ExxonMobil's (XOM +0.9%) deal to acquire Denbury's (DNR +3%) Bakken assets creates a buzz around firms with assets in the Williston Basin. Wunderlich notes XOM paid top dollar, and it sees potential for XOM to expand in the area or for other majors to move in. Kodiak's (KOG) plentiful Williston assets could be worth $13-$15/share based on today's deal; Whiting's (WLL) could be worth $70/share.
