Not much has changed technically since we first looked at Enterprise Group Inc. (E:TSX.V) in June a couple of months ago. However, its technical condition has continued to improve steadily as it has moved towards completion of the bullish Ascending Triangle shown on its latest one-year chart, and its 200-day moving average has continued to catch up with the price.
The chart shows the picture of stock in a steady uptrend that has stopped for a rest from its February highs to allow its moving averages to catch up. Meanwhile, the fundamental circumstances of the company are improving dramatically with it swinging from loss to profit due in particular to the uniquely attractive and compelling services offered by its wholly owned subsidiary Evolution Power Projects Inc., which we will look at briefly lower down the page.
On the one-year chart, we can immediately see how Enterprise Group is continuing to march higher in a steady uptrend and only paused to consolidate when the broad market tanked in the Spring. It has been marking time for more than six months now since early February, which has allowed it to “recharge its batteries” for the next upleg that will probably be triggered by the next release of results which is expected soon, probably within the next several weeks.
Technically an upside breakout soon is suggested by the increasing bunching of the price and its bullishly aligned moving averages and the closing up of the bullish Ascending Triangle.
The 12-year chart, of course, looks much the same as when we first looked at it and is interesting because it shows that the price is slowly being shepherded towards a major breakout by a giant Saucer base pattern, and it is worth noting that with 47 million shares in issue, the price is not being held in restraint due to stock dilution and thus it could really take off once it succeeds in breaking out of this giant base.
The President of the company is understood to own 12 million shares, meaning that there are this many less shares in the float.
Now we come to the big reason that the company is doing so well fundamentally, not covered in the first article on it, which explains why the prospects for its stock are so bright.
One of the biggest headaches for oil and gas explorers in the northern wastes of Canada and elsewhere is trucking in vast quantities of diesel fuel, often over vast distances, to power on-site generators. This is becoming increasingly expensive and is definitely not “green” as the on-site generators create a lot of pollution and noise.
Enter Evolution Power Projects Inc. with its powerful generators that use Natural Gas. At a time when diesel has become much more expensive with possible problems of availability in the future, this has massive advantages for oil and gas explorers, for it is no longer necessary to truck in thousands of liters of diesel per day, as just one Evolution Power Projects’ unit has the ability to replace up to 15 diesel generators and in addition, the Natural Gas to power the Evolution Power Projects’ unit is often produced on-site as a consequence of the drilling, resulting in even greater savings.
Rentals of the units are apparently rocketing as the idea catches on, and the massive turnaround in the fortunes of Enterprise Group, largely it is thought as a result of the ballooning rentals of the Evolution Power Projects’ Natural Gas power generating units, is evident when we compare the Enterprise Group loss in 2021 to its sizeable earnings during the 1st quarter of this year.
Other positive factors that we should take into consideration include the fact that even at liquidation prices, the company’s assets, which are appraised twice a year, are worth CA$0.72 a share, which is much more than the current share price.
Also, a big LNG (Liquified Natural Gas) port facility is being built off the coast of British Columbia that should come in really handy for a considerable number of Enterprise Group’s customers.
It looks likely then that the improvement in Enterprise Groups' earnings will continue and become evident with the next set of results due to be posted soon, that are expected to generate an upside breakout, and we, therefore, stay long, and this is a good point to buy or add to positions.
