In a research report issued today, MLV analyst Chad Mabry maintained a Buy rating on Halcon Resources Corp (NYSE:HK) and raised the price target to $3.00 (from $2.50), which implies an upside of 46% from current levels.
Mabry said, “Raising price target to $3 on improving outlook; Buy rating reiterated HK has been on the defensive ever since the oil price downturn exposed balance sheet and liquidity concerns. But positive surprises in the form of a very strong reserve report and the reaffirmation of its borrowing base are helping to prove such concerns overdone. We’re increasing our NAV-based price target to $3 (from $2.50) and reiterating our Buy rating on the update. We expect HK to get back on offense as oil prices continue to recover”
