Insight from TheStreet's Research Team:
EOG Resources is a core holding of Jim Cramer's Action Alerts PLUS Charitable Trust Portfolio. During the most recent weekly roundup, this is what Jim Cramer, Portfolio Manager and Jack Mohr, Director of Research - Action Alerts PLUS had to say about the stock:
EOG Resources (EOG:NYSE; $98.90; 900 shares; 3.41%; Sector: Energy): Few companies, if any, have benefited more from the U.S. shale revolution than EOG, which has been a leader in discovering and exploiting unconventional oil plays. Being at the leading edge in exploration expertise has enabled the company to build large-scale, core acreage positions at attractive costs in the two largest unconventional oil plays in the U.S. (Eagle Ford and Bakken).
Capturing the core, maximizing recoveries with innovative completion techniques, and proactively managing cost and marketing logistics has allowed EOG to deliver leading oil production growth and returns on capital employed among exploration and production companies (E&Ps). Our target is $110.
