Did you Lose Money in Oil Master Limited Partnerships?

Many investors are now going after what seems to be "safe" investments in MLPs (Master Limited Partnerships) that invest in the delivery and distribution of oil and gas production. These include pipelines, crude oil storage, refined product storage, exploration and production of oil or gas, and coal production.

MLPs have many of the same liquid trading characteristics as common stocks. But MLPs are in fact very different from common stocks. MLP's are "pass through" investments--they pass through the income to the investor. The MLP does not pay taxes at the company level. Instead the MLP passes the income on to the investor and the investor pays the income taxes. This allows the investor to receive a larger distribution. The distribution between the general partners and limited partners is in the contract.

The huge drop in the price of oil recently have made investors aware that MLPs are not as "safe" as they initially thought. Many of these so-called "safe investments" recommended by brokers and financial advisors have collapsed. With oil near $50 per barrel and possibly could still go lower, some investors in the MLPs are down as much as 50-75%.

Investors need to know the risk, so they can understand the return.  Lose Money In Oil MLP's? Recover Investment Losses, Call Soreide Law Group.
