Plains Plans To Start Boosting Its Distributions Materially Over the Next Few Years

Stephen Ellis Sector Strategist

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Stephen Ellis |

We believe the returns from Plains All American's pipeline network have been materially negatively impacted by the oversupply of Permian oil takeaway capacity, which we expect to persist for years. In a bit of a setback, Plains will see higher Permian volumes in 2022, but the financial benefit will be more muted as the volumes are moving from fully owned assets to joint-venture assets, meaning Plains will only see a fraction of the earned tariffs. As a result, improved operating leverage from higher Permian volumes is essentially shelved until 2023. Still, Plains is pursuing a balanced capital allocation approach, including a "no regrets" growth capital investment framework and a thoughtful distribution of its remaining excess cash flow.

Style is an investment factor that has a meaningful impact on investment risk and returns. Style is calculated by combining value and growth scores, which are first individually calculated.

High-growth stocks tend to represent the technology, healthcare, and communications sectors. They rarely distribute dividends to shareholders, opting for reinvestment in their businesses. More value-oriented stocks tend to represent financial services, utilities, and energy stocks. These are established companies that reliably pay dividends.
