    from a high of $88 to where it is now = -$16.50 wow!
    All the others cvx, cop, psx are coming back.
    So why the -18% free fall?
    Also the price of oil has seemed to settle to where it is now.
    Insider buying was 1 with no sells for the past 12 months.

    PRICE DROP

    From SA:MLP’s have had two major appeals for investors: high, tax-favored yields and a play on the U.S. energy boom.

    But lately MLP shares have been getting absolutely crushed. Prior to a small bounce Tuesday, the $8.8 billion Alerian MLP exchange traded fund lost 4.5% on Monday and is down 8.7% over the past month.

    On the surface it might seem simple: MLPs are primarily in the business of building and operating natural gas and oil pipelines and storage. And oil prices have collapsed. Ergo, some might think, sell MLPs.

    That line of thinking is wrong, notes Miller Howard, an $8.5 billion money manager that specializes in income-producing stocks. Most energy MLP companies don’t make their money based on the price of oil or gas. Instead, they act more like toll-takers. But that mistaken perception could be driving the sell-off, they said.

    “Why so wild in MLP-land?” Miller Howard wrote in a client note this week. “There are many novice investors in MLPs that don’t really know what they are, what they do, or what the long-term story is. They’re just in it for the yield, or following the “hot dot” of excellent performance for the past decade.”

    Miller Howard notes that in the past four years, money in MLP mutual funds rose from $3 billion to $32 billion. “That’s a lot of inexperienced investors,” they wrote.

    When it comes to the sharp drop in oil prices, here’s what Miller Howard has to say about how MLPs make money:

    “Most contracts are very long term, in any event; a temporary change in oil price—or even gas price—has no effect on these sources of revenue.”

    "now the country has enough storage for the oil that is being produced, but if the levels continue to jump we will not have the proper storage or refining capacity to handle the oil". As per MMP ceo last week with Cramer.
    What's the solution: Increase storage. What am I missing here?

    • If a unitholder dies and the units pass to his heirs, the basis is reset to the fair market value of the units on the date of death, and the prior distributions are not taxed.

    RBC Capital Markets today raises its price targets for all the companies in the Kinder Morgan complex in the wake of the deal that wraps them all up under the Kinder Morgan Inc. (KMI) ticker. Here’s RBC’s breakdown:
    RBC ups its KMI price target to $45 from $40 (it’s currently trading at $41.31 Tuesday)
    RBC ups its Kinder Morgan Energy Partners, L.P. (KMP) target to $109 from $83 (currently $98.24)
    RBC ups its Kinder Morgan Management, LLC (KMR) target to $112 from $83 (currently $100.25)
    RBC ups its El Paso Pipeline Partners, L.P. (EPB) target to $47 from $35 (currently $42.46)

    RBC says it’s not making changes to any of its other estimates for any of the four, and the change in the KMI target price is the driver for the other three changes and assumes a target yield of 4.1%. From RBC

    Kinder Morgan Energy Partners L.P’s (KMP) board of directors are under scrutiny for possible breaches of fiduciary duty and other violations of state law related to sale of the partnership to Kinder Morgan Inc. (KMI).

    Levi & Korsinsky, a national firm, is investigating the matter. It is looking into whether Kinder Morgan’s board violated fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to effectively shop the partnership before agreeing to enter into this transaction. It is also examining whether KMI is underpaying for Kinder Morgan shares.
    I'm holding onto my KMP shares for now.

    I would prefer to hold but cringe of the tax burden for a short seller.

    MLPs trade in units rather than shares. Holders of Kinder Morgan Partners and El Paso will have the option of taking cash or KMI shares in return for their units, according to the statement. The transactions are comprised of $40 billion in parent company equity, $4 billion in cash and $27 billion in assumed debt, according to the presentation.

    Kinder plans to raise its 12-month dividend by 16 percent next year to $2 a share and to raise the payouts by 10 percent annually through the end of the decade.
