Normally I do not engage in the investing strategy called merger arb. For those who are not familiar with it, merger arb involves purchasing the shares of companies that are in the midst of being taken over in an attempt to profit from the gap between the stock is currently trading for and the amount that the acquiring company will pay when the deal closes. In days of yore, when trading was more difficult for individual investors and there wasn't millions of hedge funds wringing every single penny out of arb opportunities, one could make decent money using this strategy. However, in today's market the spreads that are available for merger arb situations are usually so narrow that many, including myself, now equate the strategy to picking up nickels in front of a steamroller. Sure, you can grab a few of them, but eventually you're going to get squashed by a deal falling apart and potentially lose all of your previous merger arb profits and then some.

Now that I've completely bashed this investing technique, I am going to share the first interesting merger arb opportunity that I have come across in some time.

I Hate Merger Arb, But This One Sure Is Interesting

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.
