Sunoco Inc. (SUN)

  • Thu, Jan. 22, 2:49 PM
    • Sunoco (SUN +1.5%) is resumed with an Equal Weight rating and $54 price target at Barclays, which says SUN benefits from relatively stable cash flows bolstered by long-term fee-based contracts for a significant portion of its business, consistent fuel margins and the support of its Energy Transfer Partners parent.
    • The firm believes SUN is well-positioned to post 12.5% growth from a $4B-$4.5B dropdown inventory, organic capex and third-party acquisitions amid a fragmented end market, but that favorable growth prospects are somewhat reflected in SUN's price.

    • Susser Petroleum Partners' (SUSP +3.3%) price target is raised to $57 from $48 at RBC Capital, which believes SUSP is poised for double-digit distribution growth over the next several years as Energy Transfer Partners' acquisition of SUSP's parent increases the inventory of dropdowns available to SUSP.
    • Greater scale and geographic diversity could better position SUSP to complete accretive third-party acquisitions, the firm says.
    • RBC rates the shares at Outperform.

    • Susser Petroleum Partners (SUSP +2.3%) is upgraded to Outperform from Neutral with a $38 price target, up from $36, at Robert W. Baird, which calls SUSP the "top way to invest in the U.S. energy renaissance."
    • As billions pour into Texas' petrochemical processing industry in the coming years and gasoline pricing succumbs to a robust supply outlook, Baird recommends accumulating units to harness these sound secular domestic energy tailwinds.
    • SUSP again beat quarterly volumetric projections, posting 15% Q4 2013 growth, the firm notes.

    • Susser Petroleum Partners (SUSP +1.9%) is initiated with a Buy rating and a $35 price target at Benchmark, seeing upside potential given SUSP's growth and operating margin opportunities.
    • Given steady profitability and management's consistent execution, the firm believes shares are not trading at their full value.

    Marathon Petroleum (MPC +1.7%) will buy 10 retail gasoline stations from Road Ranger for an undisclosed price, but after this nibble, there’s still the possibility of a main course: Sunoco’s (SUN) 4,900 gas stations. Energy Transfer (ETP), expected to close its $5.3B deal for SUN within a few months, is widely expected to sell the stations and is taking calls from interested buyers.

    Sunoco (SUN +19.6%) continues to lead all S&P gainers after its acquisition by Energy Transfer Partners (ETP +2.9%). ETP is most enamored with SUN's stakes in Sunoco Logistics (SXL -1.3%) and its network of refined product pipelines, terminals and trucks; ETP is paying plenty for the general partner interest in SXL, but it's a bargain vs. KMI's recent deal for EP.

Earlier, VLO said it plans to boost Eagle Ford crude delivered to its refineries by 30%, and it doesn't rule out buying Sunoco's (SUN -4.4%) Pennsylvania refineries.

    Oil analysts say with the proper investment Libya's oil production could be improved from a pre-war production run of 1.6M barrels a day, up to 3M barrels. The catch is that the payoff is years down the road. Oil players are down sharply today: BP -4.6%, SLB -2.8%, MPC -4.89%, SUN -2.4%.
