|About: USA Compression Partners, LP (USAC)|By:, SA News Editor

USA Compression Partners (USAC +3.5%) — which yesterday reported Q2 results and announced the acquisition of $183M in compression assets — is downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Goldman.

Price target raised to $25 from $22.

Growth potential is "group-average," analyst Ted Durbin says, adding that although GS likes USAC's "exposure to shale-driven infrastructure growth via fee-based cash flows with no commodity risk," the shares are probably fully valued.
