According to Wall Street analyst estimates, Energy Transfer (ET) stock has a median price target of $22.33, compared to its current market price of $14.93, which implies an upside potential of 50% over the next 12 months.

Energy Transfer (ET) stock is currently trading at a forward enterprise value–to–EBITDA multiple of 12x, based on its expected 2019 earnings. Its five-year historical average valuation is over 16x. Peers’ average is close to 10x. So Energy Transfer stock seems to be trading at a premium valuation to its peers, and it seems inexpensive compared to its historical average.
