"By almost any metric, Hess (HES) sells at a discount to many peers, and to its historic valuation," Christopher Williams notes, in a Barron's piece applauding the company's shift towards becoming a pure E&P play. Asset sales could eventually bring as much as $7B which could find its way to shareholders in the form of buybacks, Williams adds. With Elliot Management keeping a close eye on things, HES could be poised for a nice run over the next two years.

    These kinds of statements (pumping up the stock) show up after the stock had run up a lot (50% this year in this case)! The articles are written to help the readers or someone else?

    And even better now they profess the company might buy the stock at these levels.
