Stifel downgraded Green Plains Partners LP (NASDAQ: GPP) from Buy to Hold with a price target of $22 (unchanged). The downgrade was tied to valuation.

Analyst Selman Akyol said, "Green Plains Partners, LP posted its 3Q16 results in line with our estimates and reported Adjusted EBITDA of $16.8 million against our estimate of $17.0 million and the consensus Street estimate of $16.1 million. Results on the quarter were driven by record ethanol production volumes at Green Plains Inc. (GPRE, $26.35) and given the recently closed Abengoa acquisition we expect volumes to ramp through 4Q16 and into 2017. We continue to like the GPP story and believe investors stand to benefit from the partnership’s fee-based cash flows. With that said, we believe units are approaching a full valuation given GPP’s current outlook and thus we are lowering our rating to Hold from Buy."
