Dynagas (NYSE: DLNG) released earnings on June 5 and had its conference call on June 6.

I did my part to help produce this dichotomy, starting to soak up more preferred B shares in the high $15s and low $16s during and after the call. I could be wrong, but I continue to think the preferred quite attractive.
