Wrap – Week Ended 7/19/14

Print Friendly

YoYo market is engaged in the group pre quarter. After a nice bounce over the past week, the portfolios are resting about 4% under their all time highs reached at the end of June. 

Big news of last week was the WLL for KOG deal. Please see our write up of the deal in last Monday's post here.

and our wrap of the pro forma NewCo here.  Comments about take-unders aside (LOL), we very much thought the deal price and 100% stock for stock deal structure was appropriate and we've not sold a share of our long held KOG position (started buying in 2008). Thanks much to Lynn Peterson for education on the Bakken/Three Forks and the profits that came with it; you will be missed.

Thanks and have a great weekend.
