07:51 EDTETEEnergy Transfer Equity weakness creates buying opportunity, says Wells Fargo
After meeting with ETE's (ETE) management, Wells Fargo says that, in a worst case scenario, an acquisition of Williams (WMB) would not materially impact ETE's growth. However, the firm thinks the merger could boost the company's results if it can extract commercial synergies from the deal. Wells says that ETE wants to carry out the merger in order to boost its growth in 2019 and beyond. But ETE also believes that it could add $3B-$5B of additional organic growth projects if it acquires Williams, while generating more cash flow from Williams' existing projects, according to the firm.
