Comstock Resources (CRK) Upgraded to Buy by Zacks Investment Research

Comstock Resources (NYSE:CRK) was upgraded by Zacks Investment Research from a “hold” rating to a “buy” rating in a research report issued to clients and investors on Thursday. The firm presently has a $6.50 price objective on the oil and gas producer’s stock. Zacks Investment Research‘s price target indicates a potential upside of 18.40% from the company’s current price.

According to Zacks, “Shares of Comstock have gained more than 16% over the past three months, easily outperforming the Zacks Oil & Gas U.S. E&P industry's 0.4% increase during the same period. In particular, Comstock's large acreage position in the prolific Haynesville/Bossier Shale play provides a multi-year inventory of low-risk development drilling opportunities that continues to achieve excellent results even in this difficult operating environment. Supplemented with a low-cost structure, CRK remains well positioned to maintain a strong growth trajectory in the near- to-medium term. A 27% jump in its proved reserves is set to provide further impetus this year. Consequently, we view Comstock as an attractive investment.”
