Hess announces sale of EOR assets in the Permian Basin to Occidental Petroleum

Hess Corporation (HES) announced it has entered into an agreement to sell its interests in enhanced oil recovery assets in the Permian Basin to Occidental Petroleum Corporation (OXY) for a total consideration of $600M, effective June. Proceeds from the sale will be used to fund the company's strong growth opportunities. The transaction consists of the following Hess-operated assets: the Seminole-San Andres Unit and the Seminole Gas Processing Plant in Texas; the West Bravo Dome C02 field in New Mexico; and a 9.9% non-operated interest in the Bravo Dome unit in New Mexico. These assets produced an average of 8,200 barrels of oil equivalent per day in 2016 net to Hess. The agreement is subject to regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions and is expected to close August 1.

DOWNGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Ambarella (AMBA) downgraded to Sector Weight from Overweight at Pacific Crest with analyst Brad Erickson citing concern the company's largest customer DJI may have dual-sourced. After speaking with DJI customer service, Erickson believes Ambarella may not be the video processing provider for Spark, the $499 drone launched last week by DJI. 2. Buffalo Wild Wings (BWLD) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at Wedbush with analyst Nick Setyan saying the upcoming proxy vote is irrelevant as neither management's strategy nor Marcato Capital's plan offer a viable solution to the company's ongoing deterioration in fundamentals. 3. Valero (VLO) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Benny Wong citing refining headwinds and high exposure to RIN prices. 4. AutoZone (AZO) and O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY) were downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Wedbush. 5. Whiting Petroleum (WLL) was downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs, while Cimarex Energy (XEC) and Hess Corp. (HES) were downgraded to Neutral from Buy.

Hess Corp. remains a top pick in E&P at BofA/Merrill

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Zynga (ZNGA) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at BofA/Merrill with analyst Justin Post citing stronger engagement that is driving bookings growth. 2. Hess Corp. (HES) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Wells Fargo citing what it sees as Hess' "growth potential, strong operating cost performance, balance sheet strength, exploration upside and current discounted valuation." Wells expects the company to grow at a compound annual rate of 4.9% through 2019. 3. CF Industries (CF) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS with analyst John Roberts saying the stock is a top pick on the eventual agricultural recovery. Limited nitrogen capacity coming post 2017 and the dividend yield position the stock for upside, Roberts tells investors in a research note. The analyst keeps a $33 price target for the shares. 4. TreeHouse (THS) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Stephens. 5. Scripps Networks (SNI) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Alexia Quadrani citing the 10% pullback in the shares over the past month. The analyst notes Scripps offered "strong commentary" on ad revenue and is now included in Hulu Live. She keeps an $83 price target for the shares.
