USA Compression Partners For Natural Gas

Today I'm reviewing an oil and gas equipment firm. It's a small-cap stock with market capital of between $200 million and $2 billion. Its name is USA Compression Partners  It's trading ticker symbol is USAC

USA Compression Partners LP provides natural gas compression services under term contracts with customers in the oil and gas industry, using natural gas compressor packages that it designs, engineers, owns, operates and maintains.

It serves oil companies; and independent producers, processors, gatherers, and transporters of natural gas and crude oil. USA Compression GP, LLC operates as the general partner of USA Compression Partners, LP. 

The company was formerly known as Compression Holdings, LP, and changed its name to USA Compression Partners, LP in June 2011. 

USA Compression Partners, LP was founded in 1998 and is headquartered in Austin, Texas.

I use three key data points gauge the value of any dividend equity or fund like USA Compression Partners LP: 

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

After those three, four more keys will finally unlock an equity or fund in which to invest.

However, those first three primary keys best tell whether a company has made, is making, and will make money. 

USAC Price

USA Compression Partners's price was $18.80 per share at Friday's market close. A year ago its price was $17.54 for a gain of $1.26 per share in the past year.  

Assuming USA Compression Partners price will trade between the range of $15.00 to $25.00 next year, its price could grow another $1.26 from $18.80 to $20.06 by April 2019. 

USAC Dividends

USA Compression Partners's most recent variable quarterly dividend was $0.525 paid yesterday, February 14th.  Total annual dividend paid in 2017 was $2.10 per share.  An expected repeat of the $2.10 amount for 2018 yields 11% at yesterdays stock price.

Gains For USAC?

The $1.26 estimated year over year price gain plus an anticipated dividend of  $2.10 makes a projected gross annual gain of $3.36, which will be reduced by the cost to trade these shares.
