KeyBanc initiated coverage on CenterPoint Energy (NYSE: CNP) with a Buy rating and a price target of $28.00. Analyst Matt Tucker said the company's plans to form a midstream MLP with OGE (NYSE: OGE) justifies revaluations of shares.

"While we acknowledge and think it is widely understood that the unequal ownership structure of the proposed MLP will likely lead to a few cents of dilution in 2013 and 2014, we believe investors are willing to focus on the stronger long-term growth potential and near-term valuation and balance sheet aspects of the MLP deal," said Tucker
