12:26 EDTKSU, CNIRails advance after Goldman says rate of volume declines improving
Shares of railroad operators are advancing after Goldman Sachs moved its Rails coverage view to Attractive from Neutral. WHAT'S NEW: In a note to investors, Goldman Sach's Tom Kim and team said while rail volumes continue to contract, the rate of change has begun to improve and the firm sees this as an early inflection indicator. The negatives in the rail sector appear to be well known as the sector has been under "significant" selling pressure since peaking in the fourth quarter of 2014, added Goldman Sachs. The firm sees structural improvement in the profitability of the rail sector as operating margins for 2015 are estimated to have expanded to 35% from 29% in 2010. Goldman thinks the negative earnings per share revisions cycle for rails is over and that investor expectations are achievable. The firm sees earnings as a catalyst for sector performance and believes carloads will grow again in 2016 with 4% year-over-year growth in intermodal. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Kim upgraded Canadian Pacific (CP) to Buy from Neutral and reiterated its Buy rating on Union Pacific (UNP). The firm sees upside potential for Canadian National Railway (CNI), CSX (CSX), Kansas City Southern (KSU), and Norfolk Southern Corporation (NSC), but it maintained its Neutral ratings on those names as the firm expects these stocks to trade in-line with its broader Transportation coverage universe. PRICE ACTION: In afternoon trading, shares of Canadian Pacific are up nearly 3%, while Union Pacific is higher by almost 1%. CSX is advancing 2.2%, while Canadian National Railway, Kansas City Southern, and Norfolk Southern Corporation are each up over 1%.

13:01 EDTEPDAnalyst says Sanchez Energy's asset sale to strengthen liquidity position
Shares of Sanchez Energy (SN) surged after the company said it plans to sell certain Eagle Ford Shale midstream assets to Sanchez Production Partners (SPP) for $345M. WHAT'S NEW: Sanchez Energy said it reached an agreement with Sanchez Production Partners under which SPP will acquire and operate certain midstream assets located on the Western part of its Catarina asset in the Eagle Ford Shale in South Texas for cash consideration of roughly $345M. As part of the divestiture, Sanchez Energy said it will sell roughly 150 miles of midstream gathering lines and associated midstream infrastructure concentrated in four gathering and processing facilities. The deal is expected to close in October. In a statement, Sanchez Energy chief Executive Officer Tony Sanchez III said the midstream sale "highlights our ability to capture the full spectrum of value in our asset base, raise capital outside of traditional markets and improve our financial flexibility." Sanchez Energy also confirmed this morning that its third quarter 2015 average production will "likely meet or exceed" the high end of the previous guidance range of 46,000-50,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. The company said it is still confident that it can build a 20-30 well bank toward its 50-well per year drilling commencement at Catarina at its current rig count. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Affiliates of Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD) and Reliance Holding USA sold off pipelines and other midstream assets in the Eagle Ford to Enterprise Product Partners (EPD) in July for $2.15B to be paid in two installments, and Matador Resources (MTDR) recently sold off similar assets to EnLink Midstream Partners (ENLK) for $143M. Meanwhile, Sanchez Production Partners said it will recommend that the board of directors of its general partner approve a plan to start distributions at an initial annualized rate of $1.60 per share. STREET RESEARCH: Northland Capital Markets analyst Jeff Grampp said that the proceeds from the announced asset sale will strengthen Sanchez Energy's "already meaningful" liquidity position and set up the company well for opportunistic acquisitions. The analyst said that even though the company previously discussed the possible sale of midstream assets, the move's value capture is "meaningfully positive" and underappreciated by the market. Grampp reiterated an Outperform rating and $12 price target on the stock. PRICE ACTION: In midday trading, Sanchez Energy is up 5.82% to $5.64 and Sanchez Production Partners is up 88.89% to $8.84.
