After acquiring Geo Resources in 2012, Halcon went bankrupt twice (that's 2 times) in the proceeding ~5 years. I am certain the new administration will do much better.

Halcon filed for bankruptcy once. The shares got recommended. Halcon said, there would not be a second bankruptcy. The rig count dropped by 20 %. in one year. Things are getting better. Halcon promised to sell some properties. The second bankruptcy was a fraud. The old shareholders should get more than 9 % of the comoany.
