JPMorgan analyst Arun Jayaram downgraded EOG Resources (NYSE: EOG) from Overweight to Neutral with a price target of $56.00 (from $62.00).

The analyst comments "We continue to view EOG as a long-term core holding in the space given its premium drilling strategy that is poised to support differentiated returns on capital assuming mid-cycle pricing, but are more cautious on the shares near-term given the potential risk associated with the company's leverage to federal acreage in the New Mexico Delaware and Powder River Basin. We estimate that 50% of EOG’s Delaware Basin and 33% of the company’s PRB locations are located on federal lands. While EOG does have a significant amount of approved permits in hand in both plays and the ability to pivot to other premium plays in its portfolio, we do note that the company derives approximately ~43% of its oil volumes from the Delaware and Powder River Basin plays. In addition, ~29% of our NAV is derived from undeveloped resources in both plays. We are reducing our Dec-20 price target to $56 from $62, which assumes 90% our updated NAV given perceived regulatory risk on federal acreage."
