Analyzing Energy Transfer’s 8.3% Yield

Energy Transfer (ET) paid a per-unit distribution of $0.305 for Q3 2018, which implies a yield of ~8.3%, based on Energy Transfer’s current stock price. Though Energy Transfer Partners’ unitholders had to take an effective distribution cut after the merger with Energy Transfer Equity, Energy Transfer’s yield looks attractive currently. Energy Transfer’s distribution coverage ratio, pro forma for the Energy Transfer Partners-Energy Transfer Equity merger, was 1.73x for Q3 2018.
