What are analysts saying about ConocoPhillips stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about ConocoPhillips stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "ConocoPhillips is one of the largest exploration and production players in the world, based on proved reserves and production. During the second quarter, the company reported strong results following higher realized prices from commodities sold and production ramp up from numerous key developments. We appreciate the company’s initiative to divest assets worth $16 billion in 2017 and divert the proceeds toward oil-rich Eagle Ford shale and Permian Basin. ConocoPhillips owns significant undrilled locations in the Eagle Ford shale that could lend access to huge oil reserves. Also, the company’s net cash flow from operations have been rising steadily since the beginning of 2017. However, we are concerned about the company’s escalating debt levels. It is to be noted that at the end of second-quarter 2017, ConocoPhillips had only $7.5 billion in cash and cash equivalents, while its debt climbed to $23.5 billion." (8/1/2017)
  • 2. Credit Suisse Group 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)
