Canaccord Genuity maintains a 'Buy' on Cabot Oil & Gas (NYSE: COG) price target of $66.00.

Analyst, John Gerdes, said, "We are maintaining our COG target price after a minor production outage related to a Lathrop compressor station fire. Our ’12 production growth estimate fell one percentage point to 60% though is 10 percentage points above company guidance (35-50%)."

"Next year, we believe Cabot should generate almost 4x the production growth while spending ~40% less than cash flow as these peers spend ~40% beyond cash flow. Accordingly, we see ~50% upside to COG shares even in a long-term $4 gas price environment while EQT (NYSE: EQT), Range Resources (NYSE: RRC), Southwestern (NYSE: SWN) and Ultra Petroleum (NYSE: UPL) have ~30% downside in this bear-case scenario."
