Denbury Resources (NYSE:DNR)‘s stock had its “neutral” rating restated by Zacks in a research note issued on Wednesday. They currently have a $18.00 target price on the stock. Zacks‘s price objective would indicate a potential upside of 7.02% from the company’s current price.

Zacks’ analyst wrote, “We are reiterating our Neutral recommendation for Denbury Resources. With its unique profile, compelling economics and unmatched infrastructure, Denbury is nicely positioned to deliver long-term sustainable growth. The Cedar Creek Anticline (CCA) deal adds to Denbury’s inventory of tertiary projects and emphasizes its synergies with the existing carbon dioxide infrastructure. Additional positives for Denbury include a strong financial position, low-risk investments and an active divestment policy. However, the company’s second quarter 2014 earnings were lower year over year due to lower price realization, as well as higher lease operating expenses and depletion, depreciation and amortization. We remain cautious due to high cost levels associated with the tertiary oil recovery method and harsh weather conditions that may restrict the activity level. “
