Analyst Report

This ETF offers exposure to MLPs, a corner of the domestic energy market that has the potential to deliver significant distributions with a relatively low level of overall volatility. Because MLPs are often not included in significant weightings in broad-based equity funds, adding products such as YMLP to your portfolio can be a way to bring potential diversification benefits while also enhancing the current returns from the equity side of the portfolio. MLPs generally derive revenue from storage and transfer of energy commodities, but prices are not overly sensitive to spot oil and gas prices. Instead, income to this asset class is relatively stable, and in order to achieve tax benefits MLPs must pay out almost all of their current income. That results in a relatively attractive distribution yield for YMLP. YMLP is unique from most other offerings in the MLPs ETFdb Category in that it is an ETF as opposed to an ETN (most of the tools for accessing this asset class are exchange-traded notes). The ETF structure in this case brings some potential disadvantages; YMLP must be structured as a C corp in order to hold MLPs, which forces it to accrue a tax liability when the underlying securities increase in value. That tax obligation is avoided with ETNs, which could make that structure favorable when held in taxable accounts or when the underlying securities are appreciating in value. MLPI and AMJ are popular ETN options for accessing MLPs. For those who prefer to avoid the credit risk associated with ETNs, AMLP is the other ETF option out there for accessing MLPs.
