EQT: Holding Up Progress

Secondary common stock offerings will temporarily depress the stock price. The market to market hedging losses cloud the progress that management has made. Those mark to market losses are an opportunity loss of the ability to sell the natural gas for a better price. The company actually breaks even or makes money on natural gas sold at the hedge price. Management has made some good acquisitions while decreasing operating costs that will make for a far better future.

EQT: Management Tackles Pricing

Pricing differentials will be addressed. Accomplishments until now have been in operations and acquisitions. Average realized pricing and sales flexibility need to be addressed. It does take time to change sales strategy due to long-term sales contracts and midstream contracts. There appears to be a sizable profit opportunity with a different sales strategy.

EQT: Reinstated Dividend, $1 Billion Buyback, Proving An ESG Story

Board of Directors approves $1 Billion share repurchase program. Board also reinstated a $.50 annual dividend beginning in Q1 2022 along with long-term leverage targets of 1.0x-1.5x EBITDA. Separately, EQT CEO Toby Rice defended EQT and the broader US energy industry from an attack by Senator Warren who claimed energy prices 'being driven by energy companies’. Rice's response demonstrates why he is one of the best energy executives in the world and speaks volumes about misconceptions surrounding energy security, innovation and climate change.

EQT Corporation: The Opportunity Cost Of Hedging

The company gained more exposure to the currently strong commodity pricing environment. The brutal honesty of this management is a very rare and valuable trait. The hedging accounting causes GAAP to distort income results as reported on the income statement. An opportunity cost gets lumped in with a financial loss or income. The company is probably barely profitable without the effect of the hedges. The absurdity of free cash flow is exposed by the lack of cash flow underlying the calculation.
