Chesapeake's New Game Plan

In this edition, energy analysts Joel South and Taylor Muckerman look at Chesapeake Energy (NYSE: CHK  ) and discuss the steps the company will take in 2013 in an attempt to return value for shareholders.

While the company has either the No. 1 or No. 2 position in 10 of the top 15 plays in the U.S., 2013 will be all about four locations. In an attempt to continue its massive liquids growth, Chesapeake has earmarked 90% of its 2013 capital expenditure budget to projects in high oil projects in the Eagle Ford, Utica, Mississippian Lime, and Anadarko Basin. Chesapeake is moving into a harvest stage after years of massive acreage accumulation. With 2013's funding gap just about closed, targeting high oil content and, for the first time ever, decreasing natural gas production might be the moves to boost the company's share price. 

Chesapeake's share price depreciated after negative news surfaced concerning the company's management and spiraling debt picture, but with both of these issues being addressed, is it time to accumulate shares of this company?
