What are Wall Street analysts saying about WPX Energy stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about WPX Energy stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of WPX Energy have outperformed its industry in the past three months. WPX Energy has gradually transformed itself from a natural gas-focused company to an oil-focused one. The company has been able to do so through nearly $8 billion of transactions. WPX Energy is building up a strong portfolio of assets that will continue boosting oil production and allow it to gain from improving commodity prices. The company’s decision to sell midstream assets will aid it in further strengthening its operation. WPX Energy’s exposure in Delaware and Williston basins will enable it to achieve the goal of higher oil generation in 2019. However, the competitive energy space, stringent regulations and dependence on third parties to market its products are major headwinds." (5/11/2019)
