Falling commodity prices, tightening processing margins and renewed fears of a European banking crisis have dragged down master limited partnerships, but Credit Suisse says fundamentals remain strong. The firm suggests investors overweight MLP portfolios with large-cap, diversified names such as Kinder Morgan (KMP), Enterprise Products (EPD) and Plains All American (PAA).

    MWE is down especially hard. Its set to grow rapidly over the next 3 years, and is providing investors who have missed the rapid run up a chance to get in.

    Compared to 2008-2009, it's hardly a blip. I can't come up with any fundamentals driving the selloff of MWE in recent weeks, so it's probably well-heeled funds raising cash. I'd sure like to see it break below 50 so I could get some at fire-sale prices.

    They're all still too high. The overall pullback still has a way to go, in my opinion.

    Having invested in KMP, EPD and PAA for a long time I would caution investing with the expectation of capital gain. These are limited partnerships. When you buy units you become a limited partner with all the implied risks.
    However Kinder Morgan, Enterprise and Plains have been enormously successful in executing their business plan and provide a reliable source of income for their investors. Tax deferred.
