MLPs are favored by many retail investors because they offer the affordability and liquidity of corporate stocks and bonds combined with the advantages of investing in a partnership. MLPs generally pay investors regular cash distributions, and many offer growth potential as well. There are more than 90 MLPs on the market, with the majority in industries related to energy and natural resources.
In May 2010, the first MLP mutual fund was launched. It has the goal of providing a high level of inflation-protected income through a 7.8 percent distribution yield, which can be higher than alternatives such as REITs and utilities. In August 25, 2010, Alerian, the company that manages the benchmark MLP index (NYSE: AMZ), launched the first MLP exchange traded fund (ETF), the Alerian MLP ETF (NYSE: AMLP).
