MASTER LIMITED PARTNERSHIP – MORE GOING ON THAN OIL PRICE
Master limited partnerships (MLP) appear to be a natural way to invest
in the changing energy landscape. MLPs are exclusively focused on energy
infrastructure in the United States and Canada. North American energy production
has become a dominant factor in the price of oil and in the North American drive
to be energy independent. Yet, the pricing and performance of MLPs can be
complicated, influenced by systemic factors, such as the prices of oil and gas,
interest rates, and movement in the equity markets. MLPs are also influenced
by the degree of success of each individual partnership, in the same way that
traditional stocks’ performances are determined by both market and individual
factors. Despite recent performance, we believe that the sector may still represent
a good long-term investment option to potentially profit from increased North
American energy production.
