Whiting Petroleum Corp. Analyst Notes
On July 13, 2014, Whiting Petroleum Corp. (Whiting) announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Kodiak in a transaction valued at $6.0 billion. The combined company is expected to create the largest Bakken/Three Forks producer with its leading oil-weighted platform which can drive meaningful production and operational synergies through complementary acreage positions. In addition, the all-stock transaction enhances the combined company's scale, providing a robust credit profile and improved financial flexibility. Whiting Chairman, CEO and President James J. Volker commented, "We believe this transaction represents a significant opportunity for both Whiting and Kodiak shareholders to benefit from the strength of our combined company. The addition of Kodiak's complementary acreage position and substantial inventory of high return drilling locations will provide the opportunity to drive significant value growth for both Whiting and Kodiak shareholders through an acceleration in drilling and increase in operational efficiencies."

Valero Energy Corporation Analyst Notes
On July 14, 2014, Valero Energy Corporation (Valero Energy) announced that it expects a Q2 2014 income from continuing operations in the range of $1.10 to $1.25 per share. The Company also expects to report a loss from discontinued operations of $63 million, or $0.12 per share, related to a non-cash charge associated with recognizing an asset retirement obligation for the Aruba refinery. Refining segment operating income for Q2 2014 is anticipated to be higher compared with Q2 2014 due to higher throughput volumes, as well as wider discounts on sour crude oil and certain types of North American light crude oil. The Company will host a conference call on July 30, 2014, following its earnings release which will be published earlier that day.
