Dividend Growth Stocks News

21 straight quarterly hikes, with very strong 1.27X coverage. Management is calling for 10% distribution growth in 2018. Record earnings in Q1 '18, with multiple growth projects coming online in Q2-Q4 2018. Received multiple analyst upgrades and upward earnings estimate revisions in the past two months. No more IDR payouts, which frees up cash flow - GP swapped IDRs for common in a huge Q1 '18 deal.
