Chesapeake liquidity better but debt still too high, says UBS

UBS analyst William Featherston previewed the Chesapeake analyst day and said he expects management to shift from its defensive strategy over the last two years to a more offensive one by targeting annual volume growth to resume in 2018. The analyst said the company's liquidity position has improved, but the debt level still remains too high. Featherston maintained his Sell rating and $4.50 price target on Chesapeake shares.
