Investor/swing trader focusing on U.S. onshore independent oil E&P stocks. I don’t sell or promote anything, just a man of leisure. I invest for fun; no successful person needs to play in the markets. Mostly I spend my time outdoors – building, gardening, or just enjoying the West Virginia mountains and wildflowers. Bob De’Long is a pen name. I’m a former hands-on manager in the petroleum and coal industries and a former university professor (professional engineer, MBA, and PhD). I have an active (perhaps overly active) sense of humor, and I especially enjoy looking at the metaphors others use to express themselves or to cover what they don’t know or cannot express. Independent oil E&P stocks that I follow, own and/or trade (when the price) is right are: Whiting Petroleum (WLL) Newfield Exploration (NFX) Continental Resources (CLR) EOG Resources (EOG) SM Energy (SM) Rosetta Recourses (ROSE) and GPOR, PDCE, BCEI, BBG Natural Gas E&P stocks that I follow (but may never buy again because the industry is dying) are: EQT Corporation (EQT) Range Recourses (RRC) Southwestern Energy (SWN) Ultra Petroleum (UPL) Deltic Timber (DEL) is the only non-petroleum stock that I follow, own, and/or trade.
Curis, Inc. (CRIS) - NasdaqGM rated best investment going forward in Biotech for the remainder of 2014 and certainly for 2015.
Past Results - Achillion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (ACHN) was issued a best investment rating on April 14, 2014 and it's hoped that on June 16, 2014 that investors locked in profit near the highs. The high that day was $8.05. The best investment rating was issued from the $2.70's area.
Athersys, Inc. (ATHX) - NasdaqCM In 2013 ATHX in the $1.60's area was issued a best investment notice. Followed up with several articles pointing out its potential. It's hoped investors took profit over $4 in early 2014. Today ATHX and its MultiStem is of high risk with one "no efficacy" phase II trial in 2014 reporting. For this reason ATHX is a buy only under $1.60 again today. This will limit downside to some degree if MultiStem fails again to show efficacy in a second phase II trial.
Other past calls were CLDX, ACUR and ALNY.

Dr. Kris has two degrees from MIT because one just wasn't enough. Her life goal was to figure out the universe and having done that (at least to her satisfaction), she decided to tackle something even more difficult—the stock market.
Applying the scientific method along with an insatiably curious mind, she began trading stocks, futures, and options in order to find the holy grail to market success. She's discovered to her immense satisfaction that not only is there one way to succeed but many. Combining her love of cooking with the stock market, she's devised recipes for investment success designed to please the palate of most investors. Dr. Kris currently manages a private equity long/short portfolio and writes of her current research projects that appear on her website, StockMarketCookBook.com.
Her most exciting project is applying market timing models to Modern Portfolio Theory to not only give greater returns but at substantially lower levels of risk. (See PortfolioPreserver.com for further information.)

As you read my postings in Seeking Alpha, please bear in mind:
1) I describe what I am seeing from my own vantage point. My expression of views is not intended as "advice" to anyone. Not SA readers. Not friends. Not family members. I have never told anyone to buy, sell or hold anything in particular.
2) Any thought or opinion I share is solely with the intent to help a reader arrive at his or her own conclusions. My only motivation is to "give back" stock research ideas, in appreciation for what I have learned from so many SA commenters and authors.
3) I always make clear in comments when I have a long position in a stock. If I sell a stock I have commented on because I have developed new doubts about it, I try to make a new comment to that effect somewhere on SA. I am also direct about positions which I hold underwater. I do not take short positions on individual stocks.
