Barclays initiates coverage on Western Gas Equity Partners, LP (NYSE: WGP) with a Overweight. PT $35.00.

The firm comments, "We are initiating coverage of WGP with an OW rating and $35 price target: WGP is the general partner of Western Gas Partners (WES), which is a high-growth, low-risk MLP with a strong public market track record. We forecast that WGP will be able to grow distribution by 41% in 2013 and 30% in 2014 (Q4 exit rates), based on 15% and 10% exit rate growth at WES, implying 2.4x GP/LP leverage. Our $35 price target is based on a 12-month distribution run rate of $0.9338/unit and a target yield of 2.7%, which implies 17% upside versus WGP's current trading price."
