It`s sad that you really don`t understand EPD and probably the MLP sector in general. I can tell by reading your posts that you are overly concerned on EPDs daily and weekly moves which is a terrible way to value and to attempt to make money in any MLP.Pay attention to where EPD has been and you`ll see where it`s going. It very well may do the things you say in the short run but most of thiose invested in the MLPs are in it for the long haul.Either way I wish you luck in what you do.
I don`t believe i`ve ever seen anyone misunderstand a stock the way you appear to in your opinion of EPD. If you`re determined to pick a stock to bet against there are far better picks. Your thinking on EPD is completely Wrong Headed and not at all well thought out considering it`s history and its ability to grow organicly.EPD is a huge well run MLP that was set in the right direction by the late Dan Duncan, and although I didn`t personally care for him he built this company to be rock solid for the long haul. EPD is most defineatly the Tortiose in the race but the finish line is a long way off and EPD will be one of the few front runners at the end.
If what you say is true that would mean you think we are going to 18% interest rates. PS...Insiders would not be buying and funds would be dumping now! Volume would be greater not less than usual and analysts would be downgrading.
