Praise continues to roll in for Concho Resources' (CXO +1.6%) ambitious growth plan announced last week, as Canaccord is the latest firm to upgrade shares.

In raising its rating to Buy from Hold with a $130 price target, up from $101, the firm says it appreciates CXO's plan to advance NAV with its rich inventory of locations across the Permian and its intention to provide near-term visibility of the plan by disclosing quarterly guidance going forward.

SunTrust also raises shares to Buy from Neutral, and lifts its price target to $145 from $110, on the stronger growth outlook and deeper Midland Basin inventory following industry Upper Spraberry and Wolfcamp D tests.
