08:32 EDTBHIMorgan Stanley says Halliburton antitrust story mostly noise
Morgan Stanley analyst Ole Slorer views yesterday's Bloomberg article suggesting Halliburton's (HAL) acquisition of Baker Hughes (BHI) faces antitrust hurdles in the U.S. as mostly noise. Slorer spoke with an antitrust expert and concluded the article summarized well known facts and came away with a more constructive view of the deal. The analyst said Halliburton's "exceptionally diligent" handling of the transaction has minimized risks. Slorer's team raised Halliburton's price target to $62 from $60 and Baker Hughes' to $88 from $86 and maintains Overweight ratings on both stocks.

06:39 EDTSLBEuro, U.S. oil and gas groups to find tough competition in Iran, WSJ says
European and U.S. oil and gas firms drawn to Iran as sanctions lessen can expect not only opportunities, but also Iranian companies offering tough competition or joint ventures, the Wall Street Journal reports. Though no Iran-based companies have the clout of firms such as Exxon Mobil (XOM) or Schlumberger (SLB), companies that can take on engineering tasks are emerging and growing in Iran, the report says. If the Iran nuclear agreement comes into effect and sanctions are lifted against Iran sometime soon, those Iranian companies will be well positioned to compete for tens of billions of dollars worth of service contracts, the report adds. Other publicly traded companies in the space include BP (BP), Chevron (CVX), ConocoPhillips (COP), Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) and Total (TOT). Reference Link
