Is Now the Time to Buy Chesapeake Energy?

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst Jason Moser and advisor Charly Travers discuss topics across the investing world.

Last month in their Buy, Sell, Hold series, Jason rated Chesapeake Energy a sell due to concerns about management, while Charly pointed out that the company does have a premier asset base, which makes the stock worth revisiting if the price were to drop. With the stock down over 30% in recent weeks, it's time to see if Chesapeake's massive oil and gas reserves can overcome Jason's reservations about CEO Aubrey McClendon.

As oil prices climb, investors can find opportunities to ride the wave of surging profits for energy companies.

    Why did he need to hide his loans from the shareholders? His puppets on the board would have probably gave him another huge bonus or maybe he has some more maps to sell to CHK
