Todd Johnson wrote on Seeking Alpha this week....Breitburn Energy Partners offers an enticing 10.2% dividend yield to retirees. The upstream master limited partnership (MLP) generates revenues via natural gas and oil production. I would like to highlight 3 reasons why this MLP has its financials in order to pay out reliable dividends. The 10.2% yield can't be ignored by retirees in the world of a 2.61% 30 Year Treasury Bond yield. Click here to read Todds entire article.
In May equities research analysts at Citigroup lifted their price target on shares of Breitburn Energy from $26.00 to $27.00. The analysts wrote, “BBEP announced on 05/10/2012 that it signed two separate purchase agreements to acquire oil and natural gas properties in the Permian Basin for a combined price of $220 million, subject to customary closing conditions. The acquisition is expected to close within 60 days from the date of the announcement and will be funded with the company’s revolving credit facility.”
BBEP has been the subject of a number of other recent research reports.

But just this week has been upgraded by TheStreet Ratings from hold to buy. With The StreetWire saying....The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, compelling growth in net income, good cash flow from operations, impressive record of earnings per share growth and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.
