Diamondback Energy to acquire Energen in all-stock transaction

Diamondback Energy (FANG) and Energen (EGN) announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement under which Diamondback will acquire Energen in an all-stock transaction valued at approximately $9.2B, including Energen's net debt of $830 million as of June 30, 2018. The consideration will consist of 0.6442 shares of Diamondback common stock for each share of Energen common stock, representing an implied value to each Energen shareholder of $84.95 per share based on the closing price of Diamondback common stock on August 13, 2018. The transaction was unanimously approved by the Board of Directors of each company."This transaction represents a transformational moment for both Diamondback and Energen shareholders as they are set to benefit from owning the premier large cap Permian independent with industry leading production growth, operating efficiency, margins and capital productivity supporting an increasing capital return program. The Energen team has done an outstanding job assembling a portfolio of Tier One acreage in both the Midland and Delaware basins, which, when combined with Diamondback's current portfolio, will present an extended runway for Diamondback's record of best-in-class execution and low-cost operations. This transaction also adds critical mass for driving capital efficiencies in what is now truly becoming a manufacturing business. I expect the pro forma company to be able to grow at industry leading rates while returning capital at a competitive yield," stated Travis Stice, Chief Executive Officer of Diamondback.

WPX Energy downgraded to Neutral from Conviction Buy at Goldman Sachs
Goldman Sachs analyst John Nelson downgraded WPX Energy (WPX) to Neutral and removed the shares from his firm's Conviction List. The analyst believes the company's secular growth outlook remains intact and cites valuation for the downgrade. WPX's valuation is less differentiated at current share levels, and investors should rotate into Diamondback Energy (FANG) and PDC Energy (PDCE), which offer greater upside potential, Nelson tells investors in a research note. The analyst has a $21 price target for WPX shares.

Diamondback Energy pullback offers buying opportunity, says SunTrust
SunTrust analyst Neal Dingmann kept his Buy rating and $165 price target on Diamondback Energy, saying the 7% selloff in the stock price relative to the 2% gain in the Oil&Gas Exploration Sector ETF offers a buying opportunity for investors. The analyst cites the company's recently announced transportation oil agreements to the Gulf Coast to go along with its industry leading operations, adding that 70% of its production will have a fixed discount to Gulf pricing by the end of Q3. Dingmann also states that Diamondback Energy continues to generate industry leading well returns thanks to its strong rates and low operating costs.

Diamondback Energy price target raised to $177 from $170 at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Mark Lear raised his price target for Diamondback Energy to $177 after a new slide presentation provided detail on the company's new marketing arrangements that assure 70% of gross projected volumes move to the Gulf Coast in the second half of 2018 and 2019. The analyst notes that the deal locks in $5.5 per barrel better pricing in the second half of 2018 and $4 per barrel better in the first half of 2019 compared to his prior estimates. Diamondback's transportation agreements not only assure volume growth through 2019 but also lock in better pricing relative to Midland-Cushing basis futures, Lear tells investors in a research note.He keeps a Buy rating on the shares.
