While MLPs have performed quite well over the past six to seven weeks, we continue to find MLP valuations quite compelling. Currently, MLPs have an average yield of 6.1% and a distribution growth forecasted at 7% over the next year. With yield plus growth or y plus g prospects in the low double digits, we think MLPs compared very favorable relative to other equity investment alternative.Relative to other income alternatives, MLPs are trading at higher than normal yield. The 10-year U.S. Treasury is trading at a yield of 1.5% and the yield spread to MLP is 460 basis points. This compares to the historical average closer to 220 basis points.
