Analyst Commentary

From KLR Group:
We are increasing our DVN target price $9 to $62 per share due to approximately 10% lower capital intensity (focus on core plays), slightly higher U.S. liquids price realizations and lower other expense. Our composite weighted average cost-of-capital values the midstream business at ~11x next year’s cash generation (EnLink Midstream LLC (ENLC, $19.30, NR)/EnLink Midstream Partners (ENLK, $19.16, NR) valuation).
Lower capital intensity underpins improvement in capital yield
Devon’s mid-cycle capital yield improved by ~20% to ~115% primarily due to lower asset capital intensity and secondarily higher U.S. liquids price realizations and lower other expense. The company’s capital yield remains inferior to the industry median cash recycle ratio of ~140% largely due to Devon’s lower cash margin given its U.S. production composition (~30% oil).
