Guru Investment Theses on Newfield Exploration Co

Baron Funds Comments on Newfield Exploration - Mar 16, 2017

Newfield Exploration Co. (NYSE:NFX) is an independent E&P company focused on shale oil fields in Oklahoma, Utah, and North Dakota. Shares fell in the fourth quarter after the company reported quarterly results that fell short of analyst expectations despite raised production guidance and increased activity in its highest return assets in Oklahoma. We like shares at these prices and believe there is more upside to resource potential and opportunities for Newfield to sell non-core assets to accelerate development of its higher return assets.
