SandRidge Mississippian, Permian trusts downgraded by RBC

|About: SandRidge Mississippian Tru... (SDR)|By:, SA News Editor

SandRidge Mississippian Trust II (SDR -3.2%) is downgraded to Underperform with an $11 price target, down from $16, at RBC on concerns about an 18% Q/Q dive in production despite 20 gross new wells drilled in Q3, which the firm says is far below even the most pessimistic views.

The firm also lowers SandRidge Permian Trust (PER -3%) to Underperform, with the price target cut to $14 from $17, believing the time has come to look beyond the attractive yield at the risks associated with the lack of communication, operational transparency and production trend visibility.
