••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Guru Investment Theses on Encana Corp

Baron Funds Comments on Encana Corp - Mar 16, 2017

Encana Corp. (NYSE:ECA) is an E&P company with operations in Western Canada and Texas. The stock rose in the fourth quarter after Encana reported production guidance that beat Street expectations, a solid multi-year growth outlook, and lower cash costs. Encana has strong positions in two of the more attractive oil plays in the Permian and Eagle Ford Basins and two of the lowest cost natural gas basins in Western Canada. We believe Encana is one of the most attractively valued E&P companies with strong long-term growth and returns potential.

Baron Energy and Resources Fund Comments on Encana Corp - Nov 21, 2016

Encana Corp. (NYSE:ECA) is an E&P company with primary operations in Western Canada and Texas. Shares rose in the third quarter on raised production guidance, lowered cash costs, and significantly increased drilling activity in its highest return area. Encana has strong positions in two of the more attractive oil resource plays in the Permian and Eagle Ford basins and two of the lowest cost natural gas resource basins in Western Canada. Given its long-term growth potential, we think Encana is one of the most attractively valued E&Ps in the industry.

David Funds Comments on Encana - Aug 31, 2016

Our fourth representative holding is the Canadian shale oil and gas company Encana (NYSE:ECA), a business that fits all three of these criteria. Based on global supply and demand projections for oil, we do not believe the current price of $45 per barrel is sustainable.10 In our view, oil prices will have to increase significantly over time to provide enough supply to meet growing global demand. In addition, because Encana’s reserves are located in the core of four of the top six shale areas in North America, Encana’s costs to develop and produce oil and gas are quite low.



Moreover, Encana’s reserves of oil and gas are so large the company has decades of production ahead based on current production levels.



Finally, when Doug Suttles became CEO in 2013 he promptly reduced the territories on which the company focuses to four core areas. A willingness to shrink and focus is rare and is a key trait of successful CEOs. Suttles has also executed well by ensuring Encana’s survival during the energy downturn through hedges and asset sales and increased operating efficiency by rapidly bringing well costs down. Based on our conservative estimate of the long-term sustainable price for oil and gas, Encana is trading at 12 times 2018 owner earnings, which is highly attractive considering we expect the company to increase production at a rate of 15% a year for many years to come.

