Here' s the 3rd article on Bonanza Creek with model.

Here's the flipside article to all the talking head arguments against HAL.

    Interesting that there has been no capitulation by the shorts in nat gas.

    You would have thought by the run up, that there would have been less shorts.

    They have got to think that there is limited downside movement left but they may be OK in that there isn’t much danger of a near term move to the upside, as in they have at least 3 months probably before they have to worry about a solid move back over $3. The move higher in gas should come in advance of an improvement in supply and it will like come at the same time as we see another leg up in industrial and generation sponsored demand.

    Three Rivers Operating Company files for a $300M IPO. It plans to list on the NYSE under the symbol “TROC.” The company is an independent exploration and production company engaged in oil and natural gas exploration, production and development in the Permian Basin of West Texas and Southeast New Mexico.

    z, here is web site-appears that private equity firm The Riverstone/Carlyle Global Energy and Power Funds, a group of energy-focused private equity funds managed by Riverstone Holdings LLC is major backer-they may be cashing out but cannot confirm.

    Re 3,4,6 – just an S1 available now, biggish production and decent sized reserves, will wait to look at it when the S1A comes out with the share counts. New public Permian player, should be easy to figure out if its coming to high priced or not.

    TROC in Irion county is near where Broad Oak was. BO got rolled up into LPI. Suddenly AREX’s scarcity value as a small Wolffork player is decreasing.

    Z, I know we can’t kiss all the girls, but this one seems me to be wearing a red dress with a come hither look. Growth seems to be right, margins look good, debt seems to be low, can’t see a short thesis, but I don’t know management. What are your thoughts? CJES

    VERY INTERSTING STORY…………..as per the Q3 CC they are truly hitting on all cylinders…….zero debt, $47 million in cash………growing like a weed.

    Certainly deserves Z’s insight.

    #9 Eld, thank you…I agree, nice structure on the P&F breakout, the weekly looks especially interesting, I posted a chart…this break out on the longer term consolidation traingle suggests an eventual test of at least the 200 period near $24

    CJES – not really in my wheelhouse but have been asked to look at it multiple times. Looks like headwinds to me but have only taken a cursory look so far.
