  • Do You Seriously Own Freeport-McMoRan? [View article]
    Again with stupid comments about how long it takes for volatile stocks to recover....look at the past history of FCX it may take a few years, it may take months and FCX could go to 0 next year. It's more probable that FCX will return to its 200 moving average in a few months. Supply and demand are not the only forces that influence stock, gold and oil prices. What global HF do you work for? I need to keep my distance from them!

    His opinion as a global HF employee leads people to believe his poor analysis. In my opinion it's a lot trash that needs corrected.

    You have school to pay for, so my guess is you have no means to short anything. You have learned to cash in publishing half truths to scrape up some beer money. Try politics you can make a lot more money!

    Did you bother to look at how this stock has rocketed from these levels in the past? Not once but several times. Yes, the purchase of oil and gas was poorly timed. Did you predict that before it happened? Copper is not as over supplied as you believe. Freeport is one of the lowest cost producers in the world. The CAPEX spent in the last 2 years was not wasted, it will lower the cost of production and help Freeport avoid selling assets at these prices. Oil, copper and gas will not continue to sell at these prices for years. When prices recover, as they historically always have, Freeport might be seen as wise but risky investment that most people just could not see. I will hold mine and wait for long term rewards.

    I think this disscusion clearly shows the potential profit may justify the risk in FCX.

  • Freeport-McMoRan: Buy The Dip To Profit From Copper [View article]
    Porter Stansberry and Ron Paul spew the same mantra....buy canned goods and lots of ammo for the End of the World as we Know it, after the great financial collapse....in which case it will not matter where your money is invested. On the other hand copper and energy could recover as has happened several times in the last 20 years and FCX could survive and even prosper.

  • Freeport-McMoRan: Buy The Dip To Profit From Copper [View article]
    At last cool head that understands the NPV of Freeport"s unequaled assets. I know it looks like the end for this company given today's copper and oil prices but the future for the stock price is impressive if copper follows the path as articulated in this article.

  • Why Freeport McMoRan's Upcoming Energy Spin-Off Won't Help Shareholders [View article]
    This author needs to a lot more research! I bought FCX in 1997 as a gold play. I will admit this is, was, and will continue to be a very volitile stock. The management, Jim Bob in particular are risk takers and almost always surviving bad circumstances and eventually reward shareholders who stay the coarse. Copper, oil amd nat gas are assets that are sure to recover if past history is any guide. I have watched this stock rocket up and come screaming down on at least 4 cycles in the last 20 years and this time is no different. Not many expected to see oil plunge the way it did and with the events in the Middle East being what they are, I for one would not bet on oil staying in a $40 to $60 range for a long period of time. If world economy pushes up Copper could easily see $4 again and while gold is not the FCX player it once was, how many mines like Grasberg have been found in the last decade?

  • Freeport McMoran not likely to sell assets, CEO says [View news story]
    I plan to stay long unless there is no hope for recovery....I still think the world will see shortages in copper and eventually oil and this stock has the potential to come roaring back to fresh highs. Not next week, but in the next few years.

  • What To Expect From Freeport-McMoRan's Earnings Report [View article]
    Time will tell. The stock that I Still own is all from profit that I took before the split when I sold my original investment at $120 per share.

    Anyone with half a brain can badmouth Any commodities oriented corporation as volatile as Freeport is. Predicting a lower cost for commodities is a sure bet. In the current environment they will surely go lower and will surely go higher.

    It's always possible we will have a total and complete financial meltdown and the dollar will lose 95% of its value and we will all be standing in bread lines for a cup of soup and a crust of bread. In which case it won't really matter what stock you have invested in or when you take your profits.

    I believe it's much more likely that oil, gas and copper will remain in demand for decades to come and Freeport will survive the short-term obstacles and continue to pay handsome rewards to those who stay the course. Investors like Warren Buffett buy and hold stocks for the long term and they have proven to be very successful.

    If you know what the future prices of the most important commodities sans food why do you waist time telling all who read these comments....You should be too busy making millions with highly levereged futures, options and derivitives. Lets see some specific stratagies and lets judge just how profitable you would be with actual facts instead of wild speculation. I think holding on for the long term beats your guesses over 2 years.
