Analysts agree that ExxonMobil (XOM) has the financial strength to buy a company like Encana (ECA -0.4%) but disagree on whether such a deal will take place as speculated. Hedgeye's Kevin Kaiser likes the idea after XOM's purchase of Celtic, whose assets are in the heart of ECA’s Canadian natural gas assets. But the hurdle for government approval could be high.
