    Market Realist10 days ago

    Will Kinder Morgan’s Fourth-Quarter Results Support Its Stock?

    Kinder Morgan Is Expected to Report Higher Q4 Earnings (Continued from Prior Part) ## Kinder Morgan stock So far, Kinder Morgan (KMI) stock has risen ~12% in 2019. Kinder Morgan has risen more compared to the 3% rise in the broader markets and an 8% rise in the Energy Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLE). In the last 12 months, Kinder Morgan fell ~9%. XLE fell 17%, while the SPDR S&P 500 ETF fell ~6% during the same period. Strong fourth-quarter results might boost Kinder Morgan stock. The above graph compares the performance of Kinder Morgan stock with its peers over the last 12 months. Enterprise Products Partners (EPD) fell 4%, while ONEOK (OKE) rose 5% during this period. ## Kinder Morgan’s yield Kinder Morgan is trading at a yield of ~4.6%. Enterprise Products Partners is trading at a yield of ~6.4%, while ONEOK is offering a yield of ~5.7%. Williams Companies (WMB) is trading at a yield of ~5.4%. So, Kinder Morgan’s yield is on the lower side compared to its peers. Kinder Morgan expects to increase its dividends 25% in 2019—compared to 2018. ## 2019 guidance Kinder Morgan expects its distributable cash flow to increase 10% in 2019—compared to 2018. Kinder Morgan’s Elba liquefaction project and the Gulf Coast Express project are expected to contribute to its earnings in 2019. The company expects to spend $3.1 billion on growth projects, including contributions to joint ventures. Kinder Morgan targets a net debt-to-adjusted EBITDA ratio of 4.5x at the end of 2019. The ratio was at 4.6x at the end of the third quarter. Next, we’ll discuss analysts’ recommendations for Kinder Morgan before its fourth-quarter earnings.

    Kinder Morgan: What to Expect from Its Q4 Earnings

    Kinder Morgan Is Expected to Report Higher Q4 Earnings ## Kinder Morgan’s Q4 results Kinder Morgan (KMI) is scheduled to report its fourth-quarter results on January 16. Analysts expect its fourth-quarter EPS to be $0.26 per share—a rise of 23% YoY (year-over-year) and an 18% sequential rise from Kinder Morgan’s EPS of $0.22 in the third quarter. Kinder Morgan beat its EPS estimates in five of the last nine quarters. Kinder Morgan missed the estimates in two quarters and met the estimates in the other two quarters. The above graph shows Kinder Morgan’s EPS estimates and adjusted EPS during the last nine quarters. Kinder Morgan expects to exceed its DCF (distributable cash flow) guidance of $4.57 billion for 2018. For 2019, Kinder Morgan expects 10% DCF growth compared to 2018. ## Commodity prices WTI crude oil prices averaged $60 per barrel in the fourth quarter—lower by an average of $10 per barrel compared to the third quarter. However, the prices were higher compared to an average of $55 per barrel in the same quarter the previous year. Henry Hub natural gas prices averaged $3.8 per MMBtu (million British thermal units) in the fourth quarter—compared to an average of $2.9 per MMBtu in the third quarter of 2018 and the fourth quarter of 2017. Stronger gas prices should have supported Kinder Morgan’s fourth-quarter earnings. Plains All American Pipeline (PAA) is scheduled to release its fourth-quarter results on February 5. ONEOK (OKE) is expected to report its results in the last week of February. Williams Companies (WMB) is expected to report its earnings around February 13. Kinder Morgan accounts for ~2.9% of the Energy Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLE)—an energy ETF representing the S&P 500 Index’s energy sector.
