YTD returns

Despite recent gains, Williams Companies is still trading below the levels at the beginning of 2017. It has lost 3.1% YTD (year-to-date). In comparison, Williams Companies’ peers, TransCanada (TRP) and Enterprise Products Partners (EPD) have risen 6.0% and 2.6%. AMLP has gained 0.2% in 2017.

Williams Companies’ underperformance relative to AMLP can be attributed to the sharp decline in its stock prices following its financial reorganization announcement. The announcement included removal of IDRs from Williams Partners’ capital structure, conversion of the economic GP (general partner) interest in Williams Partners to non-economic GP interest, and Williams Partners’ distribution cut. The measures are negative for Williams Companies in the short run. However, the company expects to benefit from the measures in the long run.
