    Jeff-

    My point is that almost every year this tax conversation is reincarnated by someone in Congress.

    Can't help since I am not using FG, so I use the YAHOO data.

    It seems like almost every year, someone in Congess mentions changing the MLP tax laws - hasn't happened yet, and I personally don't think it will anytime soon.

    mlpdata affords a wealth of information for the evaluation of MLP's. Critical metrics include DCF trends, the DCF Coverage Ratio etc. You can also find superior metrics in articles written by Factoids, including CAGR's.

    An additional criteria is the ratio of Debt to EBITDA which can be determined from Yahoo Key Statistics (less than 4.0/1 looks pretty good in today's markets).

    The title of your article "Tax Changes Coming" implies this to be a foregone conclusion. This has been brought up, discussed and dismissed every year.

    Do a bit more research before taking something out of context from a politician's statement before turning it into an article.

    NO BDC is a buy unless their NII covers the dividend. Look around, there are better ones out there.

    Hypothetically, it would take Russia about two hours to take over the Middle East oilfields.

    If I am not mistaken, SDRL's management said that the dividend would be "sustainable" through early 2016. They did not say it would be "sustained".

    I am not bashing TBTEF by any means as I have a long position. Just look at SDRL, NADL and others where management promised a sustainable dividend and then turned around and suspended it.

    In a small operation like TBTEF I don't think they will think twice about dropping the dividend the instant things get tough. JMO.

    Nice article, but pure fiction. When the pressure is on, the dividend will be the first thing to go.
