Eclipse Resources Stock Hits New 1-Yr Low – $1.17/Share

We typically don’t report on the ups and downs of the stock price for Marcellus/Utica companies, primarily because the per-share price goes up, then it goes, down, then it goes up again…You get the picture. However, today we’re reporting on the share price for Eclipse Resources (as of last Friday) because it hit a new one-year low of $1.17 per share, before closing at $1.28/share. Bumping around the bottom of the barrel. Why pick on Eclipse about their stock price? Because they’re in the middle of getting bought out and merged into Blue Ridge Mountain Resources, the former Magnum Hunter Resources (see Eclipse Resources Merging with Former Magnum Hunter). And because it’s a shame the stock price is that low, given that Eclipse has had a stellar record of drilling long laterals–currently the record-holder for longest onshore laterals in the world! (All drilled in the Ohio Utica Shale.) We hate to see a star performer like Eclipse under-perform financially. It doesn’t seem to balance on the scales of cosmic justice. What now seems obvious, in retrospect, is that Eclipse has been in a financial pickle for some time–hence their sale to Blue Ridge Mountain…
