what I'm hearing is that analysts are concerned about softness in demand and they would like to see longer term contracts -
Yes i agree when they drop all refineries in to the mlp thevreal value will be unlocked but the market expects this fully so it will be priced well before.
What i dont agree with is you talking about dilution as a foregone conclusion though. They are financing 550 with a 7 yr note and are on schedule to report about $330-350 million of net income this yr. if we assume taht the brent spread will remain above $10 and the added cash flow from the acquisition there should be no reason for any additional financing
on etrade - but it gives no details - hopefully they have a high price target as well. We made the jump to $36.90 this morning as soon as this upgrade hit my account, so I don't think it is wrong info
UBS upgrade - couldn't find the price target though
Below is from the presentation and it sounds significant!!!
