LinnCo Should Buy This Oil Company

Source: LINN Energy

LinnCo (NASDAQ: LNCO  ) has two important jobs. It was created to be used as an acquisition currency for its parent, as well as to fuel income to investors. I think LinnCo can accomplish both jobs by acquiring Denbury Resources (NYSE: DNR  ) .

LinnCo is intended to acquire C-Corps that own low-decline oil-and-gas properties that can then be dropped down to its parent, LINN Energy. It made its first such deal last year, which took much longer and cost more than expected. But with one deal in the bag LinnCo is likely itching to make its next move.

While other companies meet LinnCo's criteria, few offer the same strategic fit as Denbury Resources. As a company focused on using carbon dioxide in enhanced oil recovery, Denbury is a near perfect fit for the low-decline oil assets its parent wants to add to its portfolio. The following slideshow will help investors better understand why a LinnCo-led acquisition of Denbury Resources would make so much sense. It details why low-decline assets like those owned by Denbury Resources are exactly the type of assets LinnCo's MLP parent would love to acquire. 

Do you know this energy tax "loophole"?
The best way to fuel extra income into your portfolio is actually found in a tax "loophole". It's actually the loophole that LinnCo's parent uses to fuel so much income into LinnCo.

    Agree, this would be a nice fit for LNCO as a drop down to LINN. Should also be attractive to DNR yield starved shareholders.
