    My Research

    I find that trying to determine what will be reported as earnings for an E&P to be difficult. I have read all the opinions that I could get my hands on and they seem to value MPO above the current price. So why do some companies do better than others with less?

    I think that many others don't get earning right either. As a result, they trust "the beat". Companies do well or are punished based upon the analysts assigned to follow them. MPO, as the new kid on the block, probably didn't get the high end talent. Such is life. What I think MPO is going to need to do is some hand holding / steering of these guys into predictions that can be met / exceeded. I find 12 month targets from $5 - $13. Not a great confidence builder for investors that tend to be conservative by nature.

    Want to see what a proactive management can achieve? This is a shocker. A dry, NG ( 0 oil) company we have around here. If you want a shock, check out and compare RRC and you will see what I mean.

    Sentiment: Buy
