Guru Investment Theses on Core Laboratories NV

David Rolfe Comments on Core Labs - Apr 14, 2017

Both of our oil service stocks corrected from recent January highs during the first quarter. Recall that from late January 2016 lows (remember fears of “ $20 oil?”), SLB rallied from $61 to $87 in mid-January 2017; a +43% gain. CLB (NYSE:CLB) rallied from $89 to $125 in early January 2017; a gain of +40%. (Note the stock raced to $135 in May last year, too.) The profit-taking was not too surprising after sharp stock price advances over the past year. The cause was two-fold. First, an unusually weak seasonally (winter maintenance) refinery pause. Second, the unusually large build-up of OPEC inventories before the commencement date of agreed-upon supply cuts. On the demand front, global oil-demand estimates continue to be revised upward, continuing a 7-year trend. Our thesis in these two stocks continues to play out as expected. Supply/demand continues to come into balance after the recent depression in the oil patch. Oil is back to over $50 again. Oil service activity is quite robust in North America. Oil service company pricing inflation has snapped back after recent deflation. International spending remains at depressed levels. Net, net, the oil service industry remains in the early innings of our expectation of a multi-year recovery.

We think Core Labs is at the leading edge of a multi-year rebound in the E&P capex spending cycle. Core Labs’ revenues are derived from providing high-return, niche products and services for E&P companies that are looking to increase the output of already producing wells. The majority of the Company’s revenues are derived from their Reservoir Description (RD) business, which is focused on studying a fluid and core samples from a client’s oil or gas field, and then providing critical data sets on how to better produce from existing wells. The revenue stream of this business tend to be much less cyclical compared to most of the industry, as Core Labs’ RD services represent a small fraction of the client’s production budget, yet produces sizable returns. The Company’s more activity-driven business – Production Enhancement – grew 15% sequentially, and has begun to see the benefits of increased E&P spending, as clients work through a large backlog of uncompleted wells, particularly in unconventional North American basins. We expect this business to lead the return to growth in the short term, while Core Labs’ steadier, high-margin, Reservoir Description business should drive growth longer-term, particularly as international E&P spending begins rebounding later this year and into 2018.

Baron Energy and Resources Fund Comments on Core Laboratories N.V. - Nov 21, 2016

Core Laboratories N.V. (NYSE:CLB) is a leading provider of core and fluid analysis to the oil and gas industry. Shares fell on moderated short-term growth and margin recovery estimates and reduced revenue guidance. Core Labs dominates its niche, has limited competition, provides value added, non-commoditized services, and generates the highest returns on equity and capital in the industry. We believe strong secular growth drivers in each of its three businesses will allow it to outgrow other oilfield service companies while generating premium returns.

David Rolfe Comments on Core Labs - Oct 21, 2016

Core Labs (NYSE:CLB) was the third largest detractor from our relative performance during the third quarter. While “energy” continues to be a four-letter word at this point in the cycle of U.S. growth investing,5 we continue to think that Core Labs’ value proposition is worthy of multi-cycle consideration. We estimate that roughly 85% of the Company’s revenues are generated by providing equipment and services for the upkeep of their customers’ existing carbon producing fields. As such, the majority of the value that Core Labs provides its customers is not directly predicated on the activity of drillings rigs, or even on the short-term price of oil. For instance, the Company’s Reservoir Description business generated over 60% of consolidated revenues during the trailing 12 months. Reservoir Description revenues have declined just -16% from their trailing 12-month peak (set during late 2013 through mid 2014 – when oil traded at twice today’s levels). A significant portion of Core Labs’ revenues are generated outside the United States, so we estimate revenues in Reservoir Description have probably fallen by a high single digit percent, constant currency – despite the E&P industry (Core Labs’ customers) drastically cutting budgets by between - 30% and -75% during that timeframe. Thus, a significant portion of Core Labs’ business is very well insulated from the vagaries of short-term oil price fluctuations. Although the margins of this segment have suffered more than revenues, we expect that margins have bottomed and should rapidly rebound with E&P spending budgets, as Core Labs’ management has prudently balanced costs without sacrificing personnel capacity.
