Earlier this week, one of those Fools, chicagoadvisor, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

Trust spin off from [Chesapeake Energy] with almost twice as many wells to be drilled than currently operating by 2016. Portion of production hedged in the trust as well, this looks like a rewarding dividend yield that will give the market something to chew on. I own it. I like it.
