5 Buy-Rated Dividend Stocks: WMB, SIX, APL, NGLS, WPC

Atlas Pipeline Partners

Dividend Yield: 6.10%

Atlas Pipeline Partners (NYSE: APL) shares currently have a dividend yield of 6.10%.

Atlas Pipeline Partners, L.P. operates in the gathering and processing segments of the midstream natural gas industry. The company operates in two segments, Gathering and Processing; and Transportation, Treating, and Other. The company has a P/E ratio of 94.29

The average volume for Atlas Pipeline Partners has been 766,100 shares per day over the past 30 days Atlas Pipeline Partners has a market cap of $3.0 billion and is part of the energy industry Shares are up 21% year to date as of the close of trading on Friday

TheStreet Ratings rates Atlas Pipeline Partners as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 13.3%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 38.0%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
  • Compared to its closing price of one year ago, APL's share price has jumped by 31.05%, exceeding the performance of the broader market during that same time frame. We feel that the stock's sharp appreciation over the last year has driven it to a price level which is now somewhat expensive compared to the rest of its industry. The other strengths this company shows, however, justify the higher price levels.
  • ATLAS PIPELINE PARTNER LP has exprienced a steep decline in earnings per share in the most recent quarter in comparison to its performance from the same quarter a year ago. The company has suffered a declining pattern of earnings per share over the past year. However, we anticipate this trend reversing over the coming year. During the past fiscal year, ATLAS PIPELINE PARTNER LP reported lower earnings of $0.97 versus $5.22 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($1.78 versus $0.97).
  • APL's debt-to-equity ratio of 0.89 is somewhat low overall, but it is high when compared to the industry average, implying that the management of the debt levels should be evaluated further. Regardless of the somewhat mixed results with the debt-to-equity ratio, the company's quick ratio of 0.78 is weak.
  • Net operating cash flow has decreased to $35.26 million or 17.52% when compared to the same quarter last year. Despite a decrease in cash flow of 17.52%, ATLAS PIPELINE PARTNER LP is in line with the industry average cash flow growth rate of -24.27%.
