  • Three Midstream Companies to Consider

    By Awais Iqbal - August 7, 2013 | Tickers: EPB, ETE, MMP

    The US oil-and-gas sector is adjusting to the massive changes which have come its way in the recent years. One of them is the technique called fracking, which has uncovered huge amounts of natural gas reserves locked underground. Exploration and production companies were quick to adapt this new technique, which resulted in the oversupply of natural gas in the country, making natural gas prices hit rock bottom. This change allowed more »

  • Why Oil Prices Could Plummet in 2014

    By Marie Palumbo - July 26, 2013 | Tickers: CVI, MMP, MPC, PSX, VLO

    Filling up the gas tank is always a challenge. It's painful to watch as the dollar amount rises far more quickly than the gallons going into your tank.  Thankfully, there’s hope: new pipelines to Gulf Coast refineries bring the (hopeful) promise of lower gas prices to drivers throughout the United States. But while construction may yield some tangible results for consumers, investors are in the best position to more »

  • Add One of These MLPs to Your Portfolio

    By Damon Churchwell - July 16, 2013 | Tickers: BPL, EPB, MMP

    The most appealing yields can often be found with master limited partnerships, because they typically distribute about 100% of profits to unitholders. At certain times, they may also provide capital appreciation. On that note, with crude oil prices picking up and natural gas drilling activity increasing, the upside potential for pipeline-operating MLPs looks promising. 

    Here are rundowns of just a few of the participating companies:

  • Diamondback Energy Is Priced Like The Rarest Diamond Of The Permian Basin

    By Nathan Kirykos - April 15, 2013 | Tickers: FANG, MMP, MHR, SXL, WLL

    Diamondback Energy (NASDAQ: FANG) is a junior oil and gas producer which is most likely unknown for most investors. Why? Because it held its IPO in October 2012. The truth is that the stock has a positive momentum lately. Does this rosy stock performance match the company's fundamentals?

  • 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.

  • 5 Quality Energy MLP's for 2013 and Beyond

    By Brad Prigmore - March 5, 2013 | Tickers: CLMT, EPD, MMP, MPLX, NTI

    Outlook Remains Positive for 2013

    Energy Master Limited Partnerships started off exceptionally strong in 2013, although the main contributing factor could simply be a resolution to the fiscal cliff impasse and investors’ interpretation that the deal reduces MLP taxation risk. Despite this strong early year showing, I believe MLP's fundamentals remain solid for several factors.

    By Jon Quast - November 27, 2012 | Tickers: CX, FTI, LINTA, MMP, PNR

    My personal portfolio is a little small-cap heavy right now.  So I've been doing some research to get a little more diversification.  In my article The Best of the Big Boys, I explored which of the five largest publicly traded companies offers the best investing opportunity to buy and hold investors.  In a similar fashion, I want to explore some mid-cap stocks.  Mid-cap companies are companies with a $1- more »

  • Five MLPs to Consider

    By Damon Churchwell - November 26, 2012 | Tickers: BPL, ETP, MMP, PAA, WPZ

    Master Limited Partnerships (MLP's) are companies with ownership structures such that each shareholder is a partner, and is typically entitled to distributions equal to his or her proportional net income. Accordingly, limited partners, or shareholders, usually receive generous yields on their investments. 

    Because their revenues are derived from natural resources, oil and natural gas pipeline operators are often organized as MLPs. If you are an income-seeking investor who is more »

    Do you know who will win the presidential election on November 6? How about the Scott Brown versus Elizabeth Warren race for Senate in Massachusetts? I have no idea. I can only base anything on reports, projections, and polls. Recent Washington Post polls have shown Romney pulling ahead with a 1% advantage; however, it is not the popular vote that puts one in office, as we saw 12 years ago more »
