Market totally overreacted the other day. Gotta think there were alot of "dumb" folks that probably sold on the panic. Bet they are regreting it now...... It was like a step function downward, and then as the day went on, people realized, so rates are going to increase to 2%,big deal, now they have to take their money from selling MLP's and find a place to invest it and beat the 7% distributions that grow around 10% a year.....I don't argue that MLPs aren't as attractive now that rates are rising but the plunge was Mr Market acting irrational....a good opportunity to get into quite a few MLP's. Some of the riskier ones like MMLP and EEP(risky because of low coverage ratio) briefly crossed into 9% area if I did the numbers right. Some of the REITs look nice as well. Obviously that is another can of worms due to mortgages and what not but still, some well managed ones were hit pretty hard. If you are looking for income the MLP's are a pretty good sector to be in.
