UBS maintains a 'Buy' on PetroLogistics LP (NYSE: PDH) price target of $15.50 (from $16.50).

Analyst, Gregg A. Goodnight, said, "PDH reported 2Q12 adjusted EPS of $0.46 were essentially inline with our $0.45 estimate. Propylene production was 310 million lbs. and the propylene-to-propane spread was 37.9¢/lb. vs. our estimates of 299 million lbs. and 38¢/lb., respectively...As a result of our lower propylene-to-propane spread expectations, we are reducing our 2012E EPS to $1.40 from $1.63. We are keeping our 2013E and 2014E EPS forecasts unchanged at this time...For 3Q12, we expect that the propylene-to-propane spread will fall to 26¢/lb. from our previous estimate of 35¢/lb. and the 3Q distribution will decline to $0.22/share from our prior outlook of $0.43/share."
