    I think KMPs weakness this week

    Is due to the guidance that distribution growth will slow considerably next year

    2012 grew by 8% over 2011

    Guidance calls for 6% growth moving forward for 2013 (thats -25%)

    Probably the law of bigger #s as much as anything but a slowdown in the distribution growth is a negative and caps the value of the units. We won't see $90 again any time soon

    but it also allows the DCF to dist ratio to become healthier

    Article by analyst this week called for 16% unit price growth for MLPs in 2013 but I don't see it.

    I think the year will be rather flat for MLPs if not somewhat negative
