Is Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation (NYSE:COG) a good dividend stock? How can we tell? Dividend paying companies with...
The energy sector is comprised of companies focused on the exploration, production, and marketing of oil, gas, and renewable resources around the world. Popular energy sector stocks include upstream companies that are primarily engaged in the exploration of oil or gas reserves. Well-known companies in the sector are Hess Corp. (HES) and Diamondback Energy Inc. (FANG).
The debate over controversial fracking in 2020 battleground state Pennsylvania — especially as the U.S. tightens its clasp on energy independence — divides the last Democrats vying for the party’s presidential nod. Their pro-fracking rival, incumbent Donald Trump, won the state as part of his unexpected march to the White House four years ago.
Russia and Saudi Arabia are battling each other and America’s shale producers. There will be casualties, but some U.S. drillers, shippers, and refiners will survive to fight another day.
(Bloomberg) -- In a week of brutal equity market losses that were sparked in large part by a plunge in oil prices, the single biggest gainer in the S&P 500 Index was, curiously, one with the word oil in it.Cabot Oil & Gas Corp. amassed a 12% weekly advance, bucking the 8.8% rout in the index overall.It was not, to be clear, the oil part of the business that sparked the advance in Cabot. It was the gas part. The Houston-based driller’s resilience lies in how the biggest oil-price collapse in a generation has transformed the outlook for the U.S. gas market.In places like the Permian Basin of West Texas and New Mexico, gas is extracted as a byproduct of oil drilling. When crude prices were higher, gas output from the Permian soared faster than pipelines could be built to take it away, sending prices there below zero and forcing producers to pay others to take their supply.But the coronavirus pandemic and the battle for market share between Russia and Saudi Arabia have sent oil prices plunging, making almost all U.S. shale wells unprofitable. Producers are cutting back in a big way, and investors are betting that the pullback will help shrink the massive glut of so-called associated gas from crude basins. That would be a reversal of fortune for gas drillers, which have lagged their oilier counterparts in recent years.“The collapse in crude is likely to slash associated growth expectations, which have been a primary driver of our bearish gas stance over the last several years,” analysts at Tudor, Pickering, Holt & Co. wrote in a note to clients. The bank rates Cabot a buy.Cabot rose 15% to $18.37 on Friday. Gas explorers including Southwestern Energy Co. and EQT Corp. also climbed. U.S. gas futures climbed 9.4% this week, while West Texas Intermediate crude oil tumbled 23%.(Updates with price gain starting in first paragraph)To contact the reporter on this story: David Wethe in Houston at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Simon Casey at email@example.com, Christine Buurma, Joe CarrollFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
The three major U.S. stock market indexes plunged, triggering a 15-minute trading halt, after President Donald Trump’s Oval Office speech Wednesday evening failed to calm fears about the coronavirus and its economic effects.
Just two of the stocks that make up the S&P 500 were higher Thursday, as markets sold off again on fears about the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, as it continues to spread around the world. Cabot Oil & Gas Corp. was up 4% and Akamai Technologies Inc. was up 0.9%, with the rest of the market a sea of red after President Donald Trump announced a temporary ban on flights from most European countries. Cabot Oil & Gas has held up well through the current carnage in markets. Analysts at Tudor Pickering Holt kept their buy rating on Cabot shares earlier this week, their only buy-rated U.S. natural-gas producer. There's still "further room to run" for the shares, trading at about $16 but worth up to $24, they said. Raymond James said Thursday that Akamai could benefit from the uptick in people working from home, amid increased demand for over-the-top video service. The S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average were both down more than 7%.

STOCKSTOWATCHTODAY BLOG Three numbers to start your day: A Bear Market is Signified by a Decline of 20% —from an index’s recent high-water mark. And now, the Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P 500, and Nasdaq Composite are all on the brink of entering one.
Is this the start of the rise of the mighty Marcellus again? Some of the region's biggest players in the natural gas industry — including Cabot Oil and Gas Corp., EQT Corp. and CNX Resources Corp.
FEATURE Plunging. The three major U.S. stock market indexes cratered from the get-go on Monday—and briefly triggered the market’s temporary circuit breakers in the process. Once trading resumed, stocks came off their lows but remained deep in the red.
Cabot Oil & Gas shares on Monday were higher while the rest of the oil sector tumbled as analysts reassessed their views of the natural-gas-heavy company. Cabot's advance to the top of the S&P 500 came in sharp contrast to other oil companies, which sank after crude prices fell. Analysts at Cowen said Cabot was the "best-in-class gassy name," while Doug Leggate, an analyst with Bank of America, said that "on a relative basis, Cabot is 99% gas" and is among the companies "with the lowest operating cost and sustaining capital in the sector."
(COG) is the top stock in the S&P 500 during Monday’s market rout as investors anticipate that the sharp drop in crude oil prices will reduce the U.S. supply of natural gas and lift depressed gas prices. Cabot shares (ticker: COG) were up $1.68, or 10%, to $18.08 in recent trading. Cabot is one of the largest and lowest-cost U.S. producers of gas in the prolific Marcellus region of Pennsylvania.
Just 10 S&P 500 stocks were trading higher on Monday, as benchmark indexes sold off in response to an oil price war between Russia and Saudi Arabia. The biggest gainer was Cabot Oil & Gas Corp. after Cowen analysts said the " best-in-class gassy name" should be favored in the current selloff. The stock was up 11.4% in morning trade. Three car parts makers were higher, after Credit Suisse said that sector had the least exposure to supply chain disruption in China, given "slow turns, and adequate inventory position currently. Biggest risk seems to be late Spring shipments, and some seasonal categories within that," analysts wrote in a Monday note. "Bigger concerns would be demand recently, but stocks seem to be reflecting concerns, having lagged in recent months.' AutoZone Inc. stock was up 3%, O'Reilly Automotive Inc. was up 2.6% and Advance Auto Parts Inc. was up 1.2%. The other gainers were Walmart Inc. , up 2%, Dollar Tree Inc. , up 1.4%, Twitter Inc. , up 1%, H&R Block Inc. , up 1%, Clorox Co. , up 0.9% and Dollar General Corp. , up 0.7%.
The Saudi-Russia spat that sent oil prices plunging over the weekend could be bad news for Permian Basin oil producers — which could, maybe, be slightly good news for Marcellus and Utica natural gas producers. At least that's one of the thoughts driving Wall Street, where several publicly traded natural gas producers saw their shares go up Friday despite the 256-point drop in the Dow Jones industrial average and the general coronavirus-fueled volatility of global markets. The leader was Cabot Oil and Gas Corp. (NYSE: COG), which was up 9.7 percent to close at $16.37 a share Friday.
