  • Greece's Referendum [View article]
    The solution for Greece is a military dictatorship followed by sever financial reforms. No way a democracy will work for what needs to be done.

  • The Supreme Court And Coal [View article]
    ANR and ACI will benefit most from the ruling. Why? Most of the plants slated for retirement are in the CAPP coal region. If a few of those plant remain open potentially millions of additional tons of coal may be needed. ANR and ACI are in the CAPP region CLD and BTU are not. The local imbalance may even lift prices.

  • Cabinet: Greek banks to stay shut for six days; capital controls placed [View news story]
    This reminds me of a proxy fight over a failing company. My guess is the current government (management) is toast.

  • Major stock futures, euro tumble in reaction to Greece news [View news story]
    12% cash with a buy list ready. Let's hope for some violent action to move the options premiums up. I love how people want to buy insurance after their house is on fire. Nevertheless I like to see those arrogant snobs who think they run the world twist in the wind. If no one has figured it out yet we have way too much government. Too much regulation and too much debt. Maybe this crisis will correct that problem.

  • Cliffs Natural Resources: New Lows Ahead? [View article]
    "CLF forward EBITDA forecasts are quite dire, only $30-$50m per annum in 2016-2017."

    1st Qtr EBITDA was $384m and 1st Qtr is a bad weather quarter. Your forecast seems to be way off.

  • Cliffs Natural Resources: New Lows Ahead? [View article]
    Methinks CLF biggest issue is North American steel industry running below 75% capacity. Yet on the other hand many competing North American iron mines and facilities have shut down. I expect 2nd quarter revenues to be down yoy but not as bad as the market thinks. None of this matters, however, because the market will look to China iron ore contracts spot price to value CLF.

  • Coal Miners Under Pressure: Alpha Natural Resources Edition [View article]
    ANR should buy back as much debt as possible at pennies on the dollar. They would make more money than selling coal.

  • F.N.B. Corporation Stress Test Results Validate Current Capital Management Strategies [View article]
    FNB weathered the financial crisis well and came out stronger and bigger on the other side. In spite of making some very bad loans in Florida which were cleaned up very early on. Paid back TARP early as well. Doubled my money on this one and holding for the long term.

  • Why General Motors Cannot Afford To Ignore Cadillac Anymore [View article]
    Methinks the value of the dollar verses the yen makes a big difference in the profitability of Toyota verses GM. Toyota could not do anything right when the yen was 80 to the dollar and now can't do anything wrong 120 yen to the dollar. Too bad there wasn't a regulatory requirement that all international companies report financials in dollars. The we would have apples to apples to compare.
