    You bring up a fair point. We were looking on their website to see what type of distribution network they have so we can buy their engines for our generator builds. They show none, but i did see a few websites that offer their engines. Most are out west and we are in the Southeast. Currently we have to buy a packaged unit with a skid and generator from an OEM and then dress it out like our customers want. We only build about 5-10 a year so I'm sure we wouldn't have OEM status.

    Well what happens and this has happened many times before, they will just start shutting in the wells. When the wells are not economically viable to produce, they just plug them. Mid 90's Texas, over 196,000 wells were plugged.

    Many factors to consider. How much electricity it takes to get the oil out of the ground. Maybe a parted sucker rod half way down the well (to expensive to retrieve) and various other scenarios. Most of the plugged wells were stripper wells in Texas which only produced 3-10 barrels a day. This is why low decline rates are important.

    The less the decline, the more economic the well. I have lost a ton of money here as others have, but at this point I'm going to wait it out. I believe Linn is better suited than 80% of the others out there. They have plenty of debt, no doubt, but they also have the cash to pay interest and I believe will make it through this mess.

    Ask yourself why these large hedge funds are backing Linn and not others?

    Did they just sell this for $140,500.00 per flowing barrel?

    Am I reading this right?

    Two Strategic Alliances Expected to be Finalized Within the Next Month…: Recall, LINN currently has two non-binding, strategic alliances in the works; 1) its acquisition alliance with Quantum Energy and 2) its drilling alliance with GSO Capital, both of which we expect will be finalized in relatively short order. While we support the notion that both of these structures will contribute to the partnership’s ability to finance acquisitions and fund its drilling program in a balance sheet friendly manner, we expect the strategic acquisition alliance to be more impactful in the near-term, possibly adding value before year-end.

    …with Potential for Acquisition Alliance to be Impactful by Year-End: The initial agreement calls for Quantum to commit roughly $1 billion of capital to fund acquisitions, bringing the total potential size of the alliance to over $2.5 billion when combined with the ability to leverage the acquisition company “AcqCo” and LINN’s acquisition of a direct working interest. Not only would this help incrementally de-risk LINN’s acquisition story by providing dropdown potential, it also allows LINN to participate in both larger deals and deals that might not have fit the conventional Upstream MLP asset profile.

    Permian Basin Deal Likely This Summer: As shown on the following page, LINN has 6,600 net acres remaining in Howard County in the Permian Basin that the partnership is looking to swap or sell. At this point, in our view, a cash offer is most likely. Based on recent acreage comps, we expect LINN to receive between $20k and $25k per acreage, equating to ~$132 million to ~$165 million. This would be capital LINN could use to fund an acquisition which would help boost cash flow and incrementally lower the partnership’s leverage ratio.

    They have a $14 price target on Linn Energy and a $15 price target on LinnCo.

    In the past month both Linn Energy (LINE) and LinnCo’s (LNCO) stock prices have been under pressure thanks to investors’ lingering worries about Linn Energy’s leverage and its ability to pay its distribution.

    Those concerns are overblown, however, according to Raymond James’s Kevin Smith and Rich Eychner. In a new note today they reiterate a Strong Buy rating on LinnCo and an Outperform rating on Linn Energy, writing that there are several pending positive catalyst to offset debt worries.

    They believe that the market continues to underestimate Linn Energy’s base cash flow business, along with the impact of its multi-year hedge book and its acquisition opportunities.

    More from their note:

    Handful of Positive Catalysts on The Horizon: Despite oil trading roughly flat over the last month, LinnCo’s stock price is down approximately 9% (before dividends), in-line with the E&P index (down 8%) and the Alerian MLP index (down 8%). However, we expect that performance will improve over the coming months as LINN has several positive catalysts on the horizon; including 1) the anticipated finalizing of both its acquisition alliance with Quantum Energy and its drilling alliance with GSO Capital, 2) the potential monetization of its remaining 6,600 net acres in the Permian, and 3) the well results from its Terryville field acreage in Louisiana.

    Yes very disappointing and I have a lot at stake here. After reading that report I have come to the conclusion this management team couldn't run a hamburger stand!

  • logantrader1960 by logantrader1960 Aug 8, 2014 1:23 PM Flag

    Go back and read the Quarterly report and look at what the G/A expenses were for LNCO.
    And as you read further you will note LINE actually pays these expenses, or the majority of them. Now with that being said (and investors read this as well) buyers are realizing that LNCO should realistically be trading hand in hand with LINE. If for nothing else the dividend yield.

    I think of LNCO simply as a holding company for LINE. I also believe most management reports you read will also point out that LNCO is based solely off the performance of LINE. Most know this, but when you realize there are little to no expenses related to LNCO it makes perfect sense for them to trade hand in hand.

    Agree / Disagree?

    2nd Quarter Earnings Report

    logantrader1960 logantrader1960 Aug 7, 2014 7:51 AM Flag

    Yeah thumbs Up management!

