    Scooter-

    Don't own WMB so only get to look at a few articles on iVillage. More concerned about OKS - own a small position.

    The iVillage MLP board has a lot of information (including some very informative spreadsheets). MLPdata.com will also help with your research.

    Absolutely; however, these have not been favorable to unit holders. More like "take unders" than "take overs".

    Now What?

    Look for further distribution cuts in MEMP, and throughout the E&P sector. Has been, and will continue to be a very poor place to invest.

    Look to the large cap mid stream NG MLP's - IMO, they have the best future.

    I have always found that the "Filled BeerCup" is the strongest of all technical indicators.

    If you have tracked recent MLP "takeunders", you know that the unit holders get screwed. The GP's acquire the MLP's for a multiple of their stock price. Once announced, prices of both tank. Prime example is CMLP/CEQP.

    Years ago mergers were a good thing - not anymore, at least not in the MLP sector.

  • Can Investors Trust Their Retirement To These Midstream Energy MLP Money Machines? [View article]
    There is far more to evaluating MLP's than just looking at whether DCF increases year over year, or quarter over quarter. Anyone investing in an MLP should be familiar with the following:

    DCF Coverage Ratio

    CAGR

    Interest Coverage Ratio

    Debt/EBITDA

    Wouldn't make any decisions without this knowledge.

    Actually, of the MLP's mentioned in this article, ETE is a GP, SPH is propane, CLMT is a refiner, and MMLP is terminaling/storage. The others are "Mid Streams".

    The pain has already shifted to the mid stream MLP's. Most have declined at least 25% to date.

  • New Residential Investment Corp. Is Now On Sale [View article]
    NRZ is indeed misunderstood and is lumped together with the other mREITs. I bought in the mid-12's and am thinking about adding.

    Unfortunately, NLY has not survived very well in the past. NLY has reduced their dividend approximately 11 times since 2009. Take a look at how their stock price has acted over time.

    Interest rates will go up at some point - you can count on that. The question is when? At that point one does not want to be holding mREITs.
