  • Oxford Resource Partners (OXF -30.1%) plunges in the wake of Monday's news of a reduced Q3 cash distribution of $0.20/common unit. OXF had expected to receive $10M-$15M in proceeds from the sale of excess equipment from its Illinois Basin operations but determines it is not likely to obtain acceptable value for the assets by the end of 2012. [View news story]

    Disappointing news to be honest. Especially when OXF earlier in the year issued a statement the .4375 dividend was safe for all of 2012.

  • Vanguard's Jack Bogle takes advantage of Facebook's (FB) plunge and the negative impact it's had on the psyche of the retail investor to hammer home the merits of index investing. Bogle says: "It all comes down to value and it all goes away from price, and avoiding IPO's and avoiding individual stocks is the best strategy for investors." (video)  [View news story]
    Thx Paulo. Thought that is what you meant. I have had success buying IPO's just after market open. BNNY, ET, SPLK are 3 I was able to make 10% or more on.

    Very good article btw. Im new to the site so I missed that piece.

    I am really interested in your piece on coal producers such as OXF. For the last 2 quarters, I have bought shares ahead of ex-div and been able to make some money. Was considering OXF for a long-term option....

    Thx !!!

    Paulo - do you mean a person should buy and sell IPO on the first trading day?

    btw- I loved your coal piece. I would love to talk to you about an Ohio company, OXF, if you are willing.

  • InvenSense (INVN -25.5%) crashes after reporting in-line FQ4 EPS but guiding for FQ1 revenue of $38M-$40M, below a $41.6M consensus. The company says it was tripped up by component shortages for 4G phones containing its motion sensors - the comments suggest Qualcomm's (QCOM) 28nm supply issues were a factor. Oppenheimer previously aired concerns about competition, as well as a May 15 post-IPO share lockup expiration.  [View news story]
    So with the 5/15 date coming, what does this typically mean for share price?

  • If You Don't Get Motion Sickness, Look Into Buying InvenSense [View article]
    Amazing what happened to INVN. I bought it at $15 while back, rode it to $20 and sold. Shocked to see it trading where its at today. Whats the saying? But when others sell ? This is a volatile play, but a person could make some $$$ short term on this IMO. Im thinking of going in on INVN....watch it bounce back 10% next week.....
