Another attractive play in the undervalued energy sector

MPLX LP (MPLX) controls natural gas gathering and processing assets in low-cost United States natural gas basins such as the Marcellus, the Permian and Utica. It also runs storage facilities and pipelines that run into Marathon Petroleum's (MPC) refinery complex. Marathon Petroleum is its majority shareholder with a 64% stake.

I'm a shareholder of MPLX, and I think it is currently an amazing opportunity for the folloiwing reasons:

1) It may potentially convert to a C-corp in the future.

2) Marathon Petroleum will potentially decrease its stake, allowing more publci ownership.

Strong cash distribution growth makes this MLP worth owning

Investment overview

With broad markets trading at premium valuations, my focus is on stocks or MLPs that have not shown significant upside year to date, but have a bright long-term outlook. Further, I am also focusing on stocks that are attractive from a dividend perspective even if the stock moves sideways in the foreseeable future.

One MLP that is likely to show strong cash distribution growth in the next two to three years and has been sideways so far this year is Antero Midstream Partners LP (AM). The stock currently trades at $31.5 and is just 1.9% higher year to
