Magellan Midstream Partners: Attractive, But Risky

Without much doubt, Magellan Midstream Partners has a wide economic moat due to the cost advantages stemming from its pipeline. However, the company is also facing major risks like high debt levels and the threat of switching to alternative energy sources. If I had to choose between being bearish and bullish, I would rather choose the latter, but Magellan Midstream Partners is not a bargain right now.
