Another Refiner Sets Its Sights on an MLP Spinoff

Phillips 66 (NYSE: PSX  ) and its master limited partnership Phillips 66 Partners (NYSE: PSXP  ) have made the headlines recently, because of how high PSXP climbed during its first day of trading. It isn't the first refiner to find success with an MLP spinoff -- Marathon Petroleum's (NYSE: MPC  ) spinoff MPLX (NYSE: MPLX  ) is up more than 16% year to date -- and it doesn't look as if it will be the last.
