  • Should You Ditch Yahoo For The Alibaba IPO? [View article]
    edjan, I agree with you. The author seems to think BABA is going to open at the set price and it's share valuation will hold steady when open market bids come in. I'm staying with my YHOO.
    By the why, here is the AH price from the Yahoo Finance site:

    "After Hours : 40.64 Up 1.05 (2.65%) Sep 5, 7:59PM EDT"

  • Should You Ditch Yahoo For The Alibaba IPO? [View article]
    Those GOPRO'er have carried optimism to the extreme. It nearly went to $60 on Friday. It's the biggest game of "Hot Potato" in the world of day traders right now.

  • Chinese EV Battery Market Just Another Bullish Catalyst For Extremely Undervalued Highpower Technology [View article]
    Michael, thank you for another great article. It seems the really good authors/contributors on SA collect a couple of Posters that stalk their every move. Value Digger suffers from the same situation. It's the price you pay for your excellent work.

  • Capstone: Low Risk, High Reward [View article]
    Great Engineered Products marketed by a Management that has proven to be incompetent beyond belief!

    I feel sorry for the designers, workers and SHAREHOLDERS.

  • To Handsomely Beat The Market, Buy Petroamerica Oil With Both Hands [View article]
    blueice, I couldn't agree more!
    I've often wondered how many approaches Value Digger has had from private & public Investment firms. I'm betting it's a high number.
    As a steady reader of SA articles on all topics (when I have time,) I cannot recall such a prolific & educational Author. His articles have an amazing amount of details from the financials all the way to the geologic details of the drilling zones!

  • Ship Finance International - What's In Store For Shareholders? [View article]
    This is a well written and informative article. I have been long SFL for over 10 years with a few flips of stock to capture Capital gains (in 2012 & 13) as I had taken advantage of dips to $15 with predicted rises above $17. However all the while I have maintained a core holding to capture the double digit dividend.
    Your comment on refining is very interesting as there is a global shift tanking place in locating Refining Facilities. Australia's plant closings are due to their age and delay in making needed upgrades. Asia is running many of their transport vehicles on diesel and shipping cheap gasoline (as part of the refined barrel) to Australia almost as an unwanted by-product. Meanwhile the renaissance of crude oil production in North America has given refineries located in the US new life. I think you are correct in the change in future composition of petroleum products that will be delivered by global tankers.

    geit, unfortunately the pipelines have always been a favorite target of Terrorists on a Global basis.
    FARC's favorite game in Columbia (in past years) was blowing up the Crude transport lines. This was more for attention than creating a serious shut down of operations. The lines have always been restored quickly and repair crews would then wait for the next "POP!"
    Your LINK gave me the chills as the Cartels are stealing refined product. It reminds me of the horrible burn cases in Nigeria when Gangs would break a gasoline transport line and the poor would gather around by the hundreds to fill pails & bottles. It was only a matter of time before the break and surrounding area was hit with an ignition source.

    Thank you (as always) for a well researched and written article about a great opportunity for the independent investor. It's ironic you were about to release an article on Suroco Energy when it was suddenly acquired, but given your great track record it's certainly not surprising!
    In regard to Geopolitical Risk, I can advise that I was one of the participating Underwriters on the Ecopetrol property Insurance policy for over 20 years. During that period the important assets (such as the refineries) experienced very little disruption as the various political groups (FARC) seemed to realize they benefited the Country and they were not going to "foul their own nest." While acts of terror are not a covered risk on Global policies we still avoided politically active Countries and Columbia was never placed in the "penalty box."

  • Halcon Resources: The Future Remains Questionable And Unclear [View article]
    saillpgd, thank you for the scorecard. The proof is in the numbers. Value Digger has provided his readers with accurate analysis of various E&P operations, as well as, very educational information regarding the Oil & Gas formations throughout North America. I notice his stalkers never seem to come up with any positive recommendations that remotely approach his outstanding record!

  • Do These 4 Energy Companies Remain Excellent Short Candidates? [View article]
    dverenes@bell, you took the words right out of my mouth. Value Digger's articles not only give a great deal of information about individual Companies, they are extremely educational about the new & old producing areas in North America. He has also turned my portfolio around at an extremely important time of my life.

  • Holly Energy Partners: A Dividend Growth Powerhouse With A 6% Yield [View article]
    Michael, thank you for a well written article on this well positioned MLP. I like the fact that the income is 100% fee based with no commodity valuation risk. The assets are certainly well located serving older refineries that are now updated and thriving from our newly discovered petroleum sources. The growth projects that are planned is certainly icing on the cake!
    I will be looking to add this one to my IRA portfolio

  • If You Are An Alpha Seeker Looking For The Next Big Energy Play, Load Epsilon Energy Now [View article]
    I also am looking forward to NG going north of $6, but a cool summer season, along with other factors, has damped the demand for this fuel. However winter is on it's way and I love the location of this company as it's production and distribution is right in the heart of the Northeast. I'd rather buy an undervalued and financial stable Company ahead of the game, while the "seats are still cheap!"
