Chesapeake Energy was downgraded from “sell” to “strong sell” and slapped with a $0 price target in a Tuesday morning analyst note issued by CFRA Research’s Paige Meyer.
The note comes following a collapse in energy prices that saw oil prices briefly turn negative in April.
Meyer said that the Oklahoma City-based energy company will likely file for bankruptcy in 2020, as it has a negative tangible net worth due to its recent $8.4 billion impairment on a slew of different energy assets.
