They just released that they will be bringing on two new discoveries -- the first sometime in the second-half of the year. They are in Trinidad and hoping to add natural gas. This will double their production. Currently they are only a crude oil producer. The natural gas market there is paying up to $2.90 US -- a very good price. He has a $0.80 target. He would buy on any pullback. He owns this one.

He owns this one. It is up 16% today on a lack of sellers. They cut the dividend to a yield that is still 7-8%. Volumes will likely drop off in Q2, but are expected to spend more in Q4, depending on how the market reacts. The balance sheet is in good shape with $1.2 billion in debt. His rating is "A".

Bought at $4, $2 and $1. They released last week and production in Q1 was solid. He likes the balance sheet. They cut the dividend by about 80%, as he thinks the banks may have asked them to do so. They are mainly into natural gas (78% of production) and he is bullish on natural gas pricing in the latter half of the year.

Debt concerns? BXE took bankruptcy protection when debt became too much. There is no equity value in it any longer. Companies that have debt that matures in 2020 or 2021 will have issues. He sees no issues with BIR or TVE on this topic. The new Federal relief program for large companies may be difficult for companies to accept as it has provisions for up to 15% of ownership being made available in warrants to the government.
