GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Guru Investment Theses on Chesapeake Energy Corp

Mason Hawkins Comments on Chesapeake Energy - Feb 17, 2014

Chesapeake Energy (CHK) was the largest contributor in 2013, up 59%. Together with new CEO Doug Lawler, the board that we helped seat in 2012 is instilling financial and operating discipline into the company. Over the last 19 months, the company reduced SG&A, sold a number of non- core assets, decreased capex, and committed to living within its cash flow in 2014. The company is focusing on its strong assets in the Eagle Ford, Marcellus, and Utica plays in order to grow production profitably. Even after the stock's gains, Chesapeake's oil and gas reserves sell for a discount to our appraisal. That appraisal would grow significantly in the long-term bull case for low cost natural gas replacing coal for power generation, fostering manufacturing renewal in the U.S., displacing some oil as a transportation fuel, and becoming a major export.

Mason Hawkins Comments on Chesapeake - Aug 13, 2013

Our participation in overhauling the Chesapeake (CHK) board last year is paying off. The stock has gained 23% YTD and is the Fund's largest holding. During the second quarter, Doug Lawler, who was formerly a Senior Vice President and on the Executive Committee at Anadarko Petroleum, became CEO of CHK. His compensation aligns his interests with shareholders. He is committed to increasing oil production, lowering operating costs, and reducing debt to extract value from CHK's strong set of assets.

John Rogers Comments on Chesapeake Energy Corp. - May 09, 2013

Specifically, Chesapeake Energy Corp. (CHK), a holding in some of our other portfolios, priced a joint venture at prices roughly 35% lower than recent transaction values for similar land. The deal implied low prices for deals across the space, hitting Contango's stock. Many believe the company's sale is imminent, and while it is reasonable to assume it could be, we do not believe management would sell its unencumbered assets on the cheap when they can afford to wait. As patient investors, that is what we would do, and we count their team as fellow travelers.

From John Rogers’ first quarter 2013 commentary.

Longleaf Partners Comments on Chesapeake Energy - Nov 13, 2012

Chesapeake (CHK) gained 2% in the quarter and rose39% from its low point in May. The substantial governance changes we discussed in last quarter’s report not only lifted the stock, but also improved the prospects for more conservative capital allocation going forward. The company announced $6.9 billion in asset sales during the quarter and anticipates approximately $2 billion more this year. In spite of the company’s progress, the stock was down 14% YTD. Although the natural gas price moved up in the quarter, it remains below the marginal cost of production for most plays. Natural gas also impacted CONSOL,which was flat in the quarter but down 10% YTD.Continued switching to cheap gas has pressured coal prices, and CONSOL owns both natural resources. The supply/demand imbalance should self-correct as natural gas drilling has declined substantially in response to low price, and demand has increased at electricity plants. Longer term demand from industrial plants, LNG exports,and conversion of trucks to this clean and abundant energy source would support an increase in natural gas prices and a higher value for both Chesapeake and CONSOL.

Mason Hawkins' Southeastern Asset Management on Chesapeake Energy - May 23, 2012

Summary: Chesapeake (CHK)’s natural gas assets are the best in the world, which does not mean much to the market right now, but it is still cheap. The big debate is about leadership. Southeastern does not care for the founder’s wealth program. As company grew, it made less sense and potential grew for conflict of interest. Now the company has announced the end of the program and that they will separate the roles of chairman and CEO. There are positives and negatives in partnering with McClendon, and the positives have outweighed the negatives. They believe the best source for energy right now is natural gas and it will be rewarding for long-term shareholders.

Bruce Berkowitz Buys Chesapeake Energy, Berkshire Hathaway Inc, Sears, Sells CIT, MBIA, Wells Fargo
Bruce Berkowitz had a good year in 2012. That was after a miserable 2011. It seems that the redemption of funds have stopped and he could buy some more stocks. He hasn’t done much buying over the past year due to redemption. But he did buy back some past holdings in his fund. He buys into Chesapeake Energy, Canadian Natural Resources, and Genworth Financial. All of them were the past holdings in his portfolio. He added to Berkshire Hathaway, Sears Holdings, Leucadia National Corporation, sells CIT Group, MBIA, Wells Fargo & Co during the 3-months ended 03/31/2013, according to the most recent filings of his investment company, Fairholme Capital Management.

Chesapeake Energy Corp was incorporated on 1989. It is a natural gas and oil exploration and production Company engaged in the exploration, development and acquisition of properties for the production of natural gas and crude oil from underground reservoirs and it provides marketing and midstream services. The Company manages its business as three separate operational segments: exploration and production; marketing, gathering and compression (midstream); and service operations, which are comprised of its wholly-owned drilling and trucking operations. The Company focuses its natural gas exploration, development and acquisition efforts in the eight operating areas: Barnett Shale, Fayetteville Shale, Haynesville Shale, Marcellus Shale, Mid-Continent, Permian and Delaware Basins, South Texas/Gulf Coast/Ark-La-Tex and, Appalachian Basin. Chesapeake Energy Marketing, Inc., one of its wholly-owned subsidiaries, provides natural gas and oil marketing services, including commodity price structuring, contract administration and nomination services for Chesapeake, its partners and other producers. Its oil production is generally sold under market sensitive or spot price contracts. Its natural gas production is sold to purchasers under percentage-of-proceeds contracts, percentage-of-index contracts or spot price contracts. It competes with both major integrated and other independent natural gas and oil companies in acquiring desirable leasehold acreage, producing properties and the equipment and expertise necessary to explore, develop and operate its properties and market its production. The Company's exploration and production operations are subject to various types of regulation at the U.S. federal, state and local levels. Such regulation includes requirements for permits to drill and to conduct other operations and for provision of financial assurances covering drilling and well operations.
