JPMorgan upgraded Marathon Oil (NYSE: MRO) from Neutral to Overweight with a price target of $20.00.

Analyst Arun Jayaram likes the company's unique combination of growth, FCF and the valuation. The analyst belives the current valuation discount being ascribed by the market is not justified citing competitive growth rates and robust FCF generation (modeling $1.0 billion in FCF at the strip between 2018-2020 after management covers the $170 million in annual dividend payments).
