Anyone know whats up with Amersiur Resources ?

Friday, Jul 14 2017 by

Hi any thoughts on this one I know oil is down by all counts stock overhang but seems in permanent down-trend.

Forecasts are for a swing back into profit next year and has decent net cash understand also the famous pipeline is not currently handling the amount of oil expected which isn't helping.

Any other thoughts appreciated.

aflash 14th Jul 1 of 3

Can not explain.
My last girlfriend is Columbian. Talking to her and her two children and following the news I learned how wild the place is. Pipeline could easily be bombed.
With this background I have traded the shares at least four times over the past two years, never trusting a long hold or large amounts. I buy around 22p and have sold at 21 for a loss and 25, 27 and 29 for profit. Recently back in and showing a loss like you.
According to Malcolm Graham Wood the company is well run and has plenty of ressources. Stockopedia does not help with Junior Ressource stocks much except during the Oil crash it showed Dragon Oil DGO as strong so I bought and it was taken over.
This time it shows AMER has more value than AEN but less than PPC, two other South American Oilies I follow.
It gives AMER a slightly better quality rank.
Another data base I use shows AMER has more value than AEN and PPC.
So I shall hold.
If I buy more it will only be to catch an intraday Lo and sell on the bounce.

This company Amerisur Resources (LON:AMER) has a serious communication problem.
Its took the BOD several weeks to report thats its main Platanillo field was shut down due to social unrest.
How much trust can you have in them after that ?
These small oilers can alway drift even lower no matter how bombed out they appear on the surface.
Agreed that they appear to have limited debts and decent cash flow but as outlined by aflash they are limited due to dependenace on OBA pipeline for exporting their oil at commercial rates. The governament are trying to takeownership of the pipeline company by backdoor means of limiting its operation.
I don't hold.

The impression I have is that the stock has turned a corner since it announced its interim results on Monday. Apparently, production is now running at some 6000 BOPD. The OBA has reduced operating costs from US$27.2 per barrel to US$17.7. At 7000 BOPD this is expected to go down even further to US$15. It's also targeting between 176 MMBO and 226MMBO in a fully funded drilling programme in areas it knows well and where it has had considerable exploration success. Tellingly, it is also about to install a third pump that will give it a capacity to put up to 28800 BOPD through the OBA. I suspect the market is now factoring in what it's actually doing rather than what it has been planning to do.
