Until the investor types feel comfortable re-entering the market, the trader types with "sell the rally" mind sets will rule and the yield is subordinate. Others think that the MLP sector sold off first due to the sector's association with the carry traders yen hedge. Second sell off of the sector was to raise cash to cover the sub-prime mess. This third round maybe due to margin call and margin reductions from ten to one to five to one. Remember, in this market condition if you need cash you don't sell what you have, you sell what you can. Just my observations. Any other ideas?
your logic sounds good to me, and if we're on target, when do we run out of sellers?
Volume has been low, I thought that all when people see their roll-over CDs paying just 2.5 or 3 percent they would be all over some of these MLPs. It's gotta be just a matter or time. I mean, it's not like dividends are going down.
