(A Top Pick Oct 22/18, Down 88%) He sold at $3.22, taking a big loss. They have a lot of worries. They are looking to sell the company. They might just liquidate the company, but clean up could be very expensive. He does not like stock consolidations and used that as a trigger to get out. He would not buy this now. He made a mistake -- when debt came down, so too did revenues.

They have put themselves up for sale. They are a Cardium player with quite a bit of debt. They have a lot of non-producing wells. People are worried about how much value there really is in the company after debts are paid off.

New interim president and CEO. Pretty good numbers on cardium wells. Issue is the debt. Debt is 22% of equity, but it's going the wrong way. Declining production and volumes. Not as attractive as the others. Need to show they can grow core numbers of the cardium. Guidance is negative. Capex is about equal to cash flow.

A takeover candidate? He was wrong with this. He recently moved it from a buy to a hold. It's high-risk and high-reward, has "danger" written across it. He likes the idea of a takeover, but doesn't know if it'll happen. This could be a good play in oil/gas with a lot of potential. He hasn't sold it, but at the same bankruptcy remains a real possibility.

The company has 19% debt and not a bad balance sheet, in his opinion. Book value is $3.90. It is not on his coverage list because they dropped production in their third quarter. They are spending money and not producing the assets they had before. However, this one is cheap.

They had over $3 Billion in debt but it is down to $408 Million due to them selling off a lot of assets. They had to hedge to survive and they all come off in the new year. The company loses money quarter after quarter, but that could change. There is huge insider buying. A major property of theirs came in on time and under budget.

It could be sold before the end of the year. Results today were not very good. They are looking to sell some of their properties. They have these hedges in place at $50 and the oil price is much higher now. They still have a fair amount of debt. He is happy to hold it. We will see more pieces coming off. It is still high risk due to the debt. This one might get taken over so he holds it.

Got propelled from investor activism. Middle of the pack for him. He sees moderate leverage. He has been hung up on the nature of their assets, they are longer in the tooth. Higher cost operations. Sees 46% upside at $80 oil and a 27% upside at $70 oil.

He is not attracted that much to it because of disgruntled shareholders. The company has shrunk itself since last year. Their focus is to spend less than cash flow. They have other assets they might sell. The balance sheet is in good shape. But he thinks there are more attractive names out there even though this stock seems cheap. This stock needs something to wake it up.

(A Top Pick June 8, 2017. Down 13%). Activist investors have gained seats on the board and are having a significant influence on management decisions. He thinks it is likely that the company will sell itself by the Fall, at a significant premium, therefore it looks like a promising short-term play. If that doesn’t happen, he is happy to still hold the stock because he thinks the company is now heading in the right direction.
