    • Columbia Pipeline Group (CPGX +5.9%) has surged today following TransCanada's (TRP -1.2%) $25.50/share takeover offer - no surprise there - but Columbia Pipeline Partners (CPPL -18.5%), CPGX's MLP, is trading nearly 20% lower.
    • TRP said little about its plans for the MLP except that it would become the new general partner and own 46% of the units; TRP already has its own MLP - TC Pipeline (TCP -2.2%) - so its course for the Columbia partnership lacks clarity.
    • Investors may be worried that TRP will buy up the MLP cheaply, leaving them on the hook for capital gains taxes that would cut into their returns, Hennessy Gas Utility Fund manager Skip Aylesworth tells Bloomberg.
    • Barclays downgrades CPPL to Equal Weight from Overweight with a $15 price target, forecasting slower growth in the MLP’s investor payout under TRP’s control.
