  • NBC hoping Super ratings boost other properties [View news story]
    So they're hoping about 35% of the US population tunes in. I bet that's a lot lower number than the football freaks think watch it. I'm happy to be part of the 65% who doesn't watch. Haven't bothered to watch for the last 25 years. Let me know if Katy Perry has a wardrobe malfunction, though. I'll want to catch that on YouTube...

  • Key Tronic: A Cheap, Quality, Growth Play On EMS Re-Shoring [View article]
    I really enjoyed reading this. Just one question. Early on you mention FN with it's great ROIC and operating margins yet it trades at a cash adjusted PE of 7. 10 and 12 trailing and forward unadjusted for cash. Why then would you expect the market to award KTCC a 15 multiple on $1.15 earnings? Why would it trade differently than it did in 2013 when it earned $1.12 and never cracked $12?

    @mrabody Great comment! Saved a lot of us the trouble of explaining service revenue to this author.

  • Kinder Morgan: Buy The Dip, It Will Not Last [View article]
    Don't forget Kinder also transports gasoline. As fuel prices drop demand increases as people drive more.

    The transport of NG is very likely to increase as more coal fired power plants are replaced and US LNG export begins. Also, the export of liquefied condensates is increasing and should even be helped along As prices drop along with crude.

  • Vertex Energy: Oversold And Under-Appreciated [View article]
    You model 2015 revenue of $474 million with EPS of $0.84. The 5 analysts who cover the stock have average revenue estimates of $392 million with EPS of $0.56

    What do you think they are missing?

  • C&J Energy Acquisition: A Breach Of Fiduciary Duty And The End Of The Fracking Era [View article]
    In 2014 the U.S. will produce about 8.6 million barrels of oil per day. If the price fell to a level that was uneconomic for fracking and stayed there long enough then fracking would come to a halt and so would most of that oil production.

    If that much oil came off the market what do you think would happen to the price?

    That's right.... The price of oil will ultimately stabilize at a price where fracking is economic because it has to. Fracking is here to stay.

  • Rentech Acquires Largest Producer of Wood Pellets for U.S. Heating Market [View article]
    But Blackstone provided capital specifically for RTK to expand the wood pellet business and ultimately to IPO it. Blackstone also placed three adults to the BOD. I think it's finally time to give RTK a shot.

  • Two $4 Energy Plays On The Move [View article]
    I think IO can do $.80 in 2014. Exit the year around $8-$10 per share. Those analyst targets will be rising soon.

  • BlackBerry: We Are Right And Wall Street Is Wrong [View article]
    Perhaps the best article I’ve read on SA for quite some time. I hope very few people read it. Because if too many investors begin to realize how to really make oneself rich in the stock market then this wonderfully inefficient market will become more efficient and I will find it more difficult to trounce the market.

  • Deja Vu, BlackBerry [View article]
    Folks, this what you can expect when you seek to double or triple your money. BBRY has sum of the parts value of at least what it trades for. And now you have the best man for the job of turning the business around with plenty of liquidity at his disposal. The author and others like them should absolutely go out and buy the undusputed leaders in all their respective markets, sit back, and enjoy those 7% annual returns.

    They will never find an APPL 15 years ago or a HPQ or GNW 15 months ago. They simply don’t have the foresight.
