LRT Capital made the following comment about Texas Pacific Land Corporation (NYSE:TPL) in its October investor letter:

“Longtime readers will know that we rarely invest in resource companies. However, there are periods in the market when commodity-based companies far outperform the broad indices. So we’ve been looking for a balance in the portfolio for a long time – a competitive company in the commodities space, we’re convinced of that Texas Pacific Land Corporation (NYSE:TPL), meets this criterion. Founded from assets of formerly bankrupt railroads, TPL controls the largest tract of land in the Permian Basin — the center of the US shale oil industry. The Company has two primary sources of revenue: 1) royalties from oil and gas produced on its properties – essentially a no-cost option to purchase future oil prices and production; and 2) a water company that develops water resources and sells services to the fracking industry. We see TPL as an effective way to diversify the portfolio into a commodity-exposed company with a history of smart capital allocation and low risk of financial distress during periods of low oil prices. The company has no debt and $281 million in cash. The company uses most of its cash flows to pay dividends and buy back stock.”
