ask yourself this: why did they announce the loan only hours after they screwed their shareholder base with the filing of asset sale delay if they could not pay off the bank credit line which forbade the asset sales. If they announce the loan before , then they avoid the big drop, the filing would not have had the same effect. Sure traders who got in at the lows are happy, but they screwed the longtime shareholder by the way they handled this, as usual. This management has to either leave or change their character markedly.
The news of the unsecured loan is a vote of confidence and I am thinking it could be a turning point from nightmarish past three weeks. Goldman knows CHK is sitting on a powerful portfolio , check out their drilling report http://www.drillingahead.com/Chesapeake mostly oil and liquids , given some time to get the oil flowing this loan we get CHK past a ruff spot and if NG pricing rebounds Aubrey is going to look like a genius.
Panic selling or buying is usually a wrong move. We all know CHK has considerable assets which cant just disappear. WALLSTREET swings are usually violent, reacting to it has a lower probabilty of making the right move. Just be calm and think it out, better chance of making a better descion. WALMART went through this last week, CSCO and CHK are suffering this week. Remind yourself of what the company represents, neither company is a growth company (although they would like to believe they are) and are trading at resonable PE. These businesses will come back under new management.
