KLR Group upgraded Gulfport Energy (NASDAQ: GPOR) from Accumulate to Buy with a price target of $37.00 (from $39.00).

Analyst John Gerdes commented, "We are upgrading GPOR from Accumulate to Buy though our target price is decreasing $2 to $37 per share given slightly higher capital intensity. GPOR has depreciated almost 20% since our June downgrade, underperforming the sector by a comparable percentage, and now reflects sufficient equity value upside to merit an upgrade to Buy.

Our ’16 production expectation of ~695 Mmcfepd is at the low end of company guidance (695-730 Mmcfepd). Our ’17 production growth expectation of ~22% approximates the midpoint of preliminary guidance (20%-25%)."
