Williams Capital Views Gulfport Stock's Underperformance As An Opportunity To Buy


Williams Capital initiates coverage on Gulfport Energy Corporation (NASDAQ: GPOR) with Buy rating and $36 price target. The analysts view the share price underperformance as an opportunity to buy a high quality Utica shale player with a visible peer-leading production and reserve growth profile.
