    And they create a lot of smoke. That could be a problem in some metro areas.

    We have an outlet near us. We go 2 or 3 times a month. When they opened, you could not get near the place. Now, 3 months later, it is not crowded at all. It's a labor intensive operation. They are paying slightly above min wages, and are hiring.

    Doesn't seem like a good fit, to me.
    MS bot Lombard. Killed it.
    JPM bot another player (forgot name, had lots of TV commercials), put it to sleep.

    I've read articles in Barron's and IBD that support my opinion. But, try this more current link on the subject:

    I remember, back in the day, when Sears would contract with a private company to manufacture some hot product. The contractor would leverage up their production, and Sears would buy more. Then one fine day, Sears would cancel the contract and the supplier would go bankrupt. Sears would then buy the assets out of bankruptcy.
    That reminds me of Putin's strategy with the Ukraine in regard to natural gas.

    Cytrus Vance was right:
    "You have to listen to adversaries and keep looking for that point beyond which it's against their interests to keep on disagreeing or fighting."

    Sadly, the way out out our impasse with Russia is the price of oil and natural gas. Russia would bankrupt if Brent went below $90.00. And if WTI got back in line with Brent, the world economy would boom.
    While I would not like to see world leaders legislate the price of energy, merely encouraging production would have great political benefits.

  • Capital Southwest: A BDC To Believe In? [View article]
    I love this company. But it is not a BDC. It is a SBIC. and is probably the last of it's kind. The stock acts and trades like a closed end investment company.

  • Profire Energy +4.8% following solid FQ4 results [View news story]
    I do not understand why insiders would sell their stock at $4.00 in a secondary offering. After all, they surely had some idea of how well sales were going.
