Continental Resources: Updated Guidance Results In $2.4 Billion In Projected FCF At Strip Prices

Continental now projects $2.4 billion in free cash flow in 2021 at current strip prices. It has boosted its quarterly dividend to $0.15 per share, although it should have room to increase this further going forwards. Natural gas production expectations were increased in its guidance, and realized prices are also expected to be strong. Continental has resumed its share repurchase program and expects leverage to be below 1.0x by the end of the year. Value is estimated at $41 per share in a long-term $60 WTI oil and $2.75 Henry Hub natural gas scenario.
