We follow up last week’s feature with another oil patch name. Today, however, we look at a contrarian situation. Petrus Resources Ltd. PRQ-T is down 18.9 per cent over the past three months as of Oct. 4. Petrus produced 10,492 barrels of oil equivalent per day (30.1-per-cent liquids) in the second quarter. When revising guidance in August, Petrus indicated it was positioned to begin a return of capital to shareholders through dividends and share buy-backs in the fourth quarter. Meanwhile, since Sept. 7, CEO Kenneth Gray has bought 45,000 common shares at an average price of $1.39.
