Winners Curse of Purchasing Anadarko.png

A quantitative analysis on the purchase of Anadarko by Occidental Petroleum.

Published by the Houston Business Journal

Article excerpt:

A deal at any price is not a deal worth pursuing. Occidental Petroleum (NYSE: OXY) and Anadarko Petroleum Corp. (NYSE: APC) have vastly different trend lines, and an overly leveraged purchase will pull Oxy in the wrong direction.

Previous to the announced deal, Anadarko stock hovered near its multiyear lows largely due to its five year $30 billion capital expenditure, resulting in 50 percent less proven reserves. During this same time period, Oxy spent $25 billion with a 50 percent production increase and a dividend payout six times larger than Anadarko.
