  • 1. Credit Suisse Group AG analysts commented, "However, there are pure plays delivering 15+ percent pa multiyear cash flow growth from a deep shale inventory that [has] also sold off unfairly. The competition is fierce," (3/30/2017)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "ConocoPhillips is touted to be the largest exploration and production player in the world, based on proved reserves and production. The company’s price chart reveals that its shares have outperformed the broader market over the prior six months. OPEC's recent decision to cut production for the first time since 2008 is likely to assist the global oil prices to stabilize and further improve ConocoPhillips stock price. Improvement on the cost front is another positive. During 2016, ConocoPhillips generated as much as $1.3 billion from asset divestment program. This should help the company lower debt load and also return cash to stockholders through share buybacks. We believe that ConocoPhillips offers substantial upside potential from the current price levels. However, the company failed to beat the Zacks Consensus Estimate in two of the last four quarters with an average earnings miss of 13.12%." (1/13/2017)
