Longleaf Partners Small-Cap Fund Commentary, in its Q4 2021 investor letter, mentioned CNX Resources Corporation (NYSE: CNX) and discussed its stance on the firm. CNX Resources Corporation is a Canonsburg, Pennsylvania-based natural gas company with a $3.0 billion market capitalization. CNX delivered a 6.33% return since the beginning of the year, while its 12-month returns are up by 11.94%. The stock closed at $14.62 per share on January 21, 2022.

Here is what Longleaf Partners Small-Cap Fund Commentary has to say about CNX Resources Corporation in its Q4 2021 investor letter:

"CNX Resources (27%, 2.14%; 9%, 0.46%), the Appalachian natural gas producer, was another top contributor. With higher strip gas prices, another strong year of FCF and a 13% annualized repurchase pace last quarter, our appraisal of the value increased over 20%. However, the company’s conservative hedging program that has helped it withstand prior bear markets also held back earnings growth this year. The board, led by chairman Will Thorndike, recently authorized another $1 billion of repurchase, representing nearly one third of outstanding shares at today’s price. Despite higher absolute FCF than Appalachian comps with inferior inventory positions, CNX trades at less than half of their enterprise values."
