Keep in mind that SBOW was up almost 50% YTD prior to the announcement to raise a little equity to close an accretive acquisition that now looks even more accretive. Lots of investors tighten up their stop loss orders when they have big gains on a stock. BTW all of this year's gains have been since the end of May. Profit taking does happen from time-to-time when stocks gain 50% in three months.
Take a hard look at my forecast model. SilverBow should generate close to $33/share of operating cash flow in 2024 if WTI averages $90. It will be free cash flow positive and have a lot more running room in South Texas thanks to the Chesapeake Acquisition.
Is there any reason that this stock should be trading for less than 2X operating CFPS. If so, I sure don't see it.
