Zamansky LLC Investigates Investor Losses From Oil, Gas & Energy Stocks, MLPs And Funds For Unsuitability And Excessive Risk

December 15, 2015 Active Cases & Investigations

New York, New York: Zamansky LLC announces that it is investigating investor losses from oil, gas and energy stocks, master limited partnerships (“MLPs”) and funds, including those listed below. Over the last year, these investments have fallen 50% and more, and many are cutting their distributions to investors so that they are no longer high-yield, income investments.   Many income-seeking investors, particularly retirees, were advised by their brokers and financial advisors to invest in these stocks and funds because there were supposedly safe and secure income-generating investments, similar to bonds, with modest risk. Many investors were told these were “must-own” investments, or that there was little-to-no downside risk because the companies’ business models generated steady cash flow that was not liked to volatile oil prices.

According to Jake Zamansky, stock broker fraud attorney, these oil and gas energy stocks, MLPs and funds are risky and speculative investments that were not suitable or appropriate for conservative or even some moderate investors. No retiree or other conservative investor who needed to protect their principal should have invested in these stocks and funds, he says. Zamansky believes that any investor with losses who believes that these stocks or funds are not suitable for them or too risky for them should have their investments reviewed by a professional.
