Canaccord Genuity maintains a 'Buy' on Ultra Petroleum (NYSE: UPL) price target lowered from $30 to $26.

Analyst, John Gerdes, said, "We are lowering our target due to lower capital spending and higher transportation expense partly offset by higher capital productivity. Our ’12 capital spending estimate declined ~$100 million in accordance with Ultra’s guidance while our ’13+ capex estimates fell ~$200 million to ~$900 million. The Southern DJ Basin Niobrara represents Ultra’s best near-term chance to escape the gravitational pull of low natural gas prices...We lowered our ’12 spending estimate ~$100 million though increased our ’12 production outlook 3% to 267 Bcfe."
