+ Watch APA
on My Watchlist
An independent energy company that explores for, develops and produces natural gas, crude oil and natural gas liquids.
Even if APA were managed better, the fossil fuel industry is plummeting and may not recover for years. APA's huge debt burden will become much worse when interest rates rise. Environmental incidents such as the wastewater leak in Alberta will not win the favor of the incoming Trudeau administration nor the likely next President Hillary Clinton. Eventually electric and self-driving cars will wean us off fossil fuels.Ford Equity Research, Ned Davis Research Research Group, Jefferson Research, Trading Central and GMI have all given APA a sell rating. Jefferson Research rates APA's balance sheet quality and operating efficiency as WEAKEST. This is partly why the Starmine Equity Summary Score is VERY BEARISH.GMI rates APA as having AGGRESSIVE Accounting and Governance Risk. Mr. Christmann, who is Chief Executive, Director and President, has a potential cash severance package exceeding five times his annual pay, an extreme example of a platinum parachute. Insider Ownership is only 0.5 percent. Management's interests are not aligned with that of shareholders.
When petrol starts back up, APA looks especially promising.
buy into fear
Well managed, well positioned. Oil up well in 5 yrs.
no hedging for the next 2 years is going to be an issue ...lower oil is probably here to stay for awhile, I doubt that we see 90 again in the next few years
Beaten up on lower oil. I think lower oil is temporary.
Oil prices are down and so is this stock. Might e an overreaction. - MK
Getting hit really hard from the oil price drop. Decent company that I think will return when the price returns to it's normal levels.
After the big drop in oil prices, I asked one of the smartest Fools for his top picks in the energy sector. This is one of them.
Cheap oil and Apache is selling no core assests to better allocate resources.
shux...if you're not engaged in nrg plays....you're a pacifist......
everybody needs oil china and india will pay big bucks impending war in middle east will send prices through the roof!!!
If Apache's potential reserve estimates are true, you are paying roughly $3 per barrel of recoverable oil equivalent. That is a great deal, and this stock comes with a low PE.
Permian Basin player -2nd largest
undervalued E&P independent oil giant compared to peers, strong focused on american oil boom.
With a semi-partnership with Sinopec and exploring spirit, what is not to like about this company except strain relations with China and the likelihood oil price will drop below $90. Enjoy the honeymoon.
Underappreciated range of oil/gas assets from which they are generating far superior production growth than their large cap peers. Issues in Egypt, where they have some production, have clouded investor judgement when actually the company is continuing to move forward well. Increasingly aware of shareholder value requirements via sale of peripheral assets.
