expert analysis & newsletter briefs

Input Capital Corp.

"We continue to maintain a positive long-term outlook for Input Capital Corp. . .the company's balance sheet continues to remain very healthy due to the strong cash position. At the end of Q2/15, the company had $64.1M cash. The company maintains no debt and very limited liabilities." (12/16/14) - Daniel Iwata, Fundamental Research Corp.

Madalena Energy Inc.

"Madalena Energy Inc. expects to fund its 2015 capital program from cash flow and existing working capital. Madalena maintains a strong financial position, with positive working capital of ~$18M and no debt at September 30, 2014. The company highlighted high realized crude prices in Argentina despite the selloff in global crude oil prices as supporting strong cash flows through 2015." (12/16/14) - Darrell Bishop, Haywood Securities

Madalena Energy Inc.

"Madalena Energy Inc.'s 2015 capital program of $48.2M will focus on the company's strategic unconventional resource plays in Argentina with additional capital for the company’s conventional development and optimization. . .regulated prices in Argentina provide stability. . .the company expects its 2015 program to be fully funded from cash flow and existing positive working capital." (12/15/14) - Michael Charlton, Industrial Alliance Securities

Cub Energy Inc.

"Cub Energy Inc. is drilling in Ukraine. Unfortunately, more than half of its production is in East Ukraine, a conflict area. It is still producing, but it cannot drill more wells. It is, however, getting good results from West Ukraine. Cub is a good, long-term Ukraine gas play." (12/11/14) - The Energy Report Interview with Chen Lin

Mart Resources Inc.

"Mart Resources Inc. has been my home run of the past few years. I've already received a dividend that was more than my original investment. Mart just announced the new pipeline has started flowing. Once the new pipeline is fully ramped up, we should see the production triple, which will generate huge cash flow. Mart's production cost is exceedingly low." (12/11/14) - The Energy Report Interview with Chen Lin
