I believe that high prices of oil, gas and propane have triggered a conservation process with nrgy customers and in the MLP area which will negatively effect earnings. That and the credit crisis contribute to the down turn in MLPS. NRGY did miss on the last two earnings reported. that did not help things much. i have trimmed back on my holdings in this mlp
Don't know the reason for the decline. Too nuch emotion in the market, too many people in the market. My broker, Raymond James, as of ten days ago still likes the stock and has a strong buy on it. Said he wishes he had other stocks as good.
