Will Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L.P.(BIP) Cash in on a Renewal of American Growth? – Kinder Morgan Inc (KMI), Weyerhaeuser Company (WY)

But one huge opportunity that Brookfield Infrastructure Partners L.P.(NYSE:BIP) has highlighted recently involves natural gas, with both pipelines and storage facilities attracting the company’s attention. With its holdings in the Natural Gas Pipeline Company of America, which also involves Kinder Morgan Inc (NYSE:KMI) as a 20% investor, Brookfield has a huge position in the U.S. storage market. Although up-and-coming midstream MLP Energy Transfer Partners LP (NYSE:ETP) has almost 75 billion cubic feet of storage and is growing fast, Brookfield’s 300 billion cubic feet represents about 7% of the total U.S. capacity.

Timberland has also been a growth area for Brookfield. With the housing market having rebounded, industry giant Weyerhaeuser Company (NYSE:WY) is getting a big boost from the rising demand for wood. Like Weyerhaeuser Company (NYSE:WY), Brookfield has its timber assets located strategically in areas near the coast, making them more readily available for export.

For Brookfield to improve, it needs to work to turn more of its revenue into profits. Although the company’s unusual structure makes P/E multiples somewhat misleading, Brookfield nevertheless has to find a way to get earnings to catch up with its stock price if it wants to get closer to perfection.
