+ Watch CRK
on My Watchlist
The Company is engaged in the acquisition, development, production and exploration of oil and natural gas.
the bottom is not here, but it is close
Jun15 Put Option $0.90, $5 Strike
Contrarian + Speculative PlayExpecting oil prices up in 6-12 months.
I think I might see some more stumbling from here but long term looks good to me.
Buying at the bottom @ $12.5, waiting for the pop...
Good fundamentals and they are positioned well to take advantage of global recovery.
Guessing as usaul!
How'd this one sneak by? Sector-wide play.
See news bulletin below....self explanatory:Petrohawk Shares Rise On Haynesville Shale Gas Well OutputLast update: 6/30/2008 10:33:53 AM By Christine Buurma Of DOW JONES NEWSWIRES NEW YORK (Dow Jones)--Shares of Petrohawk Energy Corp. (HK) shot up as much as 14% early Monday after the energy company said natural gas output from its first well in the Haynesville Shale had begun. The announcement boosted the shares of several other companies, such as Goodrich Petroleum Corp. (GDP), Forest Oil Corp. (FST) and Penn Virginia Corp. (PVA), that are active at the Haynesville Shale, which lies under north Louisiana and east Texas and is one of the hottest of the so-called unconventional gas plays. In a press release, the Houston company said its Haynesville well was producing 16.8 million cubic feet a day of gas. This came in at the upper end of the 10 million to 20 million cubic feet a day range that analysts had predicted, said Dan McSpirit, an analyst with BMO Capital Markets in Denver. "There's no question that this goes a long way toward confirming the large gas-in-place estimates that are being put forth," McSpirit said. "I think there will be a lot more of the same over the balance of the year." In shale formations, the gas is embedded in fine-grained sedimentary rocks, making it more difficult and expensive to develop than conventional gas plays. Companies have been piling into the Haynesville Shale and other such North American gas shale plays as gas prices have risen, making drilling economical. In March, Chesapeake Energy Corp. (CHK) pegged its potential reserves at Haynesville in a range of 7.5 trillion to 20 trillion cubic feet. Shares of Chesapeake rose 3.6% to $66.41 after Petrohawk's announcement. Petrohawk shares were recently up $3.44, or 8%, at $46.40, after hitting a fresh all-time intraday high of $48.82 shortly after the market opened. Petrohawk's Haynesville results "will be viewed as a positive for all the Haynesville players and will likely keep the momentum chugging for the group," analysts with Houston-based investment bank Simmons & Co. International said in a note to clients Monday. Among the other stocks enjoying a boost from Petrohawk's announcement were GMX Resources Inc. (GMXR), Exco Resources Inc. (XCO), and Comstock Resources Inc. (CRK). -By Christine Buurma, Dow Jones Newswires; 201-938-2061; firstname.lastname@example.org Click here to go to Dow Jones NewsPlus, a web front page of today's most important business and market news, analysis and commentary: http://www.djnewsplus.com/al?rnd=3lGBWWahUFfXD%2FiXfjAf1g%3D%3D.
