UBS maintained a Buy rating on Shell Midstream Partners, L.P. (NYSE: SHLX), and cut the price target to $47.00 (from $49.00), following the company's 3Q earnings report. SHLX reported Adj EBITDA of $68MM, well below estimates of $87mm and the $77mm reported in 2Q16.

Analyst Shneur Gershuni commented, "Consistent with our view that high growth drop-down MLPs will slow DPU growth and retain cash flow to self-finance growth, SHLX announced today that it expects to grow DPU at a 20% CAGR. This is down from the mid-20's it has been growing at, but still consistent with the "best in class" target. The slower DPU growth should increase coverage in '17e/'18e to 1.62x/1.48x from 1.56x/1.36x. Management indicated that it plans to drop $2.5bn-$2.9bn of assets over 2017 & 2018. We were estimating $2.45bn and have increased our estimate to $2.65bn. The somewhat messy 3Q result overshadows that SHLX remains on track to deliver both organic growth and growth through drops from its supportive GP, Royal Dutch Shell."
