These make SM Energy one of the most attractive players in the exploration and production space. The company’s increasing focus on oil, specifically in the Permian and Rocky Mountain regions, will boost its oil-weighted activity. Additionally, the firm has meaningful leasehold positions in the leading US shale plays, including the Bakken, Niobrara, Haynesville, and Granite Wash, which is likely to provide the company with many years of profitable drilling inventory. Also, SM Energy has raised its 2018 production guidance, which is attributable to significant growth in the Permian Basin. Consequently, the company is expected to offer upside potential from current levels." (10/9/2018)
