Endeavour International (END). This small-cap oil and gas stock explores and develops energy fields in the United States and United Kingdom. Currently, Endeavour is sitting on about 14 million barrels of oil equivalent. The last two months have not been kind to the stock, however, with shares slumping about 34% since May 1. The company missed Wall Street estimates in two of its last four earnings reports, and that does not bode well for END stock as we approach another earnings season.
DHT Holdings (DHT). This oil transporter operates a fleet of double hull tankers, complete with nine vessels. DHT's fleet operates primarily in international waters, and possesses a combined carrying weight of over 1.6 million deadweight tons. While DHT's, stock is up since January, it has seen large drops since May, and is down 14.2% in the past two months. DHT's earnings were also down 28.6% from last quarter's estimates.
North European Oil Royalty Trust (NRT). The North European Oil Royalty Trust receives royalties from unit owners on the sale of well gas, oil well gas, crude oil, distillate and sulfur in Germany. NRT has declined steadily over the past two months, and is down 11.6% during that time. Down 15.1% overall in 2010, NRT's stock is anything but stable entering a new earnings season.
Alon USA Energy (ALJ). Operating in California, Texas, Oregon and Louisiana, Alon is an independent refiner and marketer of petroleum products. Its products include gasoline, diesel fuel, jet fuel, petrochemicals, petrochemical feedstocks and asphalt, among others. Since May 3, Alon's stock has fallen 17.5 %, while also missing Wall Street earnings estimates two of the last four quarters.General Maritime (GMR). This New York based company specializes in the international transportation of crude oil and refined petroleum products. With a fleet of 31 vessels, GMR works with some big-name oil companies including ExxonMobil (XOM), Lukoil (LUK), Hess (HES) and Chevron (CVX). The fleet of double-hulled vessels has an overall carrying capacity of 3.9 million deadweight tons. Over the past two months, GMR's stock has fallen sharply, with a decline of 31.8%. Likewise, the oil transporter's earnings reports have fallen well below Wall Street estimates each of the last four quarters, making GMR's outlook bleak. As of this writing, Louis Navellier did not own a position in any of the stocks named here.
