Talisman Energy (TLM +6.7%) posted a 72% lower Q2 profit from a year ago on weak commodity prices but results aren't as bad as some had feared, and shares surge. Total production rose 4% Y/Y to 435K boe/day on higher volumes in Southeast Asia and from North American shale, but falling prices more than offset that growth.
