3 Things Williams Companies' CEO Wants You to Know About What’s Coming Down the Pipeline

WMB

3 Things Williams Companies' CEO Wants You to Know About What’s Coming Down the Pipeline. Williams Companies(NYSE: WMB) recently delivered somewhat lackluster second-quarter results as its growth engine stalled out. However, while that quarter was bland, CEO Alan Armstrong made it clear on the accompanying conference call that the company is about to enter an exciting new phase, which makes him optimistic that it can make lots of money for shareholders in the coming years. We're about to hit the accelerator. While Williams' growth engine ran out of gas in the second quarter, Armstrong stated that "we are obviously looking forward to more dramatic growth in the second half of the year as the Atlantic Sunrise project nears completion, and producer activity on our systems in the Northeast and in Wyoming continues to ramp up." In fact, Williams is so unique that you'd be hard-pressed to find another S&P company where consensus estimates meet or exceed Williams' outlook for these key measures. What makes Williams stand out is that it's one of the few companies in the S&P 500 offering a high-yield dividend and a high growth rate.

This Analyst Likes Williams Companies Business Model

WMB

Williams Companies Inc (NYSE: WMB), a provider of large-scale infrastructure connecting natural gas and related products to end markets, is a pure play on domestic natural gas production with an attractive business model, according to Stifel.

Williams Companies' Growth Tank Ran Low in Q2, But a Refill Is on the Way

WMB

Natural gas pipeline giant Williams Companies(NYSE: WMB) and its MLPWilliams Partners(NYSE: WPZ) reported mixed second-quarter results after the close Wednesday. Cash flow, on the other hand, moved slightly higher thanks in part to lower interest expenses as a result of debt reduction. However, while both numbers underwhelmed in Q2, they should head much higher in the coming year because Williams has several expansion projects under way that should boost its bottom line. Williams Companies earnings dipped in Q2 mainly due to the sale of the assets in Williams Partners' natural gas liquids (NGL) and petrochemical (petchem) services segment, and some issues in its Atlantic-Gulf business unit:. The company has a growing slate of expansion projects under way that position it for much faster growth in the second half of 2018 and into next year. Because of that, the company looks like an attractive option for investors, especially when factoring in its well-covered 4.5%-yielding dividend, which the company still expects to increase by 10% to 15% next year.
