Tulsa money manager Jake Dollarhide said the oil company has benefited from relatively strong oil prices while low natural gas prices have forced many production companies to switch their drilling programs to oil from natural gas in recent years.

“Being heavy on oil is not an accident. It was a clear-cut strategic operating decision for Continental to be heavier in oil than most of its peers,” said Dollarhide, CEO of Longbow Asset Management Co.

“At a time when many of its peers who are heavier in natural gas are cutting their production outlooks and scrambling because of low natural gas prices and debt payments, Continental is able to come out with a strong report.”
