    Furthermore, yesterday we found on the news that General Electric will buy Alstom SA (ALO), the French builder of power plants and transmission gear. The deal could consist on the separation of Alstom’s transport business, which manufactures high-speed TGV trains, to make easier the approval of the French government. A potential value for Alstom at about $13 billion would be about 25 percent more than its current market value. As a consequence, stock price surged as much as 18 percent in Paris, the biggest jump in the last nine years. General Electric will gain control of Alstom’s technology for power transmission and power plant maintenance.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By James E. Brumley]

    Truth be told, oil giant Halliburton Company (NYSE:HAL) and major oil player Denbury Resources Inc. (NYSE:DNR) aren’t likely worried about little ol’ Propell Technologies Group Inc. (OTCBB:PROP)… at least not yet. Their lack of concern may end up being a big mistake, though. Propell Technologies Group has developed a new piece of oil well technology that can rejuvenate a struggling oil flow that might just make names like Denbury Resources and Halliburton green with envy.

    Denbury Resources (DNR) fell 2.5% to $7.95, while Diamond Offshore Drilling (DO) fell 2.2% to $37.24. Schlumberger (SLB), Nabors Industries (NBR) and Newfield Exploration (NFX) each fell 1%.

    Small steps
    NRG Energy isn’t the only company seeking to use captured carbon to clean up coal and fuel oil production. Denbury Resources (NYSE: DNR  ) is building its business completely around the enhanced oil recovery process. So far the company has produced over a hundred million barrels of oil through carbon flooding. However, it is investing to build out the necessary carbon dioxide transportation infrastructure to revive even more nearly dead oil fields.

Paul Eisman, CEO and president, cited the deteriorating margins that I discussed in last week’s issue: “Our third quarter results were impacted by a volatile and deteriorating margin environment resulting primarily from decreasing discounts for West Texas crude oil.”

    But because SPH is more involved in the retail end of propane instead of the production/logistical side, it has been significantly outperformed by NGL Energy Partners (NYSE: NGL) and Ferrellgas Partners (NYSE: FGP). In short, the latter two are the ways to play higher propane prices, whereas SPH will see much less benefit from higher-priced propane.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Syme thinks BG (BRGYY), Total (TOT), ConocoPhillips (COP) and BP (BP) make better bets. He explains why:

    What works in this environment? We see the best opportunities around companies with strong growth credentials (BG, Total, ConocoPhillips) and those that are quick to align with the needs of shareholders at this point in the cycle (BG, BP, Total and ConocoPhillips) – all Buys.

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    We see the greatest share price discounts to sum-of-the-parts valuation for BG (BRGYY), Statoil (STO) and Repsol (REPYY), while ExxonMobil (XOM) still trades at small premium to our SoP valuation. The Gordon growth model approach points to Total and BP being clearly the cheapest of the supermajors. Chevron is penalised by its ongoing capital intensity in 2017; for reference, if we had used 2018 estimates it would emerge as one of the better value stocks in the sector.
