  • Is This MLP is a Good Buy for Income Seekers?

    By siraj sarwar - August 14, 2013 | Tickers: ENB, EPD, KMP

    Shares of master limited partnership (MLP) stocks can be some of the strongest dividend-paying securities available to investors. These securities typically feature a high level of income while offering investors some attractive tax advantages. Being incorporated as limited partnerships, they do not face double taxation; MLPs are subject to no taxes at the corporate level.

  • This Does Nothing For The Limited Partners

    By Reuben Brewer - August 13, 2013 | Tickers: EPD, KMP, OKS, OKE

    ONEOK (NYSE: OKE) is spinning off its natural gas utility assets to become just the general partner (GP) of limited partnership ONEOK Partners (NYSE: OKS). That's good for ONEOK shareholders, but doesn't do much to help ONEOK Partners unit holders.

    Lots of Partners

    Limited partnerships (LPs) usually have general partners (GPs) that run them. The GP handles the day to day tasks, while the limited partners put up more »

  • Earn Great Income With Upside Potential

    By Shmulik Karpf - August 5, 2013 | Tickers: EPD, KMR, OKS

    Note: This article has been amended to correct Enterprise Products Partners dividend yield.

    A 0% interest rate environment has created a crowd of hungry-for-yield investors. With rates so low, you have two options -- either stash your money in CDs earning close to nothing, or invest in highly speculative investments. Well, now there's also a third way: invest your money in financial vehicles called MLPs.

  • One Small Pipeline Company Beating Larger Rivals

    By Robert Zimmerman - August 2, 2013 | Tickers: EPD, GEL, PAA

    They say good things come in small packages. Regarding US oil pipeline companies, this could very well be true. While large midstream companies like Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE: EPD) and Plains All American Pipeline (NYSE: PAA) returned great results to their investors, a relatively small company has beaten both in terms of capital gains and distribution growth.

    To be sure, Enterprise and Plains boast attractive returns. According to the chart more »

  • 3 Energy MLPs for Solid Gains

    By Ishtiaq Ahmed - July 29, 2013 | Tickers: ETP, EPD, KMP

    High yielding master limited partnerships are some of the most attractive investments for dividend investors. These partnerships pay out heavy cash distributions and attract investors who want to have a regular stream of income. However, the prospect of regular income is not the sole characteristic of these MLPs. Some of these partnerships have shown considerable price appreciation.

  • Three Ways to Profit From Colorado Oil

    By Robert Zimmerman - July 29, 2013 | Tickers: APC, EPD, NBL

    While the Bakken and Eagle Ford shale oil plays understandably attract the spotlight in the world of new oil production, a lesser known play in Colorado may soon make its presence felt. The Niobrara in northeastern Colorado (see map below) may contain more than 7 billion barrels of recoverable oil. Let’s look at three companies investing in this play.

  • Genesis Undertakes Horizontal Expansion

    By Awais Iqbal - July 24, 2013 | Tickers: EPD, GEL, HOS

    Acquisition seems to be becoming the norm in the financial world to achieve quicker growth. It is a costly way to expand. But buying a business that is ongoing reduces risk of failure .

    Genesis Energy LP (NYSE: GEL) recently took over the downstream transportation assets of Hornbeck Offshore Services (NYSE: HOS) in order to enlarge the extent of its marine business operations.

  • History Says This Stock Will Soar

    By Justin Carley - July 24, 2013 | Tickers: EPD, MPLX, PSXP

    The IPO I have been waiting for has finally arrived. I first drew attention to it in mid-May when I recommended investors build cash and wait. The market correction I hinted at did happen, but was minuscule, and now the S&P 500 resides about 5% higher. MLPs haven’t fared as well and remain unchanged on a total return basis, but got whip-sawed with the volatile movements in the more »

  • Pipelines Still Have Growth Ahead

    By Reuben Brewer - July 23, 2013 | Tickers: EPD, KMP, KMR, TRP

    The early July explosion of train cars carrying crude oil in Canada quickly turned into a disaster. It also exposed the risks of the increasing use of trains to transport oil. Although pipelines have their own risks, the fallout from this event will help support growth at pipeline giants like Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE: EPD), Kinder Morgan (NYSE: KMP), and TransCanada (NYSE: TRP).

