ETY has been a disappointing and poor investment for long time share holders. I have been in ETY for 4 years and have seen a negative price decline since 2010. You can do much better in better managed funds like HNW as an example.
Arbtrdr, almost forgot about the depreciation in all the chaos yesterday! Wasn't able to buy in at below $13 but in the mid 14's. I remember LINE last July at $22 and BBEP at $14 and wished I had the balls back then to 3x down! BWP isn't any these guys but I think it will recover in 2 years or so. Wish I had your ZERO basis in EPD, you have a lifelong money machine there!
Hang in there. Been with BWP 7 years and should have sold at $30 a few months back too! They still have physical assets in place and only 46 million out of 220 million traded yesterday. I stepped up, bit the bullet , and doubled down on my holdings to average in about $20/share. I can wait a few years even with the lousy distribution and may even break even someday?
EPD is my core holdings and my cap gains are really through the roof over the past 5 years. I almost want to cash out here but the cap gain taxes would be a #$%$ and loosing a 7.5% annual distribution is tough to swallow! GLTA
