  • The Market Is Officially Entering Bubble Mode, In More Ways Than One [View article]
    Hey cfrimodt,

    You are welcome to move to Texas. Car tax here is 6.25% which seems a little high but we pay it anyway. License tags are $62 USD per year. There is a reason 1000 people a day move to Texas.

    Come on over.

  • The Market Is Officially Entering Bubble Mode, In More Ways Than One [View article]
    Any new car driven off the lot loses 4% or more in depreciation immediately, not in months. Initial cost is no factor.

    A Tesla will be no different than any other car.

  • ConocoPhillips Investor Update: Kashagan, Venezuela, Bone Spring, The Gulf And Drones [View article]
    The Trust of Great Northern Iron Ore Properties (GNI) terminates April 6, 2015. Shares revert to Glacier Park Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of COP. Market cap about $109 million.

    A nice freebie but not too significant with regard to overall capitalization.

  • Pemex sees benefit in potential YPF partnership for Argentina shale [View news story]
    You are right, the Argentine government does not know how to produce shale oil reserves. After all, they are bureaucrats, not engineers.

    They are, however, extremely competent in STEALING shareholder interests in companies with which they have previously executed legitimate production agreements.

    Invest at your own peril, and if you do, get out before the confiscation.

    In Argentina, theft by the government is legal.

    The scrip dividend is a classic case of printing money - non governmental style.

  • Investing For The Future Surge In Commodity Prices - Part 2 [View article]
    At 798 million barrels Vanguard would be producing all the oil in Texas.

    Try 798 MBO = 798,000 BO.

    Also 13 MMCF looks suspicious. Probably 13 BCF = 13 MMMCF

  • Some Projections For Tesla And A Revised View Of The Quasi-Lease Repurchase Obligations [View article]
    Try putting seven people in a Prius, or in an F-150 for that matter.

    Not comparable.

  • Why Tesla Had To Repay Its DOE Loan [View article]
    Comment from the peanut gallery.

    I'm long TSLA because they sell a cool, high performance car. It may or may not make green sense, I don't care. But I am rooting for them to succeed so we as consumers can have that additional option.

    Besides, if I were to sell out my long position I would have to send 43.4% of the profit to the U.S. Treasury. That's not going to happen.

    So I am in for the ride. It's cheap entertainment, especially on SA!

  • Higher Oil Prices Should Send ConocoPhillips Soaring [View article]
    U.S. oil production is up more or less 2 million barrels per day in the last 5 years.

    Therefore we have backed out 2 million barrels per day of oil that we would have normally imported.

    Now, $200 million PER DAY stays home. It does not go to a Saudi prince or a Venezuelan socialist.


    The recovery from recession has been tepid. The increase in domestic oil production has probably been one of the most important drivers in the recovery.

    True facts, men.

  • Hyundai: The World's Most Profitable Major Automaker Is A Bargain [View article]
    South Korea will never initiate war with North Korea. Bad for business. North Korea, however, might start something. When the head bureaucrat machine guns his old girlfriend in public, that ought to tell you - anything goes.

  • Tesla's American Dream Can Turn Into A Speculator's Nightmare [View article]
    If the notes can convert to stock this coming quarter, which I don't believe anybody involved thought could happen so quickly, then some or a lot of $92 basis stock might hit the market.

    Could be some short term downside.
