EPD is now the standard for MLPs. It used to be MKP, but thier coverage ratio has gotten to as low as .96X - not good. EPD is going to move upward and downward with the MLPs and move slowly up along with the distribution. The .015 this quarter is a one off event and we go to .01 for 2013. Am happy to have the return be secure and steadily increasing as a hedge against rising interest rates and inflation. Got to remember that like it or not - MLPs often have a dwon day when the market is up because of the big funds getting in or out. The following day is sometimes a reversal. As I always preach - with little good it seems - look at the monthly trend and not daily movements. If anyone can predict daily movements they would be worth trillions and not posting here.
