  • Jim Cramer touts Magnum Hunter as high-risk, high-reward energy play [View news story]
    I have been with MHR through thick and thin for almost 5 years. I think my 40K
    shares are going to eventually pay off big time. Evans knows the business, and firing
    the accounting firm was a smart move. I kept buying on the drops. This company has some negatives, but the positive out look is what I am betting on.
    Besides, my initial cost basis was $3.00, which I have long ago gotten back.

  • Magnum Hunter's Hidden Billion Dollar Assets [View article]
    I have held MHR for some years, fortunately my position is that
    I work and live in the Eagle Ford, and know what is happening here.
    I will continue to remain long, but I just want them to show me the
    profit. Being a loyal stock holder is one thing, getting burned is
    another. I bought in so long ago that I am actually in the black on most
    of my buys, but not all. I have stuck with them for a long time,
    bought in originally at .80 per share. Unfortunately I continued to buy
    at 8.00, so I have a wide spread on this stock.
    For me, this is the risk part of my investing that makes playing the
    market just that, playing. I sure hope it pays off, I have the time, I
    hope they come up with the money.

  • Why Coca-Cola Is Better Than PepsiCo [View article]
    PEP has no real comparison any longer to KO. PEP is not beverage company, but a true consumer staple, selling much more than beverages. Anyone comparing these companies is 10 years behind the times. Get real! The Cola wars are over. PEP is a true foods
    company, KO sells beverages. Times have changed.

  • Magnum Hunter (MHR +16.9%) shares have been pushing higher all day, although the only news is the closing of the previously announced sale of Eagle Ford shale properties to Penn Virginia (PVA) for $401M. The stock actually received a downgrade, to Neutral from Add at CapitalOne; earlier this week, Deutsche Bank cut shares to Hold and chopped its price target in half. [View news story]

  • Goldman suspends coverage of Magnum Hunter (MHR -6.6%) due to a lack of sufficient visibility into MHR's financials following the dismissal of its auditor and another delay in the filing of its 2012 10-K. UBS downgrades shares to Neutral from Buy and cuts its price target to $3 from $5, saying management provided some clarity on its conference call but only from its perspective. [View news story]
    Has anyone else out there besides me been in this stock so long that
    they have the expirable warrants, that expire in October of this year.
    MHR issued them several years ago, stating that if the stock was
    At $10.50 a share by October 2013 you could turn in your warrants
    for whatever the stock was worth. We were isssued warrants on
    a 1 to 10 basis. What a farce that was, I am sure that the management
    at the time did it to make all of us feel very assured that we had a good
    bet that was on the way up. Every time I open up my home page at
    my brokerage and see those it is a very sore reminder of what a fool
    I was.

    Just feeling like somebody on "Survivor" right now.
    What is disheartening is that this company has promise. I lived in
    the middle of the Eagle Ford area for years, know what is going on.
    For the love of me I cannot figure out why this is not working.

    Some of us got in at 3's, 4's, 5's, 6's, 7's, 8's. Once upon a time this
    actually was an $8 stock, rolling along. Then it all went to hell.
    As you say, might as well hang in. Thank goodness, I own a load
    of PEP. That has sure looked good lately. Oh well, I have lived through
    a lot worse. I remember when Applied Materials and Qualcom were
    big dollar stocks. Look at them now, I'm still here. I still have hopes for
    MHR.
    In the meantime, buy a Pepsi and some Fritos.

    Just bought another 2K shares before the market closes.
    Now I am going to get out my whip and lash myself!

    Me too, still long, but anxious. My faith in Mr. Evans et al. has
    lessened. I have lived almost 70 years, and seen some other
    bad financial times, I just hope this turns out well, for all of us.
    Financial wisdom says all my money should be in bonds, but
    I have little faith in financial wisdom. That is an oxymoron. Risk makes your investing
    interesting, not boring.
    Hold on, this is going to be an interesting ride.

    I have to agree. This is still a whole new area in the oil business,
    I can recall worrying that Fraccing would be shut down.
    If you have money in you can always sell, I choose not to .
    Just remember, we have been sitting back for some time waiting for
    management just to file quarterlies. The whole thing is very trying.
    Gotta play this out.

    Randal, me too. I have over 40K shares, bought over a long period of
    time. I can remember when this was an $8 stock. Bought some then
    too. I guess I am obviously in this for the long haul, but you have to
    have some concern when all these accounting problems are going on.
    I believe Evans knows his business, but he is suddenly going from
    oil rich country back into Natgas country. Makes me wonder where
    his aims are, and his thinking.
    All we can do is look to the future, I am in really deep.

    Lets hope so, Randal. MHR news this morning shows a law firm has
    jumped in and is soliciting MHR investors for law suit. I have been in
    for 3 years, own a lot of the stock.
    Hope all this turns out, but it will take a long time to recoup unless
    MHR can pull a really big rabbit out of the hat.

  • Magnum Hunter (MHR -18.6%) is defended by SunTrust after the oil and gas explorer fired its auditor, sending shares plunging, Analyst Neal Dingmann says a major writedown is unlikely, and he believes proven reserves, MHR's credit facility and sales in Eagle Ford will not be affected. SunTrust has a Buy rating on the stock with a $10 price target. [View news story]
    I agree with Mr. Maher. This fall is managements fault, I am very
    long in MHR, but these people need to get it together.
    The Delay in filings has hurt all the investors, and it needs to be
    corrected. Add todays disclosure about changing accounting firms,
    and my portfolio is a disaster.

  • More analysis on the rumored PepsiCo (PEP) - Mondelez International (MDLZ -0.8%) combination (previous): JPMorgan's John Faucher is a major skeptic that PepsiCo will be willing to merge Frito-Lay with Mondelez even with activist investors on the scene. The analyst notes a tax-advantaged Reverse Morris Trust transaction is unlikely due to the size of the potential deal while an outright buy of MDLZ would be too pricey. [View news story]
    Well, after being an active investor for many years I have learned
    why analyst starts with anal.
    These guys get paid big bucks to change their mind, and affect our
    lives, every day.
    I would rather trust my gut than any analyst.
    I hope PEP does something with this deal, but if not, the worst can
    happen is they are still PEP, and my family has made good money
    with them for 3 generations since my grandfather blew his life savings
    on Frito. What a smart man, and he was a grocer, not an analyst.

  • Magnum Hunter (MHR -17.7%) plunges at the open after disclosing it dismissed Pricewaterhouse as its auditor. MHR says PwC advised that information had come to its attention that if further investigated may have a material impact on the fairness or reliability of consolidated financial statements. [View news story]
    Damn, I have a lot in this company. Apparently, way too much. I have been long for over 3 years. Evans is supposed to be really good. I hope this is not another Enron deal.
    I assume with all the sales and acquisitions there could be problems,
    lets hope not intentional.
    Frankly, I don't know what to do with the stock. I had great hopes, it
    seems to me that somewhere down the line things have gone off
    track. I am just hoping they can get this straightened out, I have a lot
    of money riding on this company.
