  • Bank of America Merrill Lynch Upgrades Kinder Morgan Energy Partners to "Buy" (KMP)

    Analysts at Bank of American Merrill Lynch believe that the recent pullback in Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP's (KMP) share price offers a good entry point for investors. As such, the analysts upgraded the oil and gas pipeline company on Tuesday. The analysts upgraded KMP from "Neutral" to "Buy," but lowered the price target from $91 to $89. This new price target suggests a 10% upside to the stock's Monday closing price of $80.65. A Bank of America Merrill Lynch analyst commented, "We upgrade KMP to Buy (from Neutral) as we believe the recent pullback in its unit price is overdone. Approximately 35% of KMP's long-term debt is largely swapped to floating rates (~$6.2bn as of 31 March 2013) and potentially negatively exposed to rising interest rates. We believe the fear of tighter monetary policy has been a significant driver of KMP's underperformance since May (KMP units declined 8.8% since 30 April 2013 versus 4.5% for the AMZ). That said, mgmt projected a 100 basis point increase in average interest rates would increase 2013 interest expense by only $57mn (~1% of our 2013 adjusted EBITDA forecast of $4,942mn)." Kinder Morgan shares were up $1.85, or 2.25%, during morning trading on Tuesday. The stock is up 3.4% year-to-date. The Bottom Line Shares of Kinder Morgan (KMP) have a dividend yield of 6.45% based on last night's closing price of $80.65 and the company's annualized dividend payout of $5.20 per share. Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP (KMP) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.4 out of 5 stars.
