What are Wall Street analysts saying about Buckeye Partners stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Buckeye Partners stock:
  • 1. Barclays PLC analysts commented, "We think the uplift could translate to an incremental +7- 11% to our current 2020 EBITDA estimate and +9-15% to DCF. At BPL’s current 2020 EV/EBITDA multiple of 8.7x, this would imply up to +15% upside potential to its unit price. We note that our exercise only looks at potential benefit from incremental storage of HSFO. We have not included any uplift from other product dislocations (e.g. gasoline) nor does the analysis account for any significant increase in renegotiated short-term storage rates in the event of an improved forward structure. Investment thesis." (2/19/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Buckeye Partners has an attractive portfolio of refined petroleum-product transportation and storage assets in the key geographical markets. Its organic capital growth projects will drive the performance in the domestic as well as in the international arenas. The decision to sell non-core assets and focus on high-return domestic assets will boost the performance of the partnership. In the past six months, units of Buckeye Partners have outperformed its industry. However, Buckeye Partners’ dependence on limited group of customers for bulk of its storage revenues could adversely impact the partnership’s performance. Increasing competition, stringent regulations and rising challenges for segregated storage may largely impact its cash flows and financial position." (2/12/2019)
