MLPX: Investing In Solid Midstream Fundamentals, But Without The High Yield

Published Sat, 05 Oct 2019 14:03:32 -0400 on Seeking Alpha

One of the better ways for income-focused investors to play the energy industry is through midstream companies. This is due to the fact that these companies generally boast stable cash flows that are reasonably well insulated from fluctuations in commodity prices and generally pay out a large percentage of their cash flow to investors in the form of dividends or distributions. This sector has also seen strong growth over the past decade, although the stock prices of these firms has not always reflected that growth. The industry as a whole is likely to continue this growth for at least the next few years and so therefore presents an opportunity for investors seeking both growth and income. It can sometimes be difficult to include midstream companies in a retirement account, though, as many of them are structured as master limited partnerships. In addition, some investors may not want to go through the effort of picking and choosing between the various companies in the sector or may not have enough capital to actually construct a diversified portfolio of these companies. Fortunately, there are some funds available to help investors overcome these hurdles. One of these is the Global X MLP & Energy Infrastructure ETF (MLPX) and it will be the topic of the remainder of this article.
