    Everyone has been saying they aren't going to cut output why would anyone in their right minds expect them to suddenly change course?

  • Ex-Massey CEO indicted on charges related to fatal coal mine explosion [View news story]
    I think you are missing the point of responsibility Roxieanne. As the CEO you are responsible whether you want something to happen or not... Do you think the big execs at Enron wanted the company to go belly up and be the prelude to one of the largest financial disasters the US has ever seen? No, did they deserve to go to jail? You bet your sweet ass they did.

    Responsibility doesn't just fall within what you expect the outcome to be...

    DISCLAIMER: I'm not taking a position on this particular case just making a general statement about responsibility.

  • Reuters: Apple stepping up efforts to win over enterprises [View news story]
    Deja Vu, That might be the case if not for the fact that the enterprise world is used to MSFT doing well one iteration then fucking the next one up...XP good, vista terrible, 7 good, 8 terrible... Windows 10 has already received praise from early reviewers.

    So the choice for businesses is, wait a little bit for something that won't require major fundemental change in business and training or go ahead and commit to those changes and costs related.

  • Seadrill's West Vela Deal Shows The Company's Financial Flexibility [View article]
    If oil prices and rig rates continue to decline SDLP and SDRL along with the whole sector will likely see massive bankruptcy filings.

    That is a worse case scenario though, at some point oil prices rig rates will stabilize. Management moves will be key, whoever can adapt to the near term headwinds the best should provide the best value going forward.

    One thing to think about is that since capex going into new rigs should go to near zero should the worst be realized SDRL's rigs will remain the premier (newest) on the market for longer than traditional cycles.

  • Alpha Natural Resources - Time To Leave The Ship [View article]
    lol cfb probably right!

    Ferdinando: Don't quit we all get stuff utterly wrong I did the same thing with $ANR but on the way down (I thought $19 would be the bottom, then 12, then $5). I worked in teh coal industry for 6-8 years and still didnt get it right.

    Key is to try and learn something, find where you went wrong or what changed that caused your thesis to not hold up.

  • The Market Seems To Be Overestimating Seadrill's Risk [View article]
    You say your comments don't need to be long winded but what you fail to realize or purposely ignore is that by posting 15,000 posts all with one sentence you just clog up the whole thread with your bullshit. Say what you need to say in as few comments as necessary. Posting 15 times in a row in less than 2-5 minutes is probably the literal definition of spam (that isn't the meat in the can btw in case you are just joining us in the tech century).

  • The Likely Republican Senate Win May Boost Coal Stocks [View article]
    Not staring at the screen enjoying the bounce but I still think it will be short lived.

    I am surprised and kudos on the call. If I was in at 1.90 I'd be out now but I'll hold until 10+
