Pandemic Blues To Weigh On Antero Resources Stock?

AR: Antero Resources logo
Antero Resources

The shares of Antero Resources (NYSE: AR) have reached 2018 levels assisted by the surge in natural gas prices which has benefited operating cash flows and subsequently debt retirals. The company is engaged in exploration and production of natural gas and natural gas liquids in the Appalachian Basin. Antero’s financials took a hit last year as natural gas prices tanked – triggering a plunge in the stock. Despite the company’s de-leveraging strategy to lower price risk, Trefis believes that the stock has reached its near-term potential. Moreover, the uncertain demand environment due to the coronavirus crisis, coupled with rising production volumes in the U.S., are likely to weigh on oil & gas benchmark prices.

So, is Antero Resources stock likely to recover in the coming weeks and months or is a decline more likely? Per the Trefis machine learning engine which analyzes historical stock price movements, AR stock has a 47% chance of a rise over the next month (21 trading days).
