08:32 EDTHALMorgan 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.

07:20 EDTHALHalliburton has 90% upside potential over 3 years, says Citi
Citi analyst Scott Gruber believes regulatory approval for Halliburton's (HAL) proposed acquisition of Baker Hughes (BHI) is a "high probability event." Halliburton's buyback potential post-acquisition looks significant, Gruber tells investors in a research note. He estimates $5.00 of pro forma earnings per share for Halliburton in 2018, suggesting 90% upside potential for shares over the next three years. The analyst notes that applying a 16 times earnings multiple yields a $78 share price. He keeps a Buy rating on Halliburton with a $54 price target. The oil services company closed yesterday up 75c to $40.74 after reporting Q2 results.
