- U.S. midstream MLPs rallied today following the news that MarkWest Energy (NYSE:MWE) was acquired by MPLX (NYSE:MPLX), as the deal is seen as a validation of the long-term demand potential for U.S. natural gas liquids infrastructure despite current depressed prices.
- Among today's gainers in the group: GEL +3.7%, DPM +3.3%, OKS +2.6%, NGLS +2.5%.
- SunTrust's Tristan Richardson believes the deal is particularly bullish for Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE:EPD), since speaks to the long term potential for the NGL market and the buildout of NGL infrastructure to new sources of market demand, where EPD is a leader with significant organic growth opportunities.
- MPLX fell 14.5% today, as investors worry that adding a nat gas company to MPLX, which had been growing rapidly, could hurt growth and add more volatility to earnings; however, many analysts believe the deal is a safe bet for MPLX because the company is diversifying its sources of income to help it survive the ups and downs of the commodity cycles.
