  • 1. Barclays PLC analysts commented, "In-line 4Q, reiterated distribution growth guidance of +25% in 2017 and at least +20% in 2018. VLP's outlook is supported by a $1B EBITDA drop down inventory at parent VLO, consisting of 45% pipelines and terminals, 20% marine and rail, and 35% fuels marketing by our estimates. With a competitive currency (3.3% current yield vs. 6.6% coverage universe) and recently achieved IG status as of December (BBB-/Baa3), we believe VLP is well-equipped to execute drop downs and thirdparty acquisitions to achieve its guidance. In addition to growth visibility, VLP also offers cash flow stability with 100% fee-based revenues, of which 85% are under minimum volume commitments, and long-term contracts with 10-year initial terms. Maintain PT of $55." (2/6/2017)
