  1. Assess the overall financial health of your organization. What are good and bad signs, if any, in your assessment? Measures of financial health may include sales and/or profit increases or decreases, if employees are being hired or laid off, major new orders being placed or orders being cancelled. These are some but not all measures that could be looked at, but if you are using an unconventional organization, you may have to get a little creative here.
  2. To what extent is your organization's financial health affected by fiscal and monetary policy? Please give at least one specific example.

COG Cabot Oil & Gas Energy


Running Head: PRODUCTION, UNEMPLOYMENT, AND INFLATION MODULE 1: SLP Trident University

Module 1 SLP

 

Course Number: ECO202

 

Dr. Thomas Kernodle

 

13 December 2015 PRODUCTION, UNEMPLOYMENT, AND INFLATION 2 I chose COG Cabot Oil & Gas Energy. It was ?incorporated on December 14, 1989, as an

 

independent oil and gas company engaged in the development, exploitation and exploration of

 

oil and gas properties?. The Company has primarily focused on two plays: the Marcellus Shale in

 

northeast Pennsylvania and Eagle Ford Shale in south Texas.

 

A reason I chose this company is because of recent and historical price fluctuations in the oil

 

market. The relation between shale and oil as substitutes in the space of energy sources makes

 

me interested in the macroeconomic impact on this company. The nature of energy requirements

 

is such that the need for energy resources is almost unlimited. As a result, it is interesting to

 

understand how macro environment in the US as well as the world, especially in oil producing

 

nations could impact at a firm level.

 

3 indicators that this firm must take into account; Price of crude oil- also called Brent oil. ?Brent Blend is a combination of crude oil from

 

15 different oil fields in the North Sea, primarily refined in Northwest Europe, and is the

 

major benchmark for other crude oils in Europe or Africa?. Most prices of different types

 

of oil are quoted in terms of Brent crude price. It is expected that as Brent price declines,

 

demand for shale would reduce, as they are substitutes of each other. A GDP movement is another indicator of demand for energy sources. A well performing

 

economy will need more energy translating into greater demand for shale oil. GDP trends

 

are also mirrored in unemployment data, retail sales data and weather forecasts. These

 

forecasts are effective indicators for seasonal demand for energy sources. An unusually

 

severe winter would increase demand for energy for heating purposes. PRODUCTION, UNEMPLOYMENT, AND INFLATION 3 Housing starts is another vital indicator that tells the firm about the future of the economy

 

and the place for new demand for energy that accompanies economic changes. Greater no

 

of houses implies positive consumer sentiment. This will translate into higher demand for

 

infrastructure and all those industries that feed into housing. PMI is an indicator of economic health of manufacturing sectors specifically. PMI

 

provides ?an advance indication of what is really happening in the private sector economy

 

by tracking variables such as output, new orders, stock levels, employment and prices

 

across the manufacturing, construction, retail and service sectors?.

 

COG Cabot Oil & Gas Energy must be focused on indicators that reveal the level of

 

demand in the future, and the production/price levels of energy sources that can substitute

 

for shale oil. Future demand is best forecast with GDP figures as well as indicators that

 

tell us about consumer and producer expectations of the future.

 

It must also consider price movements of crude oil, which is its traditional substitute.

 

Though we have alternatives like solar energy, wind energy and even nuclear energy, the

 

towering role of oil cant be ignored. In fact there are definite patterns in the movements

 

of the dollar, gold prices and oil prices. These patterns are used to predict future oil

 

prices, which determine the scope of alternative energy sources like shale oil. OPEC

 

Member Countries produce about 43 per cent of the world's crude oil and 19 percent of

 

its natural gas. However, OPEC's crude oil exports represent about 60 per cent of the

 

crude oil traded internationally. Therefore, OPEC can have a strong influence on the oil

 

market, especially if it decides to reduce or increase its level of production and this makes

 

the indicator for OPEC prices critical to COG. PRODUCTION, UNEMPLOYMENT, AND INFLATION REFERENCES
