  • InterOil's Jedi Mind Trick: These Aren't The Deals You Were Looking For [View article]
    SEC Alleges ‘Systemic’ Lapses in Oversight at CBOE. The SEC fined CBOE Holdings Inc. $6 million for alleged breakdowns in its oversight functions, which the agency called the first such penalty.

    The trading in focus on CBOE involved one of its biggest clients, optionsXpress, a large broker-dealer owned by Charles Schwab Corp., according to the people familiar with the probe. On Friday, an SEC judge fined optionsXpress $2 million for allegedly violating rules prohibiting so-called naked short selling.

  • Pacific Rubiales, Other Indicators Confirm Majors Embroiled In Bidding War For InterOil's Assets [View article]
    THE CULLINAN DIAMOND:
    The Cullinan is the largest diamond ever discovered in history. Found in the Premier mine in South Africa owned by Thomas Cullinan, the diamond was discovered by superintendent Captain Frederick Wells on January 26, 1905 while making his daily inspection.

    A crystal caught light on the shaft wall; it was only nine meters from the surface. Thinking the miners were playing a joke, Wells took it for a piece of broken glass and pried it out with a pocketknife.

    It turned out that the uncut stone was a perfectly clear and colorless diamond weighing 3,106 carats (621.2 grams or 1.37 pounds)and was was 37/8 inches long, 21/4 inches wide and 25/8 inches high (twice the size of any other diamond ever found).

    Named for Cullinan, the diamond was sold to the Transvaal Government for 150,000 pounds and Wells received 3,500 pounds as a reward.

    The massive stone was purchased by the Government of the Transvaal for a mere £150,000 (of which 60% was returned as a tax on diamond mining) and presented to King Edward the VII as a gift to celebrate the granting of responsible government to South Africa on November 9, 1907, for his 66th birthday

    The Cullinan is remarkably not only for its size but also because it is near flawless internally.

    The diamond was fashioned into 9 large diamonds and 96 brilliants. The largest stone, also known as the 'Great Star of Africa', is the largest known colourless diamond gem and is a pear shaped stone mounted in the scepter of the British Crown Jewels, and now resides in the Tower of London.

    Every now and then we come across a geological formation hat can not be fully appreciated UNTIL it is ultimately released from it's humble residence.

  • New Evidence Questions Whether InterOil Actually Received A Bid From A Supermajor For Its Asset Selldown [View article]
    And that was the statement made by Henry Alsdorf at the 2012 Annual Shareholders meeting. Paraphrasing: "with all the distractions that surround a project as complicated and diverse as this the one constant that remains is the fundamental underlying fact that we have a tremendous asset owned by shareholders at a very attractive price". "The fact that the location of this asset is so ideally close in proximity to the eventual destination customer is a very special situation". "Focus on the asset".

    With Seeking Alpha permitting clearly baseless, distortions of the truth to be published consistently and without reservation I seriously begin to question the credibility of Seeking Alpha as a viable news source.

  • Microsoft Is Far Too Cheap To Ignore Any Longer [View article]
    My sentiments exactly.....Those that follow the crowd always have an a-hole in front of them. There is a better view when you follow your own vision.

  • Microsoft Is Far Too Cheap To Ignore Any Longer [View article]
    I like MSFT myself as I learned long ago that the average investor's perception of a company is quite similar to a driver navigating his way by watching out the rear view mirror. They rarely see what is ahead and come to conclusions long past when they would do anyone any good. Good market forecasting is done by individuals that think independently and not by consensus.

  • There's Something Not Quite Right About InterOil [View article]
    An interesting and truly applicable point:

    Wayne Andrews in 2001 was the Oil &Gas analyst for Raymond James. He did a research report on ULTRA PETROLEUM at $1.80/ share stating that he believed the stock was worth $100/ share. Ultra Petroleum moved from $1.80 in Sept. 2001 to $100/share in July 2008.

    Wayne Andrews during that period of growth for Ultra discovered Interoil. As an analyst employed by RJ he was restricted from purchasing stock that he did research on. Knowing that ....and having a conviction for the future of Interoil he tendered his resignation at RJ giving up a comfortable and predictable salary in exchange for the opportunity to invest in IOC. He put his own money where his skills had led him. This alone should be conviction enough for most investors to realize just how much Andrews believed in Interoil.

    A couple years later the appeal of the significant assets of InterOil came to the attention of Henry Aldorf who at that time was Vice President of Marathon Oil. Mr. Aldorf like Mr. Andrews resigned from Marathon to pursue a significantly greater opportunity at InterOil. Since Mr. Andrews arrival at IOC the company and it's stock price have grown substantially and both men feel that significantly more appreciation is ahead of them than they have experienced since they joined the company.
