  • Yamana Gold Announced Today That It Is Selling Shares To Cut Debt [View article]
    Agreed. I blew it getting into this dog. I was up nicely over just a couple of days and now the offering. They appear to mismanaging the co right into the ground.

    Now I'm on the fence about whether to take a loss or try to ride it out a bit. How much patience can larger shareholders have???

  • Yamana Gold to raise up to C$300M via 49M-share offering [View news story]
    Reading the Reuters' version of the news... makes me wonder.

    Is it possible that AUY is gonna pay that fine with this share issuance??? I mean...think about it. The amount they are raising (USD) is about the SAME amount as the fine (~$250 million). Still not saying dilution here is good, but wondering if the market looked at it that way, maybe the pps would bounce back sooner(?)

  • Everything Has Changed: Oil, Saudi Arabia, And The End Of OPEC [View article]
    An interesting read-I'll admit-but after some thought, I can't help scratch my head over the following:

    The article appears to be saying the Saudis are more interested in decreasing the collective carbon footprint (than making $) and are willing to take whatever price they can get for whatever oil they can extract NOW???

    I apologize for such a simplification, but that doesn't ring true with me. The article sounds more like a wishful thinking scenario that could have been titled 'Can't We All Just Move Beyond Oil?'

  • Yamana Gold to raise up to C$300M via 49M-share offering [View news story]
    Agree completely, Jerry. I jumped in around $4.30 on Friday after seeing a bullish technical set up and now this.

    Nothing like dilution to spoil the party.

  • 2 Tobacco Stocks For 2015 [View article]
    <I sold out in December due to the fact that I feel
    the strong dollar will prohibit PM from increasing the dividend this year AND
    cause a decrease in earnings.>

    Earnings may suffer, but if they didn't increase the dividend, it would be a red flag the size of the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man (Ghostbusters). PM would be in the $60s within a week if they kept the div the same yoy. Mgmt knows this and also understands that that would be (nearly) admitting defeat if they couldn't/didn't raise the div.

    One day that may happen, but not this year...or next....or the next.

  • GE cut to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank as earnings headwinds prevail [View news story]
    Serves them right. Grossly mismanaged considering their incredible 'backlog'. Not raising the div more was a bad sign imo for their short-medium term future.

  • 5 Red Flags Retail Stock Investors Should Not Ignore [View article]
    Interest rates are still the #1 issue in my mind, barring black swans of course. How the Fed goes about rate increases (or not) will largely lead the market.

    That said, there will be volatility as the bull market continues to age and the back forth over both the cause and the consequences of low oil prices.
