  • Consumer Confidence decline in July at 90.9 [View news story]
    It's a reflection of the fear of not knowing what will happen with Greece, from before we found out what would happen with Greece.

  • Bakken Update: Mega-Fracs Are The Reason U.S. Oil Production Remains High In A Low-Price Environment [View article]
    Another excellent article, Michael, thank you. What was your reaction to Sanchez (SN) saying they were drilling and completing wells for under $4.5M per well?

  • How I Like To Play Earnings [View instapost]
    I think some oil names have moved from the semi-safe category to the risky category with this drop in the price of oil.

  • BreitBurn Energy Partners: Why Are The Units Sinking? [View article]
    You commenters above are making good points about the value of the company taking a 50% hit when reserves become fully based on these new lower oil prices, but the stock price for BBEP has already dropped 83%! So.... already priced in?

  • How I Like To Play Earnings [View instapost]
    I don't buy pre-mkt and I ignore the ones that don't have both revenue and earnings estimates. Also need to be careful of the ones that only have one estimate from one analyst, better to play the ones that are more widely followed but also a bit under the radar. Good luck.

    They'll afford one just fine if they tripled their savings in the stock market over the past year.

  • Ventas Has Gotten Way Too Cheap With 30% Upside On Strong Fundamentals [View article]
    Excellent article, Dane. I am very bullish on VTR at these prices (low 60s) and you wrote up my thoughts on the name far better than I could have. Great job.

  • Time To Buy Technology Focused BDCs? [View article]
    I agree with you that all 3 of these BDCs are attractively priced right now, although I prefer HTGC which I think is an absolute steal at these levels. Keep up the good work and I will give TPVG a further look.

  • Atlas Resource Partners - The Market Is Pricing In A Distribution Cut [View article]
    The bear argument in this article is extremely weak. ARP can easily cover the current distribution into 2016, which the author even admits if they don't pay down debt. And why would they pay down debt that's not due for 6 years in a time of oil market turmoil? The suggestion that they need to is ludicrous. I could name 50 oil and gas producers that wish their earliest debt due date was in 2021. That's a bull argument! I could also name 50 oil and gas producers who wish they'd hedged as heavily as ARP did when oil and gas prices were higher. ARP's hedge book is a thing of beauty.

    Furthermore, the chart in the article showing underperformance vs peers is complete nonsense. Yes it underperformed from January to March, a period where the distribution was TWICE as high as it is now, where everyone suspected they would cut, and ending with the actual cut. ARP hasn't underperformed its peer group at all since March, or since May when they announced the equity issuance. You can clearly see in the chart that they all fell in the May-June period, and by similar amounts.

    ARP is a gift under $7 and won't stay there for long.

  • I'm Not Buying The Panic, This 9% MLP Yield Is Secure [View article]
    Over the past 3 years:
    ARLP $27 ---> $30
    WLT $64 ---> 50 cents
    BTU $29 ---> $3
    ANR $16 ---> 60 cents
    ACI $9 ---> 60 cents

    Does ARLP still look undervalued after its recent "crash"?
