  • Iranian protesters ransack Saudi embassy  [View news story]
    Come on, Sean. Why are you shocked? You should know that the human species is ultra competitive and we are as cruel as we are kind. How many people in the USA do think cry when natural disasters and war have crushed all those foreign countries. Not a significant number I'll bet.

    Of course inventory has increased. Who wouldn't want to buy more oil at these low prices?

  • The Force remains with new 'Star Wars' movie  [View news story]
    I hated The Force Awakens. Worst villain (emo loser) in the history of sci-fi movies. It was typical corporate focus-group story planning which appeals to the lowest common denominator. Harrison Ford dialed in his performance and I could care less about all the whiny fanboys yelling "Spoilerths! Spoilerths! Spoilerths!" Luke Skywalker has less than 3 seconds in the film. Why didn't Boba Fett escape from the Sarlacc pit? That would have been my first objective as a new Star Wars director. Jar Jar Abrams is a hack. What they should have done is had Lucas write the story then have someone edit out all the crappy dialog and get a hot new action director to helm it. Pure FAIL.

    But, it is doing well which is why I don't invest in entertainment companies or restaurants because I usually hate what the Idiocracy enjoys.

  • 'Star Wars' has $238M opening for the ages  [View news story]
    Scott, it was the perfect execution of corporate focus-group planning to appeal to the lowest common denominator, which explains it's success. I know I'm in the minority with my opinion. Interesting that you mention The Minority Report. I didn't care much for that Tom Cruise movie but Cruise is, coincidentally, in the best sci-fi movie I've seen in years which is The Edge Of Tomorrow and that movie was PG-13 which goes against what I normally prefer, R-rated. The only good Star Wars movie was Empire Strikes Back and the dialog in that movie is pretty awful in spots too. The dialog in the Force Awakens was so cringe-worthy. "Do you have a boyfriend?" asks Finn to Rey like an awkward 12-year old. Puke.

  • Bye-bye crude export ban  [View news story]
    The same people who chanted "drill! drill! drill!" are cheering now like this is going to make a difference. News flash: adding more oil onto the open market is going to drop the price further.

  • Saudi Arabia And OPEC Are Going To Keep Pumping Until Shale Investment Is Crushed  [View article]
    I read a really good horror fiction story about fracking the other day... actually it has little to do with shale oil fracking but it was B R U T A L L Y violent which should appeal to all the psychos who post regularly here on SAlpha :^D It's called FRACKING HELL. The nightmares it induces should help replace the nightmares about your oil investment losses. ;^)

    Saudi princes have shorted oil since the beginning of this debacle and they are taking in $millions everyday. They really are a fairly smart bunch of sociopaths.

  • Utica Shale gas drillers hit gushers, rewarded with slumping stock prices  [View news story]
    The reason why so many people in the USA deny AGW is because of Al Gore. Al Gore (the dreaded liberal) was the vanguard in presenting AGW to the world and because of that almost every right winger concluded it was bunk. Years later after mountains of data, evidence, and peer-reviewed expert reports it is still denied because (for the right wing conservatives and especially the religious ones) it doesn't matter, ideology trumps logic for them.

    I think there is a huge short opp here and I can't tell you how much joy it would give me to take $ from SEAS shareholders... then once it is driven down it will be a good buy like KMART because of the real estate.
