Below please find a table outlining a discounted cash flow forecast for CHKAQ, in which we model out valuation assuming a variety of terminal growth rates. To summarize, we found that Chesapeake Energy Corp ranked in the 19th percentile in terms of potential gain offered. We should note, though, that the most conservative analysis suggests this stock will yield negative results -- and thus may be a potential short opportunity. As for the metrics that stood out in our discounted cash flow analysis of Chesapeake Energy Corp, consider:

  • The company's balance sheet shows it gets 0% of its capital from equity, and 100% of its capital from debt. Notably, its equity weight is greater than merely 0.57% of US equities in the Energy sector yielding a positive free cash flow.
  • Its compound free cash flow growth rate, as measured over the past 5.52 years, is -0.49% -- higher than merely 2.65% of stocks in our DCF forecasting set.
  • Chesapeake Energy Corp's interest coverage rate -- a measure of gross earnings relative to interest payments -- comes in at -20.73. This coverage rate is greater than that of only 5.2% of stocks we're observing for the purpose of forecasting via discounted cash flows.

PUMP, HFC, TGA, FTI, and RDS.A can be thought of as valuation peers to CHKAQ, in the sense that they are in the Energy sector and have a similar price forecast based on DCF valuation.

Chesapeake Approved to Exit Bankruptcy, Cut $7 Billion in Debt

(Bloomberg) -- Chesapeake Energy Corp. won court approval for a reorganization plan that slashes about $7 billion in debt in exchange for handing over ownership to its senior lenders, including Franklin Resources Inc.The decision by U.S. Bankruptcy Judge David Jones caps a years-long effort to repair the company’s finances, which became bloated after repeated borrowing to fuel its expansion.The final push came over the objection of unsecured bondholders and other lower-ranking creditors, who claim senior lenders were getting Chesapeake at a discount just six months after they refinanced their debt.Jones rejected those complaints along with a last-minute, competing reorganization proposal offered by Jefferies Financial Group Inc., Owl Creek Asset Management and several other investment f...

Investors Are Running Out of Time to Sell Chesapeake Energy Stock

When we look back on 2020, one of the year’s defining features will be the unprecedented interest in the stocks of bankrupted companies. Normally, when a company goes bust, its stock price goes to almost zero immediately and that’s that. This year, however, traders have stuck with firms in bankruptcy far longer than normal. Chesapeake Energy (OTCMKTS:CHKAQ) stock is one example of that trend. Source: Casimiro PT / Chesapeake filed for bankruptcy back in June of this year, ending its long struggle to restructure as much as $10 billion of debt by less dramatic means. However, the one-two punch of plunging oil prices and the novel coronavirus was too much for the embattled firm to withstand. Chesapeake Energy Stock Is Heading to Zero Normally, it’s a bit hyperbolic when...

Post-Bankruptcy, Whiting Petroleum an Intriguing Choice for Oil Bulls
