Stock performance

Analyzing Cheniere Partners’ stock since December last year, we can see that it returned ~11%.

It had negative returns earlier on, as the graph above notes. Currently, it’s trading at levels higher than December.

Cheniere Energy Partners outperformed both the Energy Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLE)—the benchmark energy sector ETF, as well as the Alerian MLP ETF (AMLP)—the benchmark MLP (master limited partnership) ETF. However, its parent, Cheniere Energy (LNG), had superior price returns in the group. It gave ~16% positive returns since last December.

This shows that investors seem to be confident about Cheniere Energy Partners’ performance—despite weakness in commodity prices.

Although the company does face some uncertainties and risks, its “take-or-pay” contracts ensured firm grounding and positive growth prospects for Cheniere Energy Partners. We’ll discuss this in more detail later in this series.
