18:20 EDTCLRShell CEO says Opec production has pressured shale companies, FT reports
In an interview with the Financial Times, Shell (RDS.A, RDS.B) CEO Ben van Beurden said Opec's decision not to cut production has sent a "powerful signal... to shale oil companies as well as their financiers that they cannot forget the price risk. The industry will remember it for some time." The CEO noted that industry efforts to boost efficiency and cut costs should keep production going for "a while to come... until the sweet spots start running out." Publicly traded companies in the space include Chevron (CVX), Anadarko Petroleum (APC), Exxon Mobil (XOM), BP (BP), Marathon Oil (MRO), BHP Billiton (BHP), ConocoPhillips (COP), Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD), EOG Resources (EOG), Concho (CXO), Whiting Petroleum (WLL), and Continental Resources (CLR).

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.
