Devon Energy: Analysts Expect More than 70% Upside


Dec. 3 2018, Updated 2:25 p.m. ET

Analysts’ estimates

Devon Energy (DVN) might have an upside of 75.1% in the next 12 months based on analysts’ mean target price. With the current downturn in oil prices and the risk of the WTI-WCS (Western Canada Select) spread, which we discussed in the previous part, such a huge upside isn’t likely. With the recovery in the spread, investors might expect a short-term upside momentum in the stock.
