Shares of Anadarko Petroleum (APC) have slid 7% in 2012.
"For the oil & gas companies, we think there are several benefits to Romney winning the Presidential Election," Scott Hanold said. "Several initiatives could gain some traction including the prospects of opening up more drilling in the offshore and on federal land. In particular, Anadarko Petroleum (APC) should be poised to benefit because of its strong track record of success in the offshore provinces around the world, including the Gulf of Mexico where it produces 18-20% of its total volumes."
Oasis Petroleum (OAS) is another stock that could gain from a Romney win. As a 100% Bakken play, it will benefit from the Keystone approval, which will allow it to gain access to high margin markets.Analysts are overwhelmingly bullish on Anadarko, with only four out of 32 rating the stock a hold. There are no sell ratings on the stock.
