What are analysts saying about Hess Corporation stock?

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

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Hess is among the leading producers of crude in the Bakken oil shale play in North Dakota. With crude prices improving from last year’s historical low marks after OPEC decided to curb output, we believe that Bakken play should contribute to the company’s production growth in the long run.  The company’s effort to downsize its business will go a long way in the current market of volatile commodity prices. As part of this initiative, it is focusing more on the U.S. as it exits some countries due to size disadvantages. Hess has also increased its 2017 capital budget by about 18% year over year to $2.3 billion. Although increasing capital spending amid improving oil prices looks attractive, the history for ROC investment is not at all favorable for investors. Moreover, the company’s price chart reveals that shares have underperformed the broader industry, over the last three months." (10/12/2017)
  • 2. KLR Group analysts commented, "We are increasing our HES target price $4 to $72 per share due to incrementally stronger Bakken midstream margins and NGL price realizations. Hess's mid-cycle capital yield is ~130% versus the industry median cash recycle ratio of ~140%. Our '17 production expectation of ~311 Mboepd is fractionally above company guidance (300-310 Mboepd)."
