UPDATE: Wunderlich Initiates Plains All American Pipeline on Visible Near Term Growth
In a report published Monday, Wunderlich Securities analyst Abhishek Sinha initiated coverage on Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. (NYSE: PAA) with a Buy rating and a $60.00 price target.
The report summary read, “We believe the units offer an attractive balance of current yield and visible near-term distribution growth, while the asset base is well positioned for long-term growth as these assets are located in a few of the most prolific basins of the US. PAA has ~$7.0billion of organic projects to propel mostly fee-based cash flows. Our $60 pricetarget and 12-month distribution forecast implies a total return potential of ~30%and results in a 4.3% target yield. Further, assuming our 10-year distribution forecast and terminal value estimate, the stock's current price implies a relatively attractive market-based discount rate or annual IRR of 10.0%.”
Some key points from the report noted: -”Visible organic growth drives the momentum.” -”Fee-based model mitigates cash flow variability.”
Plains All American Pipeline closed on Friday at $50.57.
