  • 'The Force Awakens' to open in 4,100+ theaters  [View news story]
    Not sure what the total count of screens there are but I know there is one or two theaters I've come across that only show older movies (usually movies that aren't out on dvd yet but not in theaters anymore).

    Tiger Research,
    Good company or not they failed to recognize they were selling potentially toxic goods. At the very least they have poor QA controls in place.

  • China is in a vicious easing cycle - WSJ  [View news story]
    While profiting colleges is certainly a problem for college in the US its administrative staff salaries that are mostly out of control and sports money...

    I bet if you capped those two things to some % of eligible student tuition you would see rates plummet.

    Luckily I went in using the GI bill so I didn't pay a dime (in fact I got paid to go).

    Education debt is the biggest non-military threat to the US imo. It is holding back the spending of this generation all so some old fool can be dean of a college and make half a million /year.

    At this rate most US based oil energy will be bankrupt in 12-18 months. Probably the same for half of OPEC nations.

    They would need to believe the share price would be sustained at over $200ps. Not just a spike, not just a quarter they would need to believe it would stay that high indefinitely.

  • Utica Shale gas drillers hit gushers, rewarded with slumping stock prices  [View news story]
    Nothing matters in the broader context when you make that broad context support your theory.

    Unless the price is free those out of work middle class folks are going to think twice about buying non-essentials.

    I don't really understand your argument Benni, facts are facts; the energy sector has some of the best paying middle class jobs available in the US. Where are those people going to find equivalent paying jobs that need little to no training or extra schooling?

    People have been whispering of nat gas ever going over $5 again for years (literally). With so much easy gas available to pump at nearly any price it'll likely not break that $5 for at least another decade.

    But hey coal companies can hope nat gas ever see's oils prices per barrel. It's not like companies are burning it off cuz its cheaper to waste then to sell.

    You are assuming that the savings will make up for all the jobs lost in the energy sector... This is a a very poor assumption. Those jobs are typically upper middle class. Those people will more than likely end up in lower or below middle class jobs.

    Sure they'll be able to afford heat/electricity for their homes but not much else... assuming they can keep the homes to begin with.

  • Seadrill swings to loss on $1.8B writedown, accelerates cost cuts  [View news story]
    I doubt it is considered TBTF; more like so big reasonable effort could/should be made to give it every opportunity to not fail.

    It seems to me though SDRL is looking to aggressively cut costs and push out new build commitments. If (emphasis) they are successful in this I don't see why they shouldn't survive assuming oil re-balances in 3 years or less.
