On Tuesday, May 12, I went to the Money Show in Las Vegas. While that gives me the opportunity to investigate new investment opportunities, it also gives me (and others) the opportunity to talk with companies that we are already invested in.
Such was the case at the Linn Energy booth where I met up with two other investors looking to check in on the company. The problem was that the company wasn't there. The booth was there, but it wasn't set up and it wasn't manned.
This was not just as the exhibit hall opened, it was 1:00 after. See www.silverknight.com/l...
I can not say that someone didn't arrive after that time, but considering the new public offering and senior notes offering, the timing was horrible. Even if there is some SEC regulation about being at the show and talking the prospects and shareholders, a note at the booth would have been nice.
