Guru Investment Theses on Contango Oil & Gas Co

John Rogers Comments on Contango Oil & Gas Co. - Apr 21, 2016

In addition, natural resources exploration and production company Contango Oil & Gas Co. (MCF) gained +83.93% as the price of oil recovered during the quarter. There was no other significant news beyond oil’s rebound—which was good news enough for Contango. Crude oil started 2016 at close to $37 per barrel, sank to a low of $26 in mid-February, then marched back above $40 before settling back a bit. Although the commodity essentially was flat, the rebound showed its year-and-a-half long slide has perhaps found a floor. We continue to think Contango has unrecognized value.
