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 gained higher than the industry in last six months. The company continues to work on its strategy of increasing oil production, which is evident from the rising liquid mix in total production. Liquids accounted for 69.7% of total production in the third quarter. Production from the Delaware Basin increased substantially during the quarter with the help of assets the company acquired during the first quarter. We believe WPX Energy's exposure in the Delaware, Williston and San Juan basins will enable it achieve its new goal of higher oil generation in 2018. However, the competitive energy space, volatility in crude oil prices, stringent regulations and dependence on third parties to market their products are the headwinds. " (2/3/2018)
- 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "We reiterate our Outperform rating, $19 price target, and Alpha Generator status on shares of WPX Energy after updating our model for the latest financial and operations data, including the closing of its acquisition of Panther Energy. While a longer average lateral length has positive implications for our production forecast and estimates, the impact is mostly offset by a lower marked-to-market commodity price deck. We note that WPX's best-in-class growth outlook'recently raised to a 30%'40% CAGR from 2017'2020 for both oil and EBITDA (from a prior target of 20%'35%)'is being complemented by sizeable improvements in capital efficiency."

WPX Energy (NYSE:WPX) Analysts' Consensus Rating (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus analyst ratings for company stocks using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Analyst consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings from Wall Street analysts. Each stock's consensus analyst rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
