  • Reuters - oil rises ? by dickie3times
    Mon, 06 Apr 2015 21:02:00 GMT

    US oil settles up $3, or 6.1%, at $52.14 a barrel

    1 Hour 30 mins ago

    Reuters

    link

    U.S. oil rallied 6 percent on Monday as traders re-assessed how quickly Iran could increase exports after a preliminary nuclear deal and anticipated that a months-long rise in U.S. inventories may be slowing.

    U.S. crude for May delivery closed up $3.00, or 6.11 percent, at $52.14 a barrel, its largest one-day gain since February 3. Brent crude for May delivery was up $2.90 from Thursday at $57.80 a barrel.

    Brent crude tumbled nearly 4 percent on Thursday after Iran and six world powers announced a framework agreement on the OPEC member's nuclear program. But initial expectations of a quick recovery in oil exports were tempered by views that it could take up to a year to roll back sanctions.

    "While clearly a bearish headline, a final deal and full lifting of sanctions still faces a number of obstacles," Morgan Stanley analysts said in a note.

    Iranian finance, energy sectors could soar on deal
    "Even if a final deal is reached, we do not expect any physical market impact before 2016," the analysts said.

    Oil extended gains after industry intelligence group Genscape reported that stockpiles at Cushing, Oklahoma, barely rose last week, according to traders. It would be the smallest increase in stocks since November at the delivery point for the U.S. crude contract traded on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

    A Genscape official was not immediately available to comment. By dickie3times

  • AEN the exception to the rule...? by dickie3times
    Sun, 08 Feb 2015 14:52:00 GMT

    The current downtrend in the oil and mining sectors may see a swift recovery in a few months with AEN maybe, bucking the trend but if the trend continues it maybe a year before the sector recovers

    I'm reducing my holdings in OIL for quality precious *metal miners, *pharmas and *tech stocks and some gas/energy producers >
    The tech industry looks ever more exciting with newer technology, especially the applications of 'facial recognition' that has got hundreds of companies interested including the airline industry, security firms, stores and supermarkets....? SECURITY is about to utilize a new level of technology and interest in this industry...the mind boggles at the applications for 'facial recognition' and the companies that are perfecting it.

    ...sink or swim?
    Big decisions in the oil industry as the oil price continues to collapse. Will the oil industry go into 'schizm' (a word usually reserved for the church)?

    Investors must decide as the industry is about to end 130yrs of control over the world's oil energy resources and give way (finally) to the innovations of the electric vehicles powered by 'lithium' batteries...the big car makers are slowly switching to electric and will survive, while the oil industry will suffer huge losses and inevitable mergers or take overs, giving the small investor a chance, maybe to get his money backif that is, someone wants to buy out the company. Do or die, sink or swim, that is the decision many oil investors are making right now?

    OIL STOCKS ARE IN SCHIZM.BUT, history has shown that oil always recovered. However, with the advent of the 'electric' car, big industry are slowly but surely making a change to the new sleek, fast all electric vehicles. So, where does the future in oil leave investors? Is oil losing out as the worlds No1 commodity....after 130years, the oil industry could collapse, never to recover?

    Oil Drillers ‘Going to Die’ in 2Q on Crude Price Swoon
    By Joe Carroll Jan 22, 2015 9:39 pm

    link

    Oil drillers will begin collapsing under the weight of lower crude prices during the second quarter and energy explorers who employ them will shortly follow, according to Conway Mackenzie Inc., the largest U.S. restructuring firm.

    Companies that drill wells and manage fields on behalf of oil producers will be the first to fall after the benchmark American crude, West Texas Intermediate, lost 57 percent of its value in seven months, said John T. Young, whose firm led the city of Detroit through its 2013 bankruptcy.

    Oil companies have slashed thousands of jobs, delayed billions of dollars in projects and dropped or scaled back expansion plans in response to the prolonged rout in crude prices. For oilfield service providers that test wells and line the holes with steel and cement, the impact of price reductions forced upon them by explorers will start to pinch hard during the second quarter, Young said Thursday.

    “The second quarter is going to be devastating for the service companies,” Young said in a telephone interview from Houston. “There are certainly companies that are going to die.”

    Oilfield-service providers are facing a “double-whammy,” he said. Even as oil companies are demanding 20 percent to 30 percent price reductions, they’re also extending wait times before paying their bills, enlarging cash-flow gaps for the drilling and equipment firms, he said.

    I worry that investors are just waiting for a spike to trade out..?

    ..Most stocks in the sector are down 50% or morebest strategy, imo...top up and build up your stakes for the better times ahead.

    Take a look at some of the favourites in 2014..all gone kaput. But 'shrewdies' will be staking big time at current levels as some are ridiculously oversold on good fundamentals.
    No one seems to be interested in RNS' at present and are simply taking profits on every/any spike. Even the best news releases are quickly taken down with profit taking, imo the 'shorters' are not helping and are putting the mockers on AIM stocks.
    I just hope AEN doesn't suffer as the oil prices keep falling. We need to beat the current trend of "sell on the news" By dickie3times

    Maybe we went too high tooo soon and what with the sector suffering as well, i am surprised we hadn't dropped below 25p...incidentally the level at which we took off?
    As the oil prices recover so will AEN and most other mining/oil stocks....? Just look at the prices of others' in the sector...down 50% and more...Shrewdies will be buying up while others are getting out. In 6-12 months they'll be in clover, imo By dickie3times
  • Comment by waytogo333
    Fri, 05 Dec 2014 13:57:00 GMT

    Alejandro Jotayan, CEO of the Company, commented: "This production test in Vaca Muerta is a meaningful advance in the development of our shale acreage. We are already producing from shale without needing to frack, reducing costs and the necessary break-even oil price. It de-risks 30% of Andes' net acreage in Vaca Muerta, more than doubling our already de-risked acreage; and is the first Andes operated intervention and production test in Vaca Muerta. We look forward to continuing to develop our acreage in this world class play"

