Increasing Canadian Natural’s Fair Value Estimate

Joe Gemino, CPA Senior Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Joe Gemino, CPA |

After taking a fresh look at Canadian Natural Resources’ fourth-quarter results, we are increasing our fair value estimate to $35 (CAD 44) from $33 (CAD 42) due to our increased near-term commodity price forecast. Despite the uptick in our fair value estimate, the stock is still trading in 3-star territory. In our view, the market is appropriately recognizing the company’s industry-leading corporate cost structure. Furthermore, we are maintaining our no-moat rating.

We provide a platform for our authors to report on investments fairly, accurately, and from the investor’s point of view. We also respect individual opinions––they represent the unvarnished thinking of our people and exacting analysis of our research processes. Our authors can publish views that we may or may not agree with, but they show their work, distinguish facts from opinions, and make sure their analysis is clear and in no way misleading or deceptive.

To further protect the integrity of our editorial content, we keep a strict separation between our sales teams and authors to remove any pressure or influence on our analyses and research.
