  • The Mitchell Effect

    By Mark Morelli - August 15, 2013 | Tickers: CSX, EEP, HAL, NUE

    One of the world's greatest innovators died recently. No, he wasn't from the high tech industry. He didn't invent the latest iDevice. George Mitchell, the founder of the former Mitchell Energy and Development Corp., was widely credited with the pioneering work that combined horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing in the Eagle Ford shale rock formation in Texas. He was 94.

    His methods led to the unlocking of more »

  • 2 Myths You've Been Told About the Keystone XL Pipeline

    By Robert Baillieul - August 7, 2013 | Tickers: EEP, ENB, KMP, TRP

    The debate surrounding TransCanada's (NYSE: TRP) Keystone XL pipeline has been one of the fact-free varieties. Both sides - industry representatives and environmentalists - stretch the truth a little to justify their case. Let's address two of the biggest myths surrounding the project and what they mean for investors. 

    Myth #1: Keystone will cut the price of gas at the pump

    This is a common claim made by supporters of more »

    By Robert Baillieul - August 7, 2013 | Tickers: EEP, ENB, RDS-B, RDS-A

  • The Beginner's Guide to Enbridge

    By Robert Baillieul - August 6, 2013 | Tickers: EEQ, EEP, ENF, ENB

    Enbridge is a convoluted beast. As Fool contributor Aimee Duffy described in a recent piece, the company's operations include liquid pipelines, gas distribution, storage, corporate transactions, and gas pipelines. It can be a difficult business to wrap your head around.

    But one area that I thought deserved more attention was the company's sponsored investments. So today, I'm going to talk about these four entities as investment vehicles more »

  • 3 Pipeline MLPs You Should Consider

    By Damon Churchwell - July 24, 2013 | Tickers: EEP, KMP, SEP

    The pipeline MLP industry has gained increased recognition of late along with rising crude oil prices. Operators of transport systems have always been good investments for those seeking high yields. At times, they may entice seekers of price appreciation, as well.

    Due to the fact that they are some of the best-yielding companies, MLPs are typically priced at a premium. It is likely that this is also because of the more »

  • Kinder Morgan, Enbridge, Union Pacific: Do Rails Trump Pipelines?

    By Jacob Wolinsky - June 18, 2013 | Tickers: EEP, KMP, UNP

    Editor's Note: The initial article stated Phillips 66 signed a five-year contract with Union Pacific to deliver crude from the Bakken. That was incorrect; the contract was with Global Partners. This article has been amended.

    A couple of high-profile project cancellations have raised questions over the attractiveness of crude oil and liquid petroleum pipeline companies such as Enbridge Energy (NYSE: EEP) and Kinder Morgan (NYSE: KMP), while making a more »

  • 3 High Yielding MLPs That Offer Significant Upside

    By Piyush Arora - June 13, 2013 | Tickers: EEP, EPD, KMP

    It’s a good strategy to invest in income growth companies, sit back, and reap the rewards. But to beat inflation, investing in high yielding, yet stable companies is important. And this is exactly where companies with an MLP (Master Liability Partnerships) status roll in.

    MLPs are generally oil and gas companies that generate consistent cash flows. They distribute the bulk of their cash generated and don’t have to more »

  • Juicy MLPs: Know Your Risks, or Risk Your Future

    By Marina Avilkina - June 12, 2013 | Tickers: EEP, EPD, KMP, TRP

    Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (NYSE: KMP) is the largest U.S. pipeline company and, in its latest quarter, saw net income increase three times to $783 million from $206 million on a year-to-year basis. The company is deriving incremental benefits from its pipeline system with its recent purchase of Tennessee Gas Pipeline and the partial acquisition of El Paso Natural Gas Co.

  • Keystone Could Set The Bar High

    By Reuben Brewer - May 14, 2013 | Tickers: EEP, ENB, EPD, KMP, TRP

    TransCanada's (NYSE: TRP) proposed Keystone pipeline has been mired in government red tape for years. With a massive body of information and increasingly stringent regulations floated as requirements for the project's approval, all pipeline companies may be impacted by the project, even if it gets turned down.


