Its easily hold maybe a buy. Have you seen the hess call volume?
Its has a 63.00 dollar book value, tons of assets that MAY be sold which would propel the stock to 75 easily if not higher. If your short term and dont have money on the sidelines then I guess I would sell.
Hess is to scary to short, any day John Hess could do a agreement with the activists. Even a partial agreement will be a benefit to Hess and burn shorts. Worse Case scenario John Hess does not make deal. However he said he would cut spending and dedicate 90% to exploration.
