Susser Petroleum Partners cut to Hold from Buy at Benchmark

|By:, SA News Editor

Susser Petroleum Partners (SUSP -1%) is downgraded to Hold from Buy with a $47 price target at Benchmark, as it is still unclear as to how much SUSP will pay for the assets of Susser Holdings and Sunoco retail and wholesale operations.

The analysts are concerned that with Energy Transfer Partners (ETP +0.9%) gaining control of SUSP, value could be transferred from SUSP unit holders to ETP unit holders, if ETP charges too much for the assets SUSP will acquire.

SUSS +0.5%.
