WPX Energy Posts Loss In Q4 - Quick Facts

WPX Energy (WPX: Quote) posted fourth-quarter loss of $338 million or $1.72 per share versus a profit of $12 million or $0.06 per share last year.

WPX results were impacted by non-cash impairment charges during the fourth quarter primarily due to a decline in forward natural gas prices.

On average, three analysts polled by Thomson Reuters expected the company to report earnings of $0.19 per share. Analysts' estimates typically exclude special items.

Total revenues grew to $992 million from $960 million in the prior-year quarter.
