As you can see the stock has outperformed the market by a wide margin over every time period, including that fateful year of 2008. The stock has also delivered a steady stream of dividends and capital appreciation over the years. When I compare the performance of Magellan against the other 3,041 investments that I track, it earns a performance grade of "A." This is not easy for a large-cap, dividend paying stock!

Check out its track record of dividends.

Notice the steady track record of rising dividends over the last five years. Also notice a stock split in 2005. It should be noted that the stock is split 2:1 again earlier this week.

While I like good performance in the stocks that I own, I also demand a decent valuation. Magellan has had a very good run recently. The stock is not as cheap as it used to be, but it is about in line with other MLPs. The current dividend yield is still a very good 4.3%. I am OK with the current valuation.

The good news is this. Out of the 3,042 stocks that I follow, Magellan Midstream Partners currently ranks at number 104 overall. This overall ranking is based on performance, valuation, and safety. This is an extremely good ranking for a large-cap, conservative, dividend paying stock!

Magellan has a made a lot of investors like myself and my clients happy over the last several years. Clients of Gunderson Capital Mgt. Inc. and Bill Gunderson are currently long this stock.

And no I don't believe that we have enough pipelines!
