Energy Stocks: Winners and Losers

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Baker Hughes (BHI - Get Report), Teekay LNG Partners (TGP - Get Report) and Frontline (FTO) emerged as top gainers in the energy industry last week, while Trina Solar (TSL - Get Report), Apache (APA - Get Report) and Murphy Oil (MUR - Get Report) headed the losers' list.

Baker Hughes gained 14.1%, topping the energy gainers, after announcing higher-than-expected earnings for the fourth quarter. Citigroup raised its target for Baker Hughes to $63 from $58, while maintaining a hold rating. Morgan Stanley raised its price target to $100 from $90, and maintained an overweight rating.

Teekay LNG Partners rose 13%. During the week, the company declared a cash distribution of 63 cents a unit for the fourth quarter, implying an increase of 3 cents, or 5% from the prior quarter.

"The partnership's growing portfolio of long-term, fixed-rate charters continues to provide a stable and increasing base of distributable cash flow," said Peter Evensen, CEO of Teekay, in a press release. "Today's distribution increase primarily reflects the incremental distributable cash flow resulting from the partnership's November 2010 acquisition of a 50% interest in two LNG carriers under long-term, fixed-rate charters with Excelerate Energy LP."

Carbo Ceramics (CRR) advanced 12.8% after reporting fourth-quarter earnings of 90 cents a share vs. consensus of 79 cents. The stock was raised to outperform at BMO Capital markets, while Global Hunter Securities cut the rating to accumulate from buy.
