    Proud to climb aboard the WLL ship.

    Whiting is hitting on all cylinders........their Niobrara acres are very hot for a nice bonus........WLL is now a target for the majors..imo. I am excited to be a part of this strong growth story. 855,000 net acres strong in the mighty Bakken........great stuff.

    good luck to all longs.


    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Looks like the market likes the deal........KOG & WLL will trade in tandem in relation to the .177 factor. Whiting will pull Kodiak share price higher...........this is a sweet deal for the shareholders on both sides imo. Whiting will return us 20%+ return on our money...................the majors have to be drawling over Whitings the good 'ol USA......................................

      Do you own any KOG? If you like WLL so much, why didn't you buy them instead of KOG? Don't like management making my purchase choices for me.

      Sentiment: Hold

    • Exactly right - we are now WLL shareholders if everything goes thru. I sure don't have a problem at all with that. WLL is a buyout candidate as well but even if that doesn't occur we are sitting good. Watch WLL stock price grow over the next few months before this deal get's finalized & then realize that you will be getting shares of that well-run company.

        WLL has been a highly recommended stock and I have been watching it. My big problem is someone else has made that decision for me. If I had wanted WLL at these prices, I would have bought. At the very least, there should have been cash on the table.

        From "The Street" -

        "Here's what I find most intriguing, though: If you had asked me, going into this session, which oil company was most likely to be acquired next, the answer would have been Whiting. At $9 billion in market capitalization, it is certainly swallow-able, and several companies have made it pretty clear that they wish they had more American exposure. That's especially true for Statoil STO , which bought neighboring Brigham Exploration for $44 billion in cash. I know from speaking with Statoil management that it regards the acquisition as incredibly successful. This is very important, considering the pretty shocking North Sea production declines.

        Could the much-overlooked Kodiak be the poison pill Whiting had been looking for?

        To me this deal smacks more like Hillshire HSH trying to buy Pinnacle Foods PF right on the heels of what turned out to be a big takeover offering from Tyson TSN , which we didn't learn about until later. Ultimately, of course, a bidding war ensued for Hillshire, and Tyson was the unlucky, overpaying winner.

        It sure wouldn't shock me to learn that Whiting had been in contact with a buyer, too, and that Kodiak is simply its Pinnacle in the patch."

    • Welbie, if you were on the Titanic you would have been excited about the opportunity to go for a swim

    • You'd be proud to climb aboard your mother Welbie.

    • Mr. Peterson said it was a good deal for Kodiak shareholders.

      “There’s tremendous upside, that’s why we were comfortable with a stock transaction,” he said. “We wanted to give our shareholders an opportunity to participate in the upside.”
