Image Shown: A look at Kinder Morgan's massive oil & gas infrastructure operations that crisscross North America. The natural gas midstream giant is selling its Canadian segment by divesting its 70% equity stake in Kinder Morgan Canada and the US portion of the Cochin pipeline to Pembina Pipeline Corporation (PBA).

We like Kinder Morgan because it's one of the few midstream firms actually targeting free cash flow generation instead of focusing on distributable cash flow, which we see as a deeply flawed metric (not taking growth-related capital expenditures into account completely misses the picture in our view). The company’s natural gas assets in the US are irreplaceable and its pipelines transport ~40% of US natural gas according to Kinder Morgan.
