This could indicate that investors who seek to profit from falling equity prices are not currently targeting APC.

This is among the highest net inflows seen over the last one-year and the rate of additional inflows appears to be increasing.
Royal Dutch Shell Plc, shedding assets to pay for its takeover of BG Group Plc, is in talks to sell its interest in a Gulf of Mexico oilfield to Focus Oil, according to people familiar with the matter. The deal could value Shell’s stake in the Caesar Tonga field at about $1.3 billion, said the people, who asked to not be identified because the matter isn’t public. Shell has a 22.5 percent working interest in Caesar Tonga, with the rest owned by companies including field operator Anadarko Petroleum Corp., Equinor ASA and Chevron Corp., according to company filings.
Among the four upstream companies we’re looking at in this series, Anadarko Petroleum (APC) has received the most “buy” (82.9%) recommendations from analysts covering the stock. The remaining 17.1% recommend “hold.” Analysts’ bullishness toward APC could be due to its attractive valuation. Barclays recently initiated coverage on APC, assigning the stock an “overweight” rating, which is equivalent to “buy.” APC has seen six rating updates in past six months—five coverage initiations and one upgrade. APC is currently trading below the low range ($70) of analysts’ target price. ...

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. OXY’s and APPC’s 200-day SMAs (simple moving averages) should now act as support. Among the four peers, only COP is trading above its short-term moving average, indicating bullishness toward COP.
Investors need to pay close attention to Anadarko Petroleum (APC) stock based on the movements in the options market lately.
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.
Surging output from U.S. shale formations has boosted total crude oil production to a record high of nearly 10.7 million barrels a day (MM bbl/d), according to the U.S Energy Information Administration (EIA), making the U.S. the largest oil producer in the world. In February U.S. crude oil production exceeded that of Saudi Arabia for the first time in more than two decades at a moment when that country was negotiating production quotas with Russia. In June and August the U.S. surpassed Russia in crude oil production for the first time since February 1999.
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.
SandRidge Energy (SD), a natural gas–weighted E&P company focused in the Mid-Continent and Niobrara Shale regions, was the weakest upstream stock in the week ending September 14. SandRidge Energy fell 22.7% last week. SandRidge Energy saw a massive fall last week following the announcement about ending the strategic review related to various takeover bids. Bill Griffin, SandRidge Energy’s CEO, said, “What we found through our comprehensive and thorough process was a significant disconnect between the intrinsic value of SandRidge and the bidders’ perception of the Company.”
This year, ConocoPhillips (COP) expects its capital expenditure to rise 30.7% YoY (year-over-year), to $6.0 billion from $4.6 billion. ConocoPhillips increased its capex guidance in the second quarter by $500 million.
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 this article, we’ll look into their adjusted EBITDAX (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization, and exploration expenses) and free cash flow.
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.
In this series, we’ll compare the four largest independent E&P (exploration and production) players by market capitalization: ConocoPhillips (COP), EOG Resources (EOG), Occidental Petroleum (OXY), and Anadarko Petroleum (APC). In the first five articles, we’ll analyze their recent operating performance, capex plans, and valuation.
