Previously, we looked at ConocoPhillips’s (COP), EOG Resources’ (EOG), Occidental Petroleum’s (OXY), and Anadarko Petroleum’s (APC) recent market performance. In this article, we’ll look at the four stocks’ volatility.
As of September 13, ConocoPhillips (COP) and EOG Resources (EOG) were trading above their 200-day moving averages, while Occidental Petroleum (OXY) and Anadarko Petroleum (APC) have recently fallen below their long-term moving averages.

Among the four upstream peers we’re looking at, EOG Resources (EOG) has the highest forward price-to-CFFO1 ratio, of 8.6x. EOG’s high valuation might reflect its strong CFFO growth potential, capital efficiency resulting in a higher return on capital employed, and low leverage. EOG’s CFFO is expected to grow 78.3% YoY (year-over-year) this year, and 25.4% and 16.4% in 2019 and 2020, respectively. However, EOG’s current multiple is below its historical average of 11.5x.
So far in this series, we’ve compared ConocoPhillips’s (COP), EOG Resources’ (EOG), Occidental Petroleum’s (OXY), and Anadarko Petroleum’s (APC) proven reserves, recent operating performance, and capital expenditure guidance. In this article, we’ll look at their recent market performance.

Upstream energy stocks saw strong buying in the week ending September 14 amid sharp gains in crude oil prices. US crude oil went above $70 per barrel due to the bullish inventory report from the U.S. Energy Information Administration and Iran sanctions. The gains were partially offset by a decline due to concerns about how trade wars will impact global demand. Overall, US crude oil rose 1.8% and ended the week at $69 per barrel. On the other hand, US natural gas fell 0.3% and ended the week at $2.77 per MMBtu (million British thermal units).
Previously, we looked at ConocoPhillips’s (COP), EOG Resources’ (EOG), Occidental Petroleum’s (OXY), and Anadarko Petroleum’s production growth (APC).

In Q2 2018, EOG Resources (EOG) saw the highest YoY (year-over-year) production growth among peers. EOG’s average daily production rose 16.3% YoY to 702.2 Mboepd (thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day) from 603.9 Mboepd, beating its crude oil, natural gas, and NGL (natural gas liquid) production target. It saw strong production growth in the Delaware, Eagle Ford, and Powder River basins, driven by improved drilling activity and efficiency.
Between 2016 and 2017, ConocoPhillips’ (COP) total proven reserves, including equity affiliates, fell 21.6% to 5,038 MMboe (million barrels of oil equivalent), of which 47.7% were oil and 39.3% were natural gas. The decline was mainly due to the sale of its San Juan and Panhandle natural gas assets. However, it still has the highest reserves among peers.
