The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst Jason Moser and advisor Charly Travers discuss topics across the investing world.

Last month in their Buy, Sell, Hold series, Jason rated Chesapeake Energy a sell due to concerns about management, while Charly pointed out that the company does have a premier asset base, which makes the stock worth revisiting if the price were to drop. With the stock down over 30% in recent weeks, it's time to see if Chesapeake's massive oil and gas reserves can overcome Jason's reservations about CEO Aubrey McClendon.
