Callon Petroleum Company CPE witnessed upward estimate revisions for 2022 and 2023 earnings in the past 30 days. The leading upstream energy firm, flaunting a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), is likely to record earnings growth of 84.5% in 2022.

What’s Favoring the Stock?

West Texas Intermediate crude price, trading at more than $110 per barrel, has risen drastically in the past year. The sharp rise in oil price can be hitched to the assumptions by many analysts that the Ukraine war may be prolonged.

Being a leading exploration and production company, Callon Petroleum is well-positioned to capitalize on the rally in crude price. The company has a strong footprint in Permian, the most prolific basin in the United States, brightening its production outlook. Callon Petroleum is planning to allocate more capital in the most prolific basin this year than the last year. Compared with 75% of capital budget allocation for Permian in 2021, the upstream player has decided to increase the proportion to 85% in 2022.

Callon Petroleum is also focused on greenhouse gas emissions and lowering routine flaring. The new targets of Callon Petroleum also comprise strengthening its financials while deleveraging the balance sheet.

Banking on these developments, the company is expected to generate significant free cash flows.
