  18. 18. Sell Pitch: Ultra Petroleum NYSE: UPL Gregory Butler
  19. 19. UPL <ul><li>Ultra Petroleum Corp. engages in the acquisition, exploration, development, production, and operation of oil and natural gas properties. It primarily focuses on developing and expanding a tight gas sand trend located in the Green River Basin in southwest Wyoming. </li></ul><ul><li>Market Cap – $7.24billion </li></ul><ul><li>Beta: 0.87 </li></ul>
  20. 20. BACKGROUND <ul><li>Purchased 100 shares at $52.01/share </li></ul><ul><li>Currently trading around $48.51/share </li></ul><ul><li>Only loss of $350 </li></ul>
  21. 21. THESIS <ul><li>UPL: Natural Gas Pure-Play E&P Bet </li></ul><ul><li>Portfolio Rebalancing Toward Oil </li></ul><ul><li>Sold XTO, a similar Nat Gas E&P </li></ul>
  22. 22. <ul><li>“… for E&P companies to rally you need a RIP in natural gas or for the winter to get VERY cold or from companies to start producing in record fashion...except that won't happen because there’s already too much supply.” </li></ul><ul><li>--Graham Gullans, Former President of BCIC, Citi S&T </li></ul>
  23. 23. WEATHER <ul><li>Last month we have seen unexpected weather patterns which would have historically caused natural gas to move higher, yet prices have not responded </li></ul><ul><li>This demonstrates the oversupply </li></ul>
  24. 24. UPL <ul><li>Owning UPL is a bet on: </li></ul><ul><li>-Management’s ability to continue increasing production at low costs </li></ul><ul><li>-Long-term resilience of natural gas prices </li></ul><ul><li>However, many well-run, well-financed natural gas e&p companies exist – Chesapeake Energy, XTO(Exxon), EOG Resources, etc. The result is oversupply. </li></ul>
  25. 25. NATURAL GAS
  26. 26. LIMITED UPSIDE Company 2008 Earnings Current Stock Price Precise P/E UPL $2.65 $49 18.490566 ARD $2.20 $41.77 18.9863636 COG $2.08 $41.32 19.8653846 PXD* $3.06 $49.49 16.1732026 *2007, not 2008, represents recent peak EPS (better management of costs)
  27. 27. PORTFOLIO REBALANCING <ul><li>Increase cash in portfolio </li></ul><ul><li>Continue shift toward oil- and services-bias (November discussion) </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>-Oversupply in natural gas market (storage levels are 13% above their five-year average), natural gas supply over-responds to demand --> ceiling on prices </li></ul></ul></ul>
  28. 28. LONG OIL: LONG RECOVERY Source: Kevin Kelly (November, 2009 Pitch)
