    Meanwhile, MPLX took another step forward in early September after the company and its partners — fellow MLPs Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE:ETP) and Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP) as well as refiner Delek US Holdings — secured enough shippers to move ahead with construction on the Permian Gulf Coast Pipeline. The 600-mile pipeline will move crude oil from the Permian to the Texas coast. From there, it will flow into Energy Transfer Partners’ Nederland terminal as well as Magellan Midstream Partners’ East Houston terminal. The partners expect that the system will be in operation by the middle of 2020. It’s a crucial project for the industry since there currently isn’t enough pipeline capacity to move oil out of the Permian.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    In addition to those pipelines already under construction, companies continue to pitch new projects to shippers in hopes of locking in the next wave of growth. The latest entry into this building boom is the proposed Permian Gulf Coast pipeline, which is a joint venture between Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE:ETP), Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE:MMP), MPLX (NYSE:MPLX), and Delek US Holdings (NYSE:DK). The line could be in service as soon as mid-2020 if everything goes according to plan.

    ExxonMobil has several midstream partners lined up to help support its growth. In late 2016, it formed a strategic joint venture with Sunoco Logistics, which is now part of Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE:ETP), called Permian Express Partners. The joint venture combined key oil pipeline networks from both companies to help expand ExxonMobil’s options in suppling Permian crude to its refineries along the Gulf Coast. The Energy Transfer-operated partnership recently placed its third Permian Express pipeline into service and could boost that 140,000-barrel-a-day (BPD) line by another 50,000 BPD if it can secure enough additional shippers to support the project.

    When Polaris Industries (NYSE:PII) was mired in protracted product recalls because its popular RZR side-by-sides held the very real risk of spontaneously combusting, shares of the powersports vehicle manufacturer rose. While it is still having trouble getting that problem under control, Polaris recently reported strong earnings across all its divisions — and its stock plunged.

    What’s at stake is more than just bragging rights about which motorcycle company has the better racing team. In an industry suffering from flagging sales, race results highlight each bike maker’s technology, innovation, and prowess in building a top performance machine. And that could help provide an edge at dealerships. With Harley once again falling behind Indian’s owner Polaris Industries (NYSE:PII) in the early going, it could give Indian the momentum to keep driving sales higher.

    Dividend stocks can help income investors sleep at night as the companies often have durable competitive advantages that enable them to increase their dividends often, buy back shares, or both. Two stocks that definitely have competitive advantages and offer a stable dividend are Walmart (NYSE:WMT) and Polaris Industries (NYSE:PII). Sadly, many investors overlook these stocks simply because they screen for dividend yields exceeding 3% — but these two companies are too good to pass up.

    Polaris Industries (NYSE:PII) is looking better after a fourth-quarter earnings beat, despite motorcycle sales plunging by double-digit rates.

ETE’s growth depends upon a strong ETP, and we believe ETE will do what it takes to defend ETP.

investing forum: Aurora Cannabis Inc. (ACBFF)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Keith Speights]

    As increasingly more marijuana growers entered the market and more states allowed residents to legally grow marijuana, cannabis prices dropped throughout 2016. Wholesale marijuana prices late in the year were roughly half the levels of 12 months earlier. Will this trend continue — and possibly hurt leading marijuana stocks including Aphria (NASDAQOTH:APHQF),Aurora Cannabis (NASDAQOTH:ACBFF), Medical Marijuana,Inc.(NASDAQOTH:MJNA), and even GW Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:GWPH) in the process?

    This article is for those who are hopeful of the long-term view and want to get in ahead of time. This article will compare the three front-runners of the Canadian cannabis industry, Canopy Growth Corp. (OTCPK:TWMJF), Aphria (NYSE:APH), and Aurora (OTCQX:ACBFF). Although these companies will soon have to prove themselves in a new environment, there is plenty to study right now. We will be comparing revenue growth, production capacity, valuations, and then making financial projections. The result will be a recommendation of Aurora followed by Canopy. Again this article is meant to compare competitors. The industry has the potential to be a 22.6B industry but the thesis for investing in Canadian cannabis is a separate topic and I encourage you to consider the risks.

Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks For 2018

 It's one of the few constants in the financial markets…   Popular investment ideas are usually losers.   As we often preach, it pays to be a contrarian. Or as billionaire investor Warren Buffett has famously said, "Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful."   Whatever phrase you choose… whenever the "crowd" is heavily betting one way, it's often a good time to take the other side of that bet.    We were reminded of this fact when we saw the Commitments of Traders ("COT") report on the U.S. Treasury market earlier this week…   If you're not familiar, the COT is a weekly government report that tracks the bets of different types of traders in different futures markets, including U.S. Treasurys.

    But it was the powerhouse wireless division that probably accounted for most of the workforce growth. After all, AT&T is not the only wireless provider tapping the talent pool: Sprint (NYSE:S)made the 13th-most hires last year, and T-Mobile (NASDAQ:TMUS) came in at No. 21.

    Sprint was one of the company’s bright spots, with revenue up 4% to 楼910 billion. Sprint is reported to have resumed preliminary merger discussions with T-Mobile Inc. (TMUS) , according to report by Bloomberg Monday morning.

    One of the notable things about the mall is the number of troubled retailers it houses. Long term, this may be bad for the mall’s finances. Macy’s, Abercrombie & Fitch Co. (NYSE: ANF), GameStop Corp. (NYSE: GME) and Gap Inc. (NYSE: GPS) have locations. However, Mall of America has buttressed its tenant list with scores of restaurants and with retailers like Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL), Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ: MSFT) and T-Mobile US Inc. (NASDAQ: TMUS), which have very well-financed parents.

    Meanwhile, lower-end competitor T-Mobile (NASDAQ:TMUS) has focused on offering more value to its customers without relying on big mergers with media companies. And while T-Mobile is managing to increase its prices, AT&T and Verizon are seeing many of its customers switch to lower-priced, or at least higher-value, plans — if not switching carriers altogether.

Top 5 Warren Buffett Stocks For 2018: ENERGY TRANSFER PARTNERS(ETP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    Despite any intermediate fluctuations, we have only bad news to report on this stock’s performance over the last year: it has tumbled by 46.65%, worse than the S&P 500’s performance. Consistent with the plunge in the stock price, the company’s earnings per share are down 77.27% compared to the year-earlier quarter. Although its share price is down sharply from a year ago, do not assume that it can now be tagged as cheap and attractive. The reality is that, based on its current price in relation to its earnings, ETP is still more expensive than most of the other companies in its industry.

    Enterprise Products Partners L.P. (NYSE: EPD) has a too high yield, and Cramer thinks that it is a bargain. He added that the problem is in Energy Transfer Partners LP (NYSE: ETP), which is pulling the whole group down.

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    Along with the very weak revenue results, ETP underperformed when compared to the industry average of 36.8%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues plummeted by 55.8%. Weakness in the company’s revenue seems to have hurt the bottom line, decreasing earnings per share.

    The debt-to-equity ratio of 1.30 is relatively high when compared with the industry average, suggesting a need for better debt level management. Along with the unfavorable debt-to-equity ratio, ETP maintains a poor quick ratio of 0.86, which illustrates the inability to avoid short-term cash problems.

The partners expect commercial operations to begin this June, which means that this pipeline should drive incremental earnings for Phillips 66 in the back half of this year.