  • Chart by ShareInvestment
    Tue, 05 May 2015 14:55:26 GMT

    With today's correction IMO the break out of the downwards channel tried last week is being tested and we could go either way. Time will tell.
  • Looking very good by ShareInvestment
    Fri, 01 May 2015 08:05:06 GMT

    I think that this chart looks very strong and that we are moving/breaking out of a downwards channel which started with the peak of 70p on 10.2.14, a bit of time will be needed and positive developments in Argentina plus oil price. All in all my personal opinion is that the movement back up has started, but time will tell.
  • Brokers by ShareInvestment
    Thu, 30 Apr 2015 08:20:36 GMT

    I mentioned below I take broker ratings as a pure indication as they always move as deemed appropriate, in this respect I have just noticed that the lowest out there from Macquarie was 27p on 15.4.15 (even if thes tock is one of their picks of the year) and now after only 2 weeks (and related price change) it has, as at 28.4.15, gone to 34p.... the other 3 brokers still have targets of 72, 80 and 82. As usual time will tell, but 2015 is an election year in Argentina and things will change.
  • New corporate presentation by ShareInvestment
    Tue, 28 Apr 2015 10:48:04 GMT

    I had a look at the new corporate presentation available at www.andesenergiaplc.com.ar and find very intersting the Forward Plan towards the end and the Vaca Muerta section confirming that their plan is: Farm-out to major partner to start a massive development ! Incidentally a few pages before there is a clear summary of who are the big players that have recently farmed into Vaca Muerta, namely Petronas, Exxon, Chevron, Shell etc. I wouldn't be surprised if some of these players look at the AEN asset base today on the back of the recent oil price slump, as they all know that this years' low will represent multi year price lows.

    The system now shows a buy of 4,000,000 shares at 28, thus could be very interesting. In addition please note that the company confirmed that the most recent corporate presentation is available at www.andesenergiaplc.com.ar (will now look at it)

    Mon, 27 Apr 2015 10:22:28 GMT

    The Andes webpage does not show any updated broker reports, but I have noticed that GMP Securities seem to indicate an updated buy rating on 26.4.2015 with a target price of 82p and was wondering if anybody had been able to read their report and comment on it. Macquarie indicate a TP of 27 (not sure if this is correct as from previous posts they seem to have AEN as top pick), Westhouse of 80 and RFM of 72 Although I take these targets are pure indications, as they seem to change depending on the share movements, I find it interesting that most of them show a target price which is between the 70s pence highs seen in 2013 and 2012 and the low 80s seen in early 2012 (I don't count the short term spike to 145.during feb 2012). I wouldn't be surprised if we move in that direction over the next few months leading to the autumn elections in Argentina and possible bottoming oil price completed by then. Clearly the election outcome and oil price environment will dictate were we got from these cheap valuations levels and how fast, but from my experience it is best to buy these illiquid shares well in advance of key factors as they can move very quickly, but time will tell if I'm correct.
  • Andes tip of the year by JohnPlay
    Sat, 25 Apr 2015 22:40:04 GMT

    see Macquarie sales team comment: ANDES ENERGIA - Small cap pick of the year I am more convinced that this is a stock that could generate some very large returns this year given their position in the World Class Vaca Muerta Shale in Argentina. The first thing to point out is that THIS IS NOT ANOTHER POLAND. The Vaca Muerta is the world's third largest shale oil resource and the only producing shale oil outside of the USA - it is primed for development: flat, accessible plentiful water, no animals, vegetation, cities or community issues to meander, intrastructure in place, excellent geology (of course) and it has already been proved up and is producing - and Andes has +6million acres of the stuff which is enormous. Why invest now? Activity is gearing up - 400 wells were drilled between 2011 and 2014 and yet 500 wells are being drilled this year alone. Large Industry players continue to make their move - many were caught sleeping in the US and ended up buying their way into the shale and they don't want to miss out this time. Recent investors include Shell, Petrobras, Total, Exxon, Chevron, Wintershall with more wanting access - however nearly all the land has already been licensed... Political situation is improving - with the 'pro business' government being the front runner to win the elections in Aug this year, arguably never has there been a better time to invest in the country. ASSETS - Andes have 6 licences, 4 discoveries, 2 producing wells in the shale. IMPORTANTLY they have optionality as they hold 2 blocks 100%, 1 block with 40% WI and the other three remaining blocks 20%-27% WI with YPF their partner. Their blocks are surrounded by existing infrastructure, services companies and pipelines and geologically it looks excellent. ECONOMICS - ROI are around 15% today but this is expected to rapidly increase as costs continue to drop hard. The shale is naturally over pressured so opex is only ~$10/bbl. The shale is still in its relative infancy wrt Horizontal drilling, but that is the opportunity that Andes has - economics are good now, so with Horizontal drilling, it is expected to be significantly improved. CAN COSTS FALL? - absolutely. The country has been producing oil for over 100 years so technical knowledge is high. Competition is increasing as more and more Services companies expand their operations, unused equipment and rigs are coming down from the US, timing per well is reducing rapidly and the number of fracs per well is also increasing. NEXT STEPS - Andes has a stable production base of around 2,500 bbl/d (from Conventional production in Colombia and Argentina) to pay for G&A, business development and to provide the company a base with which to grow their operations. Given the scale of the resource that they have, the company plans to enter a series of farm-outs to accelerate the work program. Sure it is small cap but the company will have a valuation materially larger than it is today.
  • Next target ...42p by applegarth
    Fri, 24 Apr 2015 10:45:04 GMT

    And imo in short time? Closing on all time high of 72p. Rising oil prices has helped?
