  • Time To Load Up On Peabody Energy [View article]
    I bailed on BTU at @27, took my profit and I'll rebuy @20. The outlook just doesn't look good in the short term. The 3rd quarter earnings are out tomorrow and will be weak, this will tell everything an investor needs to know about BTU. I'll be long BTU at a better entry point.

  • Initial Jobless Claims: -30K to 339K vs. 370K consensus. Continuing claims -15K to 3.28M[View news story]
    I have an idea. Why don't they now include the state that was omitted and restate the actual number. Why wait?

    We have 3 more jobs reports before the election, I'll bet they can get jobless claims down in the 150K range by then. Seasonally adjusted of course.

  • California Gov. Jerry Brown eases regulations on refiners, permitting the sale of winter-grade gasoline to boost supplies and hopefully provide price relief from soaring pump prices that now average $4.655/gal. Also yesterday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein asks the Federal Trade Commission to investigate the causes of the spike. [View news story]
    I don't know what world you live in but by law refiners can't release winter blend fuel in California before November 1. Since the refiners don't want to get stuck with excess inventory of summer grade fuel which any leftover would have to be stored until 2013, they curtail production of summer blend in late September. The unfortunate refinery production glitches further made California's strict emissions standards the culprit. If you want to place blame, the California voters would be a great place to start. Before Obama took office I would swear, in America a state could never nationalize any industry, but now I don't put anything past these GANGSTERS.

    I don't understand how these leftwing politicians like Feinstein can take themselves seriously. The excessive regulation they have imposed on the energy producers and refiners is totally oppressive. Who would they blame if Exxon and Phillips mothball their refineries and pulled out of the California market altogether?

  • ConocoPhillips (COP +0.7%) says it won't pursue further exploration activities in two blocks in Peru’s Maranon Basin, part of COP's effort to divest itself of billions of dollars in assets this year; the stakes will be transferred to Gran Tierra Energy (GTE). The move comes just weeks after Talisman Energy said it would quit the same blocks and two others in exiting Peru. [View news story]
    Maybe they are raising cash to buy out CHK.

  • Brazil's National Petroleum Agency says it's unlikely to fine Chevron (CVX) more than 50M reais ($24.5M) for its role in a November oil spill off Brazil's coast; the agency is expected to release its report on the incident later this week. CVX and Transocean (RIG) face civil and criminal lawsuits for their roles in the incident at the CVX-operated Frade offshore oil field.  [View news story]
    Brazil doesn't want to kill the cash cow, just bleed it a little bit. Big oil, cut your losses and get out because it won't stop.

  • Procter & Gamble's (PG) board is reportedly thinking about sacking CEO Robert McDonald. Directors are said to be unhappy with McDonald's performance, and are contacting former execs about possibly taking over. It's added the board's discussions influenced Bill Ackman's decision to take a large stake in P&G, and that the hedge fund titan plans to call for management changes. PG +0.8% AH.  [View news story]
    I padded my portfolio with PG at $60 for the stable dividend, who knew that it would become a growth stock too.

  • More on Nonfarm Payrolls: Average monthly job gains in Q2 of 75K vs. 226K in Q1. Revisions to May and April are a wash, showing a net loss of 1K jobs. The labor force participation rate (63.8%) and employment-population ratio (58.6%) are unchanged. The average hourly workweek gains 0.1 hour to 34.5 hours. Average hourly earnings up 6 cents to $23.50.  [View news story]
    I need to remind people of the implications of Obama’s immigration policy change this month. The pledge to issue work permits means that we may potentially add 1.2 million workers to the workforce over the next two years. That means we will have to add jobs at a rate closer to 200,000 per month just to keep up with population growth and the policy change. The pandering to special interests for votes has to stop.

    Romney is a proven leader, Salt Lake Olympics, Bain Capitol, ex-Governor. Obama has a fine record as a community organizer and Choom Gang member http://abcn.ws/MFogDv. Do you know war is coming for a fact? No you don't! We all now know where Obama's going to take us and it's nowhere I want America to go.

    Blueokie, with a Republican House and Senate next cycle even if Obama wins re-election, do you really want another 4 years of this sub 2% growth crap? The only shot America has to recover is a new direction and a new President.

  • Iran will see its July oil exports cut in half from regular levels seen last year, analysts say, as new sanctions stifle flows and cost the country more than $3B/month in lost revenue. Iranian exports have declined steadily from the 2.2M bbl/day average in 2011, and July exports look to be no more than 1.1M - or even lower amid complications with shipping insurance and as China disputes freight costs.  [View news story]
    We didn't use nukes in Korea or Vietnam because of the threat from China. I don't think China sees Iran as a valuable or close ally.
