NEW YORK (

TheStreet

)

-- Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation

(NYSE:

COG

) has been upgraded by TheStreet Ratings from hold to buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its expanding profit margins, increase in net income, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and increase in stock price during the past year. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity.

Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation engages in the development, exploitation, and exploration of oil and gas properties in North America. The company's reserves are focused in both conventional and unconventional basins in Appalachia, the Rocky Mountains, the Mid-Continent, and the Gulf Coast. The company has a P/E ratio of 45.8, equal to the average energy industry P/E ratio and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 22.7. Cabot Oil & Gas has a market cap of $4.1 billion and is part of the
