aceuk: Whole article bears reproduction I think: Amerisur Resources Citywire AA-rated Philip Rodrigs has upped his position in AIM-listed Latin American oil and gas developer Amerisur Resources (AMER). Rodrigs’ employer River & Mercantile acquired an additional 15 million shares in the business, taking the total up to 77 million. This equates to 6.3% of the share capital. At a share price of 19.8p, the position is worth £15.2 million. By comparison, Amerisur traded around 65p four years ago. The largest chunk of the shares are held in Rodrigs’ £877 million R&M UK Equity Smaller Companies fund, with a smaller stake in his colleague Dan Hanbury’s £311 million R&M UK Equity Income fund. Amerisur has yet to enjoy much of positive momentum associated with the broader oil price recovery, despite its recent announcement of positive results from a large field.
charlieeee: Any bonuses should be entirely linked to a formula of net earnings or share price (in their control) and commodity price (out of their control)and I agree, FA, that JW's performance, particularly in 2017, needs to come under scrutiny. If company strategy has been good (and I believe that it has) then the BOD, like ourselves, should be rewarded when it comes to fruition, as measured in the share price. The OBA is a good example. An excellent strategy in cost cutting, it was completed, but late and not operating at any thing like the capacity expected, both of which have had a financial impact and damaged sentiment and with it, the share price So management were rewarded too early: they should, like us, only benefit when their strategy translated into ongoing improved earnings/SP. The same applies to the acquisition strategy. As has been pointed out here in some excellent recent posts, the actual physical areas and number of leads owned by AMER have increased exponentially over the last 3 years. In particular, management have managed to collect for very little cost a huge area of contiguous blocks, which will undoubtedly make this company a take over target (it is the Majestic Wine/Pet City model: stage one build up critical mass). To date, however, those blocks (mostly) sit idle, a sleeping giant, and are not reflected in the share price and so the BOD, like us, should not expect reward yet. In contrast, CPO-5 is translating into an exciting play and once that is reflected in net earnings/SP, nobody would be happier than I, to see them rewarded with shares options, provided that these were locked in for a couple of years ie the reward is for long term performance. For what it is worth, I see them as an extremely competent BOD overall. They have exercised prudent financial management and generally seized times of adversity to turn into focused opportunity, but it is the absence of lining up the timing of their rewards with ours, which causes such anger.
grahamburn: This continued banging on about selling by RH (by a select few posters) is not only boring and an excuse for every flicker one way or another in the share price, but it is plainly misguided and, probably, wrong. This is exemplified by the comments in the last post (5736). The directors and indeed their advisers would be breaking corporate governance rules and exchange rules if they are withholding information which could affect the share price (good or bad) because it suits them. Similarly, it would not make commercial, business or financial sense to delay progress in any significant manner simply because it may not have any immediate or short term effect on the share price, due to downward pressure on the share price due to a significant seller (real or imagined). The directors' duty is to build shareholder value over time, and not making and implementing relevant business decisions to do it would be..... well, stupid as well as wrong. PS Please don't reiterate the conspiracy theories which have been on here for months now in response to this post because it will be..... well, boring and stupid IMHO.
al101uk: It's the discount rate :-) "I have been number crunching all morning and keep coming back to a fair value right now of 46p so I'm not sure why the share price should be trading at such a discount" I actually stopped bothering to value the company when we got below 20p for exactly the same reason, seemed little point when I couldn't imagine a world where the discounted value of future cash flows justified the drop in price.... I don't see the point of valuation if you can't get a sensible assessment of current price as baseline. No intention of restarting until there is new information. Likely to be the publication of the reserves report or a good indication of what we have at CPO-5. All the negatives I was using to stretch down to 20p appear to be clearing and sentiment seems to be improving, hopeful that fadilz model is now broken because that would indicate to me that the company has turned a corner and shortly thereafter sentiment should do the same and from fadilz current target not being met, we should quickly accelerate past it. Why? Because his model is relative and has tracked share price performance over a period of time when sentiment has been unremittingly negative, somewhat justified by the businesses performance and the general macro environment. Basically investors have only been willing to pay the bear minimum for the shares and in general that view has been re-enforced as we headed down. The first step away from the model should be the business performing better than the share price would suggest, as fadilz model looks at the business and ignores sentiment that should result in fadilz predicted share price being in excess of where we are (the situation he now finds himself in). The next step is for the share price to catch up with the business and then, as sentiment improves, overshoot his target price and head towards what in my view is a more reasonable valuation for the company. No offence Fadilz ;-)
