  • How Bad Is It For Natural Gas? [View article]
    As usual...the shorts in the natural gas futures market have no reason yet at this pont to stop shorting natural gas. At some point these 'shorts' will get the heck scared out of them...and 'buy' back those 'short positions'. It is completely being overdone. Besides...natural gas drawdowns about every year don't begin until latter December or early January and continue to drawdown with prices rising up until mid March or first of April. No use to panic....futures markets go up/down all the time and have usual trends each year. So..stand by...don't panic....if you own UGAZ, UNG......just ride it out.......everyone likes to talk about this storage..and yes it is a tremendous factor......Scientists still don't understand the full effects of "El Nino"....just like the 'global warmest' have finally giving up......and to make it more palatable to the 'common man''' has changed the name to ""Global Change""".....well,,,d... makes more Global Change going to be '''warmer''', ''colder''', ''wetter''', '''dryer''' the politicians something to talk about and meet goes the world.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: World Shares Look For Clarity [View article]
    That is the full truth. My wife's policy went up from $ 426 per month to $603 per month with the deductible going from $ 5000 to $ 6750. The premium increase equals about $ 177 per month.....this extra expense will knock a whole in spendable income. Since ObamaCare came in...her premium has gone up from $ 350 per month with a $ 2500 deductible. Great program...not!

  • Reviewing CVR Partners LP: What Caused The 25% Price Decline? [View article]
    Have owned and operated a farm supply store for many years. UAN and NH3 (ammonia) is applied primarily to wheat and corn. My extensive experience with both of these types of fertilizer related to corn, sorghum grains and wheat...says that when the previous crop season was good with average to high yields that the next season's fertilizer usage will be equal or better than the previous year. Therefore with the location of UAN's facility in Coffeyville, Kansas in a good location for distribution in the intensive crop growing region of the years tonnage volume should be very usual. Yes, Corn and wheat prices per bushel are low and bottoming...but the farmers will apply about the same amount of fertilizer per acre as in the past previous years. Hold UAN....better days will return.

    I see that RNF unit holders have filed a lawsuit against the Board, etc. regarding this whole deal. I would be surprised if this merger is ever approved. Too much downside for the RNF unit holders. I am disturbed about how UAN Board looked at this whole merger in the first place. UAN was doing fine...and this whole deal has just thrown a 'monkey wrench' into the excellent operations of UAN.....

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Throw China A Life Preserver [View article]
    Yes,,,he was...and he has now certainly been a huge disappointment. I used to think we still had one body in gov't that would say it the way it is....but we have certainly lost that in the USA......and now the citizens really can't trust anyone except themselves. What a moral crisis we now have in the USA!

  • CVR Partners: A High Yield Fertilizer Play Now On Sale [View article]
    Having been in agriculture in the midwest for over 40 years and been a grain elevator owner in the midwest for over a decade, when farmers have high yields such as corn and wheat, the plants take up about all of the available nitrogen in the soil each year. Even with lower prices which may come about with corn prices this fall, it has been the norm for farmers not to reduce the usage of the same level of fertilizer nitrogen as the previous year. In addition with the price of oil and natural gas being substantially lower even compared to last year, the price of fertilizer should be less this fall. Therefore, I see CVR doing very well for the next year. Meaning,,,I agree with the author that CVR should be a good buy here and it being an MLP should continue similar earnings per quarter as 2014.

  • TAXI slumps as chunk of medallions could hit the market [View news story]
    The hype of the values of these Medallions is being overdone. If you look at the financial information regarding TAXI this company has substantially reduced their financial portfolio of Medallions for relying on income. TAXI has diversified into many other areas of finance for income. And NYC has the most Medallions outstanding with really not very many in Chicago or other minor cities. With interest rates beginning to move higher this event is beneficial for any finance affiliated stock like JP Morgan, CitiGroup and TAXI. And the cab companies in NYC are soon to have smart phone apps to compete with the Ubers and others.

