Bank of America reaffirmed their neutral rating on shares of EOG Resources (NYSE: EOG) in a report issued on Friday. They currently have a $140.00 target price on the stock, up from their previous target price of $135.00.
“EOG delivered another solid quarter. It also delivered a stellar resource update with material additions in both the Eagleford and Permian adding to an already impressive drilling inventory. However additions are long dated. Accordingly, the value implications are modest and with this backdrop the story has not materially changed. While this makes for consistent performance by management it is no more than is already captured in a multiple we believe discounts delivery. Modest adjustments to the drilling pace (more oil, less gas) nudges our PO to $140; but vs other stocks we continue to view EOG as priced for perfection. Neutral.,” Bank of America’s analyst wrote.
