    I use price in my analysis since this is the measure of profit if you sell. However, I understand why some investors focus on NAV. I agree that investors have to be careful with the changing landscape. Thanks for your comment.

    My source was Morningstar, which shows 3.9% for past 12 months. Thanks for the comment. I will try to check other sources.

    Thanks for your comment. I have been thinking of assessing risk versus reward for individual MLP for the investor who wants to basically construct his own fund.

    Thanks for the comment. If the NAV declines, it is more difficult to determine if the ROC is non-destructive but I will attempt to clarify in future articles.

    You make some good points. The rate of return is the total return (including distributions) on the price, not the NAV. I use volatility as my measure of risk but I realize that there are many other definitions that might work better for some investors. Thanks for the comment and kind words.
