    There's an old saying about banks being institutions that lend you an umbrella when there isn't a cloud in the sky but when it rains they want it back...Without any net working capital the liquidity comes completely from the borrowing base and the bankers who govern it. So if you were the CEO do you stand still and risk the next two quarters of sub $70 oil and the deteriorated covenants that would follow, or do you try to get liquid now by selling assets at fire sale?

    The company is swimming in capital. First the IPO in Jan then a large bond issue in late summer. Production growth shouldn't be a problem. Not a substantial amount of acreage so they might have to spend a lot on additional leases and or acquiring a smaller E&P. Seems to trade at a higher valuation than most in the sector. However, that usually is the case with tightly held companies with relatively low floats...Just my take after quick glance.

    I unfortunately got siked out with the pension obligation after interest rates tumbled. The underlying business is sound and throwing off a lot of cash.

    In the BoA/Merrill presentation the CEO said most valuation models suggest that Utica is being valued at only $1/per share ($165m). Compare that to the valuations of RICE and ECR. Both combined have less Utica acreage than RRC but both together have a $6bil EV. Since Utica is virtually not priced in at all you can see what the impact would be if they can prove it up in short time...$6bil/165mil is $36/pershare.

    Owned this for a couple years now. So far it's not the operations or investing that has held this up. It's the Cayman tax structure.

    1. Top line growth is very strong and margins are intact!

    2. Net PP&E over nine months is up close to 40%, and still not a dent in the pristine balance sheet!

    3. 2015 CAPEX looks to be cut in half, which will free up a lot of cash to either pile up or knock down the share count...Cheers!
