Canaccord Genuity reiterates a 'Buy' on SM Energy (NYSE: SM) price target raised from $108 to $110.

Analyst, John Gerdes, said, "We are raising our target price due to lower cash expense partly offset by lower Q1 production. While the company recently experienced a modest production hiccup, operating expenses were almost 15% below guidance. SM offers twice the sector upside to our target as it trades at a ~20% discount (’12E EBITDA) though we expect it should generate 20% greater CFPS growth through ’13."
