  • Don’t Overlook These Oil & Gas Companies

    By Shweta Dubey - August 5, 2013 | Tickers: CHK, MUR, TLM

    Selling assets is just part of the game for oil and gas companies. It helps them focus on their core business and raise funds for the development of other assets to achieve sustainable growth. Moreover, they can use cash received from the asset sales to reduce debt, which increases investor confidence. Let’s take a look at three oil and gas companies selling assets to attain long-term sustainable growth and more »

  • Income and Value Seekers Can't Miss This Opportunity

    By Nathan Kirykos - April 23, 2013 | Tickers: EC, PRE, PMG, TLM

    As Warren Buffett has said, "The markets have a tendency to overshoot at both ends." This is the case for Petrominerales (TSX: PMG), which has a stock price that has tumbled lately, falling 40% since early 2013. Dry holes are part of the game for any explorer, and Petrominerales has hit enough of them in the last months. The company has been unable to establish a meaningful production improvement, and more »

  • Petrominerales Is A Must Both For The Income And The Value Seekers

    By Nathan Kirykos - April 18, 2013 | Tickers: EC, PRE, PMG, TLM

    Warren Buffett has said: "The markets have a tendency to overshoot at both ends". This is the case for Petrominerales (TSX: PMG) whose stock price has tumbled lately. The dry holes are part of the game for any explorer, and Petrominerales has hit enough of them during the last months. Eventually, the company has been unable to establish a meaningful production improvement, and the stock has been murdered.

  • BP Makes Fresh Investments in the North Sea

    By Satarupa Bose - April 2, 2013 | Tickers: BP, STO, TLM

    The biggest problem that oil and natural gas companies face is depleting reserves. With daily production, the overall proven reserves decrease and this leads to a situation where these companies have to find and develop new reserves to sustain production.

    And this task is quite challenging. Improvement in technology has made it possible to extract oil and natural gas from reserves which were previously out of reach, or economically unfeasible more »

  • Time To Consider These 3 Energy Companies

    By Chris Lau - March 12, 2013 | Tickers: BP, TLM, RIG

    Investors seeking value could start at looking at beaten out-of-favor companies in the energy sector. Companies making the headlines offer a glimpse on their future prospects.

    BP (NYSE: BP) for instance, had its reputation tarnished after the spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Even with all litigation costs accounted for, investors are assigning a low valuation to its shares. BP trades with a forward P/E of 8 and are more »

  • Talisman Energy, a Charm for 2013?

    By Christopher Lacich - December 15, 2012 | Tickers: BP, CEO, NXY, TLM

    Talisman Energy (NYSE: TLM), formerly known as BP Canada, Ltd. has had a long, if not obscure history. It went public in 1992 when British Petroleum (NYSE: BP) sold 57% of its interest in the company to the public. Going back further, its origins can be traced to the Supertest Petroleum Company founded in Canada in 1923.

    Based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Talisman Energy is now one of Canada's more »

  • Europe Hot for Algerian Shale Gas

    By James Stafford - December 3, 2012 | Tickers: ENI, XOM, RDS-A, TLM

    The Sahara Desert is being billed as a potential cure for the European Union’s gas problems, and all eyes are on Algeria’s 321 trillion cubic feet of recoverable shale gas.

    In money terms, this is about $2.6 trillion in gas at the current UK prices.

    Algeria, for its part, is keen to promote this image and taking serious steps to boost investor confidence. To that end it more »

  • This Independent Driller is Dirt Cheap

    By Peter Horn - November 16, 2012 | Tickers: CHK, DVN, EOG, TLM

    Shares of Devon Energy (NYSE: DVN) are exceptionally cheap. Low natural gas prices and plunging natural gas liquid (NGL) prices have shares in the dumpster. That provides an interesting opportunity for those willing to hold their nose and buy other peoples’ garbage. Say the name “Devon Energy” and the first thought that likely comes to mind is shale gas. As a result of their pioneering role in the Barnett Shale more »

  • Follow the Money Before You Lose Yours (Part I)

    By Matthew DiLallo - October 29, 2012 | Tickers: BP, CHK, XCO, PXP, TLM

    It’s scary to realize that what’s here today could truly be gone tomorrow.  Accidents and disasters happen for no rhyme or reason, leaving behind lives that need mending.  While you can’t completely prevent their affects, you can at least for the most part protect yourself by taking certain steps beforehand. 

