  • TransCanada touts carbon reduction programs in latest Keystone push [View news story]
    The issue for me is not one of dealing with CO2 or pollution as dealing with these things is positive as long as its done in a common sense way. Common sense tells you that this world will need oil for a long time and that you do not shoot yourself in the foot by turning against your friends and a secure source of suply that is focused on environmental improvement. Common sense seems be sadly lacking in the oval office!

  • TransCanada touts carbon reduction programs in latest Keystone push [View news story]
    Obama and his administration are just led around by the green clowns and lefties that have highjacked the Democrats which means that regardless of what common sense may dictate, he will never pass Keystone XL. As such we wait till 2016 when he will be history. In the meantime the industry has found numerous other ways to get the product to the Texas refineries and elsewhere in America - every thing from rail to alternative pipelines.
    Reality is that Keystone XL is the safest and most efficient way to get this oil to market but Obama seems to care nothing about reality and everything about those who feed big money to the Democratic party.

  • The Tragedy Of Puerto Rico, America's Very Own Greece [View article]
    The sufferings in Greece and Puerto Rico are self inflicted. You can make all sorts of excuses but at the end of the day, the local governments are the ones that made the decisions that got them into this mess.

  • ArcelorMittal: Why Investors Should Not Rule Out A Turnaround [View article]
    Steel has always been a cyclical business and we are now at the bottom of the cycle. With MT, you have the biggest steel company in the world with a lot of geographic diversification. They have restructured European operations and are in the process of doing the same in North America. When the cycle turns, MT should do well. Long MT.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Greece On Verge Of Default [View article]
    With the exception of Greece and Puerto Rico, all the others are moving in the right direction. Greece and Puerto Rico both need a kick in the rear end so that all the other get a very clear message. With the Euro, regardless of which way Greece goes, it is in trouble and a major re work of the rules will be required. To easy on Greece and its over for the Euro as no one will want to hold it long term as there will be a line up of others looking for easy terms. Regardless, the current situation shows that their are major problems with the Euro and major structural reforms are required if it is to survive in the long run. Once Greece is over, the real work starts for them.

  • Movement detected in Greece negotiations [View news story]
    Giving to much to Greece means Euro = toast. The events to date already mean that without a major rework of the rules Euro will be toast regardless if which way Greece goes.

    LNG exports are a big part of the future for natural gas in North America and this bodes well for TransCanada.

  • Natural Gas Exports Ramping Sooner Than Expected [View article]
    Note that TransCanada has adjusted its shipping rates to make Western Canadian gas more competitive with US gas.This will not stop US shipments into Canada but will slow them down. Mexico is a growing market but also has its limitations. The key to natural gas is growing American consumption as it replaces other fuels and the LNG export terminals which should really drive demand. At current prices, most gas producers are in survival mode but this will change as increased demand and stricter environmental requirements start to have an impact. I would be looking at producers like Encana and Chesapeake as even if the price of gas takes a little longer to turn around, these players should still be in business in the long run.
