What are analysts saying about Stone Energy stock?

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

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Despite Stone Energy’s underperformance against the Zacks Oil and Gas – U.S Exploration and Production industry over the last three month, the company posted higher production during the latest quarter on an annual basis. Stone Energy has a multi-year inventory of drilling prospects, and is working on a strategy to fund its growth areas in Appalachia, the Rockies and the Deep Gas/Deepwater in the conventional shelf. It is actively engaged in horizontal well drilling in the Marcellus Shale and involved in various vertical tests in the Bakken Shale play. Consequently, we think Stone Energy offers substantial upside potential from the current price levels and view it as an attractive investment." (4/12/2017)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, "What Happened:
    • Stone emerged from bankruptcy on February 28, removing $1.2 billion in liabilities from its balance sheet.
    • Former holders of the 2017 and 2022 notes, will receive 19 million shares, representing 95% of the newly organized common shares.
    • Stone will maintain its listing on the NYSE, and will trade under the same SGY ticker symbol.
    • In 4Q16, SGY entered into a purchase and sale agreement with TH Exploration, to dispose of its Appalachian assets in exchange for $360 million in cash. We expect the sale to close on Feb 28, 2017, at which point SGY will no longer have assets or operations in the region.
    • Stone produced 43.7 thousand barrels of oil equivalent per day (Mboe/d), near the upper band of company guidance. Additionally the company saw a 7% reduction to its base of proved reserves
    Our Take:
    • In all candor, Stone’s emergence from bankruptcy significantly improves its balance sheet, putting upward pressure on share prices, and providing investors with an admittedly compelling value prospect at current levels. Indeed, given the downward revision in reserves, coupled with expectations for lower production, our knee jerk reaction would be to remain neutral on company shares. Still, the reduction of over $1 billion in debt cannot be ignored, and solves what has been Stone’s biggest pain point in recent years.
    • In addition to positively impacting the balance sheet, the reduction in debt levels will also reduce Stone’s interest expense burden. By our own model, we project a decline in quarterly interest to $5 million, from $14.6 in 4Q16.
    • The sale of its Appalachian assets will likely have a sharp negative impact on production volumes. We note that in 4Q16, production from Stone’s Appalachian assets was approximately 128 Million cubic feet per day (Mmcfe/d), or approximately 21 Mboe/d when converted to oil equivalents. To that end, we expect both Stone’s production volumes and production mix to change, moving forward. Specifically, our 2017 model estimates 24 Mboe/d in the second quarter down 45% from the 43.7 Mboe/d Stone produced in 4Q16. Moreover, where we have traditionally viewed Stone as having a balanced production mix between oil natural gas, and natural gas liquids (NGL’s), we now view the company as having a significantly larger oil blend, modeling 65% moving forward.
    • We actually contend that this is a beneficial time for Stone in regards to a shift in production mix, as oil prices have begun to strengthen within the last quarter. Additionally, investors should note that Stone produces oil that receives Light Louisiana Sweet (LLS) pricing, which traditionally trades at a premium to benchmark WTI.
    • The sale of its Appalachian assets will impact production but is likely to have a smaller impact on Stone’s reserve base. While the sale of assets generally leads to declines in proved reserves, we note that Stone already received a negative revision in 2015 on the aforementioned asset. To that end, we view the decline from 57 Mmboe to 53 Mmboe as relatively mild.
    • At this time, we are raising our price target on Stone to $10 (from 6), while upgrading its shares to BUY. Given the aforementioned developments we contend that Stone has value at current levels. We expect that Stone’s share count will grow in the near future, and highlight that we are accounting for 20 million shares in 1Q17, versus 5.6 in 4Q16. We continue to evaluate Stone on the basis of reserves, production, and discretionary cash flow, while making adjustments for net debt. Our $10 price target equates to .76x our 2017 discretionary cash flow per share (DCF) estimate of $13.10
