A truly dumb move. Good MLP's are a buy and hold til death do we part type of investment. Most traders in MLP's go bust, you really can't compete with the funds that jigger prices for reasons you will never know.
While it never hurts to take a profit, kind of an interesting time to sell, as EPD doesn't go ex-dividend until the 29th and has a good chance of continuing its upward movement through Friday. Of course, since I posted this, it will certainly go down just to mock me.
This is a really stupid thread with predictions of exact closing prices. Oil is correct in that EPD has historically move upward before going ex-div and tpp is correct that trading in MLPs creates some huge and very profitable situations, but usually only for your CPA.
