rlp - are you seriously suggesting that MLPs have moved up some 8% in a "usual run up prior to the distribution"? The entire MLP universe has moved big time since the tax issues were settled. The distribution increases being put out have given further suggestion that the economy is good and exporting will happen and provide markets and pricing support. Hard to think anyone would be dumb enough to buy the price up some $3 for a .89 disstribution. There certainly will be a move as we get close to the ex div date, but hasn't that move always hapened in the week before the distribution and usually after the distribution was declared? Isn't the AMZ at an all time high?
