  • Crude Tanker Shipping Market Macro Outlook, December 2015 - Part II  [View article]
    I share your concern about China.
    My question is how soon can China bring up oil from
    the South China Seas where they are busy claiming
    sovereignty over huge amounts of territory. Yes, it
    could be ten years or so - maybe much less if
    they decide to begin drilling despite the world's
    condemnation. Their building of islands could cause
    a confrontation between China vs. Japan, Korea, Philippines,
    Vietnam and the U.S. Just another thing to factor in
    when trying to find a bottom to this sell-off.

  • Clean Energy Fuels - Time To Go Long  [View article]
    It's been ugly for me also. I got in around $22 and bailed around $18. BUT! I still like the concept.They have built out a number of routes across the country so that 18-wheelers can easily find refueling stations. Once oil recovers - and in my nearly 60 years of investing in energy it always does CLNE should do very well.
    SO, only two questions.
    1) Can CLNE survive?
    2) How long for the energy recovery?

    If CLNE can survive until this mess resolves itself then, I suspect, prices in the $3 range should be a slam dunk buy!

    NOTHING CURES LOW PRICES LIKE LOW PRICES.
    NOTHING CURES HIGH PRICES LIKE HIGH PRICES.
    THAT'S ABOUT 100% TRUE FOR ALL COMMODITIES.
    UNFORTUNATELY ONE CANNOT PUT A TIME FOR THE CHANGE
    BUT AS SURE AS GOD MADE LITTLE GREEN APPLES RERVERSES
    WILL OCCUR AND FREQUENTLY FASTER THEN ONE CAN IMAGINE.

  • Record losing streak for silver ETF  [View news story]
    OK DOUG.
    I GET SOME OF MY STUFF FROM BLANCHARD.
    HERE ARE TODAY'S PRICES FROM THEM.
    I may not have been clear. My only concern was about Eagles vs rounds. EAGLES are minted by the government while rounds can be minted by anyone and perhaps not be as advertised. But, with Blanchard and other coin companies, silver rounds generally are 10% cheaper then "Eagles" supposedly containing 1 oz of pure silver. How they compare with yours, I have no idea. There are several other companies I use but the prices are all within a couple of cents of each other.

    Reverse - 1 oz Silver American Eagle 2015
    1 oz Silver American Eagle
    2015 | .999 | $17.46


    Obverse - 1 oz Silver American Eagle (Dates Our Choice)
    Reverse - 1 oz Silver American Eagle (Dates Our Choice)
    1 oz Silver American Eagle
    (Dates Our Choice) | .999 | $17.46


    Obverse - 1 oz Silver Canadian Maple Leaf (Dates Our Choice)
    Reverse - 1 oz Silver Canadian Maple Leaf (Dates Our Choice)
    1 oz Silver Canadian Maple Leaf
    (Dates Our Choice) | .999 | $16.68


    Obverse - 1 oz Silver Round (Dates and Designs Vary)
    Reverse - 1 oz Silver Round (Dates and Designs Vary)
    1 oz Silver Round
    (Dates and Designs Vary) | .999 | $15.69

  • Record losing streak for silver ETF  [View news story]
    I'm conflicted here.
    The rounds are about 10% cheaper with the dealer I use and I have some, including silver rounds put out by the "SUNSHINE MINE" years ago. BUT! The Eagles are "Legal Tender" and have, yeah, "right", the full faith and backing" etc. I started collecting silver dollars back in the mid 40's as a kid. This market has had some real big up moves and - like now - down moves. All the time I've been putting a few bucks away on a regular basis. Don't know where it will be in the next few years but seriously doubt it will be here.

    Unfortunately, I haven't, like many of you, done well with this company. Fortunately, I don't have much but am looking at adding. Can anyone tell me what the latest cost per ounce was anticipated at being? When buying into these very speculative stocks, I double the cost they say they can produce for and if that seems profitable I may buy.
    Thanks.

  • Commodities Today: After Calling Distribution Cuts For MLPs, What Now?  [View article]
    anarchist,
    The CEO of Core Labs said a few days ago that he also thinks crude will be $70 by years end. He used figures similar to ones Boone Pickens used. Year end? That's only 5 months away. But it will sure help me if it can get back there.

