07:36 EDTAPC, APAAnalysts still predicting mergers as oil slump drags on, WSJ reports
Bankers and analysts have been predicting a wave of merger activity will come almost since crude prices began to fall from over $100 a barrel, but the only big acquisition by an oil major so far has been Shell's (RDS.A) purchase of BG Group (BRGYY), said The Wall Street Journal, which added that analysts still believe deal-making is likely to return this year if prices continue to languish. With Chevron (CVX) set to report today and its big peers soon to follow, analysts are expecting the four biggest publicly traded Western oil companies to have their weakest combined profits since 1998, the Journal noted. The report noted that U.S. shale oil producers, such as Apache (APA) and Whiting Petroleum (WLL), were previously targeted though potential sellers were reluctant to accept offers as they hoped for a rebound in oil prices and potential buyers wondered if any deal struck would look expensive if crude prices fell further, but "both impediments are gone now," the Journal contends.

07:01 EDTPSXPhillips 66 reports Q4 adjusted EPS $1.31, consensus $1.25
We operated well in the quarter, as refining capacity utilization remained high and clean product yield increased," said Greg Garland, Chairman and CEO. "We also reached a significant milestone with the Sweeny Fractionator One and Clemens Caverns coming online. Solid execution in the fourth quarter generated $1.5 billion of cash from operations, and we returned over $700 million to shareholders through dividends and share repurchases." Phillips 66's Midstream fourth-quarter adjusted earnings were $42 million, a decrease of $49 million from the third quarter. Phillips 66's Transportation business generated adjusted earnings of $78 million during the fourth quarter, consistent with the third quarter. NGL adjusted losses were $2 million for the fourth quarter. The $34 million decrease from the prior quarter was largely driven by the timing of adjustments related to the tax extenders bill, signed in December, as well as additional costs associated with the Sweeny Hub.

10:14 EDTDVNDevon weakness on pipeline delay would be buying opportunity, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Scott Hanold noted that MEG Energy's sale of its 50% interest in the Access pipeline could now stretch into March, April or even May, which could raise concerns around Devon Energy, which will monetize its 50% ownership along with MEG's sale process. However, he still expects a transaction to occur and would be a buyer of Devon shares on any related weakness. Hanold keeps an Outperform rating on Devon Energy.
