On CAPS, 94% of the 179 members who have rated DCP believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include B1ll1am and All-Star TMFDeej, who is ranked in the top 1% of our community.
Earlier this year, B1ll1am touched on the tailwinds working in DCP's favor: "This LP should do well as long as energy demand is strong for oil and gas. It pays a nice dividend as well."
In fact, DCP currently boasts a juicy dividend yield of 6.3%. That's higher than industry peers like El Paso Partners
CAPS All-Star TMFDeej elaborates on the bargain opportunity:
I'm taking advantage of the recent selling caused by the rumor that the government is considering changing the tax laws on MLPs to add shares of them to my CAPS portfolio.
DCP Midstream Partners is a 50-50 joint venture between two big boys in the natural gas sector, Spectra Energy
and ConocoPhillips (NYSE: SE) . (NYSE: COP)
This company is not really all that well known, but it is actually the largest pure-play gatherer and processor of natural gas in the U.S. It is also the country's biggest producer of natural gas liquids.
Natural gas is a sector that will likely be very attractive over the next several years as the price of oil remains high and nuclear power faces strong headwinds.
DPM isn't tiny, but it's small enough that it still has room to grow.
