MLV Maintains Buy On Goodrich Petroleum, Sees 332% Upside
MLV analyst Chad Mabry maintained a Buy rating on Goodrich Petroleum (NYSE:GDP) with a price target of $34.00, which represents a potential upside of 332% from where the stock is currently trading.
Mabry wrote, “We’d highlight that the company’s rig contracts offer flexibility for it to scale down as market conditions dictate: 1 rig contract is well-by-well, another expires in March 2015, and another expires in May 2015. We’re lowering our 2015 capex to ~$220 million (from ~$310) to reflect GDP’s high-graded activity (essentially all TMS). Our 2015 production forecast is reduced to ~70 MMcfe/d (42% gas) from ~80 MMcfe/d (50% gas) due to the removal of Beckville/Minden for its sale (see below). We’d note that GDP has hedged >50% of 2015e oil sales at ~$96/Bbl. We remain buyers of GDP on oversold conditions for the TMS, which do not appear warranted given results from the play to date.”
