TransCanada Corporation (USA) (TRP), Enbridge Inc (USA) (ENB): Myths You’ve Been Told About the Keystone XL Pipeline

It’s becoming increasingly apparent the Canadian crude will reach the marketplace. That’s great news for upstream producers like Suncor Energy Inc. (USA) (NYSE:SU), Canadian Natural Resource Ltd (USA) (NYSE:CNQ), and Cenovus Energy Inc (USA) (NYSE:CVE). Investors can be confident these names will receive the highest price for their production.

Foolish bottom line

Just as a follow up to my final point, it’s also puzzling how much Keystone dominates the discussion whenever you talk about the investment merits of TransCanada Corporation (USA) (NYSE:TRP). Given the media coverage, you would think the entire future of the company hinges on this one project. But TransCanada has a big portfolio of liquid and natural gas pipelines with lots of other growth opportunities. In fact before Keystone, the company was a sleepy old utility. Investors shouldn’t lose sight of that.
