  • Commodities Today: Selling Continues, But Buying Opportunities Emerge [View article]
    "Who are you going to vote for?"

    Very good question but my political rant prob would not be appropriate here.

    Short answer: political system completely broken, ain't NO BODY "out there" at this time who turn this ____up country around-really pathetic and tragic. D.C. is a swamp.

  • Pioneer Natural Resources Is A Poor Investment [View article]
    Good detailed comments from phillips and oilier-disagree completely with thrust of the article as detailed in those cmts-very short sighted imo-I'm quite long on PXD as I believe it is best of breed with stable experienced mgmt and huge potential. If one believes that crude will stay down here longer and lower, than E & P's are prob not the place to be. If one believes that production is turning down, as I do, and demand is stabilizing and turning up, than a bet here & now on solid E & P's is a prudent bet.

    Very impressed with PXD mgmt, particularly when all is not rosy. Longevity and experience are key when the road becomes a little rocky. Large long on PXD.

  • Bonanza Creek: A Survivor Of The Oil Price Downturn [View article]
    My sense, and maybe this is what the author is alluding to below, is that the differentials become more pronounced on a percentage basis as crude comes down. I believe the differentials in the Bakken during the downturn in feb-march were in excess of $11-$12 whereas in the Permian-Eagle Ford, where the infrastructure is more developed, it was less.

  • Hey, Apollo Education Group, We Don't Need No For-Profit Education [View article]
    These for profits are scams thru and thru IMHO-they rank right up there with pay day lenders. It is long past time that the politicians (yeah, right, that will happen) take a look at their track record, the type of individuals they are preying upon, and shut them down or at least cut off govt funding. The student debt attributable to these programs is huge.

  • Russian Market Review: May [View article]
    The Pope just awarded Putin the angel-peacemaker medal.
    Sanctions eroded 25% of Italian-Russian trade in 2015.
    Berlesconi and his party are pushing for lifting sanctions.
    German trade with Russia is significantly reduced.

    Who is getting hurt here-Obama's cronies?, not likely-German banker says Obama is destroying Europe-this is Kabuki theater.

    Actually, he was not expelled but taken out into the woods and beaten severely-he wondered back later and was hospitalized, photos of his injuries are available on some sites-he is a ukraine naturalized us citizen and is now somewhere out of ukraine;
    as you say, isn't democracy grand.

  • Russian Market Review: May [View article]
    Agree with your comment and the logic contained therein:
    1. When the neocons initiated the coup in kiev, it was clear from the stmts by the radical elements (will not get into the names of the extreme elements), that the Russian naval base at Sevestopol (under lease from Ukraine) was seriously at risk-this Putin could not allow;
    2. After the brutal massacre of pro-Russian supporters in the Odessa fire on 2 May 2014 and the subsequent bombing and shelling of civilian areas in the east, it was clear that a form of ethnic cleansing of the ethnic Russian population was underway by the kiev extreme elements-this also could not be allowed by Putin. That is not "aggression" as repeatedly affirmed by the Ministry of Truth, that is defending one's own.
    I would suggest that one try to look at the facts on the ground, the videos and photos of the devastated cities, villages, homes, schools, hospitals; the ukraines are using area style weapons and arty on non-military targets. Finally, forget about the western media-it prints the propaganda that is issued by the western govts, it is called keeping access to the government.

  • Why I Prefer Surgutneftegaz Preferred Over Common Stock? Its 21% Dividend Yield [View article]
    Ex-div is 14 Jul 2015, not 16 Jul as indicated in article; 16 Jul is record date.

    $1.54 is announced amount of div, pay date not provided. Last year, it was a month later.

    This evidently is an annual dividend.

    Volume today was ~2 mil when average is ~100K so evidently someone read your article.

    Thanks for the info.

    Thanks-good summary of stk composition of RSX.

    Agree on obvious propaganda coming out of kiev but unfortunately the neocon geniuses in State act as a megaphone.

    It seems that the situation may become more tense, simply for the reason you pointed out, creating a pretext for US-Russian military confrontation or possibly a false flag incident.

  • Vipshop: More Indications Of Misrepresentation [View article]
    Last count, seven law firms are either looking for lead plaintiff, have already filed class action, or are still in investigation phase on VIPS.

    Not a healthy sign.
