Tagged this one down a few days ago, but didn't trigger it.
Not clear to me why it bottom bounced as much as it did off the little oil price bounce...but it's buddy WMB took an even bigger hit.
Anyone who expects the $3+ dividend to continue is dreaming...acquisition is clearly on the rocks if it was ever really viable. When one of the larger based analysts drops the price target from $30 to $7 in one day...it must be pretty dismal...(why did the down grade take so long..it didn't lose that much value overnight)? It apparently took a Chesapeake to wake them up for a broader analysis.

Any company with outsized dividends that is supported by borrowing and share issue is a form of a Ponzi scheme...often the first in get the most, especially if the carrot is decaying instead of growing.....

Not sure if the Chesapeake related dumping of the group will be a short term undershoot, meaning my entry may not be optimal, or if reality will grow, generating fear and more people willing to book a loss, but keep part of their shirt...

$21B in long term debt, $4B in short term and A/P...with debt and share issue options drying up paints a pretty obvious picture...$250M a quarter...$1B a year in interest payments ....

Target 50 points, reupp..and do it again if the precipice allows...

$30 billion backlog of projects and now part of the Energy Transfer empire should help secure financing to grow distribution for years to come.

I'm not a big fan of oil due to my skepticism about China, however I can see a short term bounce back from the recent hard landing. I like natural gas though and the combination are enough to green thumb this one. See my UPL pitch for more on natural gas.

Recent dips in the S&P 500 hammered many oil stocks but the MLPs are not significantly affected. Look for great up-side moves by other investors to jump onboard similar MLPs in this oil and gas sector.

I don't like that the payout ratio is so high, but given the recent boom in natural gas pipeline companies should do well for years to come.

Right-of-way monopoly serving extraction monopolists with long-run contracts. Lots of expansion on the way. Buy land in Louisiana! That's how you win at Monopoly!

This is a Master Limited Partnership (MLP). Williams Partners is 66% owned and 100% controlled by Williams Companies. So, this pays high dividends which may be a good stock for ROTH IRA setting. Additionally, there is substantial opportunity for capital gains. Williams Partners has a wide economic moat. It's legacy interstate pipelines are wide-moat assets, served by multiple producing regions (Marcellus, Eagle Ford, and Gulf Coast) and reaching growing population centers with consistently high utilization (US: NW, NE and SE) . There is roughly $8 billion in investment projects entering service by 2015.
Risk: MLPs may, in the future, face regulatory or legislative changes (pipeline tariffs are regulated; MLPs are currently tax-advantaged).

WPZ will benefit from increased demand for LNG. They will be very active in the building of infrastructure to deliver this cheap energy. Also, as an MLP they pay distributions equal to about 6%.

There is a shortage of gas pipelines in this country. The huge amount of natural gas currently coming on line from new technology will continue to increase for the next five to ten years. Pipeline companies will benefit and grow. Huge growth potential. Great dividend. If you believe in the nat gas story, check it out. The boom has already begun and more to come.
