3 Reasons to Sell Enterprise Products Partners

In this video, contributor Aimee Duffy talks about three reasons to sell Enterprise Products Partners (NYSE: EPD  ) :

  • High debt levels.
  • Exposure to commodity risk, particularly with its NGL business.
  • Significant assets in the Gulf of Mexico, an area prone to hurricanes and potential moratoriums for offshore spills.

Enterprise is on a tear of late, and though Aimee doesn't advocate selling, she acknowledges the importance of reminding ourselves of a company's threats so as to stay balanced and keep from getting swept away in the good times. 

For more details, check out the video.

The growing production of natural gas from hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling is flooding the North American market and resulting in record-low prices for natural gas. Enterprise Products Partners, with its superior integrated asset base, can profit from the massive bottlenecks in takeaway capacity by taking on large-scale projects.
