  • MLPs -- Part 5: MLPs Passing Very Simple Fundamental Screen [View article]
    That is an incorrect observation. We have not sold our MLP positions during this series.

  • Conservative Equity Income Filter: Part 1 [View article]
    That is an important subsequent dimension for this particular screen. You are right to look to that. All things being equal, you may be better off with lower debt companies.

    Instead of "woodeneye", you should be "sharpeye"

    Thanks. That is a typo. Should say "MLPs". We'll fix that on our site and see if SA can fix it here.

  • MLPs -- Part 3: Correlation Between Stocks, Bonds and MLPs [View article]
    Can you provide source for that? Would be helpful. We did a correlation analysis for all of the ETFs at iShares with three years of data (their tool appears to be a price correlator -- they do not identify total return on their literature and the correlations are lower than for the total returns at Vanguard). For those HYG, for example, which is lower quality bonds has a correlation of 0.50. Others are PFF 0.59, IVV 0.44, IYR 0.31, LQD 0.25, AGG -0.16 and IEF -0.50 [data for period 7/31/2007 through 7/31/2010]

    Vanguard has this language in the footnotes to their correlation calculator:

    "The calculator results show correlations of investment returns assuming reinvestment of dividends and capital gains ..."

    We will discuss the structure and tax issues in coming Parts. Your question asked about limited partnerships versus general partnerships, but you may have meant to ask about the difference between investing as a limited partners versus investing in shares of the general partner of a limited partnership.

    If the latter, limited partners own the underlying asset (such as a pipeline), whereas the general partner in which you can buy shares, if the general partner is public, operates the limited partnership for a fee arrangement that entitles it to certain portions of the revenue or profits arising from the partnership as a whole (the general partner may also own some of the limited partnership units), and may have some fixed fee earnings or expense reimbursement rights. General partnerships are something altogether different and not relevant to the MLP discussion.

    When you click the image, your computer is opening the larger image in reduced size to fit your screen better. If you click the new image, it will enlarge (at least that is what it does on our MACs and PCs).

    Wow, we loaded another of our tables in that spot. Sorry, we'll fix that on our site and ask SA to replace the image here. That is frustrating, but you are correct.
