Seeking Alpha: Differentials All The Difference For Cabot Oil And Gas

There are a lot of numbers supporting an argument that Cabot Oil & Gas (COG) is one of, if not the, best dry gas producers in the country. The company has shown exceptional capital productivity, as well as low lifting and finding & development costs. Add that to some top-notch acreage in the Marcellus, and Cabot has delivered top-notch adjusted production growth and returns on employed capital.

That's not what is driving the shares right now, though. All of the positives at Cabot seem to be taking a back seat to worries that production growth in the Marcellus will overwhelm takeaway capacity and force Cabot to accept weak differentials. This is most definitely a risk, as every $0.25/mmbtu has a roughly $5 to $6 impact on NAV, but I believe growth-hungry midstream and pipeline companies will address these infrastructure challenges, leaving Cabot meaningfully undervalued today.
