The firm's top names have strong exposure to what it sees as the coming oil boom: PAA, MMP, EEP, EPD, GEL, KMR, KMP and KMI, plus ETFs KYN and SRV.

  • OK, looks interesting, but did they get all the appealing MLP? Suspect not, so run the list first.

     

    Be aware of the holding issues when held in a taxable account, you might earn the dividend again trying to report the earnings.

  • Consult your tax advisor if you hold MLPs in your IRA(s). There are other tax issues that may come into play that can be different from a non-qualified account.

     

    I'm not saying don't hold them or hold them. Everyone's situation is different but the regulations can change.

     

    That being said I've held PAA since it was Leviathan!