    The same is true for those non-accidents out there.  Unfortunately there are those that would do you more »

  • 3 Oil & Gas Stocks with Different Risk/Reward

    By David Gould - October 3, 2012 | Tickers: ECA, SU, TLM

    While the oil & gas sector is, in general, trading at historically low multiples, there are a few instances where so much optimism surrounds a company that its stock price just can’t help but rise. But this optimism is for growth or a sharper turnaround, there is still a lot of underlying risk. In my view, the appropriate oil & gas portfolio complements risk with a degree of certainty through diversification more »

  • International Shale Plays Move Slowly Forward

    By Eric Fox - September 5, 2012 | Tickers: APA, CVX, XOM, TLM, TOT, YPF

    The exploration and development of international shale oil and natural gas plays are starting to gain momentum as many countries look with envy at the boom under way in the United States and hope to reduce dependence on energy imports.  These resources will be exploited using similar techniques employed by operators active in domestic plays.

  • What We Learned about the Marcellus Shale During Earnings Season

    By Eric Fox - September 1, 2012 | Tickers: ARP, CRZO, CHK, EOG, NBL, TLM

    The Marcellus Shale saw lower activity during the second quarter of 2012 as operators shifted capital out of many dry gas areas of the play.  This downtrend in drilling activity may continue for the rest of 2012 unless natural gas prices move higher.


    The Marcellus Shale is present in parts of the Appalachian Basin, with most development concentrated in Pennsylvania and West Virginia.  The oil and gas industry flocked more »

    You can’t help being excited to see what’s going on in our domestic energy industry.  For the first time in decades it’s beginning to look like we’re on our way to lessening our dependence on foreign oil, if not laying the foundation for a future energy independence day.  While that day still is a long way off, new projects like the one Phillips 66 (NYSE: PSXmore »)

  • 3 Oil & Gas Stocks To Consider Buying

    By David Gould - August 27, 2012 | Tickers: ECA, NXY, SU, TLM

    While the oil & gas sector is known for low multiples, there are occasions when growth is so uncertain that it tends to distort multiples. Both Talisman (NYSE: TLM) and EnCana (NYSE: ECA) trade at high multiples and are more speculative investments than Suncor (NYSE: SU), which is forecasted for consistent and meaningful progress. Below, I review the fundamentals of each company.

  • Mixed Signals Coming Out of the Marcellus

    By Matthew DiLallo - August 19, 2012 | Tickers: BHI, CHK, EQT, RRC, TLM

    It was supposed to be a game changer for the state of Pennsylvania.  The Steel City was to be catapulted as the energy capital of the east if not of the world.  By the year 2020 nearly a quarter of the natural gas used in the nation was to be produced here.  Yet, the drilling boom from the Marcellus Shale that hit the state is beginning to look fragile.  The more »

    By Eric Fox - August 3, 2012 | Tickers: CNQ, ECA, XOM, NXY, SHI, SU, TLM

    The recent purchase of Nexen (NYSE: NXY) by CNOOC Ltd. seems to have put the entire Canadian oil and gas sector into play, and this deal is as good a time as any to review other potential acquisition candidates that might attract a buyer.  This interest may be based on the target's own assets or as a backdoor strategy to get a base of operations in the United States more »

  • Intrinsic Value and the Market

    By Christopher Lacich - July 30, 2012 | Tickers: CEO, NXY, TLM

    The recent takeover offer for Nexen (NYSE: NXY) for $27.50 cash (U.S.) by CNOOC (NYSE: CEO) at a 61% premium illustrates the disconnect between the intrinsic fair market value of a company, and its "Mr. Market" price.

    Often, it can be years before the disconnect is corrected, if ever.

    On July 20, 2012, Nexen traded for around $17 per share. At the close of the market on this more »
