Oil and Gas M&A's: A Glimpse Into The Future



September 16, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: RDC , KWKAQ , BOLT.DL

There has been quite a bit of merger and acquisition activity this past year. One of the biggest being the buyout of Petrohawk. M&As can be great news for companies and investors alike. Investors can potentially cash in if stocks spike, so why not start thinking about possible M&A targets. Investment U has some predictions, let’s see what they have to say.


Possible Targets

With the timing perfect for mergers and acquisitions, one has to wonder which companies are next. Here are a few possible targets for the bigger companies:

Rowan Companies (NYSE: RDC) recently sold LeTourneau Technologies to Joy Global. But some analysts think they may be an attractive takeover target themselves. However Rowan doesn’t feel the same.Quicksilver Resources (NYSE: KWK) provides services in the natural gas and inland oil industries. Lately the stock has been drilled, losing almost 40 percent since the end of July. Could be prime pickings for a large company with plenty of resources." Find additional targets here:
