The Best Stock in Colorado: Antero Resources

We analyzed publicly traded companies based in the Centennial State to identify the best stock in Colorado to buy now.

We scoured the nation to identify the best stock in every state. Antero Resources (symbol AR) is the publicly traded company we picked in Colorado. The company headquarters is located in Denver.

A word of caution: Since we selected a single stock from each state (plus one from D.C), and choices in some states are sparse, a few of our picks are best suited to investors comfortable with a higher degree of risk. This is not necessarily one of our 51 favorite stocks in the entire U.S., in other words.

Antero Resources is an oil and natural gas exploration and production company that operates primarily in the Marcellus and Utica shale formations in the Appalachian Basin.

Shares have fallen 1.6% since February, when the company reported a loss of $2.92 a share for 2016. The sell-off has left the stock looking cheap given Antero’s potential for growth. Antero’s future natural gas production is hedged (meaning it is locked in at a certain selling price) through 2018 at favorable prices, says CFRA analyst Stewart Glickman. That leaves Antero free to focus on growth through drilling, Glickman says. Antero projects 20% to 22% annualized growth in production through 2020. Even if that seems optimistic, Glickman says the stock is at “historical trough levels” and assigns a 12-month price target of $25.
