Halliburton Co
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly

We again reiterate this global oilfield service providers as a TOP PICK.  Continued positive outlooks for oil prices will stimulate demand for their services, causing analysts to expect over 30% growth in cash flow.  Quarterly cash reserves are growing again while debt is retired and shares bought back.  It trades at 13x earnings and supports a 30% ROE.  We recommend trailing up the stop (from $33) to $35 at this time, looking to achieve $47 -- upside potential over 20%.  Yield 1.6%

With oil prices holding over $80 and global oil demand expected to hit all time highs this year,  we reiterate this global energy giant.  We like that quarterly cash reserves are growing, while debt is retired and shares bought back.  It trades at 13x earnings and supports a 30% ROE.  We recommend trailing up the stop (from $28) to $33, looking to achieve $47 — 21% upside potential.  Yield 1.7%

TOP PICK
Halliburton Co
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly

Recently reported operating income was up 33%, despite their exit from Russia in 2022.  Cash reserves are stable, while debt is retired and shares bought back.  It trades at 13x earnings, 3.5x book (a little expensive), and supports a robust 30% ROE.  Its dividend is backed by a payout ratio under 25% of cash flow.  We recommend setting a stop-loss at $28, looking to achieve $47 -- upside potential of 28%.  Yield 1.7%

BUY
Halliburton Co

They just topped EPS, but missed revenues, with US revenue falling sequentially.  Guidance was positive with oilfield services to remain strong; their international business will drive growth (i.e. Middle East, Africa). They're also confident about their construction business.

The time to buy oil stocks was over a month ago, not now after the price of crude as surged. Where were these "buy" experts? He just sold some shares of HAL into strength to take profits.

oil outlook

Is bearish because Russia will keep selling deceitfully its oil around the world to fund its Ukraine war. Given this, he trimmed HAL.

Halliburton Co
It reports Tuesday. The stock is getting crushed, even though earnings are oil are soaring. It's time to reassess this. A fine stock to hold for years.

BUY ON WEAKNESS
Halliburton Co
They delivered a pretty good report yesterday, but Baker Hughes' report today dragged down this and other oil stocks. HAL is a much better company than BH. He added more shares today and yesterday. HAL reported a modest top and bottom line beat, but investors who took profits picked on the slightly disappointing margins. HAL raised its 35% growth forecast for this year over the previous 25% forecast; and they noted new projects starting later this year. Meanwhile, international business is gaining momentum this quarter. HAL said there was already supply tightness before the Russian war. The stock trades at a reasonable valuation and is a definite buy on the current dip.

PAST TOP PICK
Halliburton Co
(A Top Pick Mar 21/19, Down 35%) He sold this recently. Do you have the sell discipline or will you hang on and hope. Selling at a loss is tough to do. But consider what if you hadn't sold that stock a few years after selling it.

COMMENT
Halliburton Co
It's beaten up with all oil companies. HAL is one of the biggest oil service companies in the world. One problem is domestic: a presence in the Permian Basin where it's been a big problem getting oil to market (no pipelines). This problem is starting to do well and things should improve.

TOP PICK
Halliburton Co
They are trading at a 10 year low. They are bottoming but things are improving. The oil supply has righted itself. There were pipelines issues that have been largely overcome. Given the changing fundamentals, this is in a good position for the next couple of years. (Analysts’ price target is $38.45)

PAST TOP PICK
Halliburton Co

(A Top Pick November 10/17 - Down 5%.) Continuous to like it. They have had some issues similar to what Canadian companies have in terms of not being able to get the product out. Not enough pipelines. It is happening in the Permian Basin, in Texas. Easier to solve there. He is expecting $2 a share in 2018 in terms of earnings and $3 next year and the stock is going to reflect that.
