Guru Investment Theses on Halcon Resources Corp

Meridian Funds Comments on Halcon Resources Corp - Dec 17, 2014

Halcon Resources (HK) is an independent, U.S.-based oil and gas exploration and production company. At the time of our investment, the stock was out of favor due to a combination of high levels of investment spending and poor drilling results at select wells. This created an opportunity to invest in the management team, which has an excellent record of finding and developing energy assets, and their ability to deliver improved exploration results and production growth. Halcon’s stock underperformed meaningfully in the quarter, reversing strong performance in the first half of 2014. As a development-stage company with a leveraged balance sheet, the company’s stock demonstrated greater volatility than the sector as a whole and declined significantly more than the price of oil. Despite short-term volatility potential, we believe the company has the ability grow reserves and production and could potentially be an acquisition target over the long term.

Baron Funds Comments on Halcon Resources Corp - Dec 10, 2013

Halcon Resources Corp. (HK) is an emerging growth company in the independent exploration and production industry. The company is well positioned in several key unconventional oil plays around the country. Even though the company appears to have improved its drilling results and met expectations for growth in the third quarter, its shares suffered from balance sheet concerns and the company's ability to fund its growth over the next 12-18 months. Halcon raised capital in August and sold assets at a favorable price, both of which we think should allay these concerns.

From Ron Baron's Baron Funds third quarter 2013 commentary.

Business Description

Industry: Oil & Gas - E&P » Oil & Gas E&P
Compare:OJSCY, APC, APA, HRTPY, SGTZY » details
Traded in other countries:RAQH.Germany, HKRCP.USA,
Halcon Resources Corp was incorporated in Delaware on February 5, 2004. The Company is an independent energy company, which is engaged in the acquisition, production, exploration and development of onshore liquids-rich oil and natural gas properties in the United States. The Company operates in one segment which focuses on oil and natural gas acquisition, production, exploration and development. The Company's oil and natural gas properties are managed as a whole rather than through discrete operating areas. The Company's proved reserves, production and acreage are located in concentrated positions within multiple onshore U.S. basins. The Company's geographic diversity provides flexibility to direct capital resources to project with the greatest potential returns and access to multiple key end markets, which mitigates its exposure to temporary price dislocations in any one market. The Company competes with a substantial number of other companies that have greater financial and other resources. Many of these companies explore for, produce and market oil and natural gas, as well as carry on refining operations and market the resultant products globally. The primary areas in which it encounters substantial competition are in locating and acquiring desirable leasehold acreage for its drilling and development operations, locating and acquiring attractive producing oil and natural gas properties, obtaining sufficient availability of drilling and completion equipment and services, obtaining purchasers and transporters of the oil and natural gas it produce and hiring and retaining key employees. There is also competition between oil and natural gas producers and other industries producing energy and fuel. Furthermore, competitive conditions may be substantially affected by forms of energy legislation and regulation considered from time to time by the government of the United States and the states in which its properties are located. The purchasers of oil and natural gas production consist primarily of independent marketers, oil and natural gas companies and gas pipeline companies. The Company's operations are subject to stringent federal, state and local laws regulating the discharge of materials into the environment or otherwise relating to health and safety or the protection of the environment. Numerous governmental agencies, such as the United States Environmental Protection Agency, commonly referred to as the EPA, issue regulations to implement and enforce these laws, which often require difficult and costly compliance measures.
