NEW YORK, Oct. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Enterprise Products Partners, L.P. (NYSE:EPD: $61) has been picked by S&P Capital IQ as its Focus Stock of the Week. EPD carries S&P Capital IQ's highest investment recommendation of 5-STARS, or Strong Buy. EPD is a publicly traded master limited partnership (MLP) that offers integrated midstream services to producers and consumers of natural gas, natural gas liquids (NGLs), crude oil, petrochemicals, and refined products.
"We believe EPD is a best-in-class MLP that is well-positioned to benefit from what we view as strategically located assets, diverse cash flows, and a solid balance sheet," said Tanjila Shafi, equity analyst at S&P Capital IQ. "It has a strong asset base, in our opinion, with access to high-demand markets and major supply sources. We see EPD benefiting from several potential catalysts, including its strong presence in shale plays, growing NGL production, export opportunities, and its $8 billion of major growth projects under development for the next two-and-a-half years, which we expect will support growing distributions."
