What are analysts saying about EP Energy Corp stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about EP Energy Corp stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "EP Energy Corporation is involved in the acquisition and development of unconventional onshore oil and natural gas. The company's assets consist of the Eagle Ford Shale in South Texas, the Wolfcamp Shale in Permian Basin in West Texas, the Altamont field in the Uinta Basin in Utah and the Haynesville Shale in North Louisiana. EP Energy Corporation is based in Houston, United States. " (10/17/2016)
  • 2. JPMorgan Chase & Co. analysts commented, "JPM View: After facing stiff headwinds in the commodity price collapse given its stretched balance sheet, management has not stood still and has continued to make progress in adapting its business model to the reality of lower commodity prices. In addition to repurchasing its debt at significant discounts to par, management has added hedges and announced a nifty sliding scale royalty agreement with its landowner (University Lands) that will support a return to activity in its Wolfcamp play, with a 1 rig program. On the other hand, EPE has dropped its lone Eagle Ford (EF) rig, with plans to work-off its 42 well DUC inventory in the EF for the time being. We have updated our model to incorporate 2Q16 actuals and updated guidance, including the impact of the new sliding scale royalty regime in the Permian Basin." (8/15/2016)
  • 3. Citigroup Inc analysts commented, "We maintain our Buy rating on Dongfeng Motor, as we expect limited risk due to its 1) historical low trading P/BV, which would reach only 0.7x/0.6x in 2016E/2017E; and 2) strong net cash position, which accounts 30% of market cap. Due to the company’s historically conservative accounting practice, we believe net cash will continue to rise, even if sales and earnings are uncertain. Our 2016/2017 earnings estimates are 8%/12% below consensus." (7/18/2016)
