- DCP Midstream Partners (DPM -2.4%) is downgraded to Sell from Neutral with a $31 price target, cut from $41, at UBS on the back of the firm's natural gas liquids pricing revision, which prompted a similar downgrade of Chesapeake Energy.
- UBS expects weakness in propane/butane to continue in the near term before staging a recovery in Q4, and thus will continue to pressure DPM's credit profile.
- The firm lowers its 2015, 2016 and 2017 EBITDA estimates to a respective $629M, $621M and $692M from $641M, $665M and $744M to reflect the impact of changes to its forecasts and acknowledge that further slowdowns in drilling activity could pressure volumes.

- Sandell Asset Management is urging Spectra Energy (SE +0.3%) to present to the market a road map for value creation by the end of the year, Reuters reports.
- One way to unlock shareholder value, the activist investor says, is to swap its 50% interest in DCP Midstream Partners (DPM -0.2%) for equity in Phillips 66's MLP (PSXP +3%) in a deal that could improve the valuation of both companies.
- Sandell reportedly said in an Oct. 2 letter that it believes DCP's assets are a better fit with Phillips 66 Partners; it had pressed SE for changes in a June letter, when it said it believes SE is undervalued and should trade at ~$48//share.

- Spectra Energy (SE -1.6%) rejects calls from activist shareholder Sandell to sell or spin off its western Canadian pipelines or its stake in DCP Midstream (DPM); selling shares in the Canadian unit would create tax problems and DCP’s rising cash flow will boost SE’s stock price, CEO Greg Ebel says.
- Sandell said last month it considered a sale of assets to the partnership - which SE valued today at ~$9.68B - about a third of its plan for Spectra.
