What are analysts saying about Gulfport Energy Corporation stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Gulfport Energy Corporation stock:
- 1. Williams Capital analysts commented, "We atribute the well outperformance to its enhanced comple�on designs, which should help validate the upside to the SCOOP acquisi�on, as well as put GPOR in the beat -and-raise camp with a posi�ve rate of change. Management will host its earnings call this morning (May 9th ) at 9:00 AM ET. We reaﬃrm our Buy rating a nd $27 PT. We expect shares to react positive to its initial SCOOP well results. Key Points Flow back on ini�al SCOOP wells outperforming 30%-35%. GPOR recently turned-to-sales its ﬁrst two gross (1.2 net) SCOOP wells, the Vinson 2-22X27H and 3R-22X27H (lateral lengths averaging 8,500 �) located in the wet gas window in Southern Grady County with 24-hour IP rates of 14.9 Mmcfe/d (97.7% nat gas) and 17.2 Mmcfe/d (98.3% nat gas), respec�vely. Moreover, these wells are showcasing an early ﬂow-back outperformance of ~30% to oﬀse�ng wells and by as much as 35% to its SCOOP wet gas type curve. We atribute the well out performance to its enhanced comple�on designs. Speciﬁcally, these wells u�lized 180- foot stage spacing with ~ 2,400 pounds of proppant per foot of lateral. During the summer, GPOR expect to spud a well in the Springer (~38,600 net prospec�ve acres) and Sycamore (40,000 net prospec�ve acres) – stay tuned." (5/9/2017)
- 2. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "GPOR's entry into the SCOOP, diluting its pure-play, dry gas Utica focus, clearly gave investors cause for concern as the stock has underperformed the XOP by 24% since the deal was announced on December 14. However, we still find value in GPOR shares and assume coverage with a Buy rating. We reduce our PT to $22 on a slower long-term development pace in the Utica and a lower gas price assumption than our previous NAV ($3.50 LT vs $4.00 LT previously)." (3/22/2017)
- 3. KLR Group analysts commented, "We are increasing our GPOR target price $1 to $31 per share due to almost 10% lower capital intensity (lower Utica well costs) largely offset by lower liquids composition. Our '17 production expectation of ~1,073 Mmcfepd is at the midpoint of company guidance (1,045-1,100 Mmcfepd)." (2/14/2017)
- 4. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Gulfport Energy owns and operates mature oil and gas properties in the Louisiana Gulf Coast area. The company seeks to achieve reserve growth and increased cash flow from operations through low risk development activities on its existing properties and acquiring additional Louisiana Gulf Coast properties with exploitation and exploration potential.

Consensus Ratings for Gulfport Energy Corporation (NASDAQ:GPOR) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