    I especially liked this clip......

    LINN completed its first operated horizontal well in the basin during the second quarter which targeted the Wolfcamp B interval in Midland County. This well had a 24-hour IP rate of 1,158 Boe/d, 91 percent of which was oil and a 30-day rate of 1,017 Boe/d, 89 percent of which was oil.

    That has to be one of the best 30-day rates I've seen in a while!

    They also have some debt, but the latest well should help tremendously on that issue. Personally I believe right now anyone selling this is making a mistake, or just simply needs the money. The stock is under heavy accumulation right now which is something it hasn't seen for a few years.

    IMO if it plays out right is this should be around $5.00-$7.50 pps in a year.

    LNCO and taxes (part 2)

    You mention in your message " I have for my quarterly estimated income tax payments assumed that they are 100% taxable". We don't know what your income or taxable bracket is. The simple matter of fact is LNCO pays $2.90 a year per share in dividends which would be considered income if you pocket the money.

    Read this from the WSJ 01/10/2013

    The basics: Qualified dividends, as well as capital gains, for individuals in the 25%, 28%, 33% and 35% income-tax brackets will continue to be taxed at 15%. Individuals with more than $400,000 in taxable income—and couples with more than $450,000—will see the rate rise to 20%. (People in the 10% and 15% brackets, as before, will have a zero tax rate on dividends and capital gains.)

    Mike a .10c divy would equate to about $1.00 additional increase in pps (LNCO). If they can pull of covering the distribution (LINE) @ 1.1 x and increase it a dime then the pps may rise a little higher. I like the old adage that you have to walk before you run, but a few solid quarters, an increase in dividend and a 1.1 x coverage with a normalization to around a 7.0 % dividend, then you would be looking at $40.00 PPS with the $3.00 Divy.

    Another point as well while we are on the subject. As they acquire new leases and as the price of Oil and Gas increases the hedging is locked in at a higher price. I am not sure on an existing lease if they are hedging the new production at a higher price, but it would be nice to know and maybe someone can elaborate on this subject.

  • Does the recent rise really surprise investors?

    It certainly doesn't surprise me and is why I loaded up on this @$27.00 and $27.40 as much as I could and within reason of my portfolio. I figure this will run up to about $32.50 give or take a few cents with most days being up and some being down. At $32.50 this will still be paying a 9% Divvy. From there we will need to see what the quarter comes out to and what the remaining fiscal year looks like. I believe if the quarter comes out good and the fiscal year looks good going forward, then it will run to about $36.00 (8% Divvy) by the end of the year. Of course a strong outlook, a few upgrades and a slight possibility of an increase in distribution on LINE's behalf could mean even more possibly up to around $42.00.

    I always believed this management team and never believed the pundits. Remember LINE was one of the only companies that didn't cut their distributions during the hard economic downturn in 2008/2009. They have a plan, they are sticking with it and thankfully have ignored all of the pundits like a REAL management team would do.

    GLTA and the best of the best to the Longs!

    Just a re-cap from the CC:

    Joe Dancy - LSGI Advisor

    Okay. Let me ask you a – this is a question you guys are actually in my finance textbook for (inaudible). And here is a question for, and it’s sort of 1,000 foot overview. You guys have the third party registered professional engineers put out the reserve reports, the PB10 of your proved reserves.

    You take that number and you subtract out debt and you come out to like $7.52 per share, the stock selling right now at $1.27 a share. How are we going to – I know you have a plan to somehow because you own 35% of this outstanding shares, to get the share price closer to the – that’s the proved reserves, I mean, we’re not talking about probable reserves. What does that – do you have like an overall plan to somehow get that share price a little bit closer to the asset value is what I’m trying to ask?

    Tom Cooke

    Well, I think it’s – I think its performance. We’ve had a bad year and we’ve had a bad quarter. I think that you’re going to see the market respond to us being able to prove that we can produce more barrels and reach those objectives that we’ve outlined. So, we’re hopefully, have seen the bottom. We have definitely seen a sharp turn.

    I could say if you go back to runtime alone with 50% increase that means you got 50% basically shut in at any given time. So that’s in the 70s now. So, I think you’re going to start to see performance and it’s – I can’t stress enough how much I believe that’s been tied to morale and performance in the field.

    Joe Dancy - LSGI Advisor

    Okay. I mean, because the discrepancy between the asset value and the stock, I mean, it’s substantial and it’s – you really see it this large which to me presents opportunities. And it’s interesting analysis. So, thanks guys, good luck, I appreciate the help.

    Rocky 3 Completion Issues

    "I believe you would need to factor in debt per flowing barrel as well to get a good comparison."

    You are absolutely correct and with this factored in (debt) this is around $104,500 per flowing barrel.

    I'm holding out hope that the personnel changes, increase in run times coupled with the Rocky wells and re-completions will get this one back on track without any further added debt.
