Should SandRidge Energy (SD) Be On Your Radar Now? - Tale of the Tape

KeyBanc lowered its rating on SandRidge Energy (NYSE: SD) from Buy to Hold.

KeyBanc said, "In a general sense, we view the move to sell an oily conventional asset into a very receptive marketplace as a savvy and opportunistic move, especially in cases in which capital can be deployed to higher return horizontal resource plays with better EURs and a large inventory of drilling locations with the ability to prove-up oily reserves. In this instance, however, we do not see SD as being in such a position, as the ultimate returns and oil/liquids mix of the Mississippian remains an open question and generally is inferior to Permian returns."

SandRidge Energy closed at $6.48 on Wednesday.
