Can Martin Midstream Partners Achieve Its Target Price Levels?

Valuation analysis

MMLP was trading at a distribution yield of 15.2% on December 6, 2017. This is higher than the one-year and five-year averages of 11.3% and 10.7%, respectively.

The partnership’s forward EV-to-EBITDA[1. enterprise value to earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization] multiple of 8.1x is below the five-year average of 10.0x.

Analysts’ recommendations

MMLP currently ranks fifth among MLPs in terms of upside potential. MMLP’s average target price of $19.20 implies an ~47% upside potential from its current price levels. However, the partnership could be less likely to achieve its target price levels considering its weak earnings, high commodity price exposure, and high leverage.
