In March, bmw201030 tapped Enterprise as a masterful way to make some income:

I'm choosing outperform here based on my belief that natural gas will serve as part of our energy infrastructure in the US for years to come. And the steady income stream from a [Master Limited Partnership]. I'm hoping this will help cushion my CAPS portfolio as the economy and stock market continue to tank.

In a pitch from three days ago, KyrieLoon expands on the stock as a natural selection:

Enterprise Products Partners is up to its elbows in natural gas and offers a range of processing, transportation and storage services.
