Enbridge Energy Partners (EEP ) is being downgraded from an overall DARS rating of 3.5 to 3.4, as its exposure to oil means there is further downside to this stock.

At 3.4, we do not recommend adding further money to this stock. Enbridge navigated the commodity downturn very well by not cutting its dividend.

This stock was up 5% in the 2008 recession and is up 3% for 2016 in a falling market.
