  • Big Opportunities In Small-Cap Natural Gas (And Oil) Stocks [View article]
    I agree, EXXI has a lot of potential but they may be in trouble if oil doesn't go up in the near to mid-term. That is one of the risks of debt. I'm not sure when what the their loan maturity schedule is - worth checking out.

  • Ceragon Networks: 5 Reasons Why I Keep Accumulating This Low-Priced Tech Stock [View article]
    The business of catching falling knives is, at best. difficult. I know from personal experience.

    One criteria I use (although not perfect - nothing is) is insider buying. So far I don't see this in Ceragon so I would stay away. If the company really is on the verge of a big comeback I would expect to see some insiders taking positions.

  • 4 Predictions For The Fourth Quarter [View article]
    I agree with your predictions Bret. Time will tell of course but I think you are as close as anyone can get as to what actually will happen

    Since I have some GILD I especially hope you are right there.

  • 4 Small-Cap E&Ps Which May Now Be Bargains [View article]
    murjames - That's true; Tag has also fallen. It seems small-caps always take it on the chin when equity markets drop. The good news is small-cas usually outperform when they rise. Eventually, I feel both companies will appreciate substantially. It may take awhile. We will see.

  • Barron's Highlights Some Attractive Tech Stocks [View article]
    Bret

    Thanks for another great article - you are my top go-to-read author on SA.

    I too don't get Barron's, so I appreciate your mentioning some of their content periodically.

    Thesaurus says "sanquine" means happy; optimistic. Do you really mean "wary?"

  • The Internet Monopoly I Want To Own Forever [View article]
    Its hard to argue with the author's thesis. Google is the place to be for now and in the foreseeable future. I sometimes think they may be running the world eventually. Forever? Not so sure about that though.

  • A Few Net Lease REITs To Avoid [View article]
    I too would like to thank you Brad for pointing out some of the REITs to avoid. Most articles on SA (and elsewhere) are bullish, but we all know the other, riskier side is there waiting to deplete investor's money.

  • Natural Gas Prices: After Steep Decline, Where Do We Go From Here? [View article]
    The unusually cool summer (so far) in the eastern U.S. caught most by surprise. Electrical demand was therefore muted and power generating stations used less gas than anticipated. This has allowed storage levels to be built back up faster than expected.

  • Microsoft: Mr. Softie No More [View article]
    Owning both a Google Chromebook and a Windows 7 laptop, I much prefer the Chromebook. Why? It's faster, cheaper, less complicated, highly portable, and more focused on what I do. Who needs buggy, slow, virus/malware/bloatware prone, constantly in need of upgrades, personal computers when web based solutions work so well?

    Yes, MSFT is changing - they have to. Lagging in mobile, faltering in Windows, the company is now beginning to lose it's Microsoft Office dominance to Google and Apple/IBM. MSFT, like the captain on the Titanic, sees the iceberg ahead, but it may be too late to change course.

  • Synergy Resources Corporation: Has The Time Come To Sell This Highflier Junior And Move On? [View article]
    Thanks for another valuable article VD. I agree, SYRG seems like a great company - but now, having quadrupled in price over the last 2 years, is likely overvalued.

    I especially like your key metric comparisons. It helps readers separate herd mentality hype from factual fundamentals. By "digging" up companies which are undervalued you identify them before they quadruple in price. (Investors always like that!)

  • Emerging Market Dividend ETFs For Income And Growth [View article]
    Russian, Putin, and the Ukrainian crisis outcomes are definitely unknown at this point. I would probably hold out buying more DEM for now but things should settle down eventually.

    If Eastern Ukraine want to be part of Russia there is little we in the west can (or for that matter should) do about it. NATO involvement would be bad for everyone. I'm trusting it won't happen.

  • Zargon Oil And Gas Is In The Bargain Bin And Ready To Take Off [View article]
    VD,

    Thanks for a great article.

    You mention Argent a lot? I have some but wonder what the odds of that 19% dividend being cut? From past experience (Lightstream) these high dividends are often harbingers of future cuts.

    Maybe I'm better switching into Zargon
