  • Chesapeake Energy: Maintain Positive View After Revised Spending Plan

    Chesapeake Energy (CHK) announced a revised spending and capital expenditure plan for 2015 on March 23, 2015 and I maintain my positive view on the stock after the announcement. This article discusses some of the key highlights of the plan and the reasons to remain bullish on the stock.


    From a previous guidance of $4.0 to $4.5 billion, Chesapeake Energy has revised the capital expenditure plan to $3.5 to $4.0 billion. After adjusting for 2014 asset sales, the revised capital expenditure plan would result in production growth of 1% to 3% for 2015. Considering the point that oil prices remain weak, the production growth target can still be considered to be good. Even if Chesapeake Energy clocks the same production as FY14, I believe that the overall performance can be considered as strong for the year. Therefore, moderate production growth for FY15 even after a revision in capital expenditure is the first reason to be positive on Chesapeake Energy.
