MLP ETFs

Most of these ETFs invest in master limited partnerships (MLPs), which are entities that focus on chemicals, metals, and oil & gas. MLPs are also known for passing along a very high percentage of earnings to shareholders and for their tax advantages. For years, MLPs had performed admirably for conservative investors looking to generate a steady income stream. In the past year however, the climate for MLPs has gotten a bit more cloudy. With this, we feel this category is better suited for moderate investors willing to accept some of the current uncertainty surrounding the group.
