Energy Transfer Equity’s weekly performance

Energy Transfer Equity (ETE), which directly and indirectly owns the general partner of Energy Transfer Partners (ETP) and Sunoco Logistics Partners (SXL), rose 2.4% last week. At the same time, the Alerian MLP ETF (AMLP), which comprises 25 energy MLPs, was down 1.3%.

ETE’s gain last week could be due to the rise in its stock price after a federal judge denied tribes’ appeal to block the Dakota Access Pipeline. The pipeline is near completion.
