It reported a strong third quarter, with production at the top end of the guidance and steady downspacing in the Eagle Ford. SM Energy’s diverse asset mix, promising organic production growth outlook and ample liquidity bode well for its future growth. Going forward it’s holdings in the Eagle Ford, Bakken, Niobrara, Haynesville and Granite Wash provide multiple years of drilling inventory.

UBS AG (NYSE:UBS) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks from a neutral rating to an underperform rating. The firm currently has $19.00 target price on the stock. Zacks’ analyst wrote, “UBS AG has been witnessing decreasing earnings estimates over the last 30 days, which caused Zacks to downgrade to Underperform from Neutral. Moreover, the company’s third-quarter 2013 earnings substantially lagged the prior-quarter income. The quarterly results were impacted by elevated net charges for litigation and regulatory matters. Moreover, reduced net interest and trading revenues were recorded. Amid the overall economic volatility and the Eurozone debt crisis, the company is focused on building its capital level. Though restructuring initiatives taken during 2012 are encouraging, given the stressed operating environment, we believe any significant improvement in earnings would remain elusive in the upcoming quarters.”
