10 MLPs with Impressive Dividend YieldsIn the current economic climate investors have sought any and all potential investment opportunities to see attractive yields and returns. One such asset class includes Master Limited Partnerships, otherwise known as MLPs, which have been provided attractive dividend yields throughout the years [for more MLP news and analysis subscribe to our free newsletter].

MLPs generally generate cash flow by transporting, storing, and producing energy commodities such as petroleum and natural gas products throughout the United States. However, these institutions are not as vulnerable to the ups and downs in oil and other commodity prices that many usually suspect. Rather, these companies generate their revenues through fee-based operations that are generally not affected by the fluctuation of commodity prices.

Shares of MLPs are liquid assets that trade on a stock exchange just like other publicly owned companies. A benefit to owning shares of a MLP is that the entity is contractually required to pay out dividends to its partners, otherwise known as shareholders. However, owning shares of a MLP can result in complicated tax implications if an investor is not thoroughly knowledgeable in the area.

Because MLPs are obligated to distribute dividends to shareholders, they typically have attractive dividend yields. In a low-rate and uncertain economic climate, these high dividend yields from MLPs can result in stable income that makes MLP investing an alluring alternative from other assets and securities.

Outlined below are ten high dividend yielding MLPs. All statistics are as of November 26, 2012.
