Marathon Oil upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Mizuho

Mizuho analyst Paul Sankey upgraded Marathon Oil to Buy while lowering his price target for the shares to $27 from $28. The stock continues to trade at a discount to large-cap peers despite a "clear trajectory" for free cash flow growth and increasing cash return via share repurchase, Sankey tells investors in a research note. He thinks concerns about future execution in the Northern Delaware and Oklahoma are more than offset by valuation and core extension in both the Bakken and Eagle Ford.

Marathon Oil upgraded to Outperform at BMO Capital on valuation
BMO Capital analyst Phillip Jungwith upgraded Marathon Oil to Outperform from Market Perform and kept his $25 price target, citing the recent broader market pullback, expectations for a strong 2018 second half execution, and differentiated free cash flow / "competitive production growth" in 2019. The analyst also notes his recent meetings with the company's management, which have added to his confidence in Marathon Oil's ability to balance free cash flow deployment with shareholder returns.

Marathon Oil price target raised to $27 from $25 at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Arun Jayaram raised his price target for Marathon Oil to $27 after performing a deep dive analysis on the company's key Bakken and Eagle Ford assets. The analyst believes it is still premature to book profits following recent share gains as he believes the combination of a "still discounted" valuation, "strong" operating momentum, and "robust" free cash flow generation supports further outperformance from here. He keeps an Overweight rating on shares of Marathon Oil.
