SandRidge Energy (SD -1.7%) is downgraded to Underweight with a $5 price target (down from $9.50) at J.P. Morgan, citing too much risk relative to any potential upside. The firm says if TPG-Axon wins its consent solicitation, the stock probably moves up, but the stock likely gets hit hard if it loses. Regardless, SD seems to need extraordinary measures to avoid a financial crunch.

    SD is the poster child for trying to build a oil dynasty in under 2 years. Borrow money at any cost regardless of what happens to the balance sheet. The only thing that will save this company is a total house cleaning. I have looked at this stock countless times and before I hit the buy button, I remember that Tom Ward is still there.

    This is JP Morgan saying Tom Ward & his BOD shouldn't be there. I imagine that those invested heavily in SD have come to the same conclusion and will vote the Green Consent in favor of new management.

    Last 3 trading days, 3 downgrades daily. Something is cooking at the back.

    SD doesn't need board members who do not understand the O&G business ans energy big picture. Way too many E&P companies have these type of boards member who don't have a clue.