  • Commodities Today: After Calling Distribution Cuts For MLPs, What Now?  [View article]
    I really dropped the ball! I have a rule to get out if a holding drops by 15%.
    I didn't for LNCO and VNR and am really in a tough spot with both of them. . BUT, and I have no way of believing this feeling is right, I really believe the bottom is near for oil and NG price declines. "TIGHT OIL" from the shale plays has a high depletion rate. Off-shore drilling has collapsed. Yes, land drilling has shown a few extra rigs working but certainly not enough to replace what is being lost through depletion. And it's been reported that the SAUDIS are prepared to cut back a little on production. OPEC has been pumping full-out. I was surprised that oil has dropped $10 in the last month, but still believe $60 - $70 by DEC. But obviously, I've been wrong recently.

  • Commodities Today: Continue To Avoid Precious Metals  [View article]
    Two years ago I thought SLV hit a bottom around $25 and I started to nibble. Wrong move then - so where is the bottom now? Or is it close enough to start buying or wait until it moves up $2 - $3 dollars??? I've done well with silver over the last 60 years but the last 3 years have really spooked me. I really don't understand but I don't buy into the manipulation theory either.

  • Linn Energy Death Watch Count Down  [View article]
    CROOKINESS IS IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER. Just look back in history. The Egyptians killed their brothers to claim the title. Greece with Alexander did the same by maybe killing his father. Romans killed their mothers and sisters to retain the thrown. Now today, the guy gets to work and takes home a company pen. What a crook - wouldn't you say? I just get sick of all the finger pointing at business and people that are trying to help others out by posting their opinions. Next time you call in sick and stay home for a "mental health day" wouldn't that be considered a form of being crooked? Just wondering and "venting" at all the bad-mouthing going on sometimes on these boards. The guy is putting up his "Best Faith Opinion?

  • Linn Energy Death Watch Count Down  [View article]
    >>> Until then, any comments about Linn's future will be speculation. <<<
    EXACTLY!
    Remember, Hedgeye bad-mouthing along with Barrons because of a SEC investigation which, frankly was bogus, but which drove the price down. This is not to say management did not have some responsibility because of Berry - why anyone would want to risk so much with a business in California is beyond me. A major energy company last week said they were exiting the California market because of ridiculous regulations.
    All that being said, I personally think that LNCO would have been $5 -$8 higher had the poor info from Hedge-eye and Barrons not been pushed by shortsellers. I have nothing against short-sellers unless they hype their positions with lies. As it turns out the position of both the above mentioned companies has been proven to be wrong since the SEC has withdrawn - but the damage to LINE and LNCO has been done. At least that's my personal opinion and I still continue to reinvest the dividends.

  • Natural Gas: Expect A Reality Check From Natural Gas E&Ps At Q2 Reporting  [View article]
    A. Farmer,

    The U.S. is exporting NG to both Mexico and Canada with exports to Mexico expected to continue to rise. And yes LNG exports will increase but the loading facilities need to be completed. D wants to export from the East Coast but is having difficultly getting permitted - after about 5 years so far. The D port would be a great boon for Marcellus NG.

  • Commodities Today: Opportunities In Oil Stocks As Questions Arise About Europe Approving Latest Mergers  [View article]
    OIL GETTING HIT BAD TODAY.
    BECAUSE OF IRAN? All it would take is one successful attack on a Saudi loading facility or refinery . So much bad monetary news, Puerto Rico, Greece, China.
    None by themselves are that troubling but together? For myself, hard assets, oil, ng, metals, especially silver. Who knows? I don't think even the SHADOW knows anymore.

  • The Fed Provided A Short-Term Boost To SLV  [View article]
    >>>High Frequency Trading<<<
    I LOVE HIGH FREQUENCY TRADING. From a practical standpoint it only effects a few very large cap stocks because the margin is so low - less then a penny and they require high volume. But one always hears this stuff. Remember when commissions were 5%?? And quotes were in 1/8th. And people were complaining that these changes would ruin the market? Remember? Technology has really dropped the cost. Now one can trade for a set price for any number of stocks - price $7 dollars a trade and sometimes less -from a practical standpoint. But anyway if one feels that the markets are manipulated then why would he/she be inclined to trade in them? Stay out and find a different place to put your hard earned money.
