Essentially no change. Price December 9, 2011: 37.47.
What about two years ago, December 9, 2010: 37.50
Compare it's return to the pipelines, which seems to me were dismissed a year ago as not having much future (along with distributions, and are for one year ago - to date):
MMP: +18% (+19% distribution increase w/ a 2/1 stock split)
PAA: +36% (+9% dist. increase and 2/1 split)
EPB: +32% (+18% increase)
HEP: +25% (+5.7% increase)
To be fair, not all pipes are up for the year. KMP, WPZ, EPD, ETP, BWP and OKS are down 2-7%.
Why bother to do each individually? You can just look at ^AMZX to see the basket and that LINE has underperformed the average for the last few years on a total return basis. As the original poster pointed out, it is the high distribution growth pipes and midstreams as usual that provide the highest total returns.
