Guru Investment Theses on Bonanza Creek Energy Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Bonanza Creek Energy - Feb 25, 2014

Bonanza Creek Energy, Inc. (NYSE:BCEI) is an independent exploration & production company focused on the Niobrara Shale play in northeast Colorado. Bonanza shares rose to new highs in October and the company posted better than expected third quarter results, but its shares still slumped into year-end. Bonanza appears to have responded well to weather-related challenges and appears to be on track for another strong year of growth in 2014. However, investor concerns about Rockies oil price differentials due to infrastructure constraints may have weighed on the share price.

From Ron Baron (Trades, Portfolio)'s Baron Funds fourth quarter 2013 commentary.
