13:21 EDTMUR, PSX, HES, COPHess trades higher after Murphy Oil spin-off news
Hess (HES) is trading up almost 4% in mid-day trading after industry peer Murphy Oil (MUR) announced it will unlock value by spinning off its U.S. fuel making business into a new company. Conoco-Phillips (COP) implemented a similar strategy earlier this year when it spun-off its fuels, petrochemicals and pipeline businesses into Phillips 66 (PSX). Hess, another integrated oil company, operates in two segments: exploration and production, and marketing and refining, making it a potential candidate for a spin off. On September 11, "Mad Money " host Jim Cramer referenced Hess on his show, noting that Hess' exploration and production side of the business is seen as unfocused. At mid-day, Hess is trading up 2.00, or 3.78%, to $54.94.
