Continental Resources scale and core positioning in its two primary plays, the Bakken and SCOOP-STACK-Cana, drives a low pre-dividend corporate level cash break-even. The competive break-even coupled with a focus on free cash flow results in low reinvestment rates and the potential for substantial discretionary cash flow. The resulting surge in cash flow creates options for further corporate actions beyond targeted debt reduction, announcement share repurchases, and base dividend requirements. M&A or an increase in organic investment appear possible. Despite an attractive cash flow profile, Continental does trail peers in terms of quantified emission reduction targets. Perception as a laggard due to unambitious targets threatens an otherwise compelling outlook.
