2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

El Paso Pipeline Partners, L.P. is a Delaware master limited partnership (MLP) formed in November 2007 by El Paso Corporation. The Company owns and operates natural gas transportation pipelines and storage assets. It holds a 100 percent ownership interest in the approximately 800-mile WIC (Wyoming Interstate Company, Ltd.) interstate natural gas pipeline system. The Company also owns a 58 percent general partner interest in CIG (Colorado Interstate Gas Company) and a 25 percent general partner interest in SNG(Southern Natural Gas Company). Its WIC system competes with other interstate and intrastate pipelines for deliveries to multiple-connection customers. The Company's CIG system serves two major markets, an on-system market, consisting of utilities and other customers located along the Front Range of the U.S. Rocky Mountains in Colorado and Wyoming, and an off-system market, consisting of the transportation of U.S. Rocky Mountain natural gas production from multiple supply basins to users accessed through interconnecting pipelines in the Midwest, southwest, California and the Pacific northwest. SNG is an interstate natural gas pipeline system with approximately 7,600 miles of pipeline with a design capacity of approximately 3.7 Bcf/d. Each of these businesses faces varying degrees of competition from other pipelines and LNG facilities, as well as from alternative energy sources. The Company's customers consist of natural gas distribution and industrial companies, electric generation companies, natural gas producers, other natural gas pipelines and natural gas marketing and trading companies. It intends to increase its cash distributions over time by enhancing the value of its transportation and storage assets by providing outstanding customer service, focusing on increasing utilization, efficiency and cost control in its operations, pursuing strategic asset acquisitions from third parties. Its pipeline systems and storage facilities operate under tariffs approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).
