In the following video segment, Motley Fool energy analysts Joel South and Taylor Muckerman take a deep dive into master limited partnerships, or MLPs. They discuss what an MLP is and how companies in the energy sector can use them to create tax-deferred cash flows leading to high-yield investments. In addition, this video discusses the MLP space and discusses whether they are still solid investments in 2013. With takeaway capacity in short supply in shale plays throughout North America, MLPs should see increasing distribution growth going forward.
