EOG Resources’ Q1 Profit Rises, Beating View (EOG)

Oil and natural gas producer EOG Resources, Inc. ( EOG ) late Thursday said its first quarter profit rose almost 14% from last year, as adjusted results beat analyst expectations.

The Houston-based company reported first quarter net income of $134 million, or 52 cents per share, compared with $118 million, or 46 cents per share, in the year-ago period. Excluding one-time items, adjusted profit was 68 cents per share.

Net revenue surged 38% from last year to $1.897 billion, driven by sharply higher oil and natural gas selling prices.

On average, Wall Street analysts expected a smaller adjusted profit of 54 cents per share, on much lower revenue of $1.62 billion.

CEO Mark Papa commented, "These positive results across the board are a direct reflection of our shift in portfolio mix to a greater focus on crude oil and liquids that began more than four years ago."

EOG shares rose $3.55, or +3.4%, in premarket trading Friday.
