Why the Hurricane Energy share price is crashing today

first_imgWhy the Hurricane Energy share price is crashing today I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners. Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. The Hurricane Energy (LSE: HUR) share price fell by more than 25% in early trading on Friday morning. The shares slumped after the firm warned that shareholders could lose everything if Hurricane isn’t able to secure new financing.At the start of the year, Hurricane shares traded at 33p. As I write, the shares have fallen to just under 3p — a loss of 90%. Unfortunately, today’s news suggests shareholders could still face further losses.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Funding needed to maintain productionHurricane’s share price crashed in September after the company cut its resource estimates for the Lancaster field from 486m barrels to just 58m barrels. Reserves that could be produced without further investment were estimated at 9.4m barrels — that’s just two years’ production at the current level of 12,000 barrels per day.Today’s news goes one step further. The firm says that without new investment “further development activity at Lancaster might not be possible.” In this scenario, production would continue until it became loss-making. The field would then be decommissioned “with potentially limited or no value returned to shareholders.“What needs to be done?Hurricane’s new CEO Antony Maris said he’s identified two work packages that could strengthen future production and extend the life of the Lancaster field.The first choice is to drill an additional “side-track well” from one of the existing wells. This would access oil that may not be recovered otherwise. Maris added that this work would cost around $60m and could increase oil production from late 2021.The second option is to drill a water injection well in the northwest of the Lancaster field. By injecting water into depleted oil wells, an operator can increase the pressure in the reservoir and push oil towards existing production wells. This project would cost around $75m and could increase production from “late 2022.”Hurricane Energy’s share price could keep fallingThe total cost of these two projects would be about $135m. However, Hurricane Energy had net cash of $87m at the end of November. It’s also expected to report revenue of $173m for 2020, despite this year’s oil price crash.You might think the company would be able to start work on these projects without extra funding. Unfortunately, it can’t. In July 2017, Hurricane issued a $230m convertible bond that’s due for repayment in 2022. Convertible bonds are a form of loan that can be converted into new shares when certain conditions are met.The conversion price for these bonds is 32p per share. That’s a long way above today’s 3p price. Ordinarily, this would mean Hurricane would have to repay the bonds. However, the firm is looking at restructuring this debt to avoid a potential repayment crunch.One option is that part of the debt will be converted into new Hurricane Energy shares. Given Hurricane’s depressed share price, the company warns that any such restructuring could result in “dilution to existing shareholders.” This means existing shareholders would be left owning only a small part of the company, reducing the value of their stock.Maris is trying to find a way forward. But I’d expect that any new funding would have to be agreed by the company’s existing lenders. Without new investment, today’s warning is quite clear. Lancaster could be shut down. Hurricane Energy’s share price could fall to 0p. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Guaidó returns to Caracas: What next?

first_imgOriginally published in pagina12.com.ar; translation by Michael Otto.March 4, evening — Juan Guaidó arrived at Simón Bolívar International Airport in Caracas soon after noon in Venezuela. His passport stamped upon arrival, he was received by ambassadors from France, Germany, Portugal, Spain and Romania, among others, including his Venezuelan supporters. The diplomats’ presence was allegedly meant to guarantee that he would not be arrested, as was speculated might happen, since the Supreme Court of Justice had issued a ban on his leaving the country.Even as he entered the country, a reception was being organized in Caracas, in Las Mercedes, the usual space for [counter-revolutionary] government opposition activities in the wealthy area of eastern Caracas. The opposition also mobilized in other parts of the country, such as in the city of Maracaibo.U.S. threatened ‘severe measures’The self-proclaimed president had announced his return through social networks starting several days earlier. On Sunday night, March 3, he posted a message through his twitter account calling for the campaign not to falter and to ratify his decision to follow the roadmap. In an interview, he stated that if he were arrested, it would be a coup d’état. Spokespeople for the U.S. government had asserted on their part that they would undertake severe measures should anything happen to him.This tense situation was finally defused upon his arrival, which, unlike his departure, was through the airport and not by way of an illegal border road. The decision to let him enter in this way seems to have been motivated by the desire to avoid a scenario that would lead to further escalation within a framework of great instability.Guaidó drove from the airport to Las Mercedes where he spoke to those who were waiting for him and a large number of national and international media. His speech focused on several points. First, it was about the elements necessary to achieve the objectives of an end to usurpation [which is what Guaidó calls Maduro’s election], establishing a transitional government and free elections: the unity of all opposition forces, mobilization in the streets and international support.Second, he directed his message to the Bolivarian National Armed Force (FANB). He claimed that the chain of command was broken because he’s the president in charge and that is why they would not have stopped him when he arrived in the country. He also asserted that all but a small fraction of the troops support him.And third, he called for two actions: a meeting with public sector unions for Tuesday, March 5, after which he’ll make an announcement; and a nationwide mobilization for Saturday, March 9. “Of course we can and of course we shall be able … the time is now, and the change is now,” he said.During the event Guaidó displayed his passport and confirmed that he had entered legally. In other words, there is no existing arrest warrant against him; the violation of the prohibition to leave the country must be verified through an investigation by the Public Prosecutor’s Office. He could only have been apprehended at the moment of leaving the country or by being served with a warrant upon his return. He also has parliamentary immunity as president of the National Assembly.Guaidó withdrew from the square and the day ended tranquilly, as part of a carnival holiday where images of crowded beaches and activities for children in the city squares abound. Guaidó’s goal, to be triumphant because of international support and to have managed both to leave and especially to return, was achieved. The goal of the government, which was to avoid any kind of provocation, was also achieved. The balance of forces stayed the same.For the moment uncertainties and questions remain, like the ones we were asking some time ago. The main one is: How do you think you are going to advance toward your first objective of an end to “usurpation,” that is, forcing Nicolás Maduro to leave the Miraflores Palace while the FANB is still intact? The following days will give greater indications of what the roadmap will be, nationally, internationally, publicly and through plans being developed under the table, which are linked to the threat of possible military actions by irregular forces directed from the United States and Colombia.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Blessing of the Animals spreads awareness of animal advocacy groups

