I really truly cannot believe the posts on this board.
A couple facts - ETP has NEVER paid a single penny in dividends. It is a MLP that pays distributions. BIG BIG difference. Distributions are reported by the company on a K-1, not by your broker on a 1099B. PLEASE read up at naptp.org and read MLP 101. OK?
Last, the cash flow for ETP is negative. They have been borrowing and issuing units (they also have no shares outstanding) to put about $1Billion in assets into service last year and some $3.5Billion will go into service in 2012.
