Deutsche views ending of SunEdison, Vivint deal as potential positive
Deutsche Bank analyst Vishal Shah believes the termination of SunEdison's (SUNE) agreement to acquire Vivint Solar (VSLR) is a potential longer-term positive for SunEdison and TerraForm Power (TERP). The failure may also turn out to be a positive for Vivint in the long run, Shah tells investors in a research note. Investor focus will now shift from near-term liquidity and balance sheet stress for both TerraForm and SunEdison to potential legal ramifications from Vivint and Blackstone (BX), the analyst contends. He believes, however, that the legal impact may not be that significant considering the audit committee investigation and resulting lack of financing availability.

Energy Transfer Partners weakness overdone, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Elvira Scotto remains upbeat on Sunoco Logistics' (SXL) acquisition of Energy Transfer (ETP) and believes that the weakness in the latter stock since the deal was announced has been overdone. The analyst thinks that the combined company will have a stronger balance sheet and be better positioned for growth going forward than Energy Transfer alone,. She blames the decline of Energy Transfer's stock on the lack of an IDR reset/buyout to address cost of capital concerns, but she notes that the combined entity will have a lower cost of capital than Energy Transfer alone, while an IDR reset/buyout could still be added in the future. She keeps a $48 price target and an Outperform rating on Energy Transfer.

The analyst lowered his price target for PennTex to $18 from $20.

Energy Transfer Equity likely to benefit from Trump victory, says Bernstein
