    Why has this lost 20%

    I paid an arm and a leg to my cpa for "only" selling a portion of my mlp's. I have now learned that:
    Never sell a portion of your position. Sell it ALL or sell none of it. This is critical to 'release' your suspended passive losses (treated as ordinary not capital losses) that you want to offset your ordinary gain recapture (due to accelerated depreciation) and likely capital gains (due to your reduced basis created by prior losses (practically guaranteed) and distributions).
