UBS E-TRACS 2x Long Alerian MLP Infr ETN Message Board

    Buy and Hold?

    MLPL seems like an interesting ETN to just buy and hold and for the long term. Even if there was a 40% crash in the Alerian MLP index, you could just keep collecting the dividend and wait for the market to recover. If there was a 40% crash and MLPL lost 80% because of the leverage, as long as the dividend didn't get cut in the underlying MLPs, the dividend of MLPL would be huge (about 50%). I know this is an extreme example, but it seems to me that you could just keep collecting the dividend and ride it out if you had a long-term outlook. Anybody have any thoughts?
