Guru Investment Theses on Apache Corporation

Third Avenue Value Fund Comments on Apache Corporation - Sep 12, 2014

Apache (APA) is transforming its holdings from a diversified array of E&P assets to one that is more focused on unconventional onshore liquids plays. We expect the company to live within its cash flow, excluding the CAPEX required for its two liquid natural gas (LNG) projects, Wheatstone and Kitimat. Longer term, we think Apache will at least partially monetize LNG projects, which are operated by Chevron, to focus on higher return projects that support production and cash flow growth. Although not expected nor central to our investment thesis, the recent involvement from JANA Partners further validates our view that significant value remains under‐appreciated within Apache’s still fairly diverse portfolio of E&P assets.

Third Avenue Management Comments on Apache - Jul 23, 2014

Oil and gas exploration and production (“E&p”) companies (Encana Common and Apache Common (APA)). Shares of both companies were purchased below our estimates of net asset value, despite generally improving business fundamentals, particularly for natural gas.

Bill Nygren Comments on Apache - Jul 10, 2014

Our best-performing sectors for the second quarter were energy and information technology, and from these sectors, Apache (APA) and Intel were the Fund’s two strongest individual contributors.



The energy sector got a lift from rising commodity prices, and Apache enjoyed better than expected earnings and some value-maximizing capital allocation decisions. Apache is selling what we think are fully valued oil and gas assets and using the proceeds to repurchase undervalued shares of the company. We are always thrilled to see management teams allocate capital to the highest return alternatives.



Even with strong recent gains for Apache and Intel, the two stocks still sell at a significant discount to our estimate of intrinsic value.

Diamond Hill Capital Comments on Apache Corp - Jun 26, 2014

Shares of oil and gas exploration and production company Apache Corp. (APA) responded to the company’s weakened competitive position relative to the domestic oil and gas industry.



We also eliminated oil and gas exploration and production companies Apache Corp. (APA) and Occidental Petroleum Corp. (OXY) and reinvested the proceeds into other opportunities that presented a larger discount to our estimate of intrinsic value.

Third Avenue Management Comments on Apache - Sep 12, 2013

Fund Management also increased its position in Apache Common (APA), which was discussed in last quarter's letter, increasing the Fund's exposure to the oil and gas exploration and production ("E&P") sector to about 10%. The main attraction of our E&P investments (including Apache, Devon Energy, Encana and Total) is common stock pricing at a significant discount to our estimate of NAV with NAV consisting primarily of proved reserves of oil and natural gas. Each company in whose common stock the Fund is invested has a strong management team and a track record for generating attractive long-term NAV growth. Recently NAV growth has been weaker for our companies, and the overall industry, owing primarily to low natural gas and natural gas liquids pricing and slower than expected production growth from new oil plays. The poor overall sector stock performance and resultant divergence between the intrinsic value and market value of the common stocks has attracted the attention of activists who have targeted several companies including Hess Corp., Murphy Oil Corp., Chesapeake Energy Corp. and Occidental Petroleum Corp.The Value Fund sees the same disparity between the intrinsic value of corporate assets and public market prices. Although our companies have not been publicly targeted, the boards and management teams have taken actions to try to improve shareholder value such as selling assets and repurchasing stock (Apache) and pursuing an IPO of midstream assets (Devon).

We further discuss the Fund's recent investments in the energy sector, as well as how sector themes arise from our bottom-up investment approach, in the essay that closes this letter.

From Third Avenue Management’s third quarter 2013 letter to shareholders.

Bill Nygren Comments on Apache Corp. - Jul 11, 2013

Apache Corp. (APA – $84)(APA)
Apache is a large oil and gas exploration and production company operating both within and outside of the United States. The stock is down from a high of $149 reached in 2008 when natural gas prices were higher and from $134 in 2011 before it missed optimistic production growth targets. Disappointed investors pushed the stock to a low of $68 last quarter. Pessimism has left growth expectations so low that we now believe they will likely be exceeded. More importantly, management has changed its tune regarding its stock. Previously, like many of its peers, Apache management emphasized absolute growth without regard to per share growth. So our ears perked up when management said that, because the acquisition market valued Apache’s assets at higher multiples than the stock market, the company would begin to divest assets and use proceeds to repurchase undervalued stock. Selling at just nine times consensus earnings estimates for 2014 and with expectations of good capital allocation, we believe Apache is an attractive addition to our portfolio.

From Bill Nygren's second quarter 2013 commentary.
