Ben Dickey: Chesapeake Better Off Without McClendon

By Ben Dickey

U.S natural gas producer Chesapeake Energy Corp. ( CHK) replaced its top executive last month amid conflict-of-interest questions, while announcing results that exceeded analysts’ expectations as fuel prices rallied on increased demand. The company ousted Chief Executive Officer Aubrey McClendon on April 1 after an investor revolt and boardroom reshuffling did not to prop up the stock.

The departure of McClendon is a big positive for the company, Covestor Manager Ben Dickey told Bloomberg News: “The biggest thing they got going for them is they got rid” of McClendon,  Dickey, chief investment officer at BSG&L Financial Services LLC in Houston, said in an interview before the results were announced. “If gas prices continue coming back, that’ll also be good for them.” McClendon was replaced as CEO by Chief Operating Officer Steven Dixon.

Ben Dickey does not currently hold CHK in his  Covestor portfolios.
