here's how stupid some of us are: i bought about 7 yrs ago....well under $20. even being down from $60, my paper gains look good, and that's not even taking into acc't the distros; however, i'm not selling. distros rec'd on the cost basis are amazing.
over the 7 yrs, new offerings have only temporarily pulled the stock down all while eventually increasing distros.
most mlps are meant to hold and etp is a classic example of the benefits one receives for being patient.
