  • Cheniere shareholders vote no to Souki pay package, but it's non-binding [View news story]
    I just can't find what Souki has done on is own that would warrant such an award. Was there a unilateral decision or other unilateral action that has lead to an obvious enhancement within the company? Generic achievement phrases are expected when receiving increase compensation but where's the big unilateral action that would warrant "this" award? These huge initial increases in CEO compensation by one company are usually followed by peers, causing even more discrepancies between CEO compensation vs. CEO contribution........well, at least there was a show of NO support.

  • Commodities Today: An Oil Stock To Buy And Tightening Diamond Market [View article]
    Sounds like it might be time to get out for a while and let the dust settle. The article today on jumping to PXE, while oil is down, sounded interesting, as does some of the fracking sand companies, trucking and railroad stocks.

  • Westport Innovations: Stock Price Begs For A Decision [View article]
    I used to have nothing but a positive outlook for the use of nat gas engines and WPRT's ability to produce efficient ones.. I'm still positive, but have lost a lot of my enthusiasm. WPRT has been disappointing this year, that, along with the idea that exporting (nat gas), future prices may no longer have that much of a competitive advantage, deflates my enthusiasm with WPRT (or CLNE). Made a lot of money with LNG though.

  • Deere Is A Good Long-Term Value Play [View article]
    Agree with the theory and have always liked DE, but might wait for a lower bottom to buy at. Guess timing is everything. I'm still think the market will correct 5-10% before the end of the year?? Maybe start phasing in some if it starts to show some volatility and starts to edge up...

  • Seadrill: Should You Double Down Now And Go All In Close To Seadrill's 52-Week Low? [View article]
    Me "three".....but not all in, going to start phasing in with 25% allocations. and really like the 10% div. while waiting. Hard part is deciding which target price, maybe phase that too.

  • George Soros Is Betting Against The Market And Why Investors Should Take Notice [View article]
    lol.. Thanks for the reply, I'll take your word for it. I certainly can't prove he "didn't" experience any real hardships in life. I have heard of the living in a car story before and just couldn't picture the guy actually "living" in a car for very long, if at all, but maybe he did. I've been there myself, albeit, for less than a week (but still unpleasant). In any case, I just don't believe he is as altruistic as he makes out to be, and (to me) he is just way too "sure" and a bit too egotistical for me to listen to for very long...., but that's me and my perception(s)/ problem(s). I'll admit that when I did listen to him, he actually did come up with a few good tips, and with a bit of follow-up research, I did pretty well (again,..I just can't take the guy's goofiness and ego ).

    I suspect you probably do pretty well with Cramer's tips, given the positive support you have towards him, and wish you nothing but the best in the future, cheers!

    Did Cramer really live out of a car while homeless? I think someone may have drunk a bit too much of the Cramer cool-aid!

  • Is China Being Outcompeted? [View article]
    More US competitiveness = better product quality and safety + less union involvement + better structured tax code + cheap energy.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Home Depot Confirms Payment Systems Breach [View article]
    I'm saying the president should take "immediate"responsibility for reducing the threats of another 9/11. I'm more worried about that (especially recently) than I am of upsetting Assad or creating other potential "political stress". What action? For starters, bomb ISIA locations (where ever they are), and use special forces to initiate high value raids. Not too difficult if one ignores "politics" and focuses on our security.

  • The Odds Are Stacked Against U.S. Natural Gas ETF Investors [View article]
    Seems that there should be a way to make money on "contango". The tracking differences just seem so huge and obvious that it has a sort of an appeal.... then again, I suppose if there were, it would have long been identified.

    Just a newbie thinking out loud, thanks for the information.

  • Why Westport Innovations' Weakness Looks Like A Buying Opportunity [View article]
    I have bought and sold (at a loss) WPRT several times, thinking it was at he bottom and "now" going to head up. Actually, I've not done much better with CLNE. I guess hoping and wishing that nat. gas will continue to be cost efficient and catch hold with American drivers is just not good enough to have it happen. I'll wait until I see this company actually make a significant upward push before buying it again. It would be great if 2014 "is" the year, but not going to hold my breath. I do like to keeping tabs on WPRT, though, so thanks much for the update.

    By the time obama comes up with a plan to deal with ISIS in Syria, they'll have been in Turkey for months. It's clear that the guy is in way over his head.

  • National Oilwell Varco: Drilling Down For Value [View article]
    Thank you, I appreciated the NOV information and am looking for a market correction to buy.

    One area that still bothers me some, however, is exactly how much business does NOV have in/with Russia and would this involvement change any of the predictions here, significantly? The other, more positive, issue is related to having more US public land opened up for exploration and production. IMO this is highly possible once a more informed (and rational/less political) administration replaces the present. This would, of course would bode well for NOV (and others) and increase both rig construction, wellbore technologies, etc..
