EPS expected to be flat

However, the 3Q17 expected EPS is 7% higher than its 2Q17 EPS. Kinder Morgan beat its EPS estimate in only three of the last ten quarters. It met estimates in two quarters while missed its EPS estimates in five out of the last ten quarters.

Earnings drivers

Lower Eagle Ford volumes may continue to hamper KMI’s Natural Gas Pipelines segment’s earnings in 3Q17. On the other hand, improved commodity prices compared to the year-ago quarter may positively impact its CO2 segment’s performance for the quarter. Expansion projects should contribute to the company’s earnings for the quarter.
