QEP Resources (QEP) is paying a rich valuation in its $1.4B purchase of North Dakota properties, which bodes well for other players in the region, an Imperial Capital analyst says. "This acquisition is a positive read-through to the pure play Bakken players, which we believe are takeout candidates," the firm says, listing OAS and TPLM as the most attractive candidates for a buyout deal.

    This is huge for TPLM. Looks like an easy double at these valuations.

    BKH wouldn't sell unless at what they considered a full price,but QEP wouldn't buy unless they considered the price to be low enough to provide an acceptable return.

     

    So somebody is wrong. Which one?