Encana Reaches Agreement to Sell Gordondale Assets for C$625 Million
CALGARY, AB--(Marketwired - June 21, 2016) - (TSX: ECA)(NYSE: ECA)Encana Corporation announced today that it has reached an agreement to sell its Gordondale assets in northwestern Alberta to Birchcliff Energy Ltd. (TSX: BIR) for a total cash consideration of C$625 million. The sale includes approximately 54,200 net acres of land and associated infrastructure. In addition, through the transfer of current and future obligations, Encana is reducing midstream and downstream commitments by more than C$100 million on an undiscounted basis. No drilling or completions capital has been spent or was planned for the area in 2016.As highlighted at Encana's recent Montney Investor Day in May 2016, the company has a large inventory of high-quality potential drilling locations in the play. Following this sale, Encana's Montney play will comprise of over 9,000 potential drilling locations with two-thirds of those wells located in the condensate-rich part of the play. "We are tightening our portfolio and sharpening our focus in the Montney where we expect to grow liquids production to 50,000 barrels per day by the end of 2018," said Doug Suttles, Encana President & CEO. "This transaction further strengthens our balance sheet and gives us greater financial flexibility as we look to the future."Encana's Gordondale assets produced an average of 25,200 barrels of oil equivalent (BOE) per day on a net after-royalty basis during the first quarter of 2016, comprising 65 percent natural gas and 35 percent liquids. Based on Encana's development plan at year-end 2015, estimated proved reserves were approximately 50 million barrels of oil equivalent (MMBOE) on a net after-royalty basis.The sale of Encana's Gordondale assets is subject to the satisfaction of normal closing conditions, as well as regulatory approvals and post-closing adjustments. The transaction is expected to close in the summer of 2016 with an effective date of January 1, 2016.RBC Capital Markets advised Encana on the transaction. Encana CorporationEncana is a leading North American energy producer that is focused on developing its strong portfolio of resource plays, held directly and indirectly through its subsidiaries, producing natural gas, oil and natural gas liquids (NGLs). By partnering with employees, community organizations and other businesses, Encana contributes to the strength and sustainability of the communities where it operates. Encana common shares trade on the Toronto and New York stock exchanges under the symbol ECA.ADVISORY REGARDING OIL AND GAS INFORMATION - Reserves are the estimated remaining quantities of oil and natural gas and related substances anticipated to be recoverable from known accumulations, from a given date forward, based on: analysis of drilling, geological, geophysical and engineering data, the use of established technology, and specified economic conditions, which are generally accepted as being reasonable. Proved reserves are those reserves which can be estimated with a high degree of certainty to be recoverable. It is likely that the actual remaining quantities recovered will exceed the estimated proved reserves.The conversion of natural gas volumes to BOE is on the basis of six thousand cubic feet to one barrel. BOE is based on a generic energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent economic value equivalency at the wellhead. Readers are cautioned that BOE may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation.This news release discloses potential drilling locations, which include proved, probable, contingent and unbooked locations. These estimates are prepared internally based on Encana's prospective acreage and an assumption as to the number of wells that can be drilled per section based on industry practice and internal review. Approximately 20 percent of these locations were booked as either reserves or resources, as prepared by independent qualified reserves evaluators using forecast prices and costs as of December 31, 2015. Unbooked locations do not have attributed reserves or resources and have been identified by management as an estimation of Encana's multi-year drilling activities based on evaluation of applicable geologic, seismic, engineering, production and reserves information. There is no certainty that Encana will drill all unbooked locations and if drilled there is no certainty that such locations will result in additional oil and gas reserves, resources or production. The locations on which Encana will actually drill wells, including the number and timing thereof is ultimately dependent upon the availability of capital, regulatory and partner approvals, seasonal restrictions, equipment and personnel, oil and natural gas prices, costs, actual drilling results, additional reservoir information that is obtained, production rate recovery, transportation constraints and other factors. While certain of the unbooked locations have been de-risked by drilling existing wells in relative close proximity to such locations, many of other unbooked locations are farther away from existing wells where management has less information about the characteristics of the reservoir and therefore there is more uncertainty whether wells will be drilled in such locations and if drilled there is more uncertainty that such wells will result in additional proved or probable reserves, resources or production.ADVISORY REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS - This news release contains certain forward-looking statements or information (collectively, "forward-looking statements" or "FLS") within the meaning of applicable securities legislation. FLS include, but are not limited to: expected proceeds from the sale of the Gordondale assets, the use of proceeds therefrom, the expectation that the closing conditions and regulatory approvals will be satisfied and the timing of closing thereof; expected reduction in midstream and downstream commitments; potential drilling locations, including quantity, quality and commodity composition; growth of liquids production in the Montney and timeframe thereof; and impact of the transaction to strengthen the balance sheet and provide greater financial flexibility.Readers are cautioned against unduly relying on FLS which, by their nature, involve numerous assumptions, risks and uncertainties that may cause such statements not to occur, or for results to differ materially from those expressed or implied. These assumptions include: enforceability of the agreement; the ability of the parties to satisfy closing conditions and regulatory approvals; the value of adjustments to the expected proceeds from the transaction; assumptions contained in Encana's 2016 corporate guidance and in this news release; data contained in key modeling statistics; effectiveness of Encana's resource play hub model to drive productivity and efficiencies; and expectations and projections made in light of, and generally consistent with, Encana's historical experience and its perception of historical trends, including with respect to the pace of technological development, the benefits achieved and general industry expectations.Risks and uncertainties that may affect these business outcomes include: risks inherent to closing the transaction including whether it will close on a timely basis or at all; adjustments that may reduce the expected proceeds to Encana; commodity price volatility; counterparty and credit risk; imprecision of reserves estimates and estimates of recoverable quantities of natural gas and liquids from resource plays and other sources not currently classified as proved, probable or possible reserves or economic contingent resources, including future net revenue estimates; risks associated with past and future divestitures of certain assets or other transactions or receive amounts contemplated under the transaction agreements (such transactions may include third-party capital investments, farm-outs or partnerships, which Encana may refer to from time to time as "partnerships" or "joint ventures" and the funds received in respect thereof which Encana may refer to from time to time as "proceeds", "deferred purchase price" and/or "carry capital", regardless of the legal form) as a result of various conditions not being met; and other risks and uncertainties impacting Encana's business, as described in its most recent MD&A, financial statements, Annual Information Form and Form 40-F, as filed on SEDAR and EDGAR.Although Encana believes the expectations represented by such FLS are reasonable, there can be no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct.
