Dmitry Balyasny‘s Balyasny Asset Management has made a huge move into Oasis Petroleum Inc. (NYSE:OAS) as reported in a 13G filing released today. Balyasny’s hedge fund now owns 13.75 million Oasis shares, up from just 3.58 million shares held as of June 30. The fund’s current stake would be the second-largest held by an institutional investor as of their June 30 positions, trailing only John Scully‘s SPO Advisory Corp, which held a 19.91 million-share stake at the end of June.
Although the filing doesn’t disclose when the shares were bought, the date of event of October 18 is the same day that Oasis Petroleum Inc. (NYSE:OAS) announced that it would sell 48 million shares in a spot secondary offering. It was a good time for an offering, as Oasis shares have surged closer to their 52-week highs in the last month as crude futures have risen above $50 per barrel. That was a busy day for Oasis, as it also announced the acquisition of 55,000 net acres in the Williston Basin from SM Energy Co (NYSE:SM) for approximately $785 million. Oasis has been upgraded by several analysts since October 18, including Piper Jaffray, which raised its rating on Oasis to ‘Overweight’ from ‘Neutral’ and raised its price target on the company’s shares to $16 from $14.
Oasis Petroleum Inc. (NYSE:OAS) was held by 33 of the hedge funds in our database on June 30, including Balyasny and SPO, up from 29 funds on March 31. Those 33 funds were very overweight the stock, owning 32.20% of its shares in aggregate. Other Oasis shareholders in our system on June 30 included John Paulson’s Paulson & Co (5.29 million shares), John Labanowski’s Brenham Capital (5.2 million shares), and Shashin Shah’s Think Investments (4.69 million shares).
