Peak’s core beliefs:

- The only way to survive in bad times and prosper in good times is to be a low-cost provider

- The value creation event in the energy business is exploration drilling

- Gulf of Mexico drilling when successful is extremely profitable because of low cost vs. size of prize

- You can’t leverage up an exploration company, it will come back to haunt you in this cyclical industry

Why a value investor should love his company Contango (MCF):

- Manages for value per share value creation, no point in just getting big

- Does not receive or issue options

- Has reduced share count by 2 million shares over the past two years which has increased each shareholder's ownership interest by 15%
