Mizuho Securities initiates coverage on Southwestern Energy (NYSE: SWN) with a Buy rating and a price target of $20.00.

Analyst Timothy Rezvan commented, "Street modeling appears overly bearish on SWN shares, now that Southwestern has fixed its balance sheet after its $5.4 billion entry into southwest Appalachia. Steady production declines since 4Q15 should trough by year-end '16. We expect $3+/mcf gas prices will drive organic deleveraging and deliver production and earnings growth in '17. Our work suggests SWN shares trade at less than 7x 2017E EV/EBITDA, and at <$14/shr, we see no value for Appalachia resource potential in SWN shares. Our bullish gas outlook into '17 and our conviction on poor consensus modeling drive our Buy rating."
