"While solid 2H11 production trends and well performance saw EOG raise FY12 liquids production guidance to 30% (from 27%) at 4Q results, a number of factors confused the street," Deutsche Bank analysts wrote in a March 30 report. "Namely: flat 1H12 liquids guidance and the decision to sell liquids volumes (~3 mboepd) to support the funding gap. We have revised our per play model to reflect year end disclosure and the 2012 development plan. Our work suggests that net of asset sales and assuming 25% declines in 'other' liquids production (non- Eagle Ford, Combo, Bakken) still implies ~40% liquids growth in 2012e. Guidance is still conservative as it implies closer to ~50% declines from 'other' liquids."Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 0.6% Rated "B (Buy)" by TheStreet Ratings: The company's fourth-quarter gross profit margin increased from the previous year. EOG Resources has weak liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 0.83, which demonstrates a lack of ability to meet its short-term cash needs. In the fourth quarter, stockholders' net worth increased 23.54% from the prior year. TheStreet Ratings' price target is $126.61.
Werner Enterprises "We continue to favor names levered to the capex cycle, although WERN is becoming intriguing on a relative basis given (1) its historically high-end discount to the group (16% currently vs. 6% historically), and (2) the opportunity for further margin improvement," Jefferies analysts wrote in a March 6 report. Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 0.8% Rated "A (Buy)" by TheStreet Ratings: The company's fourth-quarter gross profit margin was basically the same as it was the previous year. Werner Enterprises has average liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 1.23, which shows the company can technically meet its short-term cash needs. In the fourth quarter, stockholders' net worth increased 8.39% from the prior year. TheStreet Ratings' price target is $28.69.
