Any thoughts on TBE ? High yield, high risk ?

Hey Joe,

Thanks for the assignment. This will be the fourth time since August of 2012 that I investigate the details that surround Twin Butte Energy Ltd. (TBE TSX). The last analysis was administered on February 24, 2014 on a request from Grant. The stock was trading for $2.29 and offered a dividend yield of 8.38%. Grant wanted to know if the dividend was sustainable. The work carried out indicated that TBE was advancing in a gentle uptrend with support along the uptrend line and the 50-day moving average. The golden cross that surfaced in November of 2013 also added to the evaluation and resulted in a buy recommendation. In retrospect that was the right call. TBE hit a 52-week high of $2.50 in April of 2014 for a 9.17% capital gain in two month.

Another assessment of the charts will provide greater depth to my thoughts.

 

 

TBE

The three- year chart indicates that the uptrend line hasn’t been breached and support along the 50-day moving average has been maintained. What is also evident is that TBE is still producing higher highs and higher lows. In addition the gentle up channel described in the February 2014 analysis is still in play despite the pullback from the 52-week high of $2.50. Currently the stock offers a dividend yield of 8.17%

The six-month chart describes the retreat from the 52-week high in April. At the same time the MACD and the RSI both signalled that selling pressure was mounting which could see the stock retest support along the uptrend line and the 50-day moving average. The question at hand is does TBE have enough in it to punch through resistance at $2.50? The next flex point will come on the release of Q1 results in May.

Your concern regarding the risk reward equation for this stock is valid. The sanctity of a dividend is always a concern but again a survey of comments by money mangers catalogued on  http://www.stockchase.com/ seem to suggest that the dividend is secure at this time.

At this juncture TBE is hold until we see if we get a bounce off the uptrend line and the 50-day moving average.

Make it a profitable day and happy capitalism!
