Oil and gas seemed like an untouchable investment at one point, but that mask only hid its risky nature.  Unfortunately, many brokers and broker-dealers got caught up in oil and gas excitement and unsuitably recommended all sorts of oil- and gas-related investments, such as master limited partnerships (MLPs), stocks, and private placements, to its customers.  Often times, they also overconcentrated their customers’ portfolios, including our client’s.
