Morningstar Analyst On Canada Pension Plan Weighing Bid For Talisman: 'Not A Natural Fit'


Speaking to Benzinga about rumors that Canada Pension Plan is weighing a bid for Talisman Energy Inc. (NYSE: TLM), Morningstar Analyst David Meats said that it doesn’t look like a natural fit for CPP.

He explained that Talisman has a joint venture with Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Co. (NYSE: SHI), and he’s not sure how impressed Sinopec would be to partner with CPP.

“That company values not just the share in assets, but also the partnership with Talisman from a knowledge-transfer point-of-view,” he said.
