HK caught a nice little upgrade this morning. Seems like a positive sign moving closer to earnings on Aug 8th. Lets hope HK blows earnings away! Maybe it would be wise to hold on the the calls!

I waited and sold my Jan '08 $15 calls @ $2.15. Good for a 26.5% gain! I was going to hold out but I was robbed of profits on the CAT options! As Cramer says, bulls make money, bears make money and hogs get slaughtered. I'm still holding my Jan '08 $80 CAT calls, luckily they are climbing back up to my entry @ $6.60. Thanks BOTD ;-)

26% gain! hell yeah!

more about the HK upgrade:

NEW YORK - Shares of Petrohawk Energy Corp. rose Monday, as an analyst said the independent energy company's recent decisions to sell off noncore assets have improved the company's asset base and better prepared the company to be sold.

In midday trading, Petrohawk shares rose 75 cents, or 5.3 percent, to $14.84, after peaking at $15 earlier in the day.

Last week, Petrohawk announced plans to sell its Gulf Coast unit to focus on natural gas prospects in Arkansas and Louisiana. The sale process is expected to start in the third quarter.

The company also said at the time it was buying 32,500 acres in Arkansas and actively looking to purchase more natural gas prospects. The acquisition is expected to close in the third quarter.

In Louisiana, Petrohawk said it bought additional interest in more than 13,000 acres and continues to look into acquiring additional acreage and interests in the fields.

JPMorgan analyst Brian Kuzma upgraded Petrohawk to "Overweight" from "Neutral," saying that while the company has significantly underperformed its sector since announcing the moves, the decisions improved its asset base and better prepared the company for a potential sale.

"The recent acreage acquisitions in its core plays have made Petrohawk capable of growing production and reserves by 20 percent plus for several years while remaining within cash flows," Kuzma wrote in a note to investors. "Yet, the stock price is implying below-average multiples for the pro forma company."

Kuzma added that the large acreage position the company acquired in the Fayetteville Shale and around its core Cotton Valley properties should be productive and eventually make Petrohawk a more attractive acquisition target.

The analyst added that if the company experiences continued success at its Terryville and Fayetteville properties, it could be acquired for management's target price of about $20 per share in the next 12 months.
