Column: MLP Acrophobia

It’s been a busy week, hence the lack of posts.  I’m in Austin after a full day of house hunting, more on my pending move from Boston to Austin later.

In other news, I’ll be writing a weekly column for equities.com on MLPs.  I plan to publish every Thursday there, and will continue my weekend posts here.  My first column, released today, was a review of where the MLP Index is and how many all-time highs have been reached over the years.

Excerpt:

In 2012 to date, the MLP Index has closed at all-time highs 6 times, and 12 times for the total return version of the index (including the distributions).  At the current rate, the MLP Index are on pace for 50 closes at new all-time highs this year (100 for the total return version of the index).  Each of those would be close to the record for all-time high days in a single year.  The chart below shows the number of days in each of the last 16 years that the MLP Index closed at all-time highs.

Weekly post coming tomorrow night.  Thanks as always for reading.
