Marathon Oil (MRO) has seen a strong rally in the past month. The company has risen ~15% from its lows of $19 in August. The recent rally in Marathon Oil could be due to the gains in crude oil prices and a slight improvement in the price differentials. Global supply concerns including Iran sanctions and a decline in US inventories continue to drive the positive momentum in crude oil prices. US crude oil went past $71 per barrel on September 19. Overall, WTI has risen ~10.0% from its August lows.
This could indicate that investors who seek to profit from falling equity prices are not currently targeting EOG. Over the last month, growth of ETFs holding EOG is favorable, with net inflows of $14.37 billion. This is among the highest net inflows seen over the last one-year and the rate of additional inflows appears to be increasing.

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.
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.
"We are going anywhere from 70 to 180 miles to get our sand. And now, depending where you are in the field, it will be 10 miles," the company's chief financial officer said.
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 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. Later, we’ll look at their recent market performance, technical indicators, institutional activity, and analyst recommendations. Let’s start with a brief overview of the four peers.
WTI crude oil has held above $65 since April 2018 and we think the commodity will be range-bound close to $70 per barrel until the end of the year. EOG has proven track record of picking up cheap assets.
Halliburton, EOG Resources and Apache are the stocks to buy for the coming energy rally, Strategas Research Partners' Chris Verrone says. Despite the gains in crude and XLE, certain stocks within the energy sector haven't experienced much of a boost. "I think that's a mistake, and I think the market is going to start to reflect that," Verrone says.
Oil and gas producers are moving beyond the Permian Basin in West Texas as crude oil prices rise and the commodity glut in the Permian Basin continues to mount. For reference, the STACK play is a geographic area located in the Anadarko Basin area of Oklahoma, which it stands for Sooner Trend Anadarko, Canadian and Kingfisher, which in turns means that the geological formation is located in the Anadarko basin, mainly located across the Canadian and Kingfisher counties in Oklahoma.
The Permian basin is the lodestar of the U.S. oil business. One is the Powder River Basin, or PRB, in eastern Wyoming. While it produces less than 200,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day, the basin made an unexpected splash on several E&P earnings calls last month.
DEEP DIVE If you ignore the daily warnings that the bull market in U.S. stocks is going to end, and instead look at valuations, you can see something remarkable happening: Stock prices have risen considerably, but price-to-earning valuations have fallen.
