  • U.S Coal Exports To Europe At Record Highs [View article]
    There are 2 LNG terminals proposed in Canada, 4 in Oregon, 2 in California and 2 in Mexico...Unless you're talking shipping coal from the West Coast....You probably aren't aware, but we don't have coal on the West Coast....As to 'greenies' over here, which coast killed the wind farm off of Martha's Vineyard? ... What an ass.

  • Seadrill: Newbuilds And Contractual Dayrate Increases Position Company Well For Growth [View article]
    SDRL needs a pullback here. Nice recovery from 34.00 though and nice fundies. Also not mentioned is the 8.34% dividend as a sweetener in a world of 0.5% passbook interest rates.

  • Lihua International: We Do Not View China 360 as a Disinterested Third Party [View article]
    All the article says is China 360 is "not a disinterested 3rd party". Why anyone would beat up the authors over that bland a statement is beyond me.

    I tracked Chinese Reverse Mergers for awhile and have to say that I appreciate knowing that China 360 and Global Hunter have an arrangement. You cannot be too cautious when dealing with Reverse Mergers. As of today, LIWA is hitting new lows and the short ratio is 25%...(TWENTY FIVE PERCENT!!!) I'm looking at it as a possible bounce back to 4.00 based on proposed Chinese Infrastructure stimulus and appreciate finding out everything I can about the accounting firm (I guess) that tells me LIWA is OK.

  • Seriously, Can Hewlett-Packard Be This Cheap? [View article]
    Pretty hard to take HP seriously when they pay off the old CEO and buy Meg Whitman who's business plan is "to do exactly what the last guy did". HP is hoping that Whitman is the magic touchstone that will take a once great innovative company, but is now just another burned out tech company back to its prior glory. In truth, Whitman's success with EBay was strictly luck in that she helmed a company with no competition at a time when online business was just taking off. Luck is fine, but it isn't transferable.

  • The Presidential Election 2012: The Economy And The Stock Market [View article]
    During the Great Depression, unemployment was 25%. Never could determine if they measured unemployment the same way we spin it. If you add those that gave up looking, retired early, or moved back with mom and dad, I'm guessing we have a real 15% unemployment.

  • The 6 Most Popular Stocks Owned By Congress [View article]
    If Congress had any intention of really providing an open display of their trades rather than hiding their obvious insider knowledge, they would simply have required the use of, which would immediately show the world what they were buying, rather than maintaining a 30 day secrecy to their benefit. Dirty business by our crooked Congress. Nothing more.

  • Why Chesapeake's Shares Could Double With Natural Gas By Winter [View article]
    Don't watch Jon Stewart and am all for Natural Gas...... Just don't want to live in some "Road Warrior" future because we handed over our natural resources to Big Oil without any restraints. The issues are valid and real.

  • Why Chesapeake's Shares Could Double With Natural Gas By Winter [View article]
    Luddite pseudo-hysteria? Like poisoned wells. depleted aquifers and flaming spigots? Really?

    BTW, $CHK is selling natural gas reserves and buying oil. And Aubrey is hardly a good CEO.

    Appreciate this lesson. When they placed the offer, not being an accountant, I was stumped by the ramifications. I'll know better what to look for if I see similar. Thanks.

  • Notable Insider Buys Filed On July 3 [View article]
    Re $MNKD ==>What WCoastGuynCA said<== Was just checking that myself. Further, the stock that the CEO received to pay off his loan included a clause stating the loan would no longer be available. IMO, this is not a healthy move for investors of MNKD.

    One insider bought 4000 shares of SSN at 1.25 and the other bought 1,000,000 shares at 0.06. Both on 6/21/2012...Beginning to think the second insider was the smart one. Price today 1.07..Looks strong to keep dropping too. Maybe I'll place a limit order at 0.06...Just in case.. ;=)

  • Nuclear Equities: The Week Of June 18 - 24, 2012 [View article]
    Just a thought; if Germany follows through with its phase out of its Nuclear power generators and intends to buy power from France, then France (which is 78.8% nuclear generated) will pretty much have to pump up the volume, so to speak to compensate.

    Odd we don't hear much about the French Nuclear giant "Areva" either, although I did come across articles saying they are in the running for Chinese and Middle East nuclear power plants.
