Top 5 Oil Stocks To Watch For 2018: Marathon Oil Corporation(MRO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By WWW.THESTREET.COM]

    Cramer said he tried to buck this trend by investing in EOG Resources (EOG) and Marathon Oil (MRO) but was wrong on both counts. In the case of EOG, even having the best properties wasn’t enough to ward off the collapse in oil prices. Meanwhile, Marathon’s decision to spin off its refining business left it with no cushion to stem its losses.

    Marathon Oil Corporation (NYSE: MRO) shares were up a whopping 209.9% at $18.08 on Wednesday, and the 70.5 million shares at the close was almost 5 times normal trading volume. Marathon Oil has a consensus analyst price target of $18.12 and a 52-week trading range of $6.52 to $18.55. The company has a total market cap of $15 billion.

    Shares of Marathon Oil jumped 21% to $18.06, while the S&P 500 fell 0.3% to 2,198.81, and the Energy Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLE) climbed 5.1% to $74.43.

    In a note published on Nov. 21, Morgan Stanley’sEvan Calio and team named Marathon Oil as one of the four stocks they expected to outperform if OPEC actually delivered a production cut:


    Beta Should Lead At The Start of A Rally: Best ideas in the first leg up: Marathon Oil, Devon Energy (DVN), Anadarko Petroleum (APC), and Continental Resources (CLR). If OPEC announces a cut, whether moderate or deep, we expect that in the initial move up, moderate value beta names, like Marathon Oil, Devon Energy, Anadarko Petroleum, andContinental Resources will lead.For a $5 increase in oil prices, we estimate 2017 cash flow per share would increase 12-18% for these stocks vs. the remainder of the group at 12%. Of these four, short interest is modest for all exceptContinental Resources at 25%, among the highest in our universe. Outperformance of these names should be driven by investors adding to long positions, not short covering.


    Good call. Not only did Marathon soar, but Devon Energy jumped 15% to $48.33, Anadarko Petroleum climbed 15% to $69.15, and Continental Resources surged 23% to $58.01.

Those inputs remain low, and Phillips 66 is minting cash as a result.