fadilz: Big7Time, my argument is simple, but has worked pretty well over the past 3 years. I work out the % *change* in NPV vs a previous time, and simply say that if all other things are equal, then share price should change by the same amount as NPV. So if NPV is up 10% now vs then, then share price should be up 10%. My baseline is Aug 2014, when I first became interested in AMER, and share price was 60p Reserves(mb)__Barrels/day___$/bbl profit___#Years___NPV10____xBase___sp 32.8__________6769__________62_____________13_______1,088____1.00___60.0 reserves 32.8, pumped at 6769 barrels per day will last 13 years. Annual profits = 365 * 6769 * 62, and if this is repeated for 13 years, you end up with NPV of 1088. My calculations in previous posts simply repeat this calculation for currently known reserves, barrels per day and netback (profit) and then predicted share price is xBase * 60. (xBase = NPV now/1088) Very simple and crude, but has worked over time. It also allows me to evaluate possible future scenarios using reserves, production rates and profits, to assess possible upsides. Quick easy and has worked to date. It has allowed me to argue for example that our fall from 60p in 2014 is down to the fall in profits per barrell (ie the oil price, mitigated by OBA cost savings). I have just made some predictions, regarding current value - lets see how that plays out. :o) Where al101uk and I differ is that he derives estimates of value by more detailed calculations from fundamentals (tax rates, etc), and attaches a probability to future outcomes, which he then takes back to a fair present value. Now, as well he is investigating short term TA effects like momentum and sentiment. I simply say if x comes off, the value would be y. Also, any component of a model has errors attached, and very detailed calculations have more opportunity for error. As long as I can see a reasonable chance of x happening, I see reason to hold. I see 30p+ this year as good reason, and if 20k production materialises we will all be very happy. My big assumption is the 'all other things remain equal' argument that whatever else apart from NPV that affects the share price remains constant. But as I say, this has worked until now. 20p was in line with 4k production, we should now be 50% higher.
charlieeee: Well, we simply do not agree on the cause of the share price under performance. As far as I am concerned, RH selling has been minimal during this period when the share price cratered and it was squarely down to production: that is why, when we finally see production trending up, the share price does likewise The POO point of view is harder to dismiss and certainly holds good over the long term, but only if AMER has a decent level of production. There should have been a rerate on the OBA completion as such a step change in the profit per barrel should have reflected in the SP, but that seems to have been largely eradicated by uncertainty re the cap on volume and was probably impacted by the RH selling which was heavy at that time. Going forward, it will be production (and reserves when these are reported) that will drive the share price back up and with decent cash flow, they will be able to accelerate the drilling program.
fadilz: I'm sticking to my model, and predicting 36p end of year, and high 20s near term. Below I argue that the model has held up well for the 16p share price, allowing for uncertainty about real production. The model predicts high 20s near term, and mid-30s end of year, provided 7k production materialises. I'm assuming production costs for Plat, Plat-N, and CPO-5 to be $15, $30, $25 respectively. $45 OIL AND 4600 BB/D PRODUCTION --------------------------------- Area___Reserves(mb)__Barrels/day___$/bbl profit___#Years___NPV10____xBase___sp Plat___25.0__________3600__________30_____________19_______330______0.30___18.2 Plat N_7.8___________1000__________15_____________21_______47_______0.04___2.6 Predicted share price 20.8p (=18.2+2.6) These were the actual figures, so the real share price was 5-6p lower. But given the production outages, and lack of transparency from the company, I don't think the model is too far out - and clearly enough people are in the know to make a difference to the share price. Looking ahead to promised year end, and let's say $50 oil $50 OIL AND 7500 BPD PRODUCTION -------------------------------- Area___Reserves(mb)__Barrels/day___$/bbl profit___#Years___NPV10____xBase___sp Plat___25.0__________5000__________35_____________14_______471______0.43___25.9 Plat N__7.8___________1000_________20_____________21_______63_______0.06___3.5 CPO-5__13.4__________1500__________25_____________24_______123______0.11___6.8 Predicted share price 36.2p (=25.9+3.5+6.8) Actually, we are not far off Plat, and Plat_N end of year targets now, so a share price in region of 28-29p should not be far off. Let's see the monthly production figures this week, and how the share price evolves - but right now the model suggests we are very undervalued. (to restate the model: it is based on the change in NPV compared to a fixed point in the past - in this case Aug 2014, when share price was 60p. If the NPV is 50% higher than in Aug 2014, then I expect the share price to he 50% higher also. NPV is a function of Reserves, production rate, and profit per barrel, and as the company updates on these, so the current NPV and hence the share price prediction changes. A number of other factors do affect the share price price, but this method assumes that these factors remain constant now vs Aug 2014)
