What are analysts saying about SM Energy Co stock?

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

  • Piper Jaffray Companies analysts commented, "SM Energy (SM) shares sank 8% today. The decline was primarily driven by the Q4 production miss and weaker '17 expectations (especially on an oil cut relative to our prior expectations) resulting in a reduction in '17 earnings and cash flows. Secondarily, the shares were negatively impacted by higher-than-expected Permian well costs. We thought the Permian update was instructive and demonstrated the progress the company has made in the play. In addition, the new wells announced today were good, many with just 20 day rates provided (meaning the 30 day rate will likely be higher given production was still increasing). While SM shares are maddeningly volatile (and are never easy), we reiterate our OW rating given the favorable valuation and risk/reward proposition. We believe long-term investors could be rewarded as SM drives Permian production growth and de-risks their acreage in the Midland basin." (2/1/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "SM Energy boasts of a diverse asset mix and promising organic production growth outlook. SM is also favorably positioned than most of its peers in terms of the strength of its balance sheet. Moreover, its holdings in Eagle Ford, Bakken, Niobrara, Haynesville and Granite Wash provide multiple years of drilling inventory, indicating robust long-term prospects for the firm. We also appreciate SM’s decision to increase highly productive Permian Basin acreage to boost shareholder’s return. Additionally, the company’s price chart has been moving ahead of the Zacks categorized Oil & Gas – U.S. Exploration & Production market, over the last year. However, being a firm in the upstream energy space, SM Energy faces risks from commodity price fluctuations, lack of service rig availability, dry holes, mechanical failures, adverse weather conditions, apart from execution risk. This accounts for our cautious stance on the firm." (1/3/2017)
