Kevin McCarthy, the world’s best- performing energy fund manager in the past year, stared at the tangle of tax-exempt partnerships and corporate parents that drive the U.S. oil and gas pipeline business and kept his cool.

That was in 2010, when the Kayne Anderson Capital Partners LP manager in Houston said he found a way to profit from the mess: He realized the most undervalued of the bunch were the companies managing the partnerships, the so-called general partners, especially since they were positioned to earn escalating shares of cash flow as pipeline assets expanded.

McCarthy’s Midstream/Energy Fund Inc. (KMF) made 31 percent in the last 12 months, the best return of 259 energy funds with more than $100 million worldwide, data compiled by Bloomberg show. His top investments are

Very interesting article is it not. Kind of make one want to put a few dollars into a mutual fund or ETFs that invest in pipeline companies does it not. If one is luck enough to have a 401k that allows a piece of the 401k balance to be "self directed", then this is an investment area one just might want to look into.

When one considers that there is a shortage of pipeline capacity in the US and Canada today to carry Alberta crude, North Dakota Bakken shale crude, Texas Eagle Ford shale crude & natural gas and the Marcellus natural gas production to market, it makes pipeline companies just that much more attractive.

one of few possible places to make money in the foreseeable future, assuming obama and epa don't completely ban fossil fuels in the next four years.

Yes, there is much money to be made with these pipelines. Now, let's get the Keystone Pipeline built. Also a pipeline to move the oil from North Dakota to the refineries would be a good investment.
