    In addition to the Turner, Chesapeake Energy plans to continue its appraisal work on several other formations in the area, including the Niobrara. These rock layers could enhance the company’s growth prospects given what peers like EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG) have uncovered in the area. Last October, EOG Resources unveiled that its appraisal efforts confirmed that the Niobrara and Mowry shale plays underneath its Powder River Basin acreage hold nearly 2 billion BOE of recoverable resources, giving it three high-return growth targets in the region. These results provide more evidence that the Powder River Basin could be a significant growth driver for Chesapeake in the coming years.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Tyler Crowe, Jason Hall, and Matthew DiLallo]

    Matt DiLallo (Williams Companies): This natural gas pipeline giant has had a slow start in 2018. Through the first half of the year, cash flow at the company’s MLP Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) has only increased by about 2%, due mainly to recent asset sales. However, with a major expansion project coming on line, cash flow growth should accelerate in the second half of the year. That project and others in the pipeline have the company on track to grow cash flow 9% in 2018 and another 13% next year.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Overall, earnings at both Williams and its MLP Williams Partners (NYSE:WPZ) were down slightly versus the year-ago period due to asset sales, while cash flow modestly increased thanks to lower interest expenses.

Top 5 Safest Stocks For 2019

The municipal-bond market is dominated by individual investors, and it turns out they’re not nearly as good as the pros.

Over the past decade, individuals earned an average of about 1.26 percentage point less annually on their investments in open-end state and local government bond funds than the funds themselves, according to a study released by Morningstar Inc., which took account of what investors make after shifting their money in and out of the market. That gap was the biggest among the eight asset classes the research company examined.

Even though state and local government debt is one of the world’s safest investments, buyers are still prone to so-called headline risk, or bad news stories that undermine the market’s perception as a haven and cause investors to sell when they should stay put.

That happened in 2010, when banking analyst Meredith Whitney triggered a selloff by predicting that recession-battered governments would default on "hundreds of billions of dollars" of bonds. That forecast proved widely off the mark, and in 2011 municipals returned 11 percent. They haven’t had a better year since.

Top 5 Safest Stocks For 2019: EOG Resources, Inc.(EOG)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG) has done an excellent job enriching its shareholders over the past two decades. Investors, for example, who bought $1,000 of the company’s stock following its separation from Enron 20 years ago would have seen that grow into more than $25,000 over that time frame, which is much better than the $3,200 they’d have made by investing the same amount into the S&P 500.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Leading shale driller EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG) built its business to prosper at $50 a barrel. At that price point, the company can generate enough cash to grow oil production by 16% to 20% this year. And at $60 oil, EOG Resources could produce $1.5 billion in free cash, with even more at current prices. EOG plans to use its incoming windfall to pay off debt and boost its dividend, both of which should grow shareholder value.

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    Here’s how share prices of the largest U.S. natural gas producers reacted to Thursday’s report:

    Exxon Mobil Corp. (NYSE: XOM), the country’s largest producer of natural gas, traded down about 0.3%, at $81.14 in a 52-week range of $72.16 to $89.30. Chesapeake Energy Corp. (NYSE: CHK) traded down about 3.0%, at $4.18 in a 52-week range of $2.53 to $5.60. EOG Resources Inc. (NYSE: EOG) traded down about 1.0% to $116.71. The 52-week range is $86.08 to $131.60.

    Furthermore, the United States Natural Gas ETF (NYSEARCA: UNG) traded down about 0.7%, at $22.77 in a 52-week range of $20.40 to $27.92.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    That prediction would have been unfathomable just a few months ago. While some oil bulls thought prices could surprise to the upside, the consensus outlook was that crude would be in the low to mid $50s this year thanks to surging U.S. oil production. Because of that, most producers based their budgets on oil averaging $50 a barrel, including EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG), Marathon Oil (NYSE:MRO), and Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC). In EOG Resources’ case, $50 oil would provide it with the cash flow to pay a dividend that was 10.4% higher than 2017’s level and drill 690 more wells, which would boost oil production about 18%. Meanwhile, Marathon Oil could produce enough cash at that price point to pay its dividend and fund the new wells needed to boost companywide output 12% compared to last year. Anadarko Petroleum, likewise, could fully fund its dividend and a growth-focused capital plan, which would see it boost oil output 14% this year.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Last fall, ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) outlined its three-year operating plan, anticipating that it could increase production at a 5% compound annual growth rate assuming oil averaged $50 a barrel. While the return to a growth trajectory was nice to see, its forecast paled in comparison to rivals like EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG) and Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC), which both project double-digit oil production growth rates over the next few years.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    ConocoPhillips’ strategy has inspired similar plans by rivals. EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG), for example, has prioritized dividend increases. After a long pause during the oil market downturn, the company restarted its dividend growth engine this year. EOG Resources initially gave its investors a 10.4% raise but followed that up with another 19% increase a few months later, boosting its year-to-date total to 31%. That’s part of EOG Resources’ aim to boost its payout at a more-than-19% compound annual growth rate going forward.

Arguing that Campbell Soup stock is undervalued, Loeb’s Third Point hedge fund is conversing with family members, who control roughly 41% of Campbell’s total shares, as well as other independent investors to encourage Campbell Soup to hire a bank to explore a possible sale of the company. For perspective, last month Campbell announced a broader strategic review of its plans and product portfolio. Now, however, The Post says Loeb is requesting that Campbell Soup abandon all other alternatives to focus exclusively on a sale.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Investors are beginning to wonder if bluebird bio is at risk of losing market share before it really even begins life as a commercial company. The latest example: In September Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN) released promising preliminary data from a small ongoing phase 1 trial, investigating a new immunotherapy as a potential treatment for advanced multiple myeloma. While the initial data release included just five patients, all had failed to respond to between four and six previous treatments. Amgen’s drug, AMG-420, a “simpler” immunotherapy compared to the cellular therapies being developed by bluebird bio and Celgene, resulted in a complete remission in four of them. That’s very impressive.

    EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG) is cashing in on higher oil prices. The company repositioned its business to deliver strong oil growth along with some free cash flow, as long as oil was around $50 a barrel. Meanwhile, with crude well above that level now, the company is in the position to generate substantial free cash flow this year, which gives it lots of financial flexibility.

    Oil producers around the world are already cashing in now that oil prices are in the $70s. Leading U.S. shale driller EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG) is one of them, since it built its business to thrive on $50 crude. Because of that, the company is on pace to generate more than $1.5 billion in free cash flow this year if oil averages $60 a barrel and even more above that level. This windfall has helped drive EOG’s stock up more than 37% over the past year and could give it the fuel to keep going higher.

    While Trump has called for other OPEC nations to pick up the slack from Iran, it’s worth pointing out that OPEC isn’t the only group of producers that have been standing pat as prices soar. Oil companies in the U.S. have shown no desire to boost spending or drill more wells in response to higher oil prices. EOG Resources (NYSE:EOG), which is one the largest shale drillers in the country, said, “2018 is all about maintaining our disciplined capital growth program.” Because of that, EOG Resources is sticking to its $5.8 billion capital budget. While that’s enough money to grow its oil production 16%, EOG could increase output even faster at current prices. At $60 a barrel, the company could boost production at a 25% compound annual rate through 2020. However, instead of ramping up to that rate, the company is on pace to generate more than $1.5 billion in excess cash this year as long as oil averages $60 a barrel.
