MarkWest Energy Partners LP (NYSE: MWE)

Midcoast Energy Partners LP (NYSE: MEP)

Analysts lowered their price target for Midcoast from $21.00 to $19.00 based on the depressed commodity price environment.

Regency Energy Partners LP (NYSE: RGP)

Analysts adjusted their price target from $30.00 to $27.00, as they expect lackluster distribution growth in the current environment.
