Kinder Morgan: Canada gov't approves Trans Mountain Expansion Project

Kinder Morgan announced that the Government of Canada has granted approval for the Trans Mountain Expansion Project in a landmark decision that affirms both the strength of the project and the rigor of the review process it has undergone. The Trans Mountain Expansion Project is an opportunity for Canada to access world markets for its resources by building on an existing pipeline system. The C$6.8B expansion will result in direct and lasting benefits, including C$46.7B in taxes and royalties for governments, more than 800,000 person years of employment over the life of the project and enabling producers to capture an additional C$73.5B in revenues. This final federal approval triggers a number of next steps. Trans Mountain will continue to seek all necessary permits, and is planning to begin construction in September 2017, with an in-service date for the twinned pipeline expected in late 2019. Other next steps will include a final cost estimate review with shippers committed to the Project and a final investment decision by the Kinder Morgan Board of Directors.

Outperform
Kinder Morgan upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Danilo Juvane upgraded Kinder Morgan to Outperform and raised its price target to $26 from $20. The analyst has increased conviction in the pending approval of the $5.4B Trans Mountain project saying it sets the stage for a "trifecta" that includes a 2019 dividend rebasing to $1.50/share, with 10% growth, coverage of 1.2x, and leverage below 5x. Juvane views Kinder Morgan as a core holding in any midstream portfolio and said shares trade at a discount.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. American Express (AXP) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at BofA/Merrill with the firm's analyst saying the third quarter earnings report points to better than expected billings and higher net interest income and should result in improved sentiment. 2. Kinder Morgan (KMI) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse, to Buy from Hold at Stifel, and to Outperform from Peer Perform at Wolfe Research. 3. MAA (MAA) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies and to Outperform from Market Perform at JMP Securities. 4. Banc of California (BANC) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at DA Davidson with analyst Gary Tenner citing a steep recent selloff that culminated with Tuesday's decline sparked by a negative Seeking Alpha post. The bank has refuted the most meaningful claim in the recent article and its just-released earnings beat expectations, driven by higher fee income levels, Tenner tells investors. 5. DragonWave (DRWI) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Desjardins with analyst Maher Yaghi saying the Sprint (S) contract announcement may be large enough to bring operations back into a cash neutral position.
