    Thanks for the support piece about crumbling earnings.

    Reminds of my younger days walking girders 250' up and hoping there wouldn't be a piece of welding rod on the girder to step on or a strong crosswind.

    I believe the market is on the girder and there is all sorts of junk in the way with the wind picking up from many different directions at once. A parachute would be in order.

    Interesting article on the rig count and its lack of significance to current output. Production still increasing.

    It's all location, location, location. Ask LT {;-)

    Re:Dambisa Moyo's talk

    Thanks for the link.

    Excellent article- I've read it twice so far and I'm sure there will be a third time. Must read, IMHO.

    Knowing the volatility of that stuff, HTL I would be out like a scalded cat. But that's just my nature.

    Re:Medical costs-

    One thing many don't consider is that the cost of drugs varies dramatically depending on where they are obtained. My daughter was out of state and had her purse stolen (eventually found a block away) and her prescription drugs were taken along with her cash. Her lone credit card was not taken, probably missed. She needed her medication and went to the local Rite Aid and could have filled her scrip for a little over $425. She called me for advice.

    From experience I told her to go to the nearest chain big box grocery store and enrol in their drug purchase program. She did and bought the scrip OUT OF NETWORK for a cost of $135. Most people feel that their insurance drug program will always be cheapest but sometimes that's not the case. I use a Hannaford Grocery for my scrips and they will always check to see which format is less costly. It is worth while checking. Walmart does similar programs but I prefer to not patronize them.

    I believe the cost of drugs drops significantly next year under the Obama program.

    INO broke through the 200 SMA and 200 EMA in November.

    (INO)

    Does anyone know why INO tanked 30% in three days?

    I checked all the twit and Fierce Pharma stuff but zippo.
    The only thing I figure is the downgrade of Ebola worries.

    Re:Greece and Russia-

    Think I have it worked out.

    Russia would declare Greece as a plebiscite of the Crimea and be there to help if Greece needed a battalion or two for protection.

    I calculated the CURRENT price of (ETP) which is $58.83 the basis for each share of RGP that will receive .466% of an ETP unit plus $.32.

    .4066 of 58.83 is $23.92. The current price of (RGP) is $23.97 which is within a percent of the conversion ratio.
    The $.32 will be in addition to the conversion price. You could consider the 32 cents the discount value for the wait.

    Price of ETP will govern the value on an ongoing basis.

    We have to cheer for (ETP) now. I am confident of a happy outcome.

    I just pulled this from the Regency web site, an announcement of a distro of $.5025 on 2/13 - record 2/6. Notice also announcement of a preferred distro as well. The deal is expected to close before the end of the second quarter.

    http://bit.ly/1zvYGD0;highlight=

    Somewhat distressed price could be some kind of arbitrage or worry about the deal failing- the latter of which I do not see happening.

    "Regency position (RGP) is down to $23.81, when ETP has announced they will be buying Regency for $26.86."

    When does that happen? Is it a done deal?
