There is a lot of ground that High Plains Gas needs to cover in order for investors to have a clearer picture as to what today’s announcement really means for HPGS stock. According to their last Q filing for the 9 months ended September 30, 2012, revenues had dipped to $2,143,458, a -78.97% decline from the $10,191,744 they booked during the same period in 2011.
However, the Company did just acquire approximately 1400 coalbed methane wells from Luca Technologies, Inc. and the member interest in Patriot Energy Resources LLC and Patriot Energy Gathering LLC which is a clear sign that High Plains Gas is moving ahead despite being late filers with their financial statements. It’s hard to imagine that HPGS shares were trading well above $1 back in 2011 before falling well below the 0.05 level 2 years ago, never to recover.
Based on the $29,941,536 in liabilities the Company had on their books back on September 30, 2012 and the decline in both working capital and revenues, today’s announcement should surely bring some bargain shoppers towards HPGS stock. Considering how the initial spike today retracted quickly enough to get back to 0.007, a return to the 2’s warrants more than enough reason why HPGS shares should be monitored for the duration of the week.

The news announcement today rightly placed HPGS on the list of penny stocks to watch heading into June. Seeing as how a return to above 0.01 takes little effort, a solid run on some updated financials and reports of natural gas sales could easily send HPGS to the next level and throw some good coin into the pockets of those longing it.
