  • Danger: Titan Machinery Bond Hits All-Time Low [View article]
    Thank you. Just bought 1500 shares at 12.50. I am pretty much guaranteed to make money, just a question of how much. For a seeking alpha hit job you sure don't make too many insightful arguments, but just point to basic facts that are already PUBLICLY KNOWN. But you did scare a few sheep into panic selling, so for that, I thank you.

  • Is Intrepid Potash Cheap Enough? [View article]
    Pot is a great buy here, and is likely the 'safest bet'. IPI has more upside, as being a 'higher cost' producer the shorts and panic stricken public has thrown this baby out with the bathwater. There are still lots of unknowns as far as future pricing and the cartels will shake out, but IPI has certainly been shot first, and questions will be asked later.

    Buy IPI below $12 while you can, it will be back at $15+ in a months time.

  • Linn Energy: Many Ponzi-Like MLP Blow-Ups To Follow [View article]

    "You don't need to be a genius to have figured out that LINE was a stock that was overvalued and that its owners were looking for trouble."

    Hard to believe this can be anything but Monday Morning Quarterbacking at its finest. Where was your article on how obviously LINE was blatantly overvalued before it was cut in half recently?

    I commend your strategy of 'stirring up the hornets nest' to get increased page views and revenues from SA. If you are a satirist and playing devil's advocate I respect your success, but something here reeks of capitalist manipulation of the masses without caring to portray anything of a balanced or in depth analysis.

    Hard for me not to see this article and not think that MLP's are ripe for a nice bounce soon. I would buy BBEP below $16.00 and enjoy the ride back up to $18+ It will be there in a months time.

  • A Generational Buying Opportunity In Gastar Exploration [View article]
    Bottom line is that this lawsuit changes the whole ball game in regard to GST. I am not a lawyer and do not know enough about these issues to make a reasonable assumption about who is right/ wrong, and or what a potential lengthy legal battle could cost to a company who is not cash rich.

    The reason for the price depression vs. the asset base/ future potential in the past 6 months is now apparent for those who wondered how this stock was trading so far below intrinsic value (me included). Obviously some big players, lawyers, CHK executives, GST executives, potentially hedge funds shorting, etc. all knew about the impending law suit and the effect it would have when the sheep got wind of it.

    While most panic selling and over-reaction has likely been concluded at this point, there is just no true clarity to the situation other than initial salvos by the companies involved.

    Also worrisome is the fact that Gastar has settled other business related lawsuits in the past for millions of dollars. Even if they win and get this case dismissed it will surely cost more millions of dollars in lawyers fees and/or settlement costs. GST's management is looking increasingly incompetent and non-professional in my opinion. They need to come out with much stronger public statements, press releases, clarity about lawsuit and the company's prospects, and probably replace an exec or two with some new blood.

    I honestly think the best play here is to wait for pertinent news to come out regarding the lawsuit's potential outcome or proceedings, and then make your purchase decision. Buying now, or anytime before there is a much clearer picture of where this is headed, and what it will cost the company, is purely speculative in it's purest form. The good news is the company really doesn't have a huge debt load for its situation, and BK seems highly unlikely in the current circumstances. The trading of the preferred also leads me to believe investors aren't thinking BK is a possibility anywhere in the near future. The yield is only 13% and does not indicate any true panic on the debt levels, cash situation.

    I am fine with buying above $1.00 as long as I know this legal issue will be resolved in a satisfactory manner, and not irreparably damage GST's prospects going forward.

    It is most important to be on the RIGHT side of the trade, not get the lowest possible price IMO.

    Having said that, taking a highly speculative position with the common stock very well may have it's purpose within your investing criteria depending on your personal situation. But I would not risk money you are not perfectly willing to lose for the chance of getting 5x and higher returns long-term.

    I am personally out of this stock, but am waiting and researching to be prepared to possibly purchase additional shares as things develop.

    Sometimes price action is a future indicator for news, as we all know that insider trading is alive and well on greedy wall street, and it is only the bag-holding shareholders who truly get burned over and over again. Tread with caution here. If you initiate a long position, give yourself a reasonable stop with good risk/reward ratio.

    IE Buy @ $0.70, stop order at $0.60, profit target minimum of $1.15.

    Best of luck.

  • Why ATP Oil May Not Go Bankrupt [View article]
    The preferred shares, ATPGP, traded at $5.00 friday. This is with a $2.00 dividend that will be paid in September, before the looming bond payment. So really you are risking $3.00 to own a $100 par value preferred convertible that pays $8.00 per year. Just buy it and if they can keep the doors open for 6 months you are paid back for your investment. I think thats the way to play ATPG for now. Or using options. Great article though.

    I am a pretty big fan of the preferred as well. Hard to find anywhere else in the world with an 8% yield I find to be extremely safe based on fundamentals. Best of luck!

  • Don't trust this rally; it's a major bull trap, says currency analyst Christopher Vecchio. Pressures on global financial markets are too intense to support a sustained run in stocks right now. All it will take is just a few gusts of negativity to derail the entire train.  [View news story]
    Just another Monday Morning Quarterback if you ask me. Look into the future moron, not the past.

  • Chesapeake Energy (CHK) is saddled with $1.4B of previously unreported liabilities due over coming years from off-balance sheet deals, WSJ reports. The company has commitments to banks requiring delivery of specific amounts of oil and gas. These so-called VPPs are essentially debts, with payments due in fuel rather than cash. Shares take a tumble, -1.7%.  [View news story]

  • Time To Buy This 13% Dividend Monster: Newcastle Investment [View article]
    It actually briefly broke below $6.00 on April 10th and I bought a small position. In hindsight I should've bought more. But patience and conservatism is the name of the game, and I am happy with my 1/4 position size I did buy.

  • Treat Your Portfolio Like A Private Equity Fund [View article]
    2 quotes for everyone -

    'To enjoy a reasonable chance of continued better-than-average results, the investor must follow policies which are 1) inherently sound and promising, and (2) are not popular on wall street'

    'Great investing requires an independent spirit, and the courage to acquire assets the crowd disdains. Disdain creates bargains.'

    Anyone care to guess what famed investors spoke the words above?