  • Why China Is Taking Control Of Physical Gold Pricing [View article]
    It will be interesting to watch. However, I think the SDR's will become the world currency over the next decade. It will stabilize the international trade payments between countries because it will be a basket of currencies establishing the value of the SDR daily. Of course, Chinese Yuan will be in the basket along with the 'all ready' currencies in the basket of the US Dollar, British Pound, Euro and the Japanese Yen. Due to China being a dictatorship country with still a great deal of uncertainties in record keeping, laws, etc....I question whether the Chinese Yuan will ever be a world reserve currency except affecting it within the IMF SDR.

  • ISIS attacks oil-rich Kirkuk [View news story]
    Oil has been in crisis helped along with the fast rising dollar. In regards to Obama and his 'drone strikes'....Bush would probably have used them much more...but when he left office there were a very limited number of them. Now the drones are everywhere...even in the lawn of the WH.

  • You Can't Go Long Uber By Shorting The Taxi Medallion Financial Industry [View article]
    That has been my feelings regarding TAXI. However, we all know that 'perception' and 'momentum' affect stock prices whether the underlying are good or bad. Time will tell, but my guess is that when the MSM chatter about Uber, etc..dies will see TAXI moving back up into the 12.50 - 14.00 area. In the meantime, enjoy the quarterly dividends.

  • Bad-Boy Dogs: A 5.99% Advantage For 5 Lowest-Price, High-Yield Stocks [View article]
    UAN will follow the price of corn per bushel. Their products, Ammonium Nitrate and Liquid Nitrogen Fertilizer is used for fertilizing ground with Nitrogen for Wheat, Corn and Sorghum. The price of these commodities have been hit hard because of the huge harvest this fall. Because of the huge crop this fall, farmers will plant about the same acres of corn and sorghum come spring. In addition, liquid nitrogen will be applied to the wheat acreage in Jan, Feb and March. The farmers with their 'good' crops this year,,,even though they are all at a very cheaper price will apply about the same amount of nitrogen per acre as they usually do. So therefore, I predict UAN will 'gradually' increase in price over the next 6 months. Hang on. To get back to the price range of the $ 17 per share is a long way off, but I could see an gradual movement back to the $ 14 per share area....and believe the Dividends per share will hold about steady as where they are.

  • Aetna could pull out of Obamacare - CEO [View news story]
    When this Obamination called "Obamacare" goes through the initial cycle, the insurance companies will have all withdrawn from the Obamacare market. The majority of those uninsured don't read much information, don't feel like they need to sign up, feel like they can still go to the emergency rooms....and...think about it....majority of the uninsured probably don't have a computer, access to the internet to sign up, and really don't know what is going on. So...there you companies will pull out or it will be an economic disaster for them. By the way...PeakOiler....pra... all businesses regardless what the industry is works on an average of about 15% margin that after paying for salaries, utilities, etec....end up with about 1 1/2% before income taxes. You need to get an understanding of business before you begin blowing off!

  • Gold's Fear And Uncertainty Trade Is Dead [View article]
    He can say all he wants to about Gold/Silver....but 'hyper inflation' will hit one in the butt at some point in the next 5 -10 years. I have put 5% of my portfolio in physical gold. It is not for me (at 72+) but is for my wife (61+) for her well being in the years down the road. That is the key to Gold/Silver. It may happen, it may not......but with this crazy world of QE.....and that is the only choice that gov'ts around the world really have to 'hold the world' together.......inflation will come. When inflation starts..just see how the Fed reacts when the people are crying and crying that the stock market is going down when they raise interest rates, people are stopping buying...and here comes deflation and contraction! It is not very likely to happen ..austerity it will not politician has the 'guts' UNTIL THERE IS A TOTAL ECONOMIC COLLAPSE....and that is a probability.....if that does happen......then Gold/Silver physical possession just might be your light to continue to survive....supposing that riots, etc. don't burn you down and run you out of town in front of the angry mob because you still have funds to live will be the proletariat member of society and so sighted in on!! There will be a 'day of reckoning' and it is not going to be pretty! In fact it will be horrible to be living in those times! We are currently living in a total 'dream world' thinking that life is going to continue as it is now! You can certainly see that in Washington, DC....they are living in a 'dream world'!
