The market did not like the Williams merger...thought the terms were bad....so I guess the whole MLP sector is being downgraded by this irrational market. I have held EPD since 2006 and don't recall anything like this. I recently bought more at $27 and $24.25. Also this is the end of the third quarter so mutual funds are doing their thing...and then there is the probable rate increase before year end. JMHO.
