Energen price target raised to $56 amid activist agitations at Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Drew Venker noted that Corvex recently increased its stake in Energen (EGN) while the Wall Street Journal said Elliott Management has also acquired a stake and also supports a sale of the company. The list of potential public acquirers that could pay a typical 30%-40% premium and still see a deal for Energen be accretive include Concho Resources (CXO), Diamondback Energy (FANG), EOG Resources (EOG) and Occidental Petroleum (OXY), Venker tells investors. Separate from that hypothetical deal analysis, the analyst revised his 2018 estimates for a higher oil mix and raised his price target on Energen shares to $56 from $52, while keeping an Equal Weight rating on the stock.

Occidental Petroleum upgraded to Conviction Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst Brian Singer upgraded Occidental Petroleum to Buy and added the shares to his firm's Americas Conviction List. The analyst has greater confidence for the sustainability of the company's dividend at a $50 per barrel WTI oil price. The current valuation suggests an "attractive" 4.5% dividend yield, Singer tells investors in a research note. He sees Occidental's 2018 production likely to exceed its 5%-8% long-term growth range.
