Oppenheimer lowered its price target on Outperform-rated Devon Energy (NYSE: DVN) from $75 to $67 primarily due to lower US natural gas prices.

"DVN's earnings and cash flow are highly leveraged to US natural gas prices," the analyst notes. "It has 38% of its estimated 2013 gas production hedged at $3.90/mcf and 10% of its 2014 gas volume hedged at $4.09/mcf. DVN has $6B in foreign bank accounts and is waiting for potential tax reform before repatriating this cash, which could be used to fund a large buyback program to boost its stock price. DVN shares do not reflect any takeover premium, as they are 55% below their 2007 peak. Our estimates reflect updated commodity prices."
