Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star Chemdawg, tapped ONEOK Partners as a particularly timely bargain opportunity:

[J]ust wait until these guys finish all of their fractionation facilities and additional infrastructure buildout. ... [B]etter get in while it is still cheap ... it won't stay that way much longer. [D]ividend is strong and growing. [E]xpect that to grow at a rate greater than 10% per year going forward.
