Is this week's big spike in natural gas a sign of a price floor? Is it time to buy? Fund manager Dan Rice likes Range Resources (RRC), whose exposure to rich Appalachian fields that produce gas at low cost should help it survive any further period of depressed prices. Weeden's 45-year vet Charles Maxwell favors Encana (ECA). Morgan Stanley likes: OKE, SUN, TRGP, WMB, SE, XTXI.

    At least Charlie didn't mention CHK as he has been on the board allowing Aubrey to do as he pleases beyond the reach of corporate governance.

    I'm playing it with LNG. Nice div and less overhead.

    IMHO this upturn is a commodity sympathy trade linked to the upward reversal in copper and the downward reversal in the dollar earlier this week. Look at the charts. If the dollar bounces off support next week, the trade in copper and nat gas could turn lower.

     

    NG price target: $1.50.

    The price of nat gas is advancing on mostly short covering not new buying so this bounce is just that a bounce which won't last for long.

    With such gigantic production capacities, any slight rise in price above operating cost will cause E&P companies to flood the market with new sell orders.

    One of the many reasons nat gas prices won't stay low for much longer.

    Gas prices won't stay low but sort term increases are due to cuts in production. How does this help producer bottom line?
