Analyst Report

This product offers exposure to an index which tracks the infrastructure component of the natural gas industry. MLPs have attracted significant interest for two primary reasons: (1) required quarterly distributions provide a steady stream of current income, and (2) because they are partnerships, MLPs avoid corporate income taxes at both the federal and state level; the tax liability is passed through to the individual partners. By generating at least 90% of income from natural resource-based activities such as transportation and storage, an entity can qualify as an MLP and not be taxed as a corporation. So the IRS treats shareholders of an MLP as partners, making the MLP itself a pass-through entity. That means that taxes are avoided at the corporate level, and investors avoid the double taxation of income. MLPG is a different kind of MLP ETP in that it offers exposure exclusively to natural gas, giving investors a hyper-targeted ticker to this particular asset class.
