  • Three Energy Firms to Watch This Earnings Season

    By Sarfaraz Khan - July 12, 2013 | Tickers: APC, NFX, OAS

    Oil and gas Exploration and Production (E&P) companies Newfield Exploration (NYSE: NFX) and Hess Corporation are among those American energy firms which, amid pressure from shareholders, have been divesting from less lucrative international oil and gas ventures and investing in more profitable areas closer to their home market. I have already discussed about Hess Corporation’s strategic change and its implications in my previous article.

  • Is This Company’s Competitive Advantage Factored Into the Share Price?

    By Mark Lin - June 20, 2013 | Tickers: DNR, NFX, WLL

    It is every entrepreneur's dream to convert things that people do not want anymore into hot selling products. I am not talking about a company in the recycling industry, but an oil and natural gas producer. Denbury Resources (NYSE: DNR) is the largest oil and natural gas producer in both Mississippi and Montana. It is focused on carbon dioxide-enhanced tertiary oil recovery, which produces oil from conventional fields that more »

  • $2 Billion Hedge Fund’s Small-Cap Picks

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - May 1, 2013 | Tickers: IGT, NFX, PENN, SM, WLT

    The most popular small cap stocks among hedge funds (which we define as those stocks with market capitalizations between $1 billion and $5 billion) generate an average excess return of 18 percentage points per year (see the details here). We think that this is because small cap stocks receive less attention from large institutional investors such as mutual funds, and so are more likely to be either undervalued or overvalued more »

  • Billionaire Bruce Kovner’s Small-Cap Picks

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - April 16, 2013 | Tickers: NCR, NFX, SKS, SNV, JOE

    Small cap stocks tend to be less widely followed by institutional investors, which in theory results in their being more likely to be mispriced. When a hedge fund does research on such a company, then, it should be more likely to identify an overvalued (or undervalued) stock. As it turns out, we have found that the most popular small cap stocks among hedge funds generate an average excess return of more »

  • Newfield Exploration: How Much Can it Get for its International Assets?

    By Nathan Kirykos - March 24, 2013 | Tickers: EPL, NFX, PXP, SD

    According to recent news, Newfield Exploration (NYSE: NFX) is weighing a sale of its international offshore assets in Malaysia and China. The company is now seeking certainty and growth from its onshore projects in North America, in such formations as the Uinta, Cana Woodford, Williston, and Eagle Ford. In September 2012, Newfield also divested its assets in the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) for $228 million.

    W&T Offshore (NYSE: WTI) is an energy producer with operations primarily in the Gulf of Mexico -- GOM for short. With the stock currently trading around $15.50, is now the time to get greedy? To answer this, let's check out the company's strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.

  • Drilling Down to Show Wall Street Disconnect

    By Joel Eggerding - March 5, 2013 | Tickers: APA, COG, NFX

    Natural Gas is the path to bankruptcy and drilling for oil is the way to riches! That's Wall Street's current thought. Plus, don't even get them started about international offshore drillers. This must mean that all natural gas and offshore drillers are down and all stocks with exposure to domestic on-shore oil drilling must be going up.

    I am looking to add more oil companies as my more »

  • Stone Energy: This Stone Can Ignore Gravity

    By Nathan Kirykos - February 12, 2013 | Tickers: EPL, EXXI, NFX, SGY

    Is Stone Energy (NYSE: SGY) a sleeping stock that could fly higher, the way its neighboring McMoRan Exploration flew when it was acquired by Freeport-McMoRan few weeks ago? Although I can't know if Stone is an acquisition target, I know that it is very undervalued currently, and now is the time to get greedy.

    By Marshall Hargrave - February 8, 2013 | Tickers: FST, NFX, PXD, KWK

    Forest Oil (NYSE: FST) is down almost 50% over the last twelve months, but that has not been a deterrent for billionaire Steve Cohen of SAC Capital. A recent SEC filing shows that Cohen upped his stake in Forest Oil by 150%; he owned 4.6 million shares at the end of the third quarter and now owns 11.5 million shares, or 9.8% of Forest Oil's outstanding more »

    By Jordo Bivona - November 26, 2012 | Tickers: XOM, NFX, NBL, UNT

    Like other drilling companies with substantial operations in the Gulf of Mexico, Noble Energy (NYSE: NBL) was hit hard by the BP oil spill in 2010.  After nearly a year of downtime in the Gulf, the company received the first permit in 2011 to restart a deepwater well off the coast of Louisiana.  But Noble Energy is not confined to deep water operations.  The company, along with Anadarko Petroleum and more »

  • Profit From Intercontinental LNG Exports

    By Piyush Arora - October 16, 2012 | Tickers: APC, APA, COP, NFX

    Most investors shun away from companies having exposure to natural gas. Natural gas production saw a boom, thanks to technological advancements. However, this boom remained largely in Northern America and unfortunately European and Asian countries couldn’t enjoy the production bonanza, which has created a price difference in the three regions. In the US, natural gas is priced at $3.20 per 1000 cubic ft., whereas in the European and more »

  • Oil and Gas Companies Continue to Cut Development Costs

    By Eric Fox - August 13, 2012 | Tickers: APC, KOG, LINE, NFX, WLL

    The exploration and production industry moved to drive down development costs in the second quarter of 2012 through increased drilling efficiencies as the rejuvenation of the United States oil and gas resource base continues.

  • Newfield Exploration Gets Busy With Oil and Liquids

    By Eric Fox - August 1, 2012 | Tickers: APA, NFX, PXD, ROSE, UPL

    Newfield Exploration Co. (NYSE: NFX) made progress during the second quarter of 2012 on the company’s plan to shift away from natural gas development and increase the percentage of crude oil and natural gas liquids in its production and reserve base. This transition is being led by the development of various onshore plays in the United States as well as opportunities internationally.

  • Playing the E&P Bottom

    By cris vicari - June 8, 2012 | Tickers: NFX, OXY

    Newfield Exploration (NYSE: NFX) is an exploration and production company based in Texas, with a portfolio of holdings that focus on gas. Over the past year, management has naturally altered this portfolio to meet the global increase in liquids commodity prices. As gas prices rise and oil prices (for the 6-month short term) slump, it is unclear what the “real” story is on exploration and production companies (E&Ps) like more »

  • Most Shorted Stocks #8 – ATP Oil & Gas

    By Chad Henage - March 5, 2012 | Tickers: ATPAQ.PK, FST, NFX

    I have to say based on ATP, Forest Oil, and Newfield, it seems the best way to play the industry is to stick with the larger players. Without an increase in production and cash flow, I think ATP may be a better play as a buyout candidate than a long term investment. If they disappear, you might find Newfield or Forest Oil taking their place as one of the most shorted stocks in the market. Let me know what you think in the comments section below.
