NEW BEARISH Plays
Chesapeake Granite Wash Trust - CHKR - close: 27.41 change: -0.75
Stop Loss: 28.70
Current Gain/Loss: unopened
Time Frame: 1 to 3 weeks
New Positions: Yes, see below
Why We Like It:
CHKR is a Delaware statutory trust formed by Chesapeake Energy Corporation (CHK) to own certain royalty interests in oil and natural gas wells in Washita County, Oklahoma producing from the Colony Granite Wash Play within the broader Granite Wash formation of the Anadarko Basin. Essentially the trust is a passive entity with revenues coming from horizontal wells in the Colony Granite Wash formation.
This security has been popular with the dividend crowd because CHKR has a +10% yield. Unfortunately it looks like the stock has topped and is due for a correction.
I suspect this will be a short-term trade. We want to get in and get out after capturing a couple of points. There are probably plenty of investors looking to buy this stock on a pullback.
We want to keep our position size small. I am suggesting bearish positions at the open tomorrow with a stop loss at $28.70. Our target is $25.25.
Suggested Position: short CHKR @ (the open)
