    After submitting an article of MLP GPs Friday night - I found two problems I wanted to correct. That was done Saturday night. There were technical problems that arose when that correction was done. That has delayed publication by an unknown amount of time. I do not know when publication will come. But be forewarned that - while the article is very data intensive - it is probably a "must read" for many of you. Here are the stats for the Friday ending data.

    NOTE: In the above and all in all other historical data on GPs, the comparisons are off due to the inclusion in dates prior to October 2009 of high growth and low yield MGG, and the inclusion high growth and low yield BGH and EPE prior to 2010. For 2011, the inclusion of c-corps OKS and TRGP have served as forces to lower average yields and raise the P/E ratios. For 2012, the inclusion of c-corps KMI and WMB have served as forces to lower average yields and raise P/E ratios. For 2013, the Devon merger and the inclusion of WGP served as forces to lower average yields and raise P/E ratios. For 2014, the inclusion of PAGP at the end of March lowered sector average yields from 3.68% to 3.51%. NSH is becoming less of a risk and less of a force in raising the average. There were times in 2009 and 2010 when ATLS and XTXI were not paying dividends. Given the number of exits and new inclusions, and the changing mix of c-corps in this data, this data is of significantly less utility than similar data that I have done for other MLPs sub-sectors.

    Seems like ATLS is in value territory.
