My Favourite Junior Oil Stocks Exposed - the David Pescod Interview

Thu, Aug 19, 0:46 AM ET, by Keith Schaefer, Oil and Gas Investments Newsletter

This article is a transcript of an interview I did with Canaccord stockbroker David Pescod, one of the best stockpickers in the junior oilpatch I know. I started doing business with Dave in 1998, the middle of the "nuclear winter" of junior mining stocks, because I saw he was making good money in a bad market. I read his daily (and free) Late Edition newsletter every single day to hear what other analysts and executives are saying. He originally sent this article out in early August.

By David Pescod

Sometimes, timing is everything. But it certainly must have taken more than a little nerve to start an investment letter when it looked like the world was ending 18 months ago.

Keith Schaefer (who, like Scott Koyich) has played a big role in the investor relations business, should do quite well in this business where knowing everyone in the business counts…Keith is your basic social workaholic. It was time to catch up with Keith…

Dave: Keith, you've been writing your Oil and Gas Investments Bulletin for 18 months now. Your timing was great, as oil was $40 when you started. Now that oil seems to have found its level, where can investors make money?

Keith: You make money in the growth stories. And then you just watch the charts and buy them on a bad day, believing that the world is not ending - again.

Dave: Well, what growth stories do you like right now?


"—-ing Will Change Everything"

Technology, by its very nature, creates change.

But there's one technology in particular that is causing massive changes in the oil and gas exploration industries.

Now"¦I can't give it all away right here. But rest assured - "—–ing" is a technology understood by very few.

But at the same time, "—–ing" is about to create explosive short-term profit opportunities for those investors who know where to look.

That's where I come in.

I'll tell you all about "—–ing" - yes, including the actual name - and how you can claim your share of the fortune that's about to be made.

I'm talking about no less than two dozen triple-digit profit opportunities over the next 12 months.

Click here to learn more right now.


Keith: There's a few of them. One of my favourites right now is Second Wave Petroleum, symbol SCS on the TSX-V It trades just under $3. They have an oil discovery at Judy Creek in central West Alberta, where they have over 100 sections of land in the Pekisko formation, and can drill 4 wells per section. They are steadily proving out the whole field, and they're a great takeover candidate.

Dave: I own a bit but they're a bit expensive, aren't they?

Keith: Some growth is already factored into their share price, but that's true with most good growth stories - especially the oily names. It means they have strong market backing. You want that in this kind of slow market. Most analysts figure the Pekisko field alone could be worth $7 a share to them. And they have recently been able to more than double production from their wells with a new fracking technology. That hasn't been taken into account yet. And the big upside here is the deeper Beaverhill Lake formation.

Second Wave has almost 100 sections of it about 1000 metres underneath the Pekisko. This is the same formation that took Arcan from $1 – $5 per share this year. Arcan is getting 600 barrels per day of just light oil on some of their wells, just a few miles from Second Wave. Second Wave drills their first well into the Beaverhill Lake sometime in Q3.

If that well hits anything close to Arcan's production rates, I think the stock is a huge win. If it misses, analysts say the Pekisko alone could take the stock to $7. And the controlling shareholder wants to sell the company, so in my mind a buyout is very, very likely.

Dave: What about an international play?

Keith: Coastal Energy, symbol CEN is my favourite right now. It is rocketing production from 10,000 barrels per day to possibly 18,000 barrels a day in just six months, and the stock actually has a lower valuation per flowing barrel than it did a year ago. I think I'll be selling this stock for more than $10 a share.

Dave: Two oily picks. What do you see for the price of oil this Christmas?

Keith: Higher - probably $85 – $90 a barrel. Oil use in the US is on the rise, despite their tepid economy. China's growth continues - that's a social phenomenon now that politics nor economics can reverse. Those people want energy and consumption. And investors forget that natural oil declines means millions of barrels a day have to get replaced each year.

Dave: OK, that's oil, what about gas - where do you think the gas price will be in Christmas - and do you own any gas stocks?

Keith: I'm still bearish on gas, until I see a sign the US shale gas production starts to fall off. Canadian production has been ramping up lately, which is not a good sign. Majors are now hedging under $6 gas. But nearly every year there is a big trade in gas from September to January, so I'll say gas is $4.25 in Canada and $4.75 in the US at Christmas. I like the gas stories that have a lot of wet or liquid rich gas, or oil attached to them. Bellatrix and Vero Energy both have good wet gas ratios, improving the economics a lot on their gas production. And they both have their Cardium oil plays, which comes with no acquisition costs as they already owned the land before the Cardium was hot. I do have a list though for when gas prices turn.

Dave: Tell us about your letter - how has it been going and where do you get most of your investment ideas for your newsletter?

Keith: The letter has taken off really well. Like you said, my timing was good last year and the portfolio has done really well, so that helped get me going. Subscriber feedback has been great – they really like the plain, simple English, and the portfolio results have been there.

Most of my ideas come from all the research reports I get each day. I sift through them early in the morning and see who is making discoveries, where the money flow is going. And a few of my subscribers work in the oil patch, so I'm starting to get some good ideas from them.

Dave: I do enjoy your writing style, and it's refreshing to hear someone speak English around oil and gas. Thank you for your time Keith!
