  • Encana aims to raise up to C$861M from PrairieSky spinoff [View news story]
    This is on the high end of what was initially estimated and should bode well for the shares even though the stock is down today. Suttles has the opportunity to turn ECA into a real cash cow and it seams that he is working on making that happen. JMO

  • New Keystone XL bill backed by 56 senators [View news story]
    The best way to secure some progress for America while Obama is in the Oval office is to have the democrats loose the senate majority. Obama can then be told that it is time for him to learn to play ball on keystone and many other issues. It is unfortunate but his blinding lefty ideology has meant that he has been incapable of working out the deals that would have allowed real progress in America under his watch!!

  • New Keystone XL bill backed by 56 senators [View news story]
    This is nothing more than politicking by the democrats that signed this bill as they are all from states that benefit from Keystone and worried about what Obama's punting will to to them come election time. They know you need 60 to really get anywhere in the Senate and so 56 does not matter. Voters need to realize that any vote for a democrat is a vote for Obama and ignore the politicking!!!!!

  • magicJack Hitting Headwinds Of Slowing Growth And Competitive Pressures [View article]
    The issues with magic jack have more to do with the networks and service providers than the device. Mine has been very reliable for 3 years now. If you go with the cheapo internet service, then you will have problems - not only with magic jack but with other devices/ services as well.

  • magicJack Hitting Headwinds Of Slowing Growth And Competitive Pressures [View article]
    First of all- I do not invest much in tech stocks - only if I come across what I consider a special situation. For me its an industry that is changing far to quickly and the valuations are to rich. Having said that, I have had a magic jack for 5 years now and at first the technology was a little flaky but over the last 3 years, my magic jack has worked very well. I use it as a 2nd line and for all long distance with no complaints as it has had a high level of reliability. Those who have problems with the device can usually trace that problem to a poor quality ISP. Anyway - I will not buy the stock as I do not invest much in Tech but I will keep my magic jack as I am quite happy with it.

  • Encana sells east Texas properties for $530M [View news story]
    more deals to come with ECA as management works on refocusing the company and increasing profitability. ECA is very asset rich with lots of room for increased profitability.

  • More on Ford Q1: EPS misses, net profit drops 39%, shares sink 2% [View news story]
    No Mantra - Ive dealt with with Toyota/ Honda and GM, Chrysler and Ford and there is no contest - The NA manufacturers loose hands down any way you want to compare them. On a profitability/ market share basis, short term the the trend sometimes goes in favor of the NA manufacturers but long term, the trend is quite clear and again - NA manufacturers loose hands down.

  • More on Ford Q1: EPS misses, net profit drops 39%, shares sink 2% [View news story]
    Will North American Auto Manufacturers ever learn??? Quality and reliability are the keys that lead to better profitability and it looks like poor quality and poor reliability are still engrained within the NA manufacturers. Honda and Toyota got to be smiling!!

  • Keystone route ruling should be overturned, Nebraska governor says [View news story]
    All the delays amount to BS that is thrown in the way of progress by a vocal minority that will do anything to push their will on the people. Obama is just a puppet on a spring that this minority is pulling. This pipeline should have been approved long ago.

  • The Battle For The Sun (Or Who Will Collect The Rental Income For Solar Energy In The 21st Century?) [View article]
    If it is anything like the disaster that the Ontario government created with their push for solar and green energy, then the number of jobs will be very few, low pay with most of them going to China and elsewhere and the tax payer/ rate payer carrying the brunt of the costs in increased electricity bills. Nothing against solar as long as it pays its own way. If looking for a model, absolutely do not look at Ontario.

  • Keystone XL delay will raise costs, but RBC says share weakness not material [View news story]
    did anyone really expect Obama to make a quality decision here???? NOT. It fits the bill for his term in office. No decision or poor decision about sums up what you get out of Obama. A project that should have been approved years ago gets another punt. The people need to send him a message during the mid terms.
