Energy Transfer Partners (NYSE:ETP) announced its cash distributions for the fourth quarter of 2012, leaving the distribution unchanged for the 19th consecutive quarter. Although distribution growth is one of focal points for investors, Energy Transfer Partners is in a great position, securing more long-term fixed-fee contracts in addition to a 40% ownership of Sunoco Logistics Partners (NYSE:SXL) and Southern Union. With an increasing credit rating and growing cash flows, investors shouldn't worry about this quarters distribution.
