  • SandRidge Mississippian Trust I: Valuation Compelling After The Correction  [View article]
    Not to beat a dead horse, but if anything has ever been in the hands of Tom Ward, I wouldn't own it. I have to side with Doug Johnson on this one. In a world where we have sub $90 oil, with production well below the official decline curve, I have to wonder when these wells die out. If I wanted to lower my investment risks and try to get a decent return, I'd go with a muni bond fund. I wouldn't sleep well at night owning this.

    The papayamon will also never read such tripe, because it has caused the papayamon to refer to said self in third person. The papayamon will talk to the papaymon in the mirror when he brushes the papayamon's teeth with the papayamon's toothbrush.

  • Lower Oil Prices Could Lead To The Shale Debt Bubble Bursting  [View article]
    I think this is something to consider for the producers who have tried to grow by racking up debt - and that's a lot of companies. Low oil prices and higher interest costs will create the perfect storm. Look at what has happened to coal. Those few who didn't take on massive amounts of debt will be in position to profit from the spikes as well as purchase assets at fire sale prices.

    I wouldn't touch the likes of HK or SD, even at these beaten down prices. I think it gets worse before it gets better. And yes, we'll see huge energy price spikes once the production bubble pops . In the meantime, we will party like it's 1999.

    This leads me to stash my money (for the most part) in financial, pharmaceutical and semiconductor companies. Cheaper energy (for a short time) will put a few extra dollars in consumer's pockets. I expect the U.S. economy to benefit in the short run.

    At today's prices, I like UPL. Next month, it could be a good deal cheaper to accumulate.

    Please, do we have to deal with yet ANOTHER author who refers to himself in third person? It makes anyone look like a kook, dude. That weakens any argument you may have had. A very weak article, weakened further by your comments.

    Every company has a few SA contributors who continually prognosticate doom. Of course there will need to be more manufacturing capacity added. MU is in an enviable position.

  • Why I'm Buying Up Coal Stocks  [View article]
    I' m holding a little BTU at $11.35 and a little WLT as $2.28. WLT will move on a rumor and is most certainly priced for a buyout. BTU is a value pick with 20% upside by spring.

    What's gone on in the coal industry was unfathomable 2 years ago.

  • Are Commodities Waving Red Flags For Stocks?  [View article]
    For what it's worth, if gas drops , that effectively puts $$ in everyone's pocket.

    This stimulates demand because the vast majority of people will spend every dime on something else. Not good for the investors in oil producers, but good for everyone else. That is until the next oil spike. In the meantime, it's time to buy oil producers who aren't up to their eyeballs in debt.

    agreed. this is a bottomless pit, considering the stock offering backstopped by ross and co at $5. Boone Pickens was the smart one.

  • Rite Aid's Recent Sell-Off Provides Opportunity For Long-Term Value Investors With $6.60 Fair Value Price Target  [View article]
    The saving grace for consumer spending is that energy costs are going to be cheaper, which puts $$ in everyone's pocket, especially those who spend every cent they get. This will help retailers, and even drug stores.

  • Barron's And Goldman Sachs Say Buy Bank Of America  [View article]
    Awesome comment, absolutely on point, and unfortunately to be deleted by the "editors", if we call them that. For the life of me, I cannot figure out why SA degrades their site by allowing such nonsensical inane prattle to be repeated ad nauseum. No specific content, just unsupported allegations of fraud, fraud and more fraud... which adds NOTHING to the discussion.

  • Current Valuations Remain Attractive As Rite Aid Looks To Support Long-Term Growth  [View article]
    I would agree that I am over invested in this stock, relative to my net worth. However, that's my style of investing, which has worked well for me. I look for a good fundamental story with beaten down shares, and then sell once I get a decent pop to an amount I'm more comfortable holding. I really like the demographic trend here. RAD could also be a buyout candidate or have an activist investor take a position. Any decent news will bring us back to $6. Selling 1/2 takes me down to selling the balance at $4.50 without losing money. I think there's double digits in the future here.

    RAD is doing many things right. They are remodeling approximately 10% of the stores this year alone. The margin issues will be addressed as they have a huge footprint that will be attractive to many pharmaceutical manufacturers. Good luck to all longs, may the shorts roast in hell :).
