QR Energy upgraded to Buy at Wunderlich

QRE Energy (QRE +2.8%) is upgraded to Buy from Hold with a $24.50 price target, up from $18, at Wunderlich, which believes shares are trading at a significant discount to arbitrage parity and offers a 32% total return.

QRE and BreitBurn Energy Partners (NASDAQ:BBEP) recently announced the signing of a merger deal in which BBEP would acquire QRE in a unit-for-unit exchange; the firm notes its Buy rating is anchored on its investment thesis for BBEP, assuming that the merger would go through.

    Hope the deal will fall through.
    QRE is worth more.
