Murphy Shares Starting to Look Pricey After Rally

Analyst Note

| Dave Meats, CFA |

We have nudged our fair value for Murphy Oil to $26 from $25, after incorporating the firm's third-quarter financial and operating results. That's about 25% higher than where shares were trading as recently as September, but since then the stock has surged higher along with near-term oil prices. We think the market has gotten carried away and is mistakenly extrapolating spot prices. Our midcycle forecast is unchanged at $60 Brent.
