Top 10 Energy Stocks To Watch Right Now

Renting in Manhattan is notoriously expensive. But lately it’s becoming just a little bit more affordable … a little.

Prices have been on a general decline this year as more apartments become available, and landlords continue to make concessions.

Rental prices declined for the first four months of the year, according to market reports by real estate appraisal firm Miller Samuel for Douglas Elliman Real Estate.

In March, rental prices dropped 3% from a year earlier to $3,400.

Luxury apartments have seen the biggest price drops.

Rentals with three bedrooms or more have seen a nearly 6% annual drop in May, while rents on two-bedroom units are down 4.6%, the latest report found.

Last month, overall prices crept up 0.6%, partly because the summer ushers in a flood of new renters and there was a jump in bigger apartments hitting the market.

  • [By Matthew DiLallo]

    Driving that view is the success its peers have had in the state. Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN), for example, grew its STACK production 11% during the fourth quarter. While Devon is prioritizing free cash flow generation from the region over volume growth this year, that will allow it to retain the optionality to reaccelerate in the future. EOG, likewise, sees upside in Oklahoma’s shale plays as it believes it’s sitting on more than 200 million BOE of net resource potential in the region that it can develop in the coming years. When market conditions improve, investors will likely see oil companies restart their Oklahoma growth engines.
