    Z – could you share your thoughts on CRK?

    I had asked about them 15 months ago or so.  They've yo yo'd a bit over the last 12 months going from $6 / share to about $26 down to $3 and change and then to friday's closing of $6.15

    They have $60+M in cash and $1.1B in debt.  Obviously wouldn't be on your short list, but they seem to be hanging in there better than most with distressed balance sheets and have historically had strong leadership. 

    I'd be looking at them more as a spec play. They were a $5B company back in mid-2008 and curretly have a market cap of about $374M.
