UPDATE: Canaccord Genuity Downgrades Pioneer Natural Resources to Hold, Lowers PT
In a report published Friday, Canaccord Genuity downgraded its rating on Pioneer Natural Resources (NYSE: PXD) from Buy to Hold, and lowered its price target from $115.00 to $111.00.
Canaccord Genuity noted, “We are lowering our rating to HOLD and reducing our target price $4 to $111 per share due to higher operating and production tax expense.
