  • Private-equity squeezed by new bank regulations [View news story]
    I'm sure it has as much to do with the markets being at all time highs and valuations looking stretched as it has to do with a lack of bank loans. The PE firms have tens of billions in dry powder, if they see a deal they like they have the capital to get it done.

  • FRBNY: Fannie and Freddie have not yet repaid bailout [View news story]
    Good luck with that. I'm going to guess the lawyers make more than the shareholders recover.

  • FRBNY: Fannie and Freddie have not yet repaid bailout [View news story]
    The equity is worthless - when was the last time the government gave back a source of revenue? Especially this administration.

  • A Completely Transformed mCig May Be The Sleeping Giant Of The Marijuana Sector [View article]
    Everything makes sense to me except the HVAC and construction angle. Thats a low margin business. I'm slightly concerned that they're trying to be everything to everyone. But its a lotta ticket, so we shall see. Good write up

  • Whiting Petroleum opens -27% after trading halt [View news story]
    Takeover news and successful drug data are examples of halts and the stock opening higher.

  • Freeport-McMoRan declares $0.05 dividend [View news story]
    If it makes you feel any better, they settled the lawsuit over conflicts of interest over that $9 billion deal for $137.5 million.... Its unreal what we let bad managers get away with in this country.

  • Chesapeake Energy cuts another $500M from 2015 capex [View news story]
    You think CHK's management, which just sold its Utica assets, is going to buy a Utica focused company? Seems unlikely.

    MHR has 32k boe/d. I comment on MHR because I own MHR. I dont buy oil and gas stocks based on BV, I buy based on assets in the ground.

  • Whiting Petroleum to launch offerings for 35M shares, $1B in senior notes [View news story]
    So much for looking for a buyer. This is going to get crushed as the buyout premium evaporates and it reacts to the glut of new shares.

    Still not sure how they need $3.5 billion to keep production flat, but the equity is valued at $9 billion. Why own it with barely any growth?

  • North Dakota Abandoned Well Law: Bakken Fracklog Killer? [View instapost]
    Yea just without the tickers its hard for them to push it out and have it get picked up. I'm almost sure putting a table with the number of wells that Continental, Whitting, and maybe 2 or 3 others had waiting, and then saying that the article relates to those tickers would make them more likely to publish. Either way good luck.

  • North Dakota Abandoned Well Law: Bakken Fracklog Killer? [View instapost]
    You should add in a table with a few companies that have large backlogs in the state and resubmit - that may push SA to publish it. Either way, pretty good info, nice job.

  • Oil spikes, dollar plummets - what gives? [View news story]
    Computers hard at work this morning, its probably traders in NYC who are trying to unwind positions early in anticipation of leaving early because of the snow.
