Canaccord Genuity upgraded PDC Energy (NASDAQ: PETD) from Hold to Buy, price target lowered from $42 to $41.

Analyst, John Gerdes, said, "We are raising our rating on PETD to BUY as we believe strong Wattenberg field results should drive oil/cash flow growth, a guidance beat and equity performance. PDC shares present less upside to our target than the sector’s ~40% given a Utica premium that seems fair though is not included in our target. Successful stacked Niobrara/Codell tests or Utica exploration/monetization would offer further upside potential."
