Energy Companies With Safe(er) Yields?

Looking for a big dividend yield but not the risk of BP ? You might want to check out this trade.

According to Raymond James analyst Darren Horowitz there are stocks in the energy space that could still generate steady income - master limited partnerships.

First things first – what’s a master limited partnership?

Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs) are unique investments that combine the tax benefits of a limited partnership (LP) with the liquidity of common stock, according to the website Investopedia.
An MLP has a partnership structure but issues investment units that trade on an exchange like common stock.

In order to qualify, a firm must earn 90% of its income through activities or interest and dividend payments relating to natural resources, commodities or real estate.

Sounds too good to be true - is there a catch?

Sort of.

In an MLP, instead of paying a corporate income tax, the tax liability of the entity is passed on to its unitholders. Once a year, each investor receives a K-1 statement (similar to a 1099-DIV form) detailing his or her share of the partnership's net income, which is then taxed at the investor's individual tax rate – again according to the website Investopedia.
Now what’s the trade?

Darren Horowitz brings the desk three of his favorite names in the space. They are Enterprise Products L.P., Plains All American L.P. and Williams Partners L.P. , .
