Chesapeake Energy (CHK) management announced a $2 billion sale of the Utica Shale operations recently. Mr. Market reacted very coolly to this debt reduction progress.

However, continuing significant sales to pay down debt send both continuing cash flow and remaining production in the wrong direction. Mr. Market appears to be losing patience just when management appears to be finally solving many of the company’s inherited problems from a past chief executive officer.

    Oil prices have continued rebounding this year, with the U.S. benchmark price WTI up another 7% to around $65 per barrel. That improving oil price has helped drive up most oil stocks. I say most because Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN), Apache (NYSE:APA), and Newfield Exploration (NYSE:NFX) are flat to down so far this year because investors seem to have overlooked them entirely. Because of that, they trade for a dirt-cheap valuation versus their peers, making them intriguing options to consider.

Top 10 Medical Stocks To Own Right Now

Samsung is crushing it at the moment, but keeping up that momentum could be tough.

The South Korean tech company shrugged off a series of setbacks in the past year and a half — including fire-prone phones and jailed executives — to post record earnings and become the world’s biggest chipmaker.

Samsung (SSNLF) is the world’s largest maker of smartphones, but it also makes chips and other parts for all kinds of electronic devices. On Wednesday, it reported operating profit of about 54 trillion won ($50 billion) for 2017, a new annual record.

Samsung’s revenue just from its computer chips business climbed to around 74 trillion won ($70 billion), beating rival Intel’s (INTC) total revenue of $63 billion.

But analysts say Samsung, South Korea’s biggest company, could face bumpy times ahead.

The end of the chip boom?

Samsung’s surging sales have benefited hugely from strong demand for memory chips, which are used in everything from smartphones to medical equipment.

That includes companies like Western Digital (WDC) , which is more of a disk-drive maker, but which also has a flash-memory business.

Top 5 Undervalued Stocks For 2018

An upstart airline just snubbed the owner of British Airways.

Norwegian Air Shuttle said Friday that it has rejected two takeover offers from British Airways parent IAG (BABWF) because they undervalued the airline and its prospects.

IAG, which also owns Iberia and Aer Lingus, confirmed that it had approached Norwegian. But the industry giant said that talks had “ended without an agreement” and it was “currently considering its options.”

Norwegian stock fell as much as 11%. Shares in IAG, which reported earnings on Friday, surged 4.5%.

One of Europe’s newest airlines, Norwegian has made a splash with ultra-cheap transatlantic flights from its bases in London, Paris and Barcelona.

The upstart, which now flies around 500 routes to more than 150 destinations, carried 33 million passengers in 2017, compared to 105 million for IAG’s carriers.

IAG said in April that it had amassed a 4.6% stake in the budget airline, signaling its interest in a potential acquisition. But investors who had been hoping for a positive update on Friday were left disappointed.

Top 5 Undervalued Stocks For 2018: Cheniere Energy Partners, LP(CQP)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Paul Ausick]

    Cheniere Energy Holdings’ sole asset is an approximate 48.6% limited partner interest in Cheniere Energy Partners LP (NYSEAMERICAN: CQP).

    Cheniere Partners is constructing and operating natural gas liquefaction facilities at the Sabine Pass LNG terminal in the Gulf of Mexico. The company plans to construct up to six natural gas liquefaction trains, which are in various stages of development, construction and operations. Trains 1 through 4 are operational, Train 5 is under construction and Train 6 is being commercialized and has all necessary regulatory approvals in place.

  • [By Maxx Chatsko]

    While numerous LNG export terminals dotting the Gulf Coast are in various stages of development, the first major facility and current largest producer is the Sabine Pass facility owned by Cheniere Energy Partners LP (NYSEMKT:CQP). The partnership is largely controlled and majority-owned by Cheniere Energy. That means the current 6.9% distribution yield is essentially funding the construction of the parent’s next export facility in Corpus Christi, although any investor seeking income can get in on the action.

  • [By Tyler Crowe]

    Even though the spot price has come down a bit since then, it still gave management enough confidence to increase its guidance for the full fiscal year. Management raised its estimate for full-year adjusted EBITDA to $2.2 billion-$2.5 billion and distributable cash flow from Cheniere Energy Partners(NYSEMKT:CQP) to $0.35 billion-$0.55 billion.

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]

    Cheniere Energy, Inc. (NYSE: LNG) is leading the United States toward a future that includes material liquified natural gas exports. The company’s controlled partnership,Cheniere Energy Partners, L.P. (NYSE: CQP), already has the Sabine Pass LNG export facility up and running, rewarding investors with hefty distributions. Cheniere Energy is still building another facility in Corpus Christi that’s kept the red ink flowing; however, if the impact of Sabine Pass is any indication, Cheniere Energy could be worth a deep dive.
