Top 5 Stocks To Invest In Right Now


Pioneer Natural Resources Company (PXD Quick QuotePXD ) recently agreed to divest some assets in Texas to Laredo Petroleum, Inc. (LPI Quick QuoteLPI ) . The deal is likely to fetch the upstream company $230 million.

The deal included around 20,000 net acres located in western Glasscock County and is expected to close in the next month. The divested acres currently produce around 4,400 barrels of oil equivalent per day, of which 59% is crude oil. Pioneer Natural will receive $160 million in cash and 959,691 Laredo common shares from the divestment.

While the deal is expected to boost Laredo’s footprint in the prolific Midland Basin, it is in line with Pioneer Natural’s plan of divesting some of its non-core assets. The company is planning to divest its assets in the Delaware Basin, per Reuters. It is also expecting to generate more than $2 billion from the divestments.


The recovery in commodity prices has made divestments of oil and gas assets more profitable for upstream companies. As such, Pioneer Natural expects to attract more cash from selling non-core properties. The company received the assets, which are now up for sale, from the Parsley Energy acquisition, per Reuters. The divestment program is likely to help Pioneer Natural streamline the upstream portfolio. As investors these days are putting pressure on companies to boost shareholder value rather than production, upstream companies like Pioneer Natural are focusing more on profitable resources.
