Halliburton Company (HAL) Posts Upbeat Earnings as Oilfield Services Rebound
By: Schaeffer's Investment Research | July 20, 2021

• Halliburton reported better-than-expected second-quarter earnings

• HAL is looking to snap a five-day losing streak

The shares of Halliburton Company (NYSE:HAL) are up 0.5% at $19.46 at last check, after the oil name posted an better-than-expected second-quarter earnings report, as oilfield services and crude prices rebounded from pandemic-induced lows. Plus, the energy sector is rising today alongside oil futures, after the front-month contract yesterday suffered its biggest one-day loss since September.

On the charts, HAL is looking to snap a five-day losing streak. The equity has moved lower since reaching a June 3, annual high of $25, yesterday dipping below the 200-day moving average for the first time since November. Year-over-year, Halliburton stock is up 44.9%.

Today's bounce may have already been in the cards. This is per HAL's Relative Strength Index (RSI) of 29, which sits in "overbought" territory, meaning the stock is undervalued.

Meanwhile, analysts are mostly bullish towards the equity. Of the 14 in coverage, 10 carry a "strong buy" rating on Halliburton stock, while the remaining four say "hold." Echoing this, the security's 12-month consensus target price of $24.56 is a 25.6% premium to current levels.

The options pits are of similar sentiment. At the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Cboe Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX), HAL sports a 50-day call/put volume ratio of 3.41, which sits higher than 78% of readings from the past year. This indicates long calls being are being picked up at a faster-than-usual rate.

So far today, 5,937 calls have crossed the tape, which is double what is typically seen at this points. Most popular is the August 20 call, followed by the 7/23 19.50-strike call, with new positions being opened at the former, while the latter is set to expire at the end of the week.
