The strong YoY increase in Devon Energy’s 4Q17 production as well as the higher realized prices for crude oil (USO), natural gas (UNG), and natural gas liquids are expected to impact DVN’s revenues positively. (We’ll assess DVN’s production in the next part of this series.)
According to Reuters, for 4Q17, the components of the S&P 500 Index (SPY) are expected to report blended revenue growth of almost 8% when compared with that of 4Q16. With its YoY estimated blended revenue growth of ~20% in 4Q17, the energy sector is expected to drive the S&P 500’s revenue growth in 4Q17.
Excluding the energy sector, the blended revenue growth for the S&P 500 is estimated to be ~7%. DVN’s revenue growth is thus outperforming the energy sector as well as the S&P 500.
