A correction was performed to the table in this article October 29, 2015, at 7:20pm. How to interpret the changes: In this illustrative example that includes both growth capital spending and a marginal cost of capital of 10%, holders of MLPs will have to wait years before the intrinsic value of the security catches up to the present market price (comparison shown in orange). Said differently, units in this example are significantly overpriced in today’s market.