al101uk: First of all I don't think an RNS advising of the production shut in last month would have had any affect on my buys/sells. I bought before it was likely to be known and haven't topped up since. So I freely admit that it would make no difference to me either way. I don't really care if insider information is involved or not. I don't even really care that the shut in happened, as it's been pointed out it's one of those things in the environment in which amerisur operates. BUT, I wouldn't like to be one of the people who saw an opportunity at just under 20p to pick up some cheap shares not knowing about the shut in while others did. You could put that down to lack of research if you like. ... and I do care a great deal about corporate governance. The idea that the share price falling from just under 20p to where it is today being nothing to do with the shut in is ridiculous. If you follow that line of thinking, which most here seem too, then you have to assume that management knew they were in possession of information likely to have a "material affect on the share price of the company". Not reporting this via RNS in good time is bad corporate governance at the very least! The fact that it wasn't reported is what concerns me far more than the news itself. It's the same across GC companies, KENV was about to be cash generative right up until it had a placing (at 50% of it's then share price), Ironveld has been days away from a financing deal for two different plans with multiple surprise placings and now is "within weeks of being cash flow positive"... really? How can I possibly take managements word for that anymore? (and I have been tempted by Ironveld at 2p). This is repeated behavior from effectively the same management team and it's not good enough. You don't report an issue after it's effect has been mitigated, you report it at the time and let the market decide the likely impact... let the owners of the company decide it's value. Neither is this the first time for Amerisur, how long was the company producing at what was thought to be low levels and being questioned about the capability of the field without reply? As it turns out the wells were producing at 20% of their initial production rate without a word to shareholders until they had been treated. Then there is the bottleneck which was flagged to II's at a presentation with PI's left to interpret a red dot on map. Why don't I sell up and move on? CPO-5 seems not to be priced in. Plat alone, even at current production levels does not seem priced in. I'm an idiot when it comes to Amerisur... I freely admit that. In contrast Alliance Pharma recently posted an RNS last minute on a Friday to tell the market a drug had not received marketing approval and I immediately sold on Monday morning. I'm behaving irrationally, that doesn't mean Amerisur is off the hook. I wouldn't buy another GC company at any price.... I no longer hold any other than Amerisur, I held Ironveld for a period and considered KENV. Forgive the rant.
fadilz: jonnycash1 the share price of any stock is the result of buying and selling - on this we can all agree. My assertion is that AMER share price (resulting from buying/selling), follows movement in the NPV, derived from *current* production, reserves, and profit. This observation has held true for the 3 years in which I have observed the stock. al101uk uses NPV as well, but works from first principles to get an absolute value, whereas I look at *change* which assumes all other factors remain unchanged. The notion that some seller is vindictively pushing the price lower may be attractive to some, but by observation the movement in share price can be predicted from movement in NPV. The movement from 20-21 to 25-26 is precisely predicted by the OBA cost reduction, and +7m reserves from the northern part of Plat, as I posted on the day of the announcement (plat-22). It has subsequently happened. CPO-5 numbers aren't in, but on my assumptions it could add 3-4p taking us to 28-30p, assuming reserves, production, and costs of production are confirmed. Potential for much more over time depending on future plans, and just what has been discovered. There are significant risks but the notion that we are going down the pan is where we part company. Climbing out more like. I see potential for a doubling in share price over the coming year, and a trebling over two - using recent company forecasts.
al101uk: fadilz "my key point is that share price reflects *current* reserves, production and netback" Yes, I agree, at the moment and for some time there has been a correlation, but the share price does not necessarily reflect fair value or the risk weighted value of future returns just because it reflects core net asset value. What your saying is that Amerisur is worth current reserves and production because that's where the share price has been for some time. I'm saying that the share price is undervaluing the company by only using those metrics and that the assets have a risk weighted value over and above that. That value will be realised either when the market decides that it wants to or when those assets are exploited. Your either confusing market value with fair value, in which case I don't understand how you can be investing in shares (efficient market theory) or your confusing core nav with fair value or your agreeing with me that the company is undervalued (assigning value to future prospects over and above the current share price... which reflects core nav). Sorry, where I say core nav, lets call it core nav+ as I don't think the market is entirely discounting all future assets. If your correlation holds 100% of the time for Amerisur then the same should be true for other oil companies and patently, it is not.
