Nov 5 (Reuters) – Oil producer QEP Resources Inc,
which is under pressure from activist investor Jana Partners
LLC, posted a lower-than-expected profit on Tuesday as a jump in
commodity prices failed to offset a dip in production.
For the third quarter, QEP reported net income of $37.3
million, or 21 cents per share, compared with a net loss of $3.1
million, or 2 cents per share, in the year-ago quarter.
