Pioneer Natural Resources (ticker: PXD) reported third quarter results yesterday, showing net income of $411 million, or $2.39 per share.

The company produced 288 MBOEPD in the Permian, up 5% from the previous quarter. This is at the high end of guidance, driven by 7% growth in Permian oil production.
