El Paso Pipeline Partners has a market cap of $6.86 billion and is part of the basic materials sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 16.7, equal to the average energy industry P/E ratio and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are down 4.8% year to date as of the close of trading on Monday. Currently there are four analysts that rate El Paso Pipeline Partners a buy, one analyst rates it a sell, and five rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates El Paso Pipeline Partners as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its compelling growth in net income, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally poor debt management on most measures that we evaluated.

On the positive front, Cheniere Energy ( LNG), up 9.2%, Apco Oil and Gas International ( APAGF), up 8.5%, GeoGlobal Resources ( GGR), up 7.6%, and Penn Virginia Corporation ( PVA), up 7.4%, were all gainers within the energy industry with Royal Dutch Shell PLC ADR ( RDS.A) being today's featured energy industry winner.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the energy industry could consider Energy Select Sector SPDR ( XLE) while those bearish on the energy industry could consider Proshares Short Oil & Gas ( DDG).
