  • Vale: Nowhere To Hide  [View article]
    bhp is even risky because of the low oil prices they face.

    the Brazil government needs to protect this company through these times until things stabilize just like the fed government did for banks. it's in Brazil's best national interests.

  • Goldman Sachs Is Right, Wait Before Buying ConocoPhillips  [View article]
    regardless of the auther or GS and all the crap out there, step and look at EIA report:


    If OPEC and Russia cut back production, they can bring up the price from $40 to $60, however the more they cut back, the more shale fracking will come online at those prices. Now with the US allowing exporting., how much can US realistically export out of Texas to the global market? how of that can COP export in addition to their other areas?

    If $60 is cash neutral right now, they need to figure out how to cut to $30 dollars a barrel. COP will continue to lose, and my position is now a sunk cost thanks to OPEC and Russia.

    The biggest losses will be any exposure to capital expenditures in Venezuela, as their whole countries debt will default first.

    Oil will slowly self adjust at the end of this year, but slowing go up to a new LRAS because of fracking technology. Growing nations would have to offset supply with increased demand, however that has not taken hold compared to the supply increase we keep seeing.

    Good luck... Shorting in the near term is fine, but long term investing should pay off in the strongest oil companies as the rebalance occurs, and when those shorts cover if your in long, if will be a fun ride. Bulls always crush eventually it is our human behavior.

  • ConocoPhillips - This Is Not Another 2003, It's Much Worse  [View article]
    They have cut their dividend immediately and preserve cash flow... Push their debt out as much as possible to 30 years... And cut costs anywhere they can, lean six sigma...

    If they have any room to work, they need to buy out E&P competitors in bankruptcy that are worse off financially that fail to increase their resources and eliminate competitors market share... Hopefully the smaller players don't all go chapter 11, and these companies are forced to liquidate to the bigger players, consolidate the industry and control market prices..

    brazil government needs to take a play out from the US and protect this company as a national interest like to big to fail... if the govt ensures capital and cash flow with zero interest debt gurantees they along with rio and bhp with win... this is mostly australias fault to trying to squeeze the minors...

    China's appetite cant take this excess supply... this is a war of attrition... need to look at rio and bhp and vale at who will rise by 2020 for some nice long term gains!

  • Intel: What To Expect From Earnings Today  [View article]
    I dont expect much either, they stated an increase in revenue, and that shot the stock up to it current price.

    $800 touchscreen lenevo powered by windows and intel. that is a high end tablet killer. my Ipad3 is a glorified recipe book for the kitchen.

    cant wait for that 14nm fanless chip, thin and light laptops are on their way.

  • What Intel's Capital Allocation To Shareholders Is Telling Us About Intel's Long-Term Growth Prospects  [View article]
    I had to check out of INTC after flat revenue again reported along with shares in the high twenties, I have been waiting for 2 years to see growth in a mobile market that is now maturing and they still are not there.

    Is this a battle of bulge playing right now on INTC? Time will tell. Android Silver just got fired in INTC on the high mobile market for next years revenue reporting.
