    no it now looks twice as bad...... also the price movement the last 52 weeks has been a big move... it was a relatively stable stock any way you cut it you're still trying to dress you pig

    oh by the way when this reverse split was announced I sold 80% of my position recouped my cost basis and I wrote the CEO and expressed why... he to his credit wrote back that evening... didn't answer my questions but wrote back. nice guy.. we correspondences over the next 24 hours several times ..needless to say... I am glad to have disposed of the shares ... if / when the shares dip to $20 I will repurchase until then.... I am in. holding pattern on hta

    actually the earnings are what the earnings are period...whether 125m shares or 250m shares .... no matter what way you logic it... the pig is the same... the pig is still made o the same pork as before .. only difference is the price now is doubled ....without any added value...assets are still the same as are the liabilities..

    a reverse stock split doesn't do a thing for earnings transparency...its a ridiculous assertion that it does. what it does do is allow all the reits you have mentioned to justify new offerings...period which does dilute shareholders value

  • Westport Innovations: Buy On The Drop? [View article]
    WPRT is hardly at a desperation point. Are they burning cash sure.. are they desperate no. Look at thier intellectual property as compared to the rest of the industry.

    nearly 423 patents on NG technology.. the closest leader to them is CAT with 293

    As published in their most recent corporate update

    http://bit.ly/1yMslNt

    Ford 181
    GE 128
    Toyota 127
    Honda 88
    Continental 87
    Cummins with only 77
    Bosch 67
    GM 67

    WPRT is only 2 years into their proposed shift to Profitability plan schedule for the year 2013 - 2017. They are on target to turn EBITDA Positive by the end of 2015

    The investment in WPRT was blown WAY out of proportion the last three years. Mr. Market is not a patient investor rather a bi polar, ADD child.

    Large truck fleets, are still continuing to make a shift to Nat Gas.

  • Will The Real Cliffs Please Stand Up [View article]
    I do not envy current management of CLF. The previous management stole all the chickens from the coop...and ran a century old company into the ground, blew through its cash, overbought assets that required heavy cash inflows for build outs and all expecting iron ore to stay over $100 a ton. the company may have cash to run for 6 years....but with recent write downs it has no eguity. No equity and its burning through cash... CLF is not an investment its a diaster

  • Westport Innovations: Stock Price Begs For A Decision [View article]
    If the business model is one that develops in terms of years and you short term invest well you are mismatching your investment criteria's and you will take it on the chin.

    Is natural gas going to be a leading Trucking fuel is what this comes down to. It's pretty bubble gum

  • FLY Leasing Still Trying To Close Its ROE Gap [View article]
    Since I began accumulating shares of Fly in 2011 it has returned in Dividends alone 18% of the cost basis of the purchases. It has lower the average age of its fleet significantly from 13 year to 8.7 and has prudently continued to sell as it needed and in each case with net gains.

    Management seems to be doing perfectly fine and spreading that love to shareholders through a healthy div which its competitors won't match.

    There nothing not to like about FLY, Its in a growth market.

  • Should Chesapeake Energy Shareholders Sell Shares Of Seventy Seven Energy? [View article]
    IF you are with a investment firm such as Fidelity or Tdameritrade.. please look at your gainskeeper. It automatically calculated your cost basis based on your position in CHK.

    There is a column that tells you the cost basis

    To record the transaction. The transaction is a non taxable event so a single aggregate transaction is all that necessary

    Book the following entries

    1. SSE "Buy" "Total Shares received" at the Cost basis listed in gains keeper
    2. CHK "Return of Capital" in the amount of the SSE cost basis
