- Energy MLPs enjoyed a lift this week (at least until yesterday) following news of the Enbridge-Spectra merger, particularly those lacking sponsorship by producers that may be targets for consolidation.
- Credit Suisse sees logical players to be involved in combinations to secure access to opportunities and capital including ETE/ETP, EPD, MMP, PAA/PAGP, OKE/OKS, WPZ, PSX/PSXP, MPC/MPLX, TRGP, NS/NSH, GEL and TEP/TEGP.
- FBR Capital says MLP valuations have improved ~45% from lows reached early this year, and expects macro trends to lift the sector; the firm thinks CAPL could enjoy double-digit growth for nearly seven years, and says MMLP is another notable outperformer whose valuation reflects more than enough discount for a distribution cut (which the firm is forecasting) - it also likes ENLK, EEP, TLP, SRLP, USAC, WLKP and USDP,
- RBC notes favorable sentiment in the MLP realm, highlighting attractive valuations particularly at ETP, BWP and AMID, and sees dropdown stories - out of favor YTD - such as VLP and SHLX offering visible growth that can support the stocks over the next 12 months.

- Noting that many MLPs have climbed after announcing distribution reductions this year, Baird analysts compile a list of 14 10%-plus yielding MLPs they believe could enjoy a quick price boost after announcing a cut.
- The Baird group does not necessarily recommend investors buy all the MLPs on the list, but "ample market evidence exists a) to justify a cut, and b) to believe it will drive short run returns, though not without material implications to investors’ cash flow."
- The 14 MLPs: AMID, ARCX, CCLP, CELP, CEQP, EEP, ENBL, ETP, JPEP, MEP, MMLP, SMLP, USAC, USDP

- American Midstream Partners (NYSE:AMID) closed 22% higher today after announcing yesterday that it cut its distribution by 13% and received $225M in dropdown assets and new acquisitions, which should increase cash flows in the future.
- Wunderlich MLP analyst Jeff Birnbaum says the news was positive and positions AMID to potentially attract new capital; the firm maintains its Hold rating but raises its price target to $11 from $6.50, at which AMID offers a 15% current yield.
- Birnbaum had downgraded AMID in January in anticipation of a distribution cut, but the recent trend seems to reward such cuts as a far better outcome than a total suspension.
