    EPD great MLP but yield is low and market cap is over 55Billion priced to perfection. Why not diversify and get

    some BDC's like BDCL which is a diversified portfolio of BDC's an ETN similar to an ETF. This can beef up a portfolio of sagging yields of MLP's it's distribution is a whopping 15% !!!!!!!!!!!

    • Steve - I own several BDCs but none with a 15% yield. Wonder how risky the holdings of BDCL are? There is only one reason anything yields 15% - high risk! just wondering about yields on MLPs. Since unit prices have gone nowhere or a bit down since spring on average why are your MLP yields sagging?

      • The other reason not to own BDCL after looking at it for a minute is it is 2X leveraged. Thus if BDCs go down it goes down 2X the BDC index. Definately too risky for me. At some point this market wil turn down a bit. In that situation BDCs go down over three times as fast because they invest in riskier companies. Thus BDCL is great if things go right but a disaster on the way down. I would rather have tax sheltered income at a lower rate instead of mostly ordinary income, plus be able to go away and not have to watch my investment every day.
