Global Hunter Securities maintains a 'Buy' on Swift Energy (NYSE: SFY) price target cut from $51 to $37.

Analyst, Dan Morrison, said, "Swift's Q1 2012 results were below because of two primary culprits: lower realized liquids prices and unexpected cost overruns. Swift's Q1 capex was also much higher than guided, which likely made some investors jittery. Management's 2012-2013 plans still seem to be intact and focused, though as was the case last year, they're facing some headwinds, both within and beyond its control. We remain bullish on Swift's prospects overall this year, but would be more cautious as to how well they can bring the plan to fruition."
