  • Did Weather Create a Golden Buying Opportunity in Nuverra Environmental Solutions?

    By Mark Holder - August 3, 2013 | Tickers: CJES, NES, RAM

    Another quarter, and yet another disappointment from Nuverra Environmental Solutions (NYSE: NES). The company that promised an attractive environmental solution to the dirty energy sector has yet to deliver on that promise to investors. Most recently, the old Heckmann released preliminary Q2 2013 results that greatly disappointed the market. A major contributing factor was weather, but is that enough to create a golden buying opportunity after the stock plunged?

  • How to Ride the Fracking Boom

    By Steve Peasley - May 9, 2013 | Tickers: CJES, FRAK, NES

    Fracking is only going to grow, despite all the political opposition, and that means there’s opportunity in this burgeoning energy source. Two fracking service providers and an exchange-traded fund are especially good ways to invest in the practice.

    Short for hydraulic fracturing, fracking is the extraction of natural gas and oil from hard-to-exploit shale rock formations deep in the earth. Energy companies pump high-pressure fluid into the rock, releasing more »

  • This Could Destroy Your Wealth or Make You Rich

    By Ken McGaha - May 5, 2013 | Tickers: CJES, LNG, D

    While the media is filled with loud reporting of the newly available abundant supplies of natural gas within the borders of the United States, very little coverage is given to the efforts to restrict access to supply through restrictive regulations on hydraulic fracturing (fracking), or the political efforts just getting underway to restrict the export of natural gas into the world market where prices are as much as 3 to more »

  • As Natural Gas Inventories Plunge, Investors Should Buy Oil Service Stocks

    By Mark Holder - April 23, 2013 | Tickers: CJES, NES, SLCA

    Based on the limited positive reaction of natural gas and coal stocks, the market continues to ignore the very bullish natural gas weekly inventory reports. In fact, the reports are now mostly glazed over in the financial media.

    For those that missed the report last week, the weekly inventories for the first full week of April dropped 14 Bcf. While less than the 21 Bcf expected drop, the small decline more »

  • Collecting Profits From Cheap Natural Gas

    By Ken McGaha - April 17, 2013 | Tickers: CJES, CMI, XOM, WPRT

    There is no question that the process known as hydraulic fracturing (fracing) has created access to oceans of natural gas within U. S. shale formations that were previously uneconomical. The only remaining question for investors is how to best position ourselves to profit from the changes this cheap energy source will cause in our economy and our lifestyles. Here are four companies that will drive some of those inevitable changes more »

  • Earn Extraordinary Profits in the New Middle-East

    By Ken McGaha - March 14, 2013 | Tickers: BHI, CJES, HAL, SLB

    The United States is on the verge of becoming the new Middle-East of fossil fuel energy through the widespread implementation of horizontal drilling techniques and a process called “fracking,” and there are fortunes to be made. This process, in simple terms, injects water under high pressure into wells drilled horizontally into shale formations to fracture the rock and allow the natural gas or oil to flow through the cracks created more »

  • Ecolab's Case For Financial Re-engineering

    By Bob Chandler - January 7, 2013 | Tickers: BHI, CJES, ECL, RES

    Ecolab (NYSE: ECL) is a chemical company that historically specialized in cleaning and sanitizing products and services. The company is probably not very well known but could offer an interesting investment opportunity because of a current business transformation via financial re-engineering.

    Ecolab, based on mainly its cleaning & sanitizing business, had core 2011 annual revenues of around $6.6 billion. In December 2011 it started its transformation with the highly levered more »

  • High Reward Oilfield Service Stocks To Potentially Buy

    By David Gould - December 28, 2012 | Tickers: CJES, TESO, WFT

    Though natural gas prices have been on the decline, unconventional shale gas is expected to see soaring demand. Investors have been largely focused on the short-term negative catalysts, such as a weak pressure pumping environment, overcapacity in oil basins, and decreased land drilling. This great deal of industry risk makes it reasonable to look at producers with the highest upside for investment opportunities. Below, I consider 1 takeover target and more »

  • The Case for Buying Stock in Oilfield Services

    By David Gould - December 6, 2012 | Tickers: CJES, KEG, NOV

    If you are bullish on natural gas, it makes sense to buy the industry suppliers… especially at today's multiples. Oilfield service companies are trading at a historical low for such promising growth ahead. While the US pressure pumping business is, fittingly, under pressure and margins are narrow from excess capacity in oil basins, this headwind has been overblown. Below, I review three stocks and my outlook on their futures more »

  • C & J Energy Services Powering Through Difficult Times With Quality

    By Cory Renauer - November 5, 2012 | Tickers: CJES, HAL, SLB

    C&J Energy Services (NYSE: CJES) is making a name for itself in the Eagle Ford, Permian and now the Bakken Shale areas as a fracking service provider with top quality service. Active rig counts are so low that industry leaders Schlumberger (NYSE: SLB) and Halliburton (NYSE: HAL) are watching profit margins erode as they scramble to undercut each other. C&J Energy Services is sticking to its strategy of more »

    By Eric Fox - September 14, 2012 | Tickers: BAS, CJES, CXO, HAL, NBL

    Basic Energy Services (NYSE: BAS) confirmed earlier commentary on weak business trends affecting some of its service areas and will continue to be acquisitive as it looks to grow its business through what the company believes is a temporary pause in the current drilling cycle.  These and other comments were made by management at the Barclays CEO Energy conference last week in New York.

  • Oil Service Operators Speak on the North American Onshore

    By Eric Fox - August 15, 2012 | Tickers: BAS, CJES, HP, KEG, PTEN

    The North American drilling cycle is an important determinant to earnings in the energy sector and the level and trend of this cycle should be monitored by investors that are active in this sector.  One method of keeping current is through a review of earnings releases and conference calls as oil service operators typically make extensive commentary on business trends in their respective service areas.

  • Is This the Future of Fracking?

    By Soroush Pour - August 10, 2012 | Tickers: CJES, HAL, NOV, SLB, TS

    Last week, we briefly touched on the debate over natural gas hydraulic fracturing, more commonly known as fracking.  Responsible for generating over $80 billion in revenues annually, the fracking industry is seen as a godsend by hydrocarbon enthusiasts, and a menace by environmentalists.  This energy removal process is performed by shooting a chemical-laden fluid into underground, gas-bearing rock formations.  As its name suggests, the rock layer is fractured, allowing for more »

  • Unconventional Drilling Energizes Investment Opportunities

    By Damon Judd - May 4, 2012 | Tickers: CJES, NR, RES

    Oil field services companies have been taking it on the chin for the past several years as demand for oil and gas has dropped and their margins have been getting squeezed. While the drilling methods have recently evolved to allow for more cost-effective extraction using horizontal drilling and fracking, the economics have not been favorable.  Until now. I believe that several oil field services companies are poised to take advantage more »

  • STOCK Act, Now We're Cooking with Gas

    By Kyle Metivier - April 5, 2012 | Tickers: CJES, HAL

    April 4th now offers an occasion to celebrate, rather than reflect with sorrow, as the day when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated. President Obama signed into law, the STOCK Act, which now makes members of Congress a little more human-like, as they must comply, along with the rest of humankind, with the federal ban on insider trading. So now those elected officials get to enjoy an upgrade more »

  • Why I'm Avoiding Facebook's IPO

    If you get your investing ideas from Sean Parker, you might as well trade with the E*TRADE baby while he intently watches footage of wildebeest migrations.

    So while the “savvy” president of Facebook, whose creative genius gave us Napster and the removal of the word “The” from “The Facebook”, proclaims that Facebook's IPO could be “the largest public offering in history”, I want everyone to remain calm and more »
