14:14 EDTBHIWeatherford spikes after cancelling share offering
Shares of Weatherford (WFT) spiked Tuesday after the company cancelled plans for a public share offering, saying it was "unwilling to sell securities at prices that do not reflect the value" created at the company. Several analysts weighed in on the news, appearing generally bullish on the company but disagreeing on whether Weatherford should focus on its own operations or continue to pursue acquisitions. FOCUS ON FUNDAMENTALS: Jefferies analyst Brad Handler reiterated his Buy rating and $13 price target on Weatherford shares, explaining that the capital increase plans would likely have gone towards buying Halliburton (HAL) drilling assets at an "unattractive" price point. Note that Halliburton is conducting various asset divestitures as part of its planned takeover of Baker Hughes (BHI), with Bloomberg reporting on September 14 that Weatherford had made a bid for the service portion of Halliburton's Sperry Drilling unit. In today's note, Handler acknowledged that the potential acquisition would add some "meaningful" synergies on paper, but he also highlighted the risk of further diluting Weatherford share value. Handler concluded that he is generally more comfortable with a Weatherford "that walks before it runs," adding that he hopes the company "continues to resist the temptation" of large acquisitions amid the current sector downturn. ACQUISITION POTENTIAL: Iberia analyst Robert MacKenzie said he is a buyer of Weatherford shares after Monday's 17% selloff prior to the capital raise cancellation last night. Although an acquisition by Weatherford is less likely without the funds from the public offering, it is still possible, "especially considering that no mention of backing away from their acquisition intent was made in the most recent press release," MacKenzie noted. However, Weatherford's press release announcing the capital raise specifically cited the need to pre-fund potential acquisitions, while its cancellation notice emphasized a focus on core businesses and efficient operations. Nevertheless, MacKenzie argued that Halliburton "remains a motivated seller" and called Weatherford the "most logical" candidate to pick up the company's previously-mentioned assets, saying the potentially transformative acquisition would make "tremendous sense." PRICE ACTION: Weatherford shares are up more than 8.5% to $9.13 in intraday trading after falling throughout yesterday's session on the company's initial decision to pursue a public offering.
