My geuss is that EEP is just one more horse in the stable for MLP investors. It just plugs along paying the distributions every qtr. Investors probably hold several MLP's and exchange thoughts on other boards, such as tax info, etc.
It doesn't bother me that the board is quiet except for the paucity of news when the price drops unexpectedly.
I thought about trading into something else with the narrow price range of the last couple years but when I compared it to KMP, EEP was right on par with my long term performance.
I just take the $; endure the quiet.
