What is the easiest way of investing in MLPs? Is a minimum investment required? If so, what is that amount? Can one invest via auto payroll withdrawals?
Annette A. Barry on 2012-10-12 15:02:08
I thing via ETNs or ETFs as most report income on a 1099 rather than K-1s. They are available through your stockbroker.

I suggest adding LNCO, KMR and KMI to the list of Associations. Also, KMP issues a K-1 to unit holders.
