I am forecasting that the energy midstream infrastructure sector will again be a growth sector in 2017 and there is lots of upside potential in the group, suggests Tim Plaehn, editor of The Dividend Hunter.
Instead of trying to pick one stock in the group, I am recommending one of the more aggressive MLP focused exchange-traded funds — InfraCap MLP ETF (AMZA).
The fund owns the same MLPs as the ones tracked by the Alerian MLP Infrastructure Index, with the following possible enhancements:
* The fund manager can weight individual MLPs holdings different than the index.
* AMZA will weight these same MLPs based on the return potential from the management team’s proprietary algorithm.
* The fund can own the publicly traded general partner companies of the index component MLPs.
* The fund can sell call options (covered call strategy) to generate extra cash income from the portfolio.
