On August 24th 2-17, PMO published a half year report, where it revealed record production of 82.1 kboepd, an increase of 34.5% on the prior period. In addition, PMO reported cash flows from operations of $292m, up 168% on the prior period, and confirmed completion of a comprehensive refinancing programme. Looking forward PMO cited the potential of the new BW Catcher development, and on October 24thconfirmed that delivery of first oil remains on schedule for the end of 2017. PMO also raised a further $200m from the sale of the Wytch Farm field to Verus Petroleum, confirming CEO Tony Durrant’s statement that PMO is “ahead of plans to restore financial strength” and is “progressing a number of exciting projects for future growth.”

VectorVest first published a note on PMO in March this year, where we highlighted how debt restructuring worries had weighed heavily on the share price. The solid progress delivered since our March note underscores the opportunity on offer, although the PMO RS (Relative Safety) metric scores a poor 0.82 on a scale of 0.00 to 2.00. However, the RT (Relative Timing) metric, a fast, smart and accurate indicator of a stock’s price trend sees PMO score 1.61, which is excellent on a scale of 0.00 to 2.00, and this is backed up by an excellent GRT (Earnings Growth Rate) rating of 34%. GRT reflects a company’s 1-3 year forecasted earnings growth rate in % per year. VectorVest values PMO at 100p per share, meaning that despite the recent recovery to 76p, the stock remains undervalued.

The chart of PMO.L is shown above. The price action is in candlestick format while the VectorVest calculated valuation of PMO.L is shown by the green line study above the price. The share is on a BUY recommendation on VectorVest with the last BUY signals occurring at the start of September 2017. Of note to technical analysts is the completed “inverted head and shoulders reversal pattern”. This pattern has a strong base since March 2017 and is technically very positive for the share.

Summary: PMO is scheduled to deliver a further trading update in late November. As in our previous note, we have highlighted PMO as an opportunity to aggressive traders, but unlike our previous note, the RT (Relative Timing), (GRT) Earnings Growth and Valuation all point to a sharp improvement in trading, cashflow and outlook. With the financial restructuring complete, PMO is now flagged as a Buy on the VectorVest platform, although cautious traders may want to wait until after the trading update before making a move.
