Chesapeake Energy Corporation (NYSE:CHK)Former Chesapeake Energy CEO’s New Company on the Prowl (247WallSt)
You can’t keep a good landman down — and there probably never has been a more successful landman than Aubrey McClendon, founder and former CEO of Chesapeake Energy Corporation (NYSE:CHK). Since being fired as the company’s CEO in April, McClendon has ginned up his own company, American Energy Partners LP, and reportedly raised a stake of $1 billion to go out shopping for new properties. A report at Upstream Online claims that McClendon’s new company has put in the highest bid for 50,000 acres in Ohio’s Utica shale play that Royal Dutch Shell plc (ADR) (NYSE:RDS.B) is selling. The acreage is fragmented and is said to be part of a still unproven oil play in the region.

Exxon Mobil Corp. Rating Reiterated by TheStreet (XOM) (WatchListNews)
Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM)‘s stock had its “buy” rating reaffirmed by equities researchers at TheStreet in a research report issued on Friday, Analyst Ratings.Net reports. The analysts wrote, “Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM) has been reiterated by TheStreet Ratings as a buy with a ratings score of A. The company’s strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its attractive valuation levels, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and increase in stock price during the past year. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.”
