  • Exxon Mobil To Outperform Peers In 2015 [View article]
    XOM was available for almost the same price when oil was $100. It's hard for me to see XOM going over $100 if oil prices go back to $80. If you really believe oil prices are going to go up strongly, it's better to buy the E&P companies.

  • Ignite: No Drivers For Growth [View article]
    So between the loss on the sale of Macaroni and the debt from Macaroni they kept, they lost $150M, or more than their entire present market cap , in only a couple of years? Why hasn't management got the boot? According to Yahoo Finance, IRG is 2/3 owned by J.C. Whitney LLC, is that correct? Why haven't the Whitney people done something or are they somehow profiting from these transactions?

  • The Liquid Natural Gold Deal - By Charles Payne [View instapost]
    It's not worth building a natural gas pipeline to a oil well that produces a small amount of natural gas. That's why they burn it. Australia and Middle East are already exporting large quantities of gas. US has no ability to do so presently.

  • 'The U.S. Is Broke' [View article]
    But much of it is paying interest rates below inflation. The actual cost of repaying the long term debt will drop pretty fast if we get back to five percent inflation.

  • Why It's Hard To Be Optimistic About Chevron [View article]
    Three of the shale companies have gone bankrupt recently. Expect more. Most of them borrowed a lot of money cheap to buy assets whose value (in the short term anyway) has gone down by more than the price of oil (since the value of a field you can produce oil for $50/barrel in is not much when you can only sell for less than the cost of production). CVX and the other majors can still borrow money and they will pick up a lot of assets for the long term eventually and end up bigger and stronger. That is why the stock hasn't gone down much.
