EPL Oil & Gas (EPL) Jumps on Upgrade to "Buy"

Tickers Mentioned:

The $1 billion-dollar independent oil & gas exploration/production firm Energy Partners Ltd. (EPL) was trading nearly 7 percent higher on Friday following an upgrade from Canaccord Genuity from “hold” to “buy.”

The gains for Energy Partner’s came early and persisted throughout the day’s trading, despite the fact that another ratings firm, Sasquehanna, initiated coverage on the stock at “negative” at the same time. EPL is a Houston, TX-based company that does the bulk of its work in state and federal waters in the Gulf of Mexico, and is coming off a strong 2013, on a gain of nearly 25 percent for the full year.

In the new year, however, shares have struggled slightly, off about 6 percent, including Friday’s gains. Canaccord’s decision to upgrade EPL was based on valuation, as the company is trading at just over 9 times earnings, significantly behind the industry average of around five times greater than that.

Furthermore, the ratings firm gave Energy Partners’ stock a price target of $37, a significant premium on the company’s current share price of $28. Though an independent explorer/driller, the company is not one of those whose revenues and profits are tied to the onshore “shale boom” of recent years.

Instead, Canaccord believes that the company’s offshore assets are of high-quality. EPL is currently sitting on at least 77.5 million barrels of oil equivalent, and owns interests in at least 37 different producing fields in the Gulf of Mexico shelf.

If nothing else, today’s upgrade is an indication that the “shale boom,” for all of its magnitude and consequence, is still only one component among several that currently make up the US “energy revolution,” and that more traditional wells, as well as other types of unconventional sources, will continue to play a significant role going forward.
