  • Apple: Enjoying The Good Time While It Lasts [View article]
    Apple should buy Puerto Rico and become its' own country. This would solve the problem of the unpatriated cash sitting overseas. Apple could move all of its' production to a country that they own and make the rules in. Apple could micro-manage the Puerto Rican economy and maybe show the rest of the world how things should work. Apple could improve the infrastructure, employ the citizens and establish an appropriate minimum wage ($15.00 an hour). With everyone working and making a living wage the economy of Puerto Rico would boom. The population of Puerto Rico is less than 1% of the population of the US and therefore Puerto Rico would be a fantastic laboratory in which to experiment with logical changes.

  • The Simple Math Behind BreitBurn Energy Partners [View article]
    It does not appear that the Emperor BBEP is wearing any clothes. Although the article makes a ton of technical sense where is the part about "now is the time to load up on BBEP"? Also how is it justifiable to continue to hold a stock that has lost 86% of its' value this year. Even in my portfolio I sold after holding on way too long but my loss was at least capped at (37%) that was back on 12/1/14 when BBEP was trading at $11.18. Does your hedge fund ever sell anything? Did you even convince yourself of the value in continuing to hold such a large loser? These are just observations.

  • Dead Dog Survey (Part 1) [View article]
    For clarities sake HPGP has not been in the $1.60 range since May 29th. A buy-out at $2.40 has been announced by the the stockholder who owns a controlling interest and although other stockholders are disaapointed with the price the deal will most likely go throught and close by Sep-30 providing a 3.90% return, at the current $2.31 price, and an annualized return of 14.36%.

  • Image Entertainment Takes Profit on Latest Buyout Collapse [View article]
    I am surprised that you could publish this article without even a mention of the ongoing failures to close the sale of Image. The buyer has been in breach of contract several times in just the last couple of weeks. However, Image continues to grant extentions. It appears that Image has a fear of delisting and is using this less than solid deal to artificially inflate the stock price. Does any of this concern you as an owner of Image stock?

  • What's Driving Precision Drilling Trust Into the Ground? [View article]
    The key question here is why didn't you buy Grey Wolf stock? Since i was already under water on PDS I purchased enough GW stock on Dec 4 & 5 so that when the deal closed not only would I own all of my new and old shares of PDS at an average cost of $3.28 but I could anticipate a 17% plus annual dividend based on that new cost. However, when PDS on Dec 11th said it would most likely cut or temporarily suspend its dividend in 2009 I hit the doors and sold both PDS and GW. Who wants to go forward with that type of uncertainty. Luckily the increase in the value of GW gave me a nice profit overall on this quick turn around. The question still remains "why wouldn't you buy GW if you wanty to own PDS?"