first_imgFacebook Lindsay Tomaini Linkedin ReddIt Facebook printStudents and Fort Worth residents were encouraged to stop by the Robert Carr Chapel Oct. 2 to have their pets blessed during TCU’s annual Blessing of the Animals.Not only was the event for blessing the animals, but it was also used as a platform to spread awareness for four organizations. Two TCU organizations, FrogPACK (People Advocating Creature Kindness) and TCU’s Rhino Initiative Club, attended the event. They were joined by two community organizations, Don’t Forget to Feed Me Pet Food Bank and Frogs And Cats Together (FACT). The organizations had stations set up around the blessing area. If students were interested in learning more, they could approach any organization and ask questions. “It’s one thing to recognize the importance of someone’s companion animal, but there are others we live with in the world, and they need help, they need attention, and so inviting these organizations that work on behalf of other animals reminds us of our duties towards these other creatures and that we can do more every day for them.”Dr. Dave AftandilianLea McCracken, TCU’s associate chaplain, appreciated the help from the two TCU organizations. “This helps get the word out to the TCU community, and I don’t feel like I could do this alone as the RSL (Religious and Spiritual Life) office,” McCracken said. “I want to be in partnership with our groups on TCU’s campus that are the ones doing the work daily to make sure they’re okay.” McCracken, TCU’s associate chaplain, was in charge of blessing the animals — a role she said she was “honored” to have. “I got to be the one to tell them that they are blessed by our God and that they are holy, pure and perfect,” McCracken said. Students gathered in front of McCracken with their animals to receive a blessing. If students could not physically bring their pet, they could show a picture and have it blessed the same way. Lea McCracken, associate chaplain, blesses an animal through a picture since the animal could not attend. Photo Courtesy: Lindsay TomainiHenley Fletcher, a senior studio art major, decided to attend the event after reading about it on her teacher’s syllabus. She presented pictures of her animals and they received a blessing. “I was really excited after I saw what the event was,” Fletcher said. “I think it’s a really interesting event.”The blessing of the animals started nearly 800 years ago by St. Francis, the patron saint of animals and the environment. St. Francis believed every living creature was blessed in God’s eyes.  TCU students pet a dog after it receives a blessing. Photo Courtesy: Lindsay Tomaini Blessing of the animals was discontinued a few years back; however, one professor’s passion revived the event. Dr. Dave Aftandilian, an associate professor and director of human-animal relationships, was the one who wanted to bring the event back to campus. “For people who live with an animal, they see the animal as part of their family, as a person just like any other member of the family,” Aftandilian said. “Just as you’d want your children to be blessed, you want your pets to be blessed and to have a good life.” + posts Twitter Linkedin Previous articleThe Skiff: Oct. 3, 2019Next article‘Out of control’ off-campus parties could prompt tickets, arrests Lindsay Tomaini RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Students create documentary on sex-trafficking in Fort Worth A guide to understanding collegiate rifle How a Fort Worth organization fights human trafficking Rifle honors seniors on Saturday ReddIt Twitter Lindsay Tomainihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/lindsay-tomaini/ Lindsay Tomainihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/lindsay-tomaini/ Lindsay Tomainihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/lindsay-tomaini/ Lindsay Tomainihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/lindsay-tomaini/ TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Students debut performances of drag personas as part of unique new course Frog Aides helps supports local businesses with on-campus ‘state fair’ eventlast_img read more
