    not this time.....history doesn't always repeat itself...

  • Seriously...a little late to the game...

    Research analysts at Citigroup Inc. cut their target price on shares of Oasis Petroleum (NYSE:OAS) from $52.00 to $16.00 in a report released on Monday.

  • DNR wont be able to afford the capex to keep the oil flowing. How will they pay off the debt? The stock would be at zero now, except people are betting on an oil price rebound. I wouldn't bet on it. Look at what happened to natural gas and coal.......

  • May be helping shares today, but the assumptions are too aggressive IMHO:

    Oasis Petroleum By Topeka Capital Markets

    We are reaffirming our Buy rating of Oasis Petroleum, but believe shares could be depressed until oil prices stabilize or improve. We are lowering our price target to $25 from $38 on our reduced 2015 and 2016 estimates.

    Oasis announced its preliminary 2015 total capital expenditure plans at $750 million to $850 million, of which $650 million to $750 million is for drilling and completion activity for annual production growth of 5% to 10%. The 2015 program (at the midpoint) represents a 44% reduction from the 2014 program of $1,425 million.

    With the precipitous drop in oil prices, Oasis has made the prudent move to hunker down and spend more in line with cash flow. Oasis plans to run six rigs by the end of March 2015 in the core area in Indian Hills, down from 16 rigs today. The company is high-grading its 2015 program by focusing on its core position in the Bakken, where we calculate the 10% break-even around $50 per barrel for West Texas Intermediate (WTI).

    We have adjusted our estimates for the reduced 2015 spending program relative to 2014. Based on our estimates, we calculate a funding gap of $59.8 million, based on our $80 per barrel WTI average. This gap widens to $213.6 million at $70 per barrel WTI for 2015. We believe management has ample core inventory, flexibility and liquidity to manage through the current down cycle. As of Dec. 8, Oasis had $500 million drawn under its $2 billion borrowing base and $82 million in cash and cash equivalents.

    On an enterprise value to earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EV/Ebitda) basis, Oasis is trading at 4.1 times and 3.2 times for 2015 and 2016, versus its peers’ average multiples of 4.6 times and 3.7 times, respectively. Our $25 price target implies 2015 and 2016 EV/Ebitda metrics of 5.4 times and 4.3 times, respective

    Pure speculation of a takeover...wont happen!

  • Need strong hands here:

    Denbury Resources Inc. (NYSE: DNR) extended its losses Monday on news that two top executives got the axe and the company will cut capital spending plans in half for 2015.

    The oil and gas developer traded recently down 8 percent at $10.27; The company is off nearly 40 percent year to date.

    The departure Friday of its both its chief operating officer K. Craig McPherson and its head of production Charlie Gibson "signals that a quick turnaround from recent sputters in operating performance is unlikely," according to Credit Suisse's Arun Jayaram.

    Jayarum downgraded Denbury to Neutral, from Outperform.

    McPherson had been viewed as a potential successor to Chief Executive Phil Rykhoek, and is the second COO to resign from Denbury in 37 months, according to Sterne Agee's Tim Rezvan.

    Both McPherson and Gibson contributed to disappointing 2014 production growth, according to Rezvan, who said design flaws at a recent key project may have sealed the executives' fate.

    Rezvan joined in downgrading Denbury to Neutral and called the company "not a compelling investment" given the cut to its dividend outlook Friday and what he called "execution issues."

    Denbury's share price could go as low as $8 a share before its expected annual dividend of $0.40 a share would offer support, Rezvan said.

    The company had previously forecast an annual dividend of $0.50 to $0.60 a share, but said lower oil prices required the lower amount.

    Wunderlich's Jason A. Wangler maintained a Buy rating on Denbury pending the company's meeting with analysts Tuesday.

    But said the company's lack of share buyback plan will "likely cause concern in the market," Wangler said.
