  • Deutsche Bank Upgrades Buckeye Partners to "Buy" (BPL)

    Last week, Buckeye Partners, L.P. (BPL) announced that agreed to acquire product terminals from Hess (HES) for about $850 million. This deal plus a $500 million equity offering announced last week were cited as the reasons Deutsche Bank analysts upgraded the oil pipeline operator on Monday. The analysts upgrade BPL from "Hold" to "Buy" and see shares reaching $75, up from the previous target of $70. This new price target suggests a 14% upside to the stock's Friday closing price of $65.93. "The addition of the deal announced last week where BPL is acquiring products terminals from Hess for $850 million and the completion of an equity offering of about $500 million produce an updated model (excerpted below) that shows a 20% increase in ebitda in 2014 on top of the 18% increase in ebitda that we estimate for 2013," Deutsche Bank analyst Curt Launer stated. "Our forecast distribution growth rate per unit is now 5%, an increase from the 3% level we have in place for 2013." Buckeye shares were inactive during pre-market trading on Monday. The stock is up 45.19% year-to-date.

    The Bottom Line

    Shares of Buckeye Partners (BPL) offer a dividend yield of 6.45% based on Friday's closing price of $65.93 and the company's annualized dividend payout of $4.25 per share. Buckeye Partners, L.P.
