  • Frontline: Why The Shorts May Be Getting Nervous [View article]
    i think FRO will come back sooner than later.bought more recently.there is lots of wear & tear on these ships.time itself,even if anchored for storage,deteriorate these ships.newbuildings will be limited as a lesson learned.at this price risk is very limited.since the market is somewhat like "vegas" taking a gamble is worth it.i bought like crazy @ the bottom 5 years ago.did real well.lucky.

    i think that for every co managements pay should be cut as much as the dividend & no bonuses.it should be raised as the div is raised.so should the bonus.

  • TransCanada Corporation - Dividend Fact Sheet Overview [View article]
    now if we could get,somehow,how often this writer is wrong or right we might be able to make a better judgement re these opinions.its a shame none of the alpha contributors gives us a percentage on their opinions over,lets say,a five year period.im still waiting for GE to go bust based on one of these analysts predictions along with other "wrongs".

  • BP Set To Benefit Shareholders... And Only Shareholders [View article]
    sadly there is very little ethics & morals left here in this country.this holds true for both individuals & corps.lying & coverups,phony claims & an abundance of lawyers trying to make a living all contribute to this sad situation.is it better in other countries?i dont know.its not one bad apple that spoils the barrel but almost the whole barrel starts out spoiled.many judges are voted in & out of office.a lot of their opinions have to do with their next election.if they side with BP against some local crook they might lose their job.a decaying society affects everybody.

  • Frontier Communications: More Leverage, Less Trust [View article]
    the land line here in ct has been a saver as the electricity is in the line & holds up when the rest of the grid fails.we even were able to make calls when our cells could not get through.you need the phone most in an emergency & most that gave up the land line learned this the hard way-sadly.
