  • New Concept Energy +30% on asset sale rumors [View news story]
    My guess is that they issued the statement reaffirming their policy in response to all of the inquiries they were receiving. Press & shareholders were probably all over them in response to that kind of volume increase.

  • The Good ETF, Part 2 (Sort Of) [View article]
    Yes, it is very difficult to borrow shares to short. I know I've tried it. I think it has something to do with the huge demand for borrowing those.

  • Linn Energy: A Closer Look At LinnCo's 'Dividend' [View article]
    Right now with LNCO you will be paying no tax on the dividends received (well AMT not considered); which is even more favorable than LINE distributions in terms of taxes. I am surprised that LNCO trades at a discount to LINE.

    And with LINE, you will be paying taxes to various states if you own many units.

    I know last year I paid taxes to California, New Mexico, Kansas, North Dakota and about three others related to my MLP/LLP holdings.

    Unless you're short, then decay works in your favor. Now just try getting shares to short...

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    And interfere with Champions' League and normal European club play? I don't think so:

    "Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, the 2022 Qatar bid chairman, has stated, "the event has to be organized in June or July. We will have to take the help of technology to counter the harsh weather. We have already set in motion the process."

    And they've cut the number of stadiums to the minimum FIFA requirement of eight from their original bid that called for 12 stadiums to be constructed. This is from yesterday:

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    It will be late fall/early winter in Brazil during the 2014 WC, and the continental weather effect trumps equatorial location. You can see that average temperatures are lower in June in Rio (chart at the bottom of the page):

    The bad one will be when they play the WC in Qatar in 2022 in terms of high temperatures. It will be summer in Qatar and we will see 40+ degrees during some of the games. Money talks when it comes to FIFA:

    Even a brief stab at due diligence would have revealed the potential problems with TVIX. Its right on the summary sheet:, that took me less than a minute to find. And less than five minutes to read.

    Why did Steckbeck buy TVIX in the first place? He put down $50K for what exactly? A product he didn't know or understand and then he couldn't be bothered with taking five minutes to check the summary sheet. I notice Steckbeck doesn't comment on his reasons for the purchase. And he obviously took the time to do something on the Yahoo site that led him to buy shares.

    I think the author was very kind in his comments with regard to Mr. Steckbeck.

  • Nighthawk Energy Sees Triple-Digit Growth By Hitting Sweet Spots In The Denver-Julesburg Basin [View article]
    I never use market orders for OTC stocks. The regulations are not the same.

    I did finally get filled, but the process is always interesting. You won't see that kind of garbage with the major exchanges, HF guys not withstanding.
