What is MLPR?
The ETRACS Quarterly Pay 1.5x Leveraged Alerian MLP Index ETN is designed to provide 1.5 times leveraged long exposure to the compounded quarterly performance of the Alerian MLP Index, less financing costs and tracking fees, and may pay a variable quarterly coupon linked to the leveraged cash distributions associated with the underlying Master Limited Partnership index constituents. The Alerian MLP Index measures the composite performance of energy master limited partnerships ( MLPs ), and is calculated by S&P Dow Jones Indices using a capped, float-adjusted, capitalization-weighted methodology. The MLPs included in the Index earn the majority of their cash flow from qualifying activities involving energy commodities, which include pipeline transportation, gathering and processing, storage, production and mining, marketing, marine transportation, services, catalytic conversion, mineral interest, refining, regasification and other related activities.
