Chesapeake liquidity better but debt still too high, says UBS

UBS analyst William Featherston previewed the Chesapeake analyst day and said he expects management to shift from its defensive strategy over the last two years to a more offensive one by targeting annual volume growth to resume in 2018. The analyst said the company's liquidity position has improved, but the debt level still remains too high. Featherston maintained his Sell rating and $4.50 price target on Chesapeake shares.

Chesapeake initiated with an Underperform at FBR Capital
FBR Capital analyst Joseph Allman started Chesapeake Energy with an Underperform rating and $5 price target. The company's "debt and transportation commitments hole still appears too deep to dig out of," Allman tells investors in a research note. He views Chesapeake's equity as "significantly overvalued" and thinks the company's financial condition "will continue to be stressed."
