UBS maintains a 'Neutral' on Magellan Midstream Partners (NYSE: MMP) price target raised $2 to $70.

Analyst, Ronald J. Barone, said, "MMP's 1Q12 EPU was in-line with consensus EPU of $0.94, but fell shy of UBSe $0.97 and guidance of $0.98. The miss was largely attributable to non-cash asset retirements (which do not affect distributable cash flow); DCF of $126MM beat our forecast $122MM. Pipelines segment operating margin declined ~1% on increased expenses. Terminals operating margin would have set a quarterly record even without a one-time $2MM insurance reimbursement it received."

"Despite the slight 1Q miss, we hold our 2012e EPU flat at $3.76 and increase our 2013-16 estimates to better reflect the economics of MMP’s project pipeline."
