What are analysts saying about Sunoco LP stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Sunoco LP stock:

  • 1. Citigroup Inc. analysts commented, "art of the deal."Faisel referenced a deal Sunoco struck with the convenience store chain Seven-11 in which Sunoco agreed to sell 1,110 of its retail stores. In fact, the analyst believes that Sunoco's management is the "best deal team in the game."According to Faisel, Sunoco's management team has proven to be among the best in its space in terms of deal execution. Prior to the deal with Seven-11, Sunoco was not only "significantly" overlevered but unable to cover its distributions and "headed for capitulation."With this sale, that narrative appears to have changed dramatically," the analyst wrote.Why Just A Neutral Rating?The analyst reiterated that while the asset sale is a "game changing" move, it doesn't fully erase the case against owning the stock. Specifically, the company's management didn't provide answers to key questions around the deal, including the tax implications of the transaction and plans to address an apparent hole in coverage.Faisel also argued that similar "aggressive deal making" in the past is responsible for Sunoco's unit prices to tumble for a multi-year high of $37.25 to a low of $21.01 before the Seven-11 deal prompted a sharp rebound."As we ponder all the qualitative and quantitative analysis we have done to date on SUN, we have decided that the most practical advice we can give investors who choose to invest in SUN is to follow the smart money," the analyst concluded. "The smartest money here is inside money. If SUN's GP required a 10 percent yield on preferred securities, which are senior to SUN LP units. We would not recommend investors bid the LP units above a 10 percent yield." (4/25/2017)
  • 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "ASNA hosted an investor day on January 18, 2017, where management provided updated enterprise transformation initiatives, which include leveraging ASNA’s centers of excellence within brand services and corporate. ASNA gave details on its new $150M transformational cost savings goal, which it believes is achievable by FY19 and likely beatable. ASNA also gave an update on each brand’s strategy and reiterated guidance provided last week at ICR for EPS of ($0.11)–($0.08)/$0.37– $0.42 in F2Q17/FY17. We are lowering our F2Q17 EPS estimate to ($0.10) from ($0.03) and our FY17 EPS estimate to $0.40 from $0.56." (1/19/2017)
  • 3. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Sunoco LP operates as a wholesale fuel distributor. It engages in distributing motor fuel to convenience stores, independent dealers, commercial customers and distributors. The Company also operates convenience stores and retail fuel sites. Sunoco LP, formerly known as Susser Petroleum Partners LP, is based in Houston, Texas. " (10/13/2016)
  • 4. Robert W. Baird analysts commented, "This implies equity issuance or another solution – distribution cuts have been the weapon of choice for overlevered MLPs. In our view, copious leverage that dangles its toes over the covenant edge adds distribution risk and warrants a cautious approach," analyst Ethan Bellamy wrote in a note.Bellamy cut 2016 EBITDA and DCF/unit by 12 percent and 22 percent, respectively, on a 10 percent volume reduction somewhat offset by a 1 percent margin increase.Related Link: Sunoco's Newest Acquisition Could Be A Good Deal After All"We had previously defended SUN on the premise that margins would improve, which they did (+8 percent vs. estimates). But a 13 percent disconnect from our volume forecast ultimately drove a 23 percent miss vs. our DCF/unit, netting to uninspiring 0.95x coverage," (8/4/2016)
