After the recession and during the Fed’s prolonged zero-interest-rate policy days, investors looking for income had to look outside their comfort zones. Owning 10-year Treasury bonds and CDs wasn’t going to cut it in the low-rate environment. To that end, many investors added a lot of different asset classes and sectors to try and get the yield they needed. Master limited partnerships (MLPs) were one of the chief asset classes many income-starved investors were attracted to.

However, MLP’s appeal suddenly sank as oil prices crashed back in 2015 and they haven’t really come back to their former glory days.

And they may never will.

Thanks to a variety of factors – from regulation to simplification efforts – many MLPs are going the way of the dodo. That has many income investors wondering if the sector is still a viable place for their investment dollars.

You can find a list of all MLPs listed on Dividend.com here.
