More Thoughts on the Kinder Morgan Mega-Deal and Its Implications

Rather than regarding Kinder Morgan Inc.’s consolidation of its associated limited partnerships as a referendum on the MLP structure or the end of an era, investors should regard this move as a fresh start for the midstream giant--an opportunity to reshape itself to meet the demands of the marketplace and competitive environment.

Enterprise Products Partners LP: Great Company, Not a Great Stock

Enterprise Products Partners LP boasts one of the strongest balance sheets and growth prospects in the MLP universe. However, a frothy valuation means that investors should stand aside and wait for a pullback before adding to or establishing a position in the name.

Three Forthcoming MLP IPOs to Buy

In addition to the seven energy-related MLPs that have completed their initial public offerings thus far in 2014, eight prospective publicly traded partnerships have filed their initial registration statements with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Three of these names stand out as good bets for investors.

PBF Logistics LP: Following a Well-Worn Path

With PBF Logistics LP’s (NYSE: PBFX) initial public offering, refiner PBF Energy (NYSE: PBF) followed in the footsteps of first mover HollyFrontier Corp (NYSE: HFC) and became the latest independent refiner to spin off its storage and transportation assets as a MLP.

Enable Midstream Partners LP: Large and in Charge

Despite completing its initial public offering in April 2014, Enable Midstream Partners LP (NYSE: ENBL) already boasts $11 billion in total assets, making the master limited partnership (MLP) one of the largest midstream names in our MLP Ratings. The size and diversity of the partnership's asset base distinguishes it from the other MLPs that have completed their IPOs this year. 

Foresight Energy LP: On The Sidelines Until Export Market Improves

Foresight Energy Partners is the first coal producer to go public as an MLP since the inauspicious debuts of Oxford Resource Partners LP (NYSE: OXF) and Rhino Resource Partners LP (NYSE: RNO) in fall 2012. We dig into whether this newly listed MLP is up to snuff.
