  • Chesapeake Well Positioned To Rise On Natural Gas Rally [View article]
    I like this article but stocknerd -- you have ripped off the bark and reached the core of the limits on CHK growth.

    Nice going.

    Most experts believe it will stick above $3, though. eventual vehicle apps may be the reason.

  • Chesapeake Energy Is Cooking With Gas... And Oil [View article]

    You sure had a point. CHK was a huge risk recently. However, even then, some of us believed that calls for it to crash to $5 were a little over the top. I took some other opinion and ran. I can still lose.

    We should keep two major things in mind. For one thing, NG was close to $1 just six or eight months ago as I recall. They had scandals and an inability to service debt and pay for drilling. The second of those probably drove Aubrey nuts.

    Those two are also are a one - two combo that killed many companies.

    If they are solved -- with NG running over $3 and rising --no wonder the stock is moving up. I don''t see a goldmine here, yet, we still have the rest of the minefield and a bad reputation. . My analyst said $45 by year end. I would celebrate that.

    I doubt that it will be reality but who knows? It is not looking like $5 is immediately ahead.

    Um, that remark was just kidding with a germ of truth in it.

    If you want insults, just ask.

  • Chesapeake And GE's CNG In A Box Is Bullish For Chesapeake [View article]
    This story is better than a Hollywood action film. I am long CHK with both stock and options. The opts are probably going to be worthless.

    At any rate, this is a very nice article but you are at odds with the people who see the firm with too many fires on board.

    Somebody agrees with them or this stock would not be nearly flat in the range around or at $19 for weeks, even as Nat gas prices have increased.

    According to the Penn State expert, the Almanac, and a host of long term climate forecasters, we are due for a winter as cold as the Bible would describe. There is also a fundamentalist Christian minister who has the same prediction. Let us see where the product price goes and if CHK follows as we try to stay warm.

    I think we will see something positive start in Jan at the earliest. Then, in spring, when the problems have shrunken and the balance sheet looks good, we will have the growth in CHK. Unless someone sees it coming and buys it up beforehand.

  • Buy Chesapeake And Get Rich: The Story Of Immense Energy Resources [View article]
    Coal? Forget the petitioners in bankruptcy. Check Walter Energy which, with a metallurgical focus, was supposed to the be the "good" and "safe" coal. It needs to be multiplied by oh, 5 or 6 to show a decent growth over the last few years.

  • Buy Chesapeake And Get Rich: The Story Of Immense Energy Resources [View article]
    This message is for the sane people here. There are many liabilities with CHK. Once the debt is under control and SEC problems resolved it would be a prime candidate for a major or syndication. As far as Ichan is concerned, he is not alone. There are at least six investment groups with pretty fair experts hanging around, in addition to the three or four waves of auditors that have combed the place in the last 18 months.

    The negative attitudes used to involve Aubrey going to Rio. Now they have morphed into a slow death for the company as a result of low prices or drowning in debt, or both. Such groups have experts which the individual investor couldn't touch.

    I believed in this firm when I did not have Ichan or anyone else interested. Of course, I missed the ride down from $74 so I did not have the worst perspective.

    At this juncture, either the Jan 14 calls or just buying stock seems reasonable. I am sitting on some 300 or 500 for Jan of 13 at $23 and $25 and I think they will be worthless. They are not my retirement fund or needed to buy food. An analyst who had good calls for me in the past felt that $45 would be reasonable for CHK by December of 2012. Nat Gas at $5.00 and quick sales were his assumptions. Either of them seem very optimistic unless we have a winter worse than I have been warned about.

    It has taken somewhat longer than expected to sell the assets and get the balance sheet under control. Reserves and resources are fine, although estimates. However, estimating the time factor and market price of a commodity is the real challenge in looking at CHK.

    In that way, the $30 call for Jan of 14 is a risk which may pay handsomely or not. I might take it, though.

  • Chesapeake Downgrades Are An Entry Opportunity [View article]
    Cold of Biblical Proportions

    According to the chief Penn State meteorologist, NOAA, the Almanac and even the Bible (Google it) we are about to experience a really cold winter.

    Some outlier of a Christian cleric read it in the Bible.

    Nat Gas at 6 to $8?

    Couldn't have CHK at 40. No way.

  • On QE3: Buy Oil And Gas, Sell Obama Re-election Odds [View article]
    It would not be too bad if he learned everything he knows from a movie.

    The problem is all the lies he has growing around the movie.

    Anyway, I'll take a machete to a small part of the lying thicket.

    Easy. It is said that President Obama passed the Heritage Foundation's health care proposal. The president said something on TV and every other lefty says it wrong in unison.

    From Politifact:

    We agree with Heritage that the differences between its original vision and the version enacted into law are not trivial, and are enough to undercut the president's effort to secure a Heritage Foundation seal of approval for his bill. But the president helped his case by wording his statement with extreme care. Intentionally or not, he gave himself subtle linguistic running room by saying that "a lot of the ideas" for the exchange came from Heritage, including the concept of "just being able to pool and improve the purchasing power of individuals in the insurance market." Even if not all of the ideas in the two plans are identical, we feel that it was fair of him to say that "a lot of the ideas" are in common, including the notion of pooling.

    He probably guessed how it would be misunderstood by his zombies. It was NOT any plan drafted by Heritage.

    Their folks described it this way:

    Heritage continued its campaign against Obama's claim in an April 19, 2010, op-ed column in the Washington Post. The director of Heritage's Center for Health Policy Studies, Robert Moffit, wrote that "the version of the exchange we did develop couldn't be more different than that embodied in this law." He charged that "the Obama health-care law 'builds' on the Heritage health reform model only in the sense that, say, a double-quarter-pounder with cheese 'builds' on the idea of a garden salad. Both have lettuce and tomato and may be called food, but the similarities end there."

    Yes, Wall Street had the bright idea for giving mortgages to people who couldn't afford them. That wasn't the goal of a bunch of Democrat activists who actually went to banker's homes to intimidate them or Obama who supported something called the Community Reinvestment Act. The Democrats pumped the bubble, they did! Don't even think about blaming the conservatives for the mortgage melt down. Now other things..OK.

    GAS? Every Democrat I can think of plays politics with gas prices and "Big Oil" .

    Oh yes and Obama sure loved to needle President Bush over gas prices. The problem is that the idiot Obama keeps playing with electric cars while we have millions out of work. Now who exactly is cold hearted? And used the green jobs seed money to pay donors back? Try Obama.

    Cold Romney? Who has no time for the kids and young men gunned down in Chicago?

    Who took off on a campaign swing to Las Vegas hours after we had an ambassador tortured and murdered?

    Who is lying all over the place about the Benghazi, Terror Attack and calling it a mob action started by a film clip? He was so busy acting big and bad with his exploding drones and shooting Bin Laden? Spiking the football even if it meant leaking secrets that make us less safe.

    He scares nobody outside of this country. His foreign policy had 20 embassies under siege. What a success!

    Finally, the government and banks have been securitizing mortgages for 50 years. Turn off MSNBC and open a book.

    Now on the poor, I agree with you and I would move to the ghetto if I were president. Paying unemployment or to keep men in jail makes no economic sense. The buffet tax idea (typical Obama) was so small it was silly politics but I agree that the super rich have been getting exploding net worth results. I have a theory on helping the poor into successful capitalism.

    That is another post. Peace.
