AMLP seeks to replicate a benchmark that offers exposure to MLPs that each earn at least 50% of EBITDA from assets that are not directly exposed to changes in commodity prices. 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. AMLP holds all of its assets in domestic equities, offering a pure play on the U.S. MLP sector. Investors looking for steady and strong yields should give this particular product a closer look.