    The Keystone pipeline is intended to bring oil from Canada's oil sands region down through the United States to more »

  • 3 Phillips 66 Partners, Good Investments in Their Own Right?

    By Robert Zimmerman - April 3, 2013 | Tickers: EEP, MMP, PSX, NGLS

    Phillips 66 (NYSE: PSX) recently announced deals with three companies to increase the supply of North American crude oil to Phillips’ refineries. This will boost Phillips profits since North American crude is roughly $15/bbl cheaper than Brent crude that Phillips buys for its East Coast refineries. While these deals are important to Phillips, they have their own respectable businesses, too. Let’s take a look at them.

  • Profit From The Coming U.S. Oil Boom With These Stocks

    By Bob Ciura - March 14, 2013 | Tickers: BP, CVX, EEP

    The nation’s determination to reduce its dependence on foreign oil has resulted in a more pronounced focus on domestic energy development. Although prices at the pump are still painfully high, there are signs of progress on this front. Recently, the International Energy Agency (IEA) recently forecast the United States will become the world's largest oil producer by 2020.

    Furthermore, the Energy Information Administration (EIA) last month reported that more »

  • Two Pipelines for Dividends, One to Be Wary Of

    By Robert Zimmerman - January 31, 2013 | Tickers: EEP, ETP, EPD

    A growing problem for the growing North American oil business involves transportation.  Simply stated, oil production exceeds pipeline capacity.  While a problem for producers, this situation opens a big door for midstream pipeline companies and their investors.  Recently, Enbridge Energy Partners (NYSE: EEP) and Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE: EPD) responded to this pipeline bottleneck by expanding their joint venture Seaway Pipeline.  While these two companies collaborated on this pipeline, for more »

  • A Flexible Pipeline Company with Flexible Pipelines

    By Robert Zimmerman - January 25, 2013 | Tickers: EEP, EPD

    The boom in domestic oil production in the United States has created a problem: how to get all this oil to refineries?  A pipeline will do the job in the least expensive way, but currently so much oil is being produced, particularly in the Bakken oil shale, that pipeline capacity can’t move it all.  Enbridge Energy Partners (NYSE: EEP), in conjunction with Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE: EPD) responded by more »

  • Investing Over The Cliff: To PetroBakken Or Not To PetroBakken

    By Nathan Kirykos - January 16, 2013 | Tickers: CPG, EEP, ENB, PBN

    The investors with exposure to the Canadian resource sector experienced some hard times during 2012. The TSX/S&P Venture index has fallen from 1,700 to 1,190, and this has brought several companies down to fire-sale prices. As I am always willing to go bargain hunting, my radar caught PetroBakken Energy (TSX: PBN), which has dropped from $17 in early 2012 down to $9.40 today.

    My dad became a stockbroker 30 years ago when I was in college.  So it came as a jolt when he recently asked me for investment advice.  “I need some more income from my investments, “ he said.

    Like many his age, retirement income was supposed to be in the form of CDs and bank accounts; safe, dependable investments producing interest income.  Today, that approach is a financial dog that just more »

  • ExxonMobil Energy Forecast

    By Mark Morelli - December 12, 2012 | Tickers: ACI, BP, CVX, COP, EEP, XOM, GE

    In light of how discounted energy stocks are right now, I thought it would be fitting to highlight two of the largest producers in the field: BP and Conoco. One company--do we need to say who?--has been conflict-ridden by regulators and powerful businessmen yet opening a new chapter of its life where it can focus on high returns. The other company has been de-risking operations through partner agreements and more »

  • Top Investors Are Buying These Companies

    By Federico Zaldua - November 6, 2012 | Tickers: APC, CTCT, DE, EEP, FIO

    Despite a weak economic recovery in the US, a recession in Europe, and decelerating growth elsewhere (notably in emerging economies China, India, and Brazil), the S&P 500 has rallied 12% since early June. Global monetary policy enabled the market to overcome these headwinds and I think the global rally could resume its past uptrend from the current short term correction. In this report I highlight 5 stocks that have more »
