  • BP shares higher on Exxon's rumored takeover interest  [View news story]
    BP...Is a screaming buy. With the cash flow it throws off, and the negative impact and perception of the gulf Oil spill. You can't even go down and buy your local landscape or convient store for the ratio BP is selling at. Take a look at Seth Klarman's position in BP. I already own some.

    Hey Cliff,

    Great point at $17 a share...Not as powerful an argument at $11 after a 40% haircut. (Nobody knows, including myself). You're argument also assumes everything has changed now, with interest rates. Jeffery Gunlach took the opposite side of your view...You may want to see he's take a few weeks back on this. Thank you for the comments.

  • Telemark commences production  [View instapost]
    WTIC at $82.41....Very strong oil prices as well. Price just needs to eat up those bears around $19.50-$20 per share. Once we got thru that, the door is open for much higher prices.

    Hey Devon,

    I think the best way to value a company is to see what the market is willing to pay for similiar E & P companies. All companies are different, but one must determine a general idea of value. A simple way is to look at what the market is offering today. One way for me is just to look at Proven and probable and divid by price offered. this does not account for any cash flow, just reserves.

    -Althought ATPG is not XTO. XOM was willing to pay roughly $15.00 BOE
    -ADDAX bought out buy China's Sinopec. Roughly $10.00
    -Petrohawk is obvously a NG player, but do the converstion of the last couple of buyouts/Sales of reserves. they yield $5.83 & $2.12 of MCFE...from $35-12.75 BOE.

    Under this model, ATPG with roughly 200M BOE prices them between a $2-3 billion net worth company. $40-50 a share with my model.....Just something to chew on......

  • ATP Oil and Gas: Undervalued Stock with Major Price-Altering Catalysts Imminent  [View article]
    Love to see them sell. Last major sale was for $10 per proved & proable. Makes ATPG a 2.1 billion dollar mkt cap. Call the Chinese and sell it. Plus the Senior management are not kids anymore. Just my humble opionion.

    Hey Devon,

    China again sought to satisfy its hunger for natural resources, as state-owned Sinopec Group agreed to acquire oil-exploration company Addax Petroleum Corp. for 8.27 billion Canadian dollars (US$7.19 billion), in what would mark the largest overseas takeover by a Chinese company.

    Addax information: The best cacalulations I could figure was that Addax would recieve a little less then $10 for proven, probable and possible reserves per barrell.....rouglhy 738.1(MMbbl) X $10 gives you close to the US$7.2 billion paid. Also both companies with similiar dept issues. This would value ATPG 200-220 (MMbbl) X $10=US$2-2.2 billion ($40-$45 a share). Obviously there are some very real differences between Addax & ATPG. But It tells you where the market is at.....

    Hey Devon,

    Hope your doing well. I had a great trade. Second best of the year with ATPG. Watching for now with a potential rally in the dollar could add more pressure to oil. I have a couple of questions about ATPG and it's value.
    1-Do they have any of there production hedged? Reason for asking, is that if the dollar rally hard, Oil could have a nice pullback into first quarter.

    2-Does anyone have a good feel how the reserves are priced. I'm looking for other Oil companies that have been sold recently and it's closer to $10 a barrell of oil. Making ATPG closer to a $40 target vs. your $80. Either way a premium from here.

    3-Also How much of an increase in proven reserves could be coming? They mentioned a increase, a few months back. But nothing since then.

    Thanks again for you informative posts....

    Hey Devon,

    Do you have any feel for EPS or estimates? I'm uncertain with the contractors sharing revenues from Telemark. Also I'm not sure of cost basis. I guess difficult to predict...Do you have any projections of EPS next year?

    Hey Devon,

    Always enjoy your posts. Not sure if you have read the last presentation by ATPG, but the CFO states that a double in revenues is possible (ref: Bloomberg interview). Now I'm not sure if he is reffering to this years revenues and it will double next year. I think he stated that 1 billion in revenues is not out of the questions...Maybe run the numbers on EPS at a billion and it may give you a better picture. But I'm not sure how much of that will got tot he contractors for their services.

    Enjoy the posts,
