Based on several articles posted by these 2 sites, I am beginning to wonder if either really understands the true nature of MLP's and more specifically EPD. They often cite reasons why EPD is too expensive or that they cannot maintain their projected growth rates by using metrics such as commodity price risk, debt-to equity, and payout ratio. Does anyone else tire of these articles? I have to quit reading them!
I read Motley Fool sometimes and subscribe to one service - Stock Advisor. Some of the recommendations seem pretty good and some I ignore. The member contributed articles are more random. I sometimes read Seeking Alpha articles but rarely follow recommendations there.
Motley Fools articles are computer generated. They generally do not factor in the difference between MLPs and corporations.
Seeking Alpha is just a forum with many contributors. Some understand them well, others not. It's usually not too difficult to spot which is which.
