07:09 EDTCHK, EXLPChesapeake sees receiving over $700M in assets sale proceeds in 2H
During Q2, Chesapeake (CHK) received total proceeds of approximately $675M from the sale of noncore assets, including $362M of net proceeds from the sale of compression assets to Exterran Partners, L.P. (EXLP). In the 2014 second half, Chesapeake expects to receive more than $700M in proceeds from various asset sales that have closed, or are underway. These transactions are expected to include noncore E&P assets in southwestern Pennsylvania, South Central Oklahoma, East Texas and South Texas, as well as additional compression assets and other miscellaneous real estate and equipment. Chesapeake continues to pursue opportunities to high-grade its portfolio while focusing on assets that best align with its strategy of profitable growth from captured resources. The company believes its targeted asset dispositions will be value-accretive and enable it to further reduce financial complexity and lower overall leverage.

06:45 EDTCHKChesapeake upgraded to Buy from Underperform at Sterne Agee CRT
Sterne Agee CRT upgraded Chesapeake (CHK) two notches to Buy from Underperform and increased its price target to $13 from $9. The firm said shares are now oversold and the "short" call is now crowded. Sterne Agee CRT said management is working to mitigate the near-term liquidity drain and is aggressively pursuing alternatives to keep pipeline counter-party Williams Companies (WMB) whole on its contract, which could reset shares higher. The firm said the focus should be on Chesapeake's absolute liquidity and raised estimates to reflect slightly improved NGL fundamentals. Sterne Agee CRT recommends trading oriented accounts cover shorts and go long as any catalyst may drive a short squeeze rally in shares.
