Guru Investment Theses on Unit Corp

Royce Funds Comments on Unit Corp - Mar 16, 2016

From the Energy sector, Unit Corporation (NYSE:UNT) is involved in several businesses, including oil and natural gas exploration and contract drilling services. We sold our shares in the third quarter due to our higher conviction in other energy services names that we think are better positioned to generate high returns on invested capital over the long run.

Royce Funds Comments on Unit Corp - Mar 15, 2016

On an industry basis, two groups detracted meaningfully—energy equipment & services and machinery. Both were substantially overweight vis-à-vis the Russell 2000. The first was home to Unit Corporation (NYSE:UNT), a long-time Royce favorite. The company is something of an anomaly in the energy industry because it runs multiple businesses, including oil and natural gas exploration and contract drilling of onshore oil and natural gas wells. Most energy companies focus on only one of these activities. We opted to sell our shares of Unit in Premier based on our own growing preference in the portfolio for companies involved in single lines of business.
