  • Wall Street Breakfast: Greek Shares Nosedive As Market Reopens [View article]
    Uber is the future regardless of the taxi industry liking it or not. When places like New york City accept it (like they have) , then world class means learning to get along with Uber. Sure cities will put some rules in place like limiting the crazy fares that can be charged when its real busy but overall, Uber is here to stay.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Bailout Talks Around The World [View article]
    What we seem to have here is a case of "bad cop/ good cop" as the IMF and Europe ensure that all the required Greek reforms not only pass but are also implemented. The message to others - do not try to shake Europe or the IMF down as the consequences will be worse.

  • The 'Crushed' Pipeline Sector Will Be Back [View article]
    There is only one way to transport natural gas overland and that is by pipeline. There are a number of ways of transporting oil and liquids (barge, truck, rail and pipeline) but the preferred method because it is the cheapest and safest is pipeline. So what this really means is that the slowdown in energy will impact the pipelines least of all. Yes volumes may not grow as expected and maybe even shrink but the well capitalized companies with good balance sheets will keep paying the dividend and be there to resume growing when the energy sector improves.

    JMO and Long TRP

  • Thomson Reuters up 4.3% on Q2 profit beat [View news story]
    They were excellent results that show that Smith is making the right moves and that the Eikon terminal and their other related technologies are not only gaining traction but taking off.

  • Chinese Steel Floods Export Markets As Poor Local Demand And Overcapacity Take Hold [View article]
    Most countries view their steel industry as a critical asset and will protect it when required to do so. You are already seeing this happen in the US and Europe and the industry is signalling to other countries that the alternative to not protecting the industry from dumped steel is to watch the home industry shut down. China dumping of its surplus steel is a short term solution at best as most of the large economies will move to protect their steel industry. Longer term, China has to options for dealing with its surplus - cut production or increase consumption.

  • Oil sands pipeline projects placed in doubt following recent Nexen spill [View news story]
    This guy is a disgrace to the reporting industry. Did the train blowing up in Quebec and killing something like 20 people and destroying a big chunk of the town stop oil shipment by rail???? NO

  • Encana Must Restore Its Balance Sheet [View article]
    So the official word from the company is "Averill said the company can’t predict how long Deep Panuke will operate because the timeline depends on such factors as well and reservoir performance and how production is managed."

    Ethanol is just plain bad anyway you look at it. It was and is a political blunder that costs people a lot of money that they should not have to pay.

  • Encana Must Restore Its Balance Sheet [View article]
    With respect to "The suggestion now is that Deep Panuke has effectively run dry, with perhaps only two more winters to produce." Who and where is this information coming from? Otherwise a very good article going through the challenges, asses and minuses of ECA.

  • Futures slip as China plunges 8.5% [View news story]
    Based on a 10% daily limit move in the Chinese markets, this Chinese stock market crash can be over in a week if the authorities just leave it alone. It is no secret that the Chinese market is hugely overextended and so they need to let nature take its course. Once the correction is over, the markets will be coming from a way stronger base.
