are a few snippets from recent press releases regarding Enerplus.
Another energy trust getting fresh guru funds is Enerplus Resources Fund (NYSE: ERF ), a Canadian trust that yields a hefty 10.3%. In the last two weeks, gurus have added more than 50% to their holdings, with most of that buying in the last week. The trust said last week that third-quarter funds from operations were up 30% to $1.77 per share. Gurus like the trust, which has not been hit as hard in recent months as many other oil and gas stocks have.
