Long Position on EMES @ $11.40 on 7/12/2016 (Momentum)

Bullish Cup & Handle on EMESEmerge Energy Services LP (EMES) acquires, owns, operates, and develops a portfolio of energy service assets in the United States.

The company operated in two segments, Sand and Fuel.

The Sand segment is involved in the production and sale of various grades of industrial sand primarily used in the extraction of oil and natural gas, as well as in the production of building products and foundry materials.

The Fuel segment operates two terminals and two transmix processing facilities located in the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas area, as well as in Birmingham, Alabama. This segment also engages in the sale of wholesale petroleum products; provision of third-party terminaling services; blending of renewable fuels into petroleum products; manufacture of biodiesel; and provision of reclamation services, such as tank cleaning services, as well as other complementary products and services.

Emerge Energy Services GP, LLC operates as a general partner of the company.

Shares of this company have formed a bullish "cup and handle" after the firm sold its Fuel operations to Sunoco for $178.5 million on June 23rd. Once the transaction closes, it allows the firm to shore up its balance sheet and become a pure frac-sand play. We expect higher share prices for this stock. There is also a weak market rumor that the fuel business was sold so EMES can sell itself to a larger player!
