Roy,

thanks for your answer on PTP. But it was the first time I did not understand what you've said. The recapture I mentioned will result from depreciation of assets deduction, which made reportable taxable income much less than actual distribution. It is a very nice tax shield (for people who could be interested, symbol is SPH, and their investor relations site explains the way it works), but I'm tired of filling out their tax forms every year, and because it is considered a tax shelter, I was not allowed to file electronically! That is when I decided to get rid of the stock, and am trying to find best disposition.
