CNX Resources (CNX): Longleaf Loves This Natural Gas Company

Longleaf Partners Fund, a suite of mutual funds and UCITS funds managed by Southeastern Asset Management, discussed CNX Resources Corp. (NYSE: CNX) in its most recent letter to investors. CNX, a Pittsburgh-based natural gas company, did not perform well on the share market in 2018. Let’s take a look at the fund’s comments on CNX:

CNX (-22%, -1.35%, -20%, -1.30%), the Appalachian natural gas company, detracted for the year. The stock declined after reporting an 8.5% increase in capital expenditure guidance during the second quarter.

Additionally, nearly all energy stocks had a sharp selloff following the fourth quarter’s commodity price volatility. CEO Nick DeIuliis took advantage of the dislocation by repurchasing over 16% of CNX’s outstanding shares in the 12 months ended in October. Our appraisal increased with the company’s growth in cash flow.

In June, CNX sold its Ohio Utica acreage for a good price. The company has other non-core assets to monetize in coming years. Most production is hedged several years out, helping to insulate the business’s value from declines in the gas strip. The stock trades at below half of our appraisal.
