    Analysis prepared by Nathan Yates, Research Associate

    Key take-aways from Williams Companies investor day:

    U.S. natural gas market - see 3% supply growth, 2% demand growth to 2030. Goal to be #1 or #2 North American gas infrastructure developer.

    Northeastern shale plays (Marcellus, Utica) - volumes up 64% in 2013; expect to double by '16 to 4 Bcf/d.

    Geismar update - #2 cash-generating facility offline since 2013.06.13 due to explosion but repairs 93% complete.

    NGL Supply Growing - requires movement from source of production to demand centers on the Gulf Coast and in the industrial Midwest/Northeast. This has driven a capital spending ramp….

    Capital spending - which is peaking in 2014.

    Entity (Ticker)




    Williams Companies (NYSE:WMB)




    Williams MLP (NYSE:WPZ)




    Access Midstream JV (NYSE:ACMP)








    Change - midpoint




    Industrial company impact: These companies may face (manageable) headwinds in their midstream businesses beginning in 2015 - AME, ABB, HON, EMR.

    As capacity additions ramp and capital spending falls shareholders and unit holders benefit….

    Dividends - parent company distributions will grow faster than MLP through '16.

    - Williams Companies (WMB) - expect 20% per annum through 2016. High coverage.

    - Williams MLP (WPZ) - distributions up 6% in 2014-15 with 4.5% growth in 2016.

    - Access Midstream (ACMP) - paid $1.94 in '13; see 178% growth to '16 implies $5.39.

    We think investors who care about growing dividends should give ACMP a look. The units closed at $59.04 today and assuming even a 5% dividend yield in '16 could trade to $105+ over the next 2-3 years.

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.

  • $UTX, $GE, $HON - China establishing engine manufacturer eliminates up to 20% of global market. Street will ignore but impact is real.

  • $GE, $ELUXB - DOJ suit to block deal. Normally I would chalk this up to leftist administration. Given Alstom hold up perhaps....payback?

  • $GE - happy the finance assets are going, but Alstom deal is SERIOUSLY at risk. Market doesn't care yet. But it should. HOLD maintained.
