    Eagle Ford, Execution Could Make Penn Virginia (PVA) One Viable Takeover Target (DVN) (EOG)
    12:45 PM ET, 03/21/2014 - Street Insider
    Penn Virginia (NYSE: PVA) is up Friday following a positive Bloomberg mention.

    Shares surged this week following news that venerable investor George Soros took a large stake in the company. Soros said he may talk to the board about ways to increase shareholder value and potentially even discuss asset sales.

    Analysts see Devon Energy (NYSE: DVN) or Newfield Exploration (NYSE: NFX) as potential suitors with Penn Virginia drawing in as much as $25 per share.

    Amid recent gains, Penn Virginia trades at 5.06 times projected EBITDA for 2014, just below the median of its peer group with market caps larger than $500 million.

    Penn Virigina has about 80,000 net acres in the Eagle Ford shale play, which may attract energy companies like EOG Resources (NYSE: EOG) and ConocoPhilips (NYSE: COP). EOG has 639,000 acres in the region, while Conoco has 227,000 acres.

    While Penn Virginia could be an attractive target, management has taken steps on its own to increase shareholder value. Recent moves include divesting non-core assets and improving execution in Eagle Ford.

    Shares of Penn Virginia are up about 2.3 percent.
