  • 1. Northland Securities analysts commented, "We reiterate our Outperform rating and $35 PT, implying a 2020 yield of 7.4%. Overview: VNOM is acquiring 1,358 net royalty acres with 2Q19 production of 1,400 BOEPD for 5.2MM common units ($150MM transaction value) from Santa Elena Minerals (Private). The acreage has an average net revenue interest of 5.6% and is located primarily in two ranches in with FANG operating over 65% of the acreage. We note the seller will be subject to a 180-day lockup period." (9/16/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Viper Energy Partners generates a strong and steady royalty income from the mineral interests in the prolific basins across the United States. The partnership entered into 88 accords in 2018 including the first drop-down asset/property of Pecos County mineral resources from its parent company, Diamondback. Viper Energy Partners expects more drop-down of assets to follow from the additional 1,186 net royalty acres in Pecos and Reeves counties that are owned by Diamondback. This expansion strategy is likely to generate more royalty income from the partnership and be accretive to the unitholders. Moreover, oil price has recovered significantly and is now heading toward the $65-per-barrel psychological mark. Since oil accounts for maximum volumes from Viper Energy Partners’ producing properties, the crude recovery should boost the partnership’s financials." (4/12/2019)
