George's Stock Picks

April Recommendation

While investing in any energy-related company in the current environment involves risks, this small cap appears to have a sufficiently strong balance sheet to at least survive and likely prosper. It had the foresight (or good luck) to raise new debt last April before oil prices plummeted. Moreover, at the end of December, this stock held cash roughly equal to its long-term debt--and it has no significant debt maturities before 2019. Even if this value stock can only achieve a fraction of analyst predictions, its stock price looks very cheap at the current level.

Even though many companies take advantage of the Chapter 11 process to reshape their businesses and balance sheets to emerge as a stronger and more competitive entity, investors are often biased against post-bankruptcy situations because of their troubled past.   Learn more.
