Companies in the oil and gas space have been posting performances that beat analyst estimates quite often this quarter, and InterOil (NYSE: IOC ) is part of that growing list. While its recent performance and the company's prospects for exporting LNG to the Asia-Pacific market may sound tempting, there are a couple reasons why you may want to hold off just a little bit longer before making a decision on InterOil.
With so much of the company's success pinned on picking a partner for its LNG export facility, and with founding CEO Phil Mulacek recently retiring, there are still some questions about this company left unanswered. In this video, Fool.com contributor Tyler Crowe details why these lingering questions should offer enough reasons to hold off on InterOil just a little bit longer.
While waiting to see how InterOil addresses these open questions, energy investors would be hard-pressed to find another company trading at a deeper discount than Chesapeake Energy. Its share price depreciated after negative news surfaced concerning the company's management and spiraling debt picture. While the debt issues still persist, giant steps have been taken to help mitigate the problems, such as choosing a new CEO.
