Grim Outlook For Many Oil MLPs

(Last Updated On: August 9, 2016)

Benzinga recently reported that the Goldman Commodities team saw their target price for WTI crude oil drop from $57 to $45 in 2016. In addition the firm lowered its outlook for oil names.

“Goldman’s Theodore Durbin said that the firm lowered its target prices for pipeline and MLP names by 16 percent, on average.”

In Benzinga’s report, some of the MLP’s downgraded to sell by Durbin included Enable Midstream Partners LP, Memorial Production Partners LP, Oneok Partners LP and Plains All American Pipeline LP.

Master Limited Partnership’s (MLP) are extremely complex and risky, making them better suited for institutional investors or wealthy and sophisticated retail investors. It is for this reason that The White Law Group is investigating the liability that brokerage firms may have for recommending high risk MLPs.

Brokerage firms are required to perform adequate due diligence on investments to determine if they are suitable for each individual client. Recommendations should be in line with the clients net worth, investment experience, and investment objectives.
