  • Commodities Today: Potential Takeover Targets In The Energy Sector [View article]
    It really all depends on what the next wave of acquirers require for their portfolios. If looking at the various plays, I think that the Utica has a lot of potential for consolidation - especially in the dry gas window where there are a lot of smaller players. The TMS could also be of interest, but a lot of work needs to be done there to lower costs and better define the play.

  • Commodities Today: Big Fertilizer Merger And Acquisition Deal, And A Russian Bankruptcy Looming [View article]
    We have no deal right now so no details to go on at this time, but there is no reason to believe that TNH would not remain an MLP post merger.

    You might be right, it has basically traded sideways since but it rarely pays to chase on the story/news.

    Solar is going to need to get much more efficient or else we will be living beneath a layer of solar panels! Solar & wind have a place in an energy mix, but so too will fossil fuels and nuclear.

    Fair enough! The key now is how big the moat is to their enterprise/corporate business is.

    Please see above, AAPL stole - quite quickly in fact - the consumer high-end business from BBRY. So no longer is there a correlation. The point is that if MSFT wants to stay relevant then they may have to build their own ecosystem or at the very least ensure that attractive options exist for users. Why would anyone think that BBRY was a part of AAPL?!?!

    The point was that BBRY essentially watched their entire consumer business disappear in a very short period of time due to their inability to have an ecosystem which was attractive to that segment of the market. Microsoft has taken note of that as they continue to try to make their Windows phone attractive in the current market. Trying to point out that Microsoft may have learned from others' mistakes in the cellular device market as well as their own success in the game console market.

    I see no reason at all why you would not understand this unless of course you were a BBRY long.

    GILD is a great company and just as important it is a great stock. It has been a great one to trade, but not included in the article because it was not a part of the original call on an individual basis (but definitely via the ETFs).

    Uncle Pie, just remember to read the filings and documents, because sometimes your broker will get the tax consequences incorrect (and not in your favor). If you can supply the documents with the opinions from the company (which comes from their tax lawyers and accountants) they will correct your 1099. Just an FYI for investors with foreign holdings.
