Love him or hate him, SandRidge Energy CEO Tom Ward
With the markets still continuing to soar to all-time highs, where are the value plays you can make today in the energy sector?
Accumulating large positions in a company has its advantages. These companies are feeling the brunt of these investors' actions.
It's important to know the specific risks your investment is facing. Here are three big ones facing SandRidge Energy.
Natural gas prices are off their recent lows -- that's not enough to convince Exxon to increase production.
Chesapeake’s recent transactions with Sinopec and Southwestern Energy came in well below expectations.
Oil and gas exploration is fraught with risk, but some companies up the ante. Led by risk-taking management teams, these companies have invested well past their cash flows to build vast energy empires. Collapsing commodity prices took share prices with them and now some of these CEO's are on their way out.
By allowing some of its acreage to expire, SandRidge should actually improve its future returns.
Avoid the pure play and enjoy sustainable profits.
Despite slashing its capital plans for the year, SandRidge is making all the right moves.
