You really really need to do your homework on MLP holdings in an IRA. You clearly do not understand the UBTI by your comments. It is almost always, a miniscule issue, and is not an issue when selling, it is an issue when holding. This is a topic that has been so grossly misunderstood that it is laughable at best.
I don't mean to interrupt in someone elses conversation but I know RRB from the old days and he is extremely knowledgeable on the subject of MLPs and it would probably be beneficial to you to pay attention to what he has to share with us on the message board.
Haven't heard from you in a long time since the old MWE days. I hope all is well with you and your family. i wanted to publicly thank you again for all the work you did in making me understand how MLP's operate and the money that can be made from them. i think the MWE story can be repeated here at VNR with the high distributions and the monthly payouts. Since I currently have (thanks to you) sufficient income from other securities I have recently started dripping the monthly VNR distributions into additional units. I particularly like their operating in mature fields and the monthly distributions and hope to accumulate a big bunch of units.
