Occidental Petroleum says on 'clear path to ehance value creation'

Occidental Petroleum Corporation (OXY) mailed a letter to shareholders in connection with definitive proxy materials it has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission in response to materials filed by Carl Icahn. The company said, "Occidental is on a clear path to enhance value creation through the pending acquisition of Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (APC) and the Company believes that its shareholders' interests would be best served by focusing on completion and integration of that acquisition. Mr. Icahn's own statements demonstrate that he does not understand or support the strategic and financial merits of the acquisition, and the Occidental Board believes that his Board nominees would interfere with the Company's ability to successfully integrate Anadarko's valuable assets and deliver on the promise of this acquisition at this critical juncture. Occidental's Board comprises ten highly qualified directors, nine of whom are independent, and all of whom bring meaningful expertise across a diverse range of backgrounds in areas key to the Company's business. Occidental does not believe that another director election approximately ten weeks after the last one, in the middle of completing and integrating a large and complex acquisition, is in the best interests of Occidental or its shareholders."

Buy
Western Gas Partners initiated with a Buy at Mizuho
Mizuho analyst Gabriel Moreen started Western Gas Partners (WES) with a Buy rating and $34 price target. The analyst's base case scenario is for Occidental Petroleum (OXY) to divest most or all of Anadarko's (APC) 55.5% ownership of Western Gas Partners common units. However, there is no reason Western Gas "cannot succeed on its own two feet," Moreen tells investors in a research note. The analyst sees visibility to "attractive" distribution growth through 2022.

Equal Weight
Occidental Petroleum downgraded to Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley downgraded Occidental Petroleum (OXY) to Equal Weight from Overweight. Analyst Devin McDermott believes covering the 2020 dividend at current oil prices will require meaningful capital expenditure cuts, even though the Anadarko (APC) deal looks accretive to cash flow. Oil price volatility presents a key risk given that the company's pro forma leverage is among the highest of any company he covers, said McDermott, who cut his price target on Occidental shares to $55 from $69.

Occidental Petroleum (OXY) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst Devin McDermott saying he believes covering the 2020 dividend at current oil prices will require meaningful capital expenditure cuts, even though the Anadarko (APC) deal looks accretive to cash flow. 3. International Paper (IP) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Stephens with analyst Mark Connelly saying RISI decided to cut the price of containerboard $10 "just three days after investors breathed a sigh of relief on encouraging supply-demand fundamentals." 4. Shopify (SHOP) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Roth Capital with analyst Darren Aftahi saying he remains positive on its underlying business prospects following the company's Unite conference and investor day but not on the stock's valuation, which has increased in the wake of the event. 5. Spotify (SPOT) downgraded to Underperform from In Line at Evercore ISI with analyst Kevin Rippey saying the recent rally in the stock "reflects an overly optimistic view" on the company's gross margin path and potential label negotiation outcomes.

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Activision Blizzard (ATVI) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Stephens with analyst Jeff Cohen saying recent reporting from Kotaku about issues in the Call of Duty pipeline have begun to make bull case for Activision shares "look like less of a certainty." 2.
