Could Whiting Petroleum’s Fall Suggest a Buying Opportunity?

Whiting Petroleum (WLL), an exploration and production company operating in North Dakota and the Williston Basin, has seen its stock fall ~20% recently, underperforming the SPDR S&P Oil & Gas Exploration & Production ETF (XOP). WLL’s sharp correction could be due to its high crude oil exposure—crude oil and natural gas liquids together formed ~84% of the company’s total production in Q2 2018.
