  • Raymond James downgrades a litany of big energy stocks, believing crude oil prices will average $65/bbl in 2013 as “oil fundamentals have only gotten worse." E&P names reduced: APA, APC, BPZ, CLR, CXO, DNR, EXXI, PXD, QEP, REN, WLL, GDP, KOG, OXY, PQ, SFY, OAS, SM, NOG, BRY, COP, FST, ROSE.  [View news story]
    World economy just too bad. US Shale Oil production just too good. It's one of those conundrums that just shouldn't happen, but as they say, timing is everything. Almost every other commodity's hit the pits, everyone takes their turn, what's so special about oil?

  • Kodiak Highly Leveraged To Downside In Oil Prices [View article]
    Sold at 9.06 on 1st $11 of oil price drop ($105 to $94). Gotta catch every detail and act immediately these days. May get back in or may go another direction, never know until the trend presents itself. The trend I see developing is a glut of shale oil. -Ernest

  • Why Oil Has Bottomed And How To Trade It With Less Risk [View article]
    Did you know that a pipeline out of Cushing, OK is reversing its flow so that we can export the glut of oil from US shale oil production? Did you know that east coast refineries are shutting down - cars getting better mileage. Oil dropped 24.5% in Aug 2011. This year it dropped 23% in MAY. Two warnings, plus it happened earlier this time. Beware of forecasting rising oil prices as these are signs that we may be turning the corner and reversing to a long term oil price down trend.

  • 4 Mid Caps Rated Buy By Ned Davis Research: A Look At Hedging Them [View article]
    17 Feb 2012 Questcor execs award themselves 802,396 Options @ $35.78, considered stock-based compensation, a non-operating expense (Sarbanes/Oxley). Six Insiders granted $28.71 million. The options will accrue to diluted shares (Sarbanes/Oxley). A hush-hush back-room adopted deal, for which no consideration was given to stockholders and not a bit of news was ever whispered, we can believe it's one more reason there's 16 million (25%) Short Interest. (See SEC form 4's)

  • Avoid The Pending Bad News From Chimera Investment Corp. Sell The Shares Now [View article]
    Why was the firing of their auditor so untimely? That is the $4.00/$2.38 question.
    It will be a sorry case if the accounting has to be corrected going a long way back.
    That would have skewed a lot of investors and analysts past decisions.

  • Questcor Will Skyrocket Into 2013 [View article]
    A stock that was 21-cents in 2007 gained 21,781% to $45.95 as of 9 Dec 2011 was "skyrocketing" but fizzled since then. The stone-cold-dud is just another ho-hum run-of-the-mill stock now. No stock keeps "skyrocketing" forever.

    QCOR You forgot to mention that Short Interest has about doubled during Q1 (so far) to 16-million, 25% of total outstanding shares. What's wrong at Questcor, those Hedge Funds shorting their own shares? lol

    They can't even keep track of all the acquisitions they've made. The company has grown/spread all over map. It is unmanageable, a boondoggle. In debt up to their eyeballs, no earnings, Insiders selling, what next?
