Noble Energy (NBL +0.3%) forecasts Q3 sales volume at the low end of its earlier guidance of 242K-250K boe/day, as efforts to restore production after Hurricane Isaac were delayed by flooding at third-party onshore facilities and minor equipment repairs. NBL says the storm hurt production by ~7K boe/day.

    Manufacturing Index increase is good for commodities. China stimulus coming soon. A good play on both oil and stimulus in Shanxi province with high YoY growth in industry is LPH:

     

    LPH completed a $110M acquisition of their 3rd facility on September 26, 2012, which adds 80% to their existing capacity, without ANY shareholder dilution. Track record of 2009 to 2012 is expansion 1 to 3 facilities, capacity from 50K metric tons to 220K metric tons, 4.4-fold increase.

     

    LPH auditors published a comprehensive reconciliation of China SAIC tax filings to SEC filings in July 2012 covering the period 2009-2012, and demonstrated earnings were accurate as reported.

     

    LPH reported an 11% YoY increase in metric tons of oil sold in the months of July and August 2012 vs. 2011. Increase in oil prices in mid-summer will further increase profits to be reported for Q ending 9/30/12 (earnings due 11/15/12). Huajie facility is brandnew, turnkey, dedicated rail spur, and sales staff were on the ground months before closing, so will add to 12/31 earnings.

     

    EPS will grow from $0.61 to $1.10 for year ending 12/31/2013.
