Announcement coming soon. Mr Pardis confirmed Board is gonig outside the Company to fill this position.Was told we could expect announcement soon, and most likely before reserves report in February. Penn West has long lived assets and a great track record of replacing production. These two itemes could propel the price very quickly , like RIM did. Investors who were buying into the pessimism of RIm missed the easy double and we could see a repeat here. Bashing and analyst downgrades are for shaking weak hands and codespeak for ACCUMULATION TIME.
