Kinder Morgan Energy Partners announced it has received a long-term transportation agreement from NOVA Chemicals Corporation to transport ethane and ethane-propane mixtures from the prolific Utica shale area through its previously announced Utica To Ontario Pipeline Access project, which is currently in a binding open season that began Sept. 5, 2014, and will close on Oct. 6, 2014. As part of the UTOPIA project, Kinder Morgan Cochin will develop, construct, own and operate a 240-mile, 12-inch diameter pipeline from Harrison County, Ohio, to Kinder Morganís Cochin Pipeline near Riga, Michigan, where the company would then move product eastward to Windsor, Ontario, Canada. UTOPIA would have an initial 50,000 barrels per day of capacity, which is expandable to more than 75,000 bpd. The approximately $500M pipeline project is expected to be in service by early 2018 with the receipt of timely permitting and regulatory approvals.

12:29 EDTSNDKEarnings Preview: Several analysts positive on Micron ahead of Q4 report
Micron (MU) is expected to report fourth quarter earnings after the close on Thursday, September 25, with a conference call scheduled for 4:30 pm ET. Micron manufactures semiconductor devices, principally DRAM, NAND Flash and NOR Flash memory. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 81c on revenue of $4.15B. The consensus range is 66c-$1.03 for EPS on revenue of $4.05B-$4.3B, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: On June 23, Micron reported third quarter EPS of 79c, compared to the 70c consensus estimate of analysts. Micron's quarterly revenue of $3.98B beat expectations for $3.89B. Revenues for both DRAM and NAND Flash products were down slightly for the quarter compared to the prior quarter. The companyís overall consolidated gross margin of 34% for the third quarter was consistent with the second quarter, as mix-related decreases in average selling prices were essentially offset by corresponding decreases in manufacturing costs. STREET RESEARCH: On the day after its last report, Needham upgraded Micron to Strong Buy from Buy and raised its price target for the shares to $50 from $40. The firm said then that it expected NAND gross margins to improve in 2015 and recommended investors look past the company's Q4 margin guidance. On July 31, Goldman and Sterne Agee issued competing views on how comments from Samsung could impact Micron. On that day, Sterne Agee reported that Samsung said its DRAM bit growth in the second half of 2014 would be limited, while its 2015 bit growth will drop compared to this year. The firm saw the guidance as "a major positive" for Micron and SanDisk (SNDK) and kept Buy ratings on both. However, Goldman said Samsung's increased DRAM bit supply growth forecast was an incremental negative for Micron. Goldman continues to have a Neutral rating on shares of Micron. More recently, Sterne Agee said Micron's stock has lagged due to concerns about potentially weaker Q4 DRAM prices and worries about NAND seasonality. The firm thinks these concerns are misplaced and continues to view Micron as a beneficiary of industry consolidation over the long-term. The firm keeps a $40 price target and Buy rating on Micron. Wedbush said it expects Micron's Q4 results to beat consensus expectations and for the company to provide upbeat commentary. The firm thinks that investor sentiment towards the stock has stalled on concerns about unfavorable DRAM supply/demand dynamics in 2015. However, Wedbush remains bullish on memory market dynamics heading into 2015 and keeps a $37 price target and Outperform rating on the shares. UBS believes DRAM and NAND average selling price trends continue to be favorable for Micron in the near to medium term and that the company should report Q4 EPS and revenue that are in line with consensus or better. The firm maintains its Buy rating on Micron and raised its price target on the stock to $36 from $35 ahead of tonight's Q4 report. PRICE ACTION: Since the day after last quarter's report, shares of Micron have advanced about 1%. Ahead of tonight's report, Micron was down over 2% to $31.54 in afternoon trading.
