  • Questions arise on Avon Products offer [View news story]
    Hacking has a new up tons of stock and have some SEC form routed through 45 servers so that the origination is unclear. Sounds like a good short when it reopens.

  • Is DryShips Worth An Investment? [View article]
    Hard to call it an investment at this point but a gamble, yes. Surprised the new government in Greece hasn't started nationalizing businesses to raise cash but looks like management may have this chartered in Marshall Islands, smart.

  • Alpha Natural Resources - A Stock Of Choice For Risk-Taking, Long-Term Investors [View article]
    Hard really to see anything but stabilization of pricing that will allow all these companies to try to get costs to balance out. Bankruptcy is better option to come out debt free and cash flow positive. If natgas prices increase, fracking starts again in earnest and pushes coal down again. EPA and coal plants being mothballed adds to the pressures.

    BAA with it's recently closed equity financing from Grammercy and others has lower West Africa costs and a second mine up and running shortly for about 200K ozs this year. Would help the profit profile for Kinross if they acquired it.

  • Counting Down Greece's Final Moves [View article]
    Greek market will go up 10% when Tspiras finally bails on Varoufakis which the ECB probably knows is the only non-puppet in the room.

  • Eurozone ministers ponder 'Plan B' for Greece [View news story]
    So at the highest level Plan A was, "here are some loans, make sure you pay them back." Plan B apparently is going to be something like what? "There is no more money for you but figure a way to continue to pay us back so our banks don't fail?"

  • Pimco slashes Treasury holdings [View news story]
    Hard for Mutual funds holding bonds to explain to retirees why a loss of -0.2% every year is a worthwhile reason to hold their mutual fund. Bond liquidity dries up, stocks to the moon.

  • Headwinds For New Tesla Financing: Estimates Declining And P/E Multiples At Historic Peak [View article]
    Doesn't take a mathematician to see TSLA is a $30 stock in the throes of a Musk-momentum-tweet love fest which can go on until the next downturn. $40 oil doesn't help any of this.

  • Crash in U.S. oil rig count begins to slow [View news story]
    "Begins to slow" or takes a month breather? If anything slowed it is because the next wave will eat into current production badly vs. future growth which is what all the other ones were. Iran deal is the nail in the coffin for fracking.

  • Eni to slash spending, cut dividend, sell assets [View news story]
    The big energy companies can do these types of things and announce it but the little ones with lot of debt, negative cashflow, no dividend and 12 rigs can't cut anything or the game is up.
