What are analysts saying about Eclipse Resources Corp stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Eclipse Resources Corp stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Eclipse Resources Corporation is an independent exploration and production company. It is engaged in the acquisition and development of oil and natural gas properties in the Appalachian Basin. Eclipse Resources Corporation is headquartered in State College, Pennsylvania. " (3/22/2017)
  • 2. Seaport Global Securities analysts commented, "After catching up with management ahead of this week's Analyst Day, we expect the update to highlight the company's 2017/2018 outlook (second rig likely coming by mid-2017), enhanced completions (Gen 3 completions outperforming type curves by >20%, which haven't been updated since the IPO in 2014), and current acreage footprint (likely indicates an expanded position in the liquids-rich condensate area). Management had previously estimated that a one-rig program could generate 30% growth in 2017 (with capex of $200MM-$225MM) and a 25% two-year CAGR through 2018, and that the addition of a second rig in mid-2017 would allow for a two-year CAGR of >40% (likely pushes 2017 capex closer to $300MM). We note that current SGS/Street estimates call for 40%/39% growth in 2017 from $302MM/$238MM spend and a two-year CAGR of 48%/35%, respectively. As it pertains to the quarter, we expect production to come in at the high-end of guidance (245.0-250.0 MMcfepd vs. SGS/Street both at 250.0 MMcfepd); additionally, we expect realized oil and NGL prices to come in strong vs. guidance (SGS at $7.00 below NYMEX/42% of WTI for oil/NGLs vs. guidance of $7.00-$9.00 below NYMEX/35%-40% of WTI, respectively). We're updating our estimates post our conversation with management, and increasing our NAV-based price target to $4.00 (vs. $3.50 previously) after making some adjustments to our type curve assumptions; we are also upgrading our rating to Buy (from Neutral). ECR is the cheapest NE gas name while offering good compression in out-year multiples (FY17 projected EV/EBITDA of 5.1x moves to 3.8x in FY20) and is the best debt-adjusted grower in the group (27% vs. peers at 17%)."
