Analysts at Nomura released a new report in which they initiated coverage on a long list of stocks within the U.S. Energy sector.

The report focused on Exploration and Production (E&P) companies.


Analysts have a bullish view on North American E&P overall, despite noting that the S&P 500 is at all-time highs.

Analysts believe that oil prices, which are down nearly 50 percent in the past year, drive the performance of many E&P stocks, and they believe that a recovery in oil prices is coming in the near future.

Analysts initiated mostly bullish coverage on the following stocks:

  • Concho Resources (NYSE: CXO)-Buy, $149 target
