The 3 Worst Midstream Companies

The midstream industry transports and processes North America's oil and natural gas. As production has soared, so too have shares of our favorite midstream companies. The majority of plays in this energy subsector are performing in line with or above the return of the S&P 500. In this video, Motley Fool contributor Aimee Duffy looks at the three poorest performers in the midstream industry through the first quarter of this year.  

The surge in oil and natural gas production from the fracking movement is creating massive bottlenecks in takeaway capacity. However, this problem for producers creates an immensely profitable opportunity for midstream companies. Energy Transfer Partners is a company that helps alleviate the glut in supply with its 23,500 miles of transformational pipelines. To see if ETP and its sizable dividend payment could be a good fit for your portfolio, you're invited to check out The Motley Fool's premium research report on the company. Simply click here now for a thorough expert analysis of this midstream company.

    I would rather have an article than a video. A chart showing the entire group would also be helpful to compare her data.

    But all they really want to do is create an opportunity to sell another premium research report.
