What are analysts saying about Apache Corporation stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Apache Corporation stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Apache's stock price has fallen 27.8% since the start of this year, more than the Zacks U.S. Exploration & Production industry’s decline of 23.8%. While persistent weakness in crude prices due to a global supply glut continue to sent shockwaves through the industry, Apache’s tepid near-term production outlook is also a matter for concern. As it is, investors are disappointed that the much-hyped Alpine High discovery in west Texas will churn out more gas than oil. Increased capital spending unmatched by increased cash flows – leading to a free cash flow deficit – will hold back the stock as well. Lack of growth catalysts remain another major liability. Given these headwinds, we see Apache as a risky bet that ordinary investors should exit." (10/10/2017)
  • 2. KLR Group analysts commented, "Our $79 price target is unchanged following numerous model refinements including a ~30% improvement in North American capital productivity driven by a larger percentage of capital being allocated to wet gas dominant assets (i.e. Alpine High) offset by a ~10% reduction in our North American oil composition forecast, an ~8% increase in our operating expense assumption and a 10%+ reduction in our '19 forward capex assumptions. Following our model adjustments, APA generates a '19 capital yield (cash recycle ratio) of 145%+, up from ~130% previously, and in line with the group median." (3/20/2017)
  • 3. UBS AG analysts commented, "APA guided to 2017 capex of $3.1bn, up >60% YoY and just above consensus' ~$3.0bn & prior UBSe of ~$2.9bn. It expects to outspend cash flow this year, plugging the gap primarily from non-core asset sales (>$400MM received in 1Q17), while hedging its 2H17 oil prod'n with put options at ~$50/Bbl. APA is allocating ~65% of its 2017 budget ($2bn) to the Permian, including $500MM for Alpine High midstream infrastructure. Meanwhile, ~29% of its capex (~$900MM) will go to Egypt & North Sea. APA also provided preliminary 2018 capex of $3.2bn, well below expectations for ~$3.7bn. At strip, we forecast a cumulative 2017-18 FCF deficit (after divi) of ~$1.6bn." (2/24/2017)
