The Morgan Stanley Cushing MLP High Income Index ETN is an exchange-traded note issued by Morgan Stanley. The ETN due 3/21/2031 are senior, unsecured debt securities issued by Morgan Stanley and is part of the Series F, Global Medium-Term Notes program. The Notes are based on the performance of the underlying index, the Cushing MLP High Income Index.
The Cushing MLP High Income Index is a criteria-weighted index tracking the performance of 30 Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs) that hold energy infrastructure and related shipping assets in North America. An MLP is a limited partnership which trades publicly on an exchange and thus, provides not only the tax benefits of a limited partnership, but also the liquidity of publicly traded securities. Examples of energy MLPs include Legacy Reserves LP, Hi-Crush Partners LP, Foresight Energy LP, Emerge Energy LP, and Enable Midstream Partners.
The COVID-19 global pandemic has caused securities markets to tank. Unfortunately for investors, MLPY is reportedly down -64.71% in the past 3 months. Various banks are calling mandatory redemptions of certain ETNs and have frozen the trading of others, causing investors huge losses.
