Deep Dive: Veteran investor sees ‘giant opportunity’ in natural gas partnerships

Mark J. Grant, the new chief global strategist at B. Riley/FBR/Wunderlich Securities, sees a “giant opportunity” for income-seeking investors in natural gas partnerships.

Grant, in an interview Jan. 10, revealed his five favorite plays in the industry — all closed-end funds, whose yields are as high as 13.8%. He also described a conservative income-focused strategy. Grant joined the investment manager this week after spending 43 years at other financial firms, including Hilltop Securities.

Last March, I went out on a limb and said closed-end funds investing in energy pipeline partnerships (also called MLPs, or master limited partnerships) were “great places to park your money,” because of their discounted prices and high dividend yields.
