  • Go Against The Grain On Hewlett-Packard [View article]
    Marek, what I found lacking in your article is numbers. A 39 1/2 foot pole might be important or it might be absolutely irrelevant. The only other number you mention is a 4% decline in revenue, which is meaningless in the long term. Apparently you think you value a stock by ignoring it's balance sheet. Security Analysis on the other hand requires a look at the numbers.

  • How Does the Financial Crisis Affect the Peak Oil Thesis? [View article]
    There is no such thing as peak oil because hydrocarbons are infinite and renewable.

  • Renewable Energy Development Falling Far Short of Potential [View article]
    We need to invest more in renewable oil.

    "Hydrocarbons can be re-defined as a 'renewable resource, rather than a finite one' (Gurney 1997)" -- Peter R. Odell, economist/geologist, 2004

    "Enormous implications follow from oil and gas being renewable resources." -- Peter R. Odell, economist/geologist, 2004

    Unfortunately Mr. Market is emotional, irrational, unscientific, and afraid of the real world.

  • The Best Alternative Energy Play [View article]
    The average new oil field discovery was 30 billion barrels 50 years ago? That's news to me since that would put the average well 50 years ago as the fourth biggest discovery in world history after Ghawar, Burgan, and Sugarloaf/Carioca.

  • Is Eni Becoming Gazprom's European Twin? [View article]
    I'm shocked by the ignorance.

    It is a well known fact that Berlusconi is an FSB agent as revealed by Litvinenko.

    Italy is part of the Eastern Block and a puppet state of Russia.

    Therefore Eni is a subsidiary Gazprom.

  • Analysts' Oil Forecasts Wildly Off Base [View article]
    Oil is infinite.

    "Hydrocarbons can be re-defined as a 'renewable resource, rather than a finite one' (Gurney 1997)" -- Peter R. Odell, economist/geologist, 2004

    "Enormous implications follow from oil and gas being renewable resources." -- Peter R. Odell, economist/geologist, 2004

    "I do not know of any idea more likely to keep people impoverished than the idea that resources are natural, fixed, and finite. " -- Thomas R. DeGregori, economist, 2002

    "The problem with the finite-resource theory is nicely illustrated by recent trends in oil production. There are 6,784 trillion fewer barrels of oil in the ground today than there were in 1981, the year in which relative oil scarcity was greatest. At first glance, then, one might think that the natural resource base has deteriorated. Yet oil is relatively more abundant today than it was 17 years ago." -- Jerry Taylor, political scientist, 1998

    "The industry will never run out of oil, not in 10,000 years. Some day, it may run out of customers. Every mineral industry is a perpetual tug-of-war, between diminishing returns and increasing knowledge." -- Morris A. Adelman, economist, 1997

    "Neither we, nor our grandchildren, nor their grandchildren will live to see the end of the oil era." -- Karl-Heinz Schult-Bornemann, geologist, 1997

    "We now have in our hands—really, in our libraries—the technology to feed, clothe, and supply energy to an ever-growing population for the next seven billion years." -- Julian L. Simon, economist, 1995

    "It is obvious that the total amount of petroleum in the rocks underlying the surface ... is large beyond computation." -- Edward Orton, geologist, 1888

  • Lehman Collapse Causes Funding Difficulties for Renewable Energy Companies [View article]
    Oil and gas are renewable and the companies in the sector are well funded.

  • Hedge Funds Finding New Ways to Short [View article]
    I have a better idea. Take your capital, leave the country, and never come back. The next totalitarian step after banning short selling is obviously to freeze our bank accounts and prevent us from leaving the country in search of financial freedom.

  • Why Short-Selling Bans Cause Problems [View article]
    It's called totalitarian fascism aka bipartisan socialism. Welcome to the USSA. The coup leaders Bush, Paulson, and Bernanke are jealous of the authoritarian powers in Pakistan and so they are imitating the Taliban. Guess which country didn't participate in the biggest emerging markets rally in 20 years? The only country totalitarian enough to ban short selling besides the USSA, namely Pakistan.

    Needless to say this is going to cause a market crash as capital, money managers, and hedge fund managers flee the country in search of economic freedom. The next step is Bush and Paulson freeze our bank accounts and prevent us from leaving the country.

  • Why "Drill, Baby, Drill!" Does Not Translate Into Effective National Energy Policy [View article]
    Like the peak oil cultists Simmons and Pickens I'm actually invested in oil and I profit from the myth of scarcity based upon ignorance of modern Russian petroleum science. Domestic drilling should be illegal forever. And you should pay me $1000 per barrel for my oil.
