Shares of SandRidge (NYSE: SD ) are down sharply today after Chesapeake Energy (NYSE: CHK ) sold off its Mississippian assets for less than analysts had expected: $1.02 billion for 425 thousand acres, or $2,400 per acre. SandRidge is now largely levered to the Mississippian after selling off its Permian assets and concentrating in the Mississippian region.
