Among the hedge funds being tracked by Insider Monkey, Washington-based firm Appaloosa Management LP is a leading shareholder in Energy Transfer LP (NYSE:ET), with 12.3 million shares worth more than $101 million.

Just like USA Compression Partners, LP (NYSE:USAC), PBF Logistics LP (NYSE:PBFX), and Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. (NASDAQ:PAA), Energy Transfer LP (NYSE:ET) is one of the stocks that elite investors are flocking to.

In its Q1 2021 investor letter, Miller/Howard Investments highlighted a few stocks and Energy Transfer LP (NYSE:ET) was one of them. Here is what the fund said:

“Another upweight was Energy Transfer LP (NYSE:ET), which was selling at a discount on EV/ EBITDA compared with the portfolio and had an attractive +20% FCF yield. Further, Energy Transfer LP (NYSE:ET)'s ample FCF should exceed the current distribution even if the Dakota Access Pipeline were to be shut down.”

9. Antero Midstream Corporation (NYSE:AM)

Number of Hedge Fund Holders: 16

Antero Midstream Corporation (NYSE:AM) owns and operates midstream energy infrastructure. A Periodic Transaction Report from February 14 shows that Green purchased Antero Midstream Corporation (NYSE:AM) stock worth $100,000-$250,000 on February 7 and disclosed the transaction in this regard a week later.

The hedge fund sentiment around Antero Midstream Corporation (NYSE:AM) stock is positive as well. At the end of the fourth quarter of 2021, 16 hedge funds in the database of Insider Monkey held stakes worth $93 million in Antero Midstream Corporation (NYSE:AM), up from 14 in the preceding quarter worth $87 million.

In its Q4 2020 investor letter, Bonhoeffer Capital Management, an asset management firm, highlighted a few stocks and Antero Midstream Corporation (NYSE:AM) was one of them. Here is what the fund said:

“Public LBOs (32% of Portfolio; Quarterly Average Performance +25%)

This includes our broadcast

TV franchises, leasing and roll-on/roll-off (RORO) shipping, and our natural gas pipeline firm. One trend in these levered firms is the increasing spread between bond yields and the firms’ free cash flow yield.

An example is Antero Midstream Corporation (NYSE:AM), whose FCF yield was 15% as of December 31, 2020, with a debt yield of 6% with the bond/equity FCF spread of 9%. This is a large spread given that Antero Midstream Corporation (NYSE:AM) has completed its backbone infrastructure and gathering investment and capital expenditures should be small going forward. With natural gas prices rebounding, Antero Midstream Corporation (NYSE:AM) cash flows become more secured as Antero Midstream Corporation (NYSE:AM) has more cash flow cushion in making payments to Antero Midstream. The recovery in natural gas prices is expected to continue as the economy opens up and low oil prices have shut down Permian oil wells that were generating almost-free associated natural gas. Antero Midstream’s FCF yield of 15% is also higher than similarly secured Antero Midstream Corporation (NYSE:AM) subordinated debt with a yield of 7.8%.”

“NGL Energy Partners LP (NYSE:NGL) dropped 37.0% over the period, though its small weight in the fund meant only 12 basis points (bps) of value detraction. NGL Energy Partners LP (NYSE:NGL) reported EBITDA of $138M, missing consensus of $142 by 3% driven by lower than expected crude and water volumes. Distributable cash flow of $73M beat analyst estimates of $69M and provided 5.5x coverage on the reduced quarterly dividend of $0.10/share (13.6% annualized yield). Since July 1st, NGL has retired $75M of unsecured notes, bringing Year-to-Date (YTD) repurchases to $125M.
