  • Why I Would Sell GE [View article]
    Why I wouldn't sell GE? I paid $7 per share and dividends will pay for the low price paid, while the rest is money in the bank.

  • Chesapeake Reports Major Q3 Losses [View article]
    CHK needs to clean house. Aubrey McClendon, his management team and their BOD should be fired. One big click protecting each other. This is another ATP management scam to self serve the insiders at the expense of shareholders. What a pitiful organization.

  • GE: Flying High [View article]
    Most of us the own GE stock knows that the company owns and most follow the company. As for breaking the company into smaller companies, I'm not for it. However, GE should have sold off GE Capital a long time ago.

  • A Double Bind Conundrum. Ivanhoe Energy Is A Short [View article]
    I see how your write up went over like a lead balloon with all IVAN shareholders. I just wanted to say I'm glad to see someone finally take the initiative to tell it like it is regarding this company and stock. Far too many writers on SA have provided a Disneyland fantasy land love story where everyone becomes rich, driving a new Mercedes and purchasing winter chalet in Aspen's winter wonderland with their new found wealth. With sugar plums are dancing in investors heads, it was about time for a reality check.

    Anyone who understands the energy business knows to stay away from this stock because you will lose your investment. IVAN has lured hundreds of millions of dollars from investors promising GTL contracts with Qatar to HTL operational facilities in Iraq that never transpired and preaching "shareholder value", that has yet to been seen. IVAN management team have destroyed investor confidence while filling their pockets with millions of dollars in salaries and bonuses.
    It is apparent, Institutions and Fund managers are refusing to continually fund this under achiever that has done nothing for anyone other than the management team themselves.
    Thank you for telling it like it is! I like an honest report!

  • In the wake of the deadly oil train derailment in Quebec, Canada is taking steps to toughen its train rules and the U.S. may be close behind, as the U.S. government announces a review of hazardous materials transport and sets a public meeting for next month. Retrofitting older tank cars is "unnecessary" - read expensive - suppliers say. U.S. crude-by-rail shipments surged to ~234K carloads in 2012 from 9,500 in 2008. [View news story]
    GE owns the largest privately owned fleet of railcars in North America. They lease the railcars out to all kinds of businesses.
    They do not own or lease hazardous chemical tankcars due to risk and possibility of massive lawsuits. Some of their cars were in the Quebec wreck but not the oil or gasoline type that exploded. GE sold off all there high liability cars back in the '80's. I was PM at GE Rail in the mid 80's.

  • Could BHP Billiton Be Headed For A Fall? [View article]
    The only way BHP will tank is when the world economy heads into a global recession and everything goes with it. BHP is very diversified and best of breed. This is why I purchased the stock years ago and held until the end of my life.

  • Ivanhoe Energy - A Light At The End Of The Tunnel [View article]
    The doc has a degree in dentistry and failed to advise that any partner would be funding any project for at least 90% or more due to the fact that Ivanhoe Energy is can't fund any projects. Therefore, a partner would want full control of any venture because they are taking full financial risk. In other words, IVAN would receive only a small percentage of any profit earned. Say 20 cents or less on the dollar.
    So the value of this company, would be less than most people realize.
    Secondly, IVAN sold all their income properties and have no more income at all. This company is one I would never invest in due to the fact IVAN has destroyed all shareholder value years ago. It wasn't too long ago that IVAN management offered shares for $3.00 and today the stock is trading at 50 cents. I have posted this company is a bad investment on every story to date and it looks like people will continue to lose money and listen to a dentist that leads people into a house of pain.

  • T. Boone Pickens' Extremely Profitable Energy Bets [View article]
    Boone really blew DYN bad. I'm even surprised to see it listed after the reverse split that killed investor due to poor management in Houston. Very surprised indeed.

    Sandridge also has a huge debt load of nearly $3 B and that is over the top in todays market place. I believe he's part of the good ole "local" network that owns shares in the company.

  • ATP Oil and Gas: Buy, Sell or Hold? The Answer Is 'Yes' [View article]
    You are right. The huge set back was BP and their failure to control the blow-out. We were riding high before that but like you I'm also long.
    The permit issue is the key. Thanks, good job!!

  • Carbonate Triangle's Athabasca Investment Guide: Sunshine Oilsands Edition [View article]
    I grew-up in Alberta and it never amazes me to see everyone on the tar sand bandwagon in the US. I worked at Suncor (the original site) and Syncrude during the first build. We all knew that one day, when the price of crude oil went way up, the investments would roll in and benefit the province. However, big oil took over and Canada's PM has sold out Canada's natural resources to foreign investment. The Chinese and Malaysians are getting ready to pump to West coast of Canada and sell it or take it to their country. I strongly believe Canada's PM selling off Canada's NON-renewal natural resources is treason. If you want to make money in the tar sands, your best bet is to buy the leaders not companies like Ivanhoe that is facing delisting again. In today's market easy money will not be made with inexperienced companies with technology they could never sell or even give away.

  • Carbonate Triangle's Athabasca Investment Guide: Ivanhoe Energy Edition [View article]
    We've heard it all before. Many investors don't realize how traumatic the next 4-5 years will actually be. IVAN has done nothing in the last 15 years with no accomplishments. Now, with no income coming in the door, it's all or nothing. Your report was well done but the this game is played in the details. A game that is likely lost if you really know what must be accomplished in the next 4-5 years. Most don't but I do. Funny how a 80 cent company, that is after 1-3 reverse split, is going to miraculously pull this off. If you only knew people!

    Anyone to sell GE will regret it. Far too much BS on the company by everyone and their brother - and they were all WRONG!

    Friedland did nothing for IVAN and is a complete and total failure in the energy business. Better he stays away and sticks to his expertise instead. I wonder if he's still consuming dope these days?

    Fat chance. The guys been wrong all along regarding this stock and he's better off not admitting anything. Anyone that's in the know of oil/gas industry sure wouldn't have stuck out like he did. Creditability is earned but I don't see any here, none.
