Northern Oil And Gas Up 8% On 3Q Profit Win; Street Sees 247% Upside
Shares of Northern Oil And Gas surged 7.7% in Friday's extended trading after the energy company’s 3Q earnings of $0.51 per share paced past Street estimates of $0.38 per share. EPS declined 44.6% from the year-ago quarter. Meanwhile, revenues of $47.3 million plunged about 80% year-over-year and fell well below analysts' expectations of $106.2 million.Northern’s (NOG) 3Q production of 29,051 Boe (barrel of oil equivalent) per day came at the high end of the company’s guidance and increased 22% from the second quarter. The company said that the higher production rate was “due to an increase in net completions and a partial return of curtailed production by many of Northern’s operating partners.”Northern’s CEO Nick O’Grady said “Costs were down, production was up and we generated meaningful free cash flow while continuing to strategically bolt on high return assets.” He added that “As of November 6, 2020, our debt is already down $160 million year-to-date, and our 2021 outlook continues to be focused on delivering more free cash flow, debt reduction and taking advantage of market distress.” (See NOG stock analysis on TipRanks).For the fourth quarter, the company expects to produce 30,000 to 40,000 Boe per day, despite production curtailments. As for 2021, Northern forecasts total capital expenditures in the range of $190 million – $240 million and production of 37,500 – 42,500 Boe per day.On Nov. 9, Northland Securities analyst Jeff Grampp maintained a Buy rating on the stock with a price target of $1 (70.6% downside potential).“Keeping with its returns-focused mantra, NOG pulled the trigger on an out-of-basin acquisition and while relatively small, it is hard to find holes to poke.” Grampp wrote in a note to investors. “While we are hesitant to expect the flood gates to open for Permian acquisitions, we think it shows management is patient (Been building Permian Basin data for two years) and committed to allocating capital where it can generate shareholder returns.”Currently, the Street has a bullish outlook on the stock. The Strong Buy analyst consensus is based on 5 unanimous Buys. The average price target of $11.80 implies upside potential of about 247.1% to current levels. Shares have declined 85.5% year-to-date.Related News: Callon Petroleum Climbs 4% As 3Q Sales Surge 74%; Street Sticks To Hold Diamondback Energy Surges 6% In Print Buildup; Reports Beat Magellan Tops 3Q Profit As Refined Products Demand Improves More recent articles from Smarter Analyst: * Pfizer, BioNTech Announce COVID-19 Vaccine is 90% Effective; Shares Pop in Pre-Market Trading * Mylan's 3Q Profit Misses The Street; Cowen Sticks To Hold * Canada’s Canopy Growth Pops 12% On Blowout Quarter, Cost Cuts * Ocular Therapeutix Rises 7% On Stellar Results Backed By Dextenza

QEP: Attractive Dividend But This E&P Has Some Real Risks
QEP is active in some of the most resource-rich basins in the United States and its production is mostly crude oil.The company has taken some steps to preserve its finances and should therefore generate about $100 million in FCF this year.It will take all of this and the cash on the balance sheet to cover its 2021 debt maturities if the market remains lukewarm to the company's debt.The company has even more debt maturing in 2022 and it is difficult to see how it will cover this if the market does not substantially improve in the next several months.The 4% yield is attractive but the risks here are too great for an investor looking for a long-term income play.
