Callon Petroleum: Some Risks But Incredible Valuation

Sep. 09, 2022 5:43 PM ETCallon Petroleum Company (CPE)CLR, FANG, MTDR, PXD9 Comments


  • Callon Petroleum is an independent E&P producing primarily crude oil in the rich Permian Basin.
  • The company's oil-focused nature is a bit of a turn-off for me given that crude oil's fundamentals are not as good as many other fuels.
  • The company is using hedges to protect itself against fluctuations in oil prices, although many of them are locked in at prices well below today's.
  • The company is significantly levered compared to many of its peers, which creates risks that the company is working to address.
  • Callon Petroleum's valuation is so compelling that it overcomes its weaknesses and makes the company worth considering as an investment.

In-depth Research on underfollowed dividend stocks with 7%+ yields
Power Hedge is an independent stock research and analysis firm with a passion for macro- and microeconomic analysis. Power Hedge focuses our research primarily on dividend-paying, international companies of all sizes with sustainable competitive advantages. Power Hedge is neither a permabear nor a permabull. However, we believe that, given the current structural problems in the United States, the best investment opportunities may lie elsewhere in the world. The firm's strategy is primarily buy and hold, but will stray from that strategy on occasion. Our ideal holding period is forever, however we realize that both internal and external forces can impact an investment. For this reason, we believe that it is vital to keep a close eye on all of your investments. We do not believe in changing an investment based on short-term market swings.

Traditionally, we have not always responded to comments but in order to improve the quality of our research, comments will be reviewed and we will respond to issues regarding errors or omissions. This does not include our premium service, "Energy Profits In Dividends" which is available from the Seeking Alpha Marketplace. This service does include detailed discussions with our team both on the reports themselves and in a private forum.
