Description: The company transports natural gas from the Montana-Saskatchewan border to the U.S. midwest.
Potential Upside in 2012: Over 15% to 20%, according to Jeffrey Sica, SICA Wealth Management manager.
Stock Price (Jan. 23 Close): $47.46TheStreet Ratings Grade: Buy. TheStreet Ratings team says although the company's third-quarter sales and net income grew compared with a year ago, it was unable to keep up with the average competitor's growth during that period. Sica's View: As an alternative energy business, TC Pipelines would benefit from a critical setback for Keystone, says Sica. And even without such as setback, TC Pipelines could rise 10% to 15% over the year given its substantial dividend payouts of over 5% and the steady demand for natural gas at record low prices.
