Global Hunter Securities upgraded SandRidge Energy (NYSE: SD) to Buy, price target raised from $8.50 to $13.00.

Analyst, Dan Morrison, said, "SandRidge's 4Q was largely a non-event to investors, though EPS and EBITDA beat our estimates. Production was down sequentially due to Permian plumbing issues which are currently being addressed. SandRidge's surprising acquisition of Dynamic Offshore caught us, along with most observers, completely by surprise. Upon reflection, we've grown to appreciate the impact of the transaction on SandRidge, providing cashflow to accelerate Mississippian development and removing liquidity concerns."
