expert analysis & newsletter briefs

Royal Dutch Shell Plc

"One of the companies we added to the portfolio is Royal Dutch Shell Plc. When we purchased the stock, it was yielding over a 6% dividend, and the acquisition of BG Group Plc was a nice bonus. We're very encouraged by that acquisition. We feel it strategically places the company very well. BG Group puts Shell in regions of the world that look interesting from a growth standpoint, namely in Brazil and Australia. We feel like that's going to be a good platform for Shell, and for a company of its size, to get more growth." (5/26/15) - The Energy Report Interview with Brian Hicks

Pan Orient Energy Corp.

"With the proceeds from the sale of Pan Orient Energy Corp.'s 50% interest in Thailand, we estimate net positive working capital has increased to ~$91.7M ($1.64/share); at the current stock price, the company trades below its cash value. We maintain our Buy rating and $4 target on strong financial position and high-impact exploration drilling in Indonesia commencing in H2/15." (5/25/15) - Bill Newman, Mackie Research Capital

Mart Resources Inc.

"Mart Resources Inc.'s Umusadege field oil production averaged approximately 8,900 bbl/d during April 2015. . .the sidetracking and deepening of the UMU-8 well encountered 562 feet of gross hydrocarbon pay, of which 139 feet are in zones not previously included in Mart's reserves evaluation." (5/22/15) - FirstEnergy Global Research

Blackbird Energy Inc.

"Blackbird Energy Inc. announced that it will be drilling one horizontal well at the Elmworth (100% working interest), which will be targeting the condensate-rich Middle Montney. . .this will be the company's third Montney well and will help further delineate the acreage." (5/20/15) - David Ricciardi, Mackie Research Capital
