Alerian MLP Makes Tax Payment, Raises Expense Ratio
"Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses increased from 0.85% to 1.40%, resulting from “Other Expenses” climbing by 0.55% due to past tax liabilities."
"Since inception, AMLP has provided shareholders with only 60% of the underlying index’s return. The fund has posted a 13.0% annual return versus 21.5% for the underlying index. This represents an effective 8.5% per year in costs to shareholders, yet AMLP prefers to call it a tracking error. This is about 6x the amount of the newly revised 1.40% expense ratio."
