What is really cool besides everything else is EPD bought out the GP! So EPD has an extra kicker compared to all the other the other MLPs.
I've been investing in the space since 2002 when Enron went down and Buffett and Larry Tish were buying pipelines at depressed prices. When the whole sector got clobbered I bought PAA at 24 and KMP at 31.
In the last downturn, I didn't hit the bottom but picked up some EPD at 20.5. Since then I've added so much EPD that EPD is a bigger position than all my other MLP holdings combined.
There is a reason why Dan Duncan was the richest guy in Houston when he died! He knew what the heck was going on and his boys in mgt. are the best!
We will see above average distribution growth in the future and we also have the best run large MLP in America.
