Flotek Industries, Inc. (FTK) - NYSE
  • Tue, Jul. 12, 11:30 AM
    • Six oil services stocks - Flotek Industries (NYSE:FTK), Schlumberger (SLB +4.4%), Halliburton (HAL +4%), Oceaneering (OII +6%), Superior Energy Services (SPN +5.5%) and Rowan (RDC +8.1%) - should do well regardless of the price of oil, Stephens analyst Matthew Marietta says.
    • The past 18 months have proven that trying to predict specific commodity prices is a guessing game, Marietta says, but he thinks that a global ratio of reserves to annual production levels at an all-time high, coupled with global equipment overcapacity and cost deflation "has the potential to create a price environment range-bound in line with our sensitivities."
    • Stephens also upgrades RDC and Nabors Industries (NBR +9.8%) to Overweight from Equal Weight.

    • Flotek Industries (FTK +5.6%) releases an independent report it says shows that its proprietary blend of completion fluids helped increase production in wells in Colorado, refuting earlier criticism that it manipulated data to make its products appear more effective than they were.
    • The report says wells in Colorado's DJ Basin that received FTK’s CnF nano-fluid technology performed better than wells that did not receive the product, which is derived from citrus fruit and designed to help pry loose more oil and gas trapped underground.
    • Overall, the report concluded that two focus areas showed a significant increase in historical production and ultimate oil output, but the results for a third, more gas-rich focus area were not as conclusive.

    • Flotek Industries plunges more than 20% (FTK -22.6%) after saying the SEC had opened an inquiry into the reporting and accuracy of its FracMax software as well as the efficacy of its CnF completion chemistries.
    • FTK says it has been named as a defendant in several shareholder class action lawsuit as a result of issues raised in an independent report regarding the accuracy of FracMax and the efficacy of CnF.
    • In a Q4 update, FTK says CnF Q4 revenue would be flat Q/Q on a ~5% increase in volumes, but the non-CnF chemistry business will be "meaningfully weaker" and the drilling technologies segment will decline 5% Q/Q.

    • Flotek Industries (FTK -32.9%) plunges another 33% to fall below the $10 mark following yesterday's 20% drop in response to a negative report from Bronte Capital; today, the company's rebuttal appears to suggest the company misinterpreted production data in three wells analyzed in the report.
    • In FTK's response to the Bronte Capital report, the company says "the wells in question are single-well units... while the adjustment does impact the magnitude of the outperformance of the well completed using [complex nano-fluid surfactants] when compared to the non-CnF treated wells, it does not, the company believes, change the conclusion that the CnF well outperformed the non-CnF wells."
    • Also, Iberia Capital has come out with its own scathing report that rates shares as Underperform and worth less than $3 each, citing a "persisting lack of evidence to support management's claims."
