ONEOK 'most obvious' candidate to consider deal like Williams, says Wells Fargo After Williams (WMB) announced a simplification deal with Williams Partners (WPZ) that is similar to Kinder Morgan's (KMI) rollup and Crestwood Equity's (CEQP) purchase of Crestwood Midstream (CMLP), Wells Fargo said it sees ONEOK (OKE) and ONEOK Partners (OKS) as the "most obvious" candidate likely to consider a similar deal. The firm believes other C-Corp/MLP pairs will be pushed to consider the merits of such transactions, but thinks the list of other candidates that really meet the criteria for such deals is short.
