  • Will Tesla's Performance Live Up To Its CEO's Hype? [View article]
    Teddy, a Ferrari cost up to $400,ooo and has a market niche of over some 50 years..

    The Gen III at 30k and in only four years ? They are planning to mass produce vehicles ? 180K in 2016 ? Only if the EPA gives us $6.oo a gallon petrol...

    Any sub performance will kill this company, whether range or battery capacity or pricing...

    Teddy, I do like the reduction in maintenance features..!

    BTW, I am for all competition to the gasoline engine..

    Teddy, well stated and could not agree with you more! Until infrastructure costs come down, hydrogen will never happen...

  • Seadrill: Buy This Fat Yield Before It's Too Late [View article]
    Hawk, your returns are going to be badly impacted when they increase the tax on dividends to ordinary income.

    The current 9% will become a 6% effective return...It is a good thing that Seadrill is not incorporated in the USA, as they would have to pay income tax on the divy as well.

    Dividends are wonderful, if a business has no other need for that capital, which in Seadrill is not the case.

    My preference has and will be, a strong balance sheet and stock appreciation as a means of safe guarding my capital investment, which is my main concern.

  • Seadrill: Buy This Fat Yield Before It's Too Late [View article]
    Mr Ken-well, interesting article...I have been following this company for the past 18 months....When the stock reached 30, I wrongly lowered my entry point to 25..

    This is an excellent company, however, it's debt load is of some concern. A divy of 5% is more than adequate; the cost savings could and should be used to pay down the debt and build cash reserves.

    After all, this company is not an utility...

    Saibus Research, excellent report. 21 posts and nearly half of them by members with less than 100 post. The Enviro freaks love this company, but as one may notice not a single one is a stockholder.

    Did you notice how mentioning his skin color provoked an attack, by these Leftocrats...Censorship is well and a live...With the exception of three posts, the rest where nothing more than attack posts, from people we have never hear of...Moveon.org and or the Occupiers must be monitoring this website.

    I do wish this company well, however, they are a socialist enterprise requiring a guarantied government loan, which in itself indicates this business is an extremely high risk venture...

    This company is a niche player at best and IMHO, will never produce the necessary volume to become profitable.

    Tesla Motors and Barrock both exit the market in 2016...

  • Bakken Update: The Red Queen Is Just A Fairy Tale Part II [View article]
    Petroleum News quotes Marathon "At its Aeneas Myrmidon projects in McLean and southern Mountrail counties, Marathon was averaging an estimated ultimate recovery, or EUR, rate of 570,ooo boe per well at mid-year (up from 350,ooo in 2008)."

    "Per Marathon's latest investor information its average 2012 Bakken
    IP is 1,338 boe per day, a 120 percent increase over 2010."

    "Marathon's estimated EURs per well have grown from 350,ooo boe to 550,ooo."

    "Spud to spud cycle times have dropped from 90 days to 28 days."

    "Thirty-stage fracks have become the norm." "Eight million to 12 million barrels of oil in place on a 1,280-acre unit"

    These numbers are truly encouraging, especially in lower overall cost to shareholders.

  • Taxes: Why Tinkering Beats Wholesale Overhaul [View article]
    The more I read about Mr Salmoney the less I like him...He continuously come off as a prototype left winger only advancing ideas that promote new forms of taxation and maintaining the status quo.

    " I would love to see a carbon tax, and a financial-transactions tax, and a wealth tax"

    One can see his line of thinking, add more layers of taxes and little or no reform to the current barbaric tax codes. Mr Salmoney's, answer is the introduction of more taxes, while simplifying the tax code is left to the indolent.

    He supports double taxation, in the form of higher taxes and greater percentages. There is a very strong correlation between the "progressive" love of complexity versus the right for simplicity..Why this is the case, I am not sure, other than it makes them an expert...

    The only tinkering he does, is to propose more and more revenue from the private sector to the public...Of course the reason for more public funding is never really stated, other than the insatiable appetite for a larger form of government...

    Felix, is a balloon boy for the current socialist administration. Perhaps his ideas are Krugman's floor scraps, but I for one have grown tired of his JMK's solutions to today's problems.

    Has not America been tinkering with the tax code for the past one hundred years? Sorry, FS, but we are all tinkered out...

    Mr Martin, Mark Anthony has a long history of post and ghost. For whatever reason, he does very little dialoguing with members of SA..

    He does not even show any respect to the author of the thread; nor bothers to reply. His actions are most regrettable.

    Evan. I think the company is going under...If it can not demonstrate, that the well will have higher production versus hydro-fracking, it will lose out to the many competitors...

    It is that simply...
