  • Short Sellers Are Not The Bad Guys [View article]
    Tom,
    What about caveat emptor? Just because blogs allow for faster sharing of information does not mean that the consumer is not responsible for doing his homework.

    There is no predatory fraud in disseminating information that may be false. It is unscrupulous and devoid of business ethics but it is ultimately up to the investor to take the calculated risk.

    Only in America, that has turned into a state of government dependents, do we cry about the perils of free markets. The markets are the last thing we have left that resembles capitalism and even that is becoming stock traders at the teat of the FED.

  • Why U.S. Stocks Will Keep Powering Higher [View article]
    Not bitter. just read a few history books is all. Irrational government response and central planning boondoggles have all happened before. This one is just going parabolic.
    At least there is comedic value in watching these fools trying to save themselves.
    ugly ending no matter what.

  • Why U.S. Stocks Will Keep Powering Higher [View article]
    Do we really need articles about why the market is up?
    1. no where else to go for return.
    2. bond bubble is more dangerous than ever
    3. FED is trying to inflate away the value of debt.
    4. Central bankers are out of ways to manipulate.

    Thank goodness for the FED. Without them, we might know what it is like to operate in free markets and the unwise business man would fail thus opening up room for new entrants at risk adjusted prices.
    Indeed, nothing to see here because the end result of this is failed policies and drastic government responses by ignorant pols.
    Get ready for the slow bleed to misery and eventual war.

  • Domestic Oil/Gas Continues To Perform - 2 Large Cap Favorites [View article]
    Certainly central economic planning is scourge and much more likely to be the source of the next major war, which is probably around the corner. Financial boondoggles have been the source of the last two major wars and this one will be little different.
    Free market capitalism would stave off any impending population crises much longer than any other solution but that is not going to happen.

    Regarding the ability of current resources being able to sustain population growth, people have been calling for that catastrophe for decades and technological advancements have been increasing yields instead.

    Malthus and your main concern should simply be autocratic government, fiscal profligacy, and idiot Marxists. I'll put my faith in competing markets and capitalism as the only solution.

  • Natural Gas Transportation: What's Taking The U.S. So Long? [View article]
    Charlie,
    That guy has no data to support. He is not in the know.

    There are hundreds of fleets operating all over the country. There are more than 50 class 8 fleets operating well over 50 trucks in their respective fleet. Dozens that have over 100 nat gas trucks. The 12L Cummins is working like a champ. The spread between diesel is just not as attractive as it was but one spike in diesel will bring all of the fervor back into motion.
    Unfortunately, it appears that the failures of politicians and central banks, the world over, to steer markets is failing rapidly. War was the outcome of all other major financial boondoggles in history. At least natural gas will gain in use when the coming collapse throws the petroleum markets into frenzy again.
    Just be patient on nat gas.

    It is clear that the environmentalists do not care about the environment. They are are ignorant Marxists that just hate all forms of business.
    Which is hilarious in its ridiculousness. if environmentalists really cared about peace and the well-being of humanity, they would support cheap energy to advance the human condition in poor countries which would lead to cleaner environments in third world countries.
    Problem being, of course, that your average college professor, typical Marxists has no foresight into the tendencies of humans. They just hate business and think capitalists are melting the planet.
    Most americans are brainwashed fools and doing the right thing with relation to cheap natural gas is far to simple for simpletons.

  • Natural Gas Transportation: What's Taking The U.S. So Long? [View article]
    What's taking so long?
    We live in a banana republic with no rule of law. No one in business can figure out what to do because our energy policy in this country is more based on subsidy and cronyism than sound economic indicators.
    Natural gas is the future because their is more of it and it offers some stability right now that petroleum can't.

    However, criminals run our country and utilizing a natural resource that is in abundance at true prices won't happen until we have a world economy that is healthy enough to drive up the demand for diesel in the developing world.
    Just a snippet of capitalism practiced by anyone in Washington would be a very quick indicator of the necessary place that nat gas fuel has in a healthy economy. A little free trade along with competing interest between coal, gas, and petroleum would be the best thing for the world.
    Good luck with that.

  • The Great Correction Of 2014? Don't Drink The Kool-Aid [View article]
    The stock market is not parabolic yet but everything else is. Central banks the world over are racing to devalue currencies and to promulgate schemes that can perpetuate the charade.
    Politicians are attempting to ramp up their fiscal profligacy schemes because they know they are out of options.
    Venezuela is comically performing 1984 on stage. The United States is accelerating its conversion to full on banana republic with no rule of law. The market is still simply the last refuge for return.

    There is nowhere else to put your money so what does it matter. If everything is bubble driven, then nothing presents a sound investment structure. US bonds are paying higher than two PIGS of the same duration.

  • Outlook For U.S. LNG Exports [View article]
    If you support free market economics, then there should be no impediment to free trade. Cheaper energy in developing economies allows international companies to outsource labor to cheaper countries, thus resulting in cheaper products for the American consumer. Do you want more and better products at more competitive prices or do you want more expensive products.

    Fraccing is repeatedly proving to be a safe process and has been for 60 years. The anti-fraccing crowd is losing steam as they continue to spread myths and sabotage tactics. Look up Ed Beagly Jr conspiring to make an anti-fraccing movie. Hilarious stuff.

    To call for the abolition of cheap energy discovery methods is to drive up the cost of living for people who need cheap energy to sustain a good standard of living.

    Are the environmentalists for a green earth with starving people in it or are they for poor people having the chance to emerge from poverty?

    The real quotes I have seen put 110 DGE onboard storage at $70-$80 premium to like diesel models.

    Top dog,
    Definitely check out Mobile. It looked exactly like this one. Clean does admit to the large numbers of mothballed stations in relation to commissioned ones.
    How long will their cash last until we have another diesel spike and the 6 month aftermath which re-lights the nat gas fire for all skeptics?

  • Clean Energy Fuels: A Flawed Business Model And Morgan Stanley's Folly [View article]
    TopDog,
    One perfect example is the CLNE station in Valdosta GA. It is fueling for EPES and I have been curious how many trucks are actually using that station since EPES only has 10 LNG trucks in 2 markets. Other fleets have one or two trucks in the Southeast region but based on physical observation, there is hardly enough density for CLNE to be pushing adequate fuel through the stations in Latta or Valdosta, for example. It also begs the question; is CLNE subsidizing all gallons to keep the spread at a palatable level?

  • 3 Reasons Why Clean Energy Fuels' Pullback Is A Buying Opportunity [View article]
    Natural gas is the future for a great portion of the transporation markets. Has clean gotten way ahead of itself is the question?

    It appears that they will need a lot of cash to throw at this until LNG catches on in bigger numbers. Right now, CNG is winning the day and how long can CLNE hold out for long haul truckers to start using ANGH? LNG will be the fuel for long haul but that is not as soon as they hope so can their CNG stations and partnerships pay the bills until one day?

    I'm not buying CLNE because in a banana republic, the rules are too squirrely to bet on. If they need state and fed incentives to keep momentum going, that is a bad bet.

    Cummins came out with a 12L nat gas engine?
