  • U.S. imposes new conditions on Keystone XL after pipeline defects found [View news story]
    Just another red hearing by the Obama administration. These defects are tested for and repaired before the pipeline is put into service. Same as for any other construction project.

  • Bloomberg: Encana CEO surprises with makeover in one year [View news story]
    ECA is a technology leader when it comes to drilling and has also had good results at lowering costs of drilling. They are a very asset rich company and so Settles has a lot to work with - he has just started and so it is still early in the game with a lot of up side potential. . JMO and long ECA

  • More on Encana: Q1 profit +192%, realized gas prices surge [View news story]
    Encana had very good results and its direction bodes well for the future. The stock was initially up over a dollar and is now up only 35 cents. looks like the market is in sell on news mode.

  • Deeper Problems Than Data Breach For Target [View article]
    One stop shopping - that had to be a sick joke or just showed extreme ignorance of the competition that exists in Canada on his part. Their are 10 other competitors from Walmart to Costco that are way closer to one stop shopping that Targets is. Get rid of the guy and his team and hire a Walmart Canada exec. and team and they may actually learn something.

  • Deeper Problems Than Data Breach For Target [View article]
    In Canada Targets just do not get it!! They have a grocery section that does not have fresh produce an meat which makes it a non starter for most Canadians and is why it is always empty. A lot of Canadians also are familiar with Targets U.S. merchandise and prices and yet these are not available in Canada which again makes Targets a non starter for a lot of Canadians. As 80% of the Canadian market is within 100 miles of the US boarder, I do not know why they can not stock the same products and supply stores out of common distribution centers or networks.
    Targets in Canada has not differentiated its self from the competition, is short on products and has higher prices so things do not look to good.

  • 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.
