expert analysis & newsletter briefs

Manitok Energy Inc.

"Manitok Energy Inc. has decided to suspend drilling at its Entice and Stolberg properties and apply 80% of its cash flow to debt reduction in H1/15. This is a prudent move. This is survival of the fittest, and maintaining a flexible balance sheet so that you can come out on the other side when commodity prices improve is crucial.

This company has had some good wells out of Entice. . .we think Manitok has a lot of potential in some of the formations on that property. . ." (2/26/15) - The Energy Report Interview with Brian Bagnell

Rock Energy Inc.

"Rock Energy Inc. announced closing of its $13.2M bought-deal financing. . .during a period when commodity prices were falling precipitously and no bottom was in sight, we believe Rock was prudent in executing the financing to ensure it could complete its Q1/15 capital budget at a range of commodity prices without fully utilizing its credit facility. Activating the royalty holiday ensures Rock will generate the free cash flow necessary to improve its balance sheet. . .during periods of weak commodity prices, while positioning itself with dry powder to inject capital back into its Viking growth program (or make a small tuck-in acquisition on one of its exploratory ideas) when prices improve. We maintain our Outperform rating." (2/25/15) - Thomas Matthews, Alta Corp Capital

Rock Energy Inc.

"We continue to favor Rock Energy Inc. given its low declines, materially improving cost structure driven by reduced royalties beginning in Q2/15, clean balance sheet and significant torque to oil prices." (2/25/15) - Chad Ellison, Dundee Capital Markets
