Just Passing Through

By Elliott H. Gue on Oct. 12, 2012

With 47 fund products offering one-stop exposure to energy-focused master limited partnerships (MLP), it’s safe to say that the market has caught on to the appeal of this security class: high yields and low taxes.

But investors’ desperation to find above-average yields in a low-yield world has bid up the prices of many high-quality MLPs to frothy valuations. Despite the recent rally in stocks, the halting US economic recovery and ongoing concerns about the EU’s still-unresolved sovereign-debt crisis suggest that the market hasn’t suffered its last growth scare.

Investors should maintain their discipline when the stock market rallies and take some profits in names that trade above our buy targets. Save your dry powder to lock in above-average yields on popular midstream MLPs during the inevitable pullback.

For investors wondering which MLPs they should buy now, the names on our Focus List offer the best combination of value and potential upside.
