Murphy Excels in the Third Quarter, but Full-Year Outlook Is a Disappointment

Dave Meats Director

Analyst Note

| Dave Meats |

We're raising our fair value estimate for Murphy Oil to $34 from $33 after taking a second look at the firm's third-quarter financial and operating results. That leaves shares looking rich at the current level, consistent with other exploration and production, or E&P stocks. Broadly, we think the market is extrapolating the current and very favorable oil price environment too far into the future. To get our model to match the market price we'd have to raise our midcycle forecast for WTI crude to about $65/bbl from $55/bbl, even though the marginal supply cost is unlikely to be that high.
