Hi-Crush Partners (HCLP), or Hi- Crush, announced the entry into a new long-term frac sand purchase agreement between Hi-Crush Operating, a subsidiary of Hi-Crush, and Halliburton (HAL), which amends and restates the existing supply agreements between Hi-Crush and its affiliates and Halliburton.

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.

09:07 EDTHCLPHi-Crush Partners cuts distribution to 47.5c from 67.5c per unit
Hi-Crush Partners announced last night that the board of its general partner has declared a cash distribution of 47.5c per unit on all common and subordinated units. Hi-Crush paid distributions of $2.40 per unit on all common and subordinated units for 2014 and $0.675 per unit for the first quarter 2015. The distribution will be paid on August 14 to all common and subordinated unit holders of record on August 5. "Market conditions resulting from reduced industry sand demand and pricing worsened this quarter with further price reductions and even lower demand. Our management team, along with the Board of Directors, determined that a reduction to the quarterly cash distribution was prudent as we do not expect a rebound in sand demand or pricing until 2016. We are expecting the remainder of 2015 to be challenging with continued uncertainty in the level of well completion activity, which is a key driver of sand demand. We expect to maintain the distribution at this level for the remainder of 2015," said Laura Fulton, CFO.

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.
