Especially those last 2 words. If you hold in a taxable account and have held a few years so have a significantly reduced cost basis, then make sure you understand the tax implication of selling. After you pay the taxes, you have that much less principal to reinvest so keeping a similar portfolio cash flow would require you to reinvest in something with that much higher yield (risk).
Remember that distributions you received over the years are recaptured at ordinary income rates, not capital gains. In the extreme case, if you have zero cost basis, are in a high tax bracket and live in a high tax state like CA, you could owe close to 50% of your sales proceeds in tax (federal and state). Meaning if you reinvest in something with similar yield, your income gets cut by half. MLPs are like a marriage - divorce can be just too expensive.
