Ferrellgas Partners (FGP)

Read MoreHide Full Article

Ferrellgas Partners (FGP), since the beginning of fiscal 2011, has already made four acquisitions. However, the partnership's results in the second quarter continued the past trend of poor earnings.

Moreover, we believe the absence of distribution growth for more than a decade has led the partnership to trade at a discount to its propane peers. We do not see any catalyst to change this situation in the near-term, which should affect the unit price going forward.

We also see increased competition for Ferrellgas from within and outside the industry. Thus, we have an Underperform recommendation on the stock.
