  • Apple hire from Tesla points to continued car-team buildout [View news story]
    Easily $80 stock in 1 month. Very tired company. New phone release is lame. Stale.

  • Apple hire from Tesla points to continued car-team buildout [View news story]
    Apple is rotten. They are clearly running out of true innovation. Even have to sell bonds now. Losers.

    Not ever happening in our lives. Insurance companies will never allow it due to liability. It's just a way for Google and Apple to grab headlines and try to drive stock price. If you believe it's a good bet, then I have a Pinto you can have.

  • Crescent Point Energy Bites The Bullet And Cuts Its Dividend [View article]
    Well laid out Cameron. I note that Saxburg made no apologies for shifting gears (although his recent open market purchases in July may have been a bit of intended capitulation). My humble guess is this is an insurance play (particularly given the hedges that are in place through to next year): If oil hovers between $40 and $60, he has protected the balance sheet well. If something happens on the geopolitical stage that starts to drive the price of oil upwards (which will happen as Saudi Arabia can't survive with oil this low for too long...they are just added $32B in debt to keep them afloat), then CPG will take off like a rocket. It is a top oil play bar none...even if some feel cheated. It's just business.

  • U.S. Absorbs Clean Power Plan, Peabody Energy In Negative Campaign Mode [View article]
    If you re-read their press release, it does reference technologies that can help to minimize the resulting pollutants of burning coal. They are likely referring to scrubbers which are highly expensive to build...but perhaps there are other clean coal technologies in the works. There needs to be a middle ground between the coal industry finding workable solutions and gov't policies.

  • New China Coal Data Has Serious Implications For Peabody Energy [View article]
    Someone has to produce coal. It will be survival of the fittest and savvy. I would anticipate some possible consolidation as well.

  • Shock expressed as Greece has no new plan [View news story]
    As the head of the group of Commerce said, the political leadership put it on the people to decide vs. being leaders and making the decision for austerity. Not the President can simply blame it on the people. You get what you elect.

  • Tesla Has A Graphite Problem [View article]
    Yep. No "land or legal issues" with having it's source in Alabama vs. Nova Scotia or Quebec where they have to deal with getting past "special interests". A guy like Ramm doesn't join a company like Alabama Graphite without doing his DD...esp. when there are multiple players out there.

    Note that David Ramm, Chairman & CEO of BrightSource Energy joined the Board of Alabama Graphite recently. Brightsource is also a major investor in Tesla. :-)

  • Peabody Energy -- Reasons Why Investors Should Not Lose Hope, In 6 Charts [View article]
    BTU's survival and that of the coal industry in general will come primarily through two things: Coal companies going bankrupt, and consolidation.

  • Yingli Solar Drops A Bombshell [View article]
    The Chinese failing in solar isn't going to happen. They are some of the biggest polluters and to have one of their key companies go under will send a bad message, and they'll lose face on the world stage. My guess in the gov't will intervene and get it straightened out. As for North American shareholders, I believe they'll do OK over the LONG term...for the same reasons above.