  • Two Energy Companies to Consider and One to Avoid

    By Robert Zimmerman - July 22, 2013 | Tickers: EROC, EPD, PWE

    For years now, US and Canadian oil and natural gas production not only helped reduce oil imports to the US, but also rewarded their investors. For all the headlines trumpeting increased production, not all energy companies benefit shareholders. Let’s look at three energy companies with different risk and reward profiles.

    By Ryan Guenette - July 2, 2013 | Tickers: ENB, EPD, KMP, OKS, TRP

    A trailblazing North American energy transportation and distribution company, Enbridge (NYSE: ENB), has been trounced year to date, declining 4.99% compared to the 12.42% return offered by the blue chip average.

  • Which of These MLPs Is a Bargain?

    By Sarfaraz Khan - July 2, 2013 | Tickers: AMLP, EPD, WES

    The midstream arm of Anadarko Petroleum, Western Gas Partners (NYSE: WES) and midstream energy firm Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE: EPD) have formed a joint venture for two natural gas liquid, or NGL, fraction trains. Both of these energy infrastructure firms will become bigger and better in the coming years on the back of the U.S. oil and gas boom. Although I am bullish on these two firms, Enterprise Products more »

  • 3 Companies With High Dividend Payout Ratios You Don’t Want to Miss

    By Shweta Dubey - June 26, 2013 | Tickers: T, EPD, VZ, WES

    Dividend payments, a way to distribute cash to the shareholders, indicates the strength of a company's free cash flow position. Historically, high dividend-paying stocks have outperformed the overall stock market in times of uncertainty. In the U.S, high-dividend paying stocks have provided an additional return of almost 5% annually as compared to stocks paying no dividend.

    In this article, I have analyzed three companies that had paid higher more »

  • Three MLPs for a Safe Retirement Portfolio

    By siraj sarwar - June 22, 2013 | Tickers: BBEP, EPD, PAA

    The energy sector has not been immune to the economy’s downturn, but it still has areas of growth that show considerable promise. In this sector, there are still plenty of opportunities for investment and income. In this piece, I pick a few promising MLPs from the energy sector. These MLPs offer regularly increasing distributions. These are Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE: EPD), BreitBurn Energy Partners (NASDAQ: BBEP) and Plains All more »

  • Better Metrics for Evaluating MLP Distributions

    By Karin Hernandez - June 21, 2013 | Tickers: EPD, PAA, SXL

    Even with the recent uptick in long-term bond prices, yields are still puny, and income investors are hard-pressed to find quality companies that are even keeping up with the rate of inflation, let alone generating income above that level.

    The S&P 500 has generated a dividend yield of around 2% over the last decade, and it doesn’t look like that will be increasing any time soon.

    However, it more »

  • The 4% Withdrawal Rule Versus Required Minimum Distributions, Part Two

    By Karin Hernandez - June 13, 2013 | Tickers: EPD, PAA, SXL

    Please be sure to read Part One before you read this part. In it, I discuss the very real possibility that a retiree, if his money is invested in a tax-deferred account such as a traditional IRA  or a 401(k), may be forced to withdraw more from his account than the recommended 4%.

     So you find yourself in the somewhat enviable position of being required to withdraw more annually more »

  • 3 High Yielding MLPs That Offer Significant Upside

    By Piyush Arora - June 13, 2013 | Tickers: EEP, EPD, KMP

    It’s a good strategy to invest in income growth companies, sit back, and reap the rewards. But to beat inflation, investing in high yielding, yet stable companies is important. And this is exactly where companies with an MLP (Master Liability Partnerships) status roll in.

    MLPs are generally oil and gas companies that generate consistent cash flows. They distribute the bulk of their cash generated and don’t have to more »

  • Jim Cramer: Invest Like the Ridiculously Rich in High-Yielding Stocks

    By Karin Hernandez - June 5, 2013 | Tickers: EPD, HTA, KMP, WPZ

    Two weeks ago, when commenting on both the newest Powerball millionaire ($590 million, still unclaimed as of this writing) and David Karp’s sale of Tumblr to Yahoo!, Jim Cramer noted that when one has that kind of money, investment goals can be substantially different than those for ordinary people.

    People who are that rich don’t need to invest for growth – merely for preservation. They don’t need to more »
