Shares of the recently IPOed Excelerate Energy Inc (NYSE: EE) are down more than 10% from their high, which the famed investor Jim Cramer dubs a classic buy the dip opportunity.
Cramer’s positive view is based on strong demand
Cramer sees strong demand for the Texas-headquartered company that raised $441 million from its upsized IPO earlier this month. This Friday on Mad Money, he said:
The world desperately needs LNG infrastructure. We have massive quantity of LNG in the U.S., and other places like Australia and Middle East. But the only way to transport it is very expensive. EE has floating ship-based LNG terminals that can sail to where they’re needed.
With EBITDA margin at 29.5% and the stock trading back at its IPO price (roughly), he sees Excelerate a great pick for investors interested in playing the rise of LNG.
Why else does Cramer like Excelerate Energy?
Excelerate Energy is committed to expanding its footprint in natural gas transportation, which will also serve as a catalyst for the stock price, added the Mad Money host.
Part of the idea is that they can set up shop in areas that lack developed energy infrastructure then dominate those markets. Plus, by sticking their terminals on huge ships, they can often avoid many of the regulatory hassles that make it so difficult to build LNG infrastructure.
Last week, Excelerate secured a $350 million revolving credit facility. Billionaire George Kaiser owns 77% of the NYSE-listed company at present.
