    My basis is also close to 0! I'm interested in some ideas, as to why I should, or not buy more to stay above 0 basis?
    Thanks

    PI,
    This has been a very useful discussion. I hope you will offer future comments periodically. Added some in my IRA this week.

    Your comments on MLPS continue to be mis-leading, 1/2 truths, and not qualified.
    Let's just stick BPT, where you exhibit "some" knowledge!
    Thanks

    EEQ, and KMR don't issue yearly 1099s! Divs are paid in shares quarterly.
    Taxed only when sold, at LTCG rates. Try it, you'll like it!
    Generally, the GP's are performing well, w/o tax issues you mention, IE KMI, etc
    Your broad comment on MLPS is mis-leading!
    I plan on leaving some MLPS to my kids, at which time they will step up
    to market price, avoiding any taxes, after my distributions were all tax free--What a country?

    "Everyone has their own views. That's what makes a market. I avoid MLP's because the general partner usually takes all of the money from the LP's. "

    My MLP "VIEW": examples, over 4-5 yrs: EPD[no GP] +230%, div on cost 8.9%. OKS + 92%, EEQ +61%, KMR +52%--both divs of aprox 10.8% on cost, and no 1099s!
    All better total returns vs my BPT holding.
    All have their tax issues.
    Still long BPT, and will add some this week.

    I hold in a taxable account. The calculation for page one of Sched E is quite clear, and found in the annual report that comes out around 1Q each year. Also shows up in my fidelity 1099. I believe there is some recapture on sale!
    Better to hold in a IRA, and forget any tax treatment!
    I'm buying more in my IRA.
    Long since 2004! Good cash payments.

    "•BPT reserves and production capacity has been extended by BP's increased investment in Prudhoe Bay"

    "PI", I thought BPT reserves were finite! How does BP'S action increase BPT'S reserves?
    Thanks

    How would one identify what portion of Ordinary divs [paid by UTG], are qualified for tax reporting purposes?
    Thanks

    Boring results. Particularly when including management fees, and paying div taxes at ordinary income! Buying the stocks in the etf portfolio, would do better w/ a dart board"
