  • Apple: iPhone Is Not Dead, It's About To Come Alive  [View article]
    Hooray for your honesty in the mention of that elephant most of America
    pretends not to be in the room. Last year I tried to make a similar
    argument for the hidden value of GoPro, as GPRO fell back from the giddy
    high it reached after it's IPO to a more reasonable level around $40. The
    theory was that the HD POV capability would revolutionize the industry.
    GPRO is now $11 and a lot of the material now being put on sites is shot
    with...wait for it.......iPhones!!

  • Another Oil Spill For Plains All American Pipeline  [View article]
    Americans brainwashed to believe the climate change created by man hoax must look around their homes and lifestyles of their fellow citizens. They must ask the question "What impact would I have on my life if oil was not available?" If they are honest and have an IQ above room temperature they know the answer. Fortunately the decisions are taken out of their hands and oil production will continue despite their protests, to fill the desires of the 7 billion people who inhabit the planet besides the chiefly white, European ancestry protestors. They can console themselves with the facts that oil spills have been occurring naturally since time began, and bacteria have evolved to break oil down and render it harmless. Lucky us.

  • Sorry Longs, Molycorp's Shares Are Worthless  [View article]
    I used to believe that. Then when Mr Obama gave speech after G7
    saying we have no ISIS policy yet, but he would tell all plans as soon
    as he got them from Defense Department, I worried about national
    security cares of this incompetent administration. Then I heard that
    the president of Iraq was in Moscow asking for help. ISIS captured
    power plant in city in Libya, and is ready to move on Bagdad. This
    is the bunch that sold AONE to the Chinese after putting a billion
    American dollars in research and manufacturing startup costs, for
    pennies on the dollar. MCP is toast.

  • California oil spill estimate revised lower  [View news story]
    @User63931 It seems that nobody much cares lest we outcompete our cats.
    Statistics are thin but in the absence of hard data they will state fossils fuels
    as the clear bird danger. It is clear they just make up numbers as they wish.
    An entire week has gone by and PAA closed down .10 at $46.95, less than -$1
    since the spill announcement. This may be the dream stock if the dividend holds.

  • California oil spill estimate revised lower  [View news story]
    On the first day of trading following the spill, with the TV anchors in full cry as
    Brown Pelicans were washed of oil on the screen, I looked at pre-market. The
    stock had dropped AH the day before and again PM so I sold at the open at the
    market price of 43.15. The stock price started climing and reached $2 over the
    open. While it gave back $1 it has stayed relatively stable for a week even though
    the government of CA has ordered everything shut down. Cleanup costs continue,
    more and more beaches are closed, and PAA appears bulletproof. EPA is worried
    about water in puddles in farmers pastures and road ditches, not so much this
    spill. I don't get it.

  • Molycorp Seeks More Oaktree Debt - Kicking The Can Down The Road?  [View article]
    Yes, Captain Obvious, I could sell now, but the possibility of government bailout has been raised before as a serious question. Obviously consideration of such an event is much above your level of concern for sarcasm. Some of us are concerned with the virtual monopoly China has on REE especially given the track record the current administration has racked up in foreign affairs. Granted that the Mountain Pass facility produces only light oxides but it is completed and the only one in America. I am certain the Chinese would be happy to buy it at any price but bankrupcy prices of course would be better if they could pull it off by manipulating world prices. A reverse split may not help.

  • Molycorp Seeks More Oaktree Debt - Kicking The Can Down The Road?  [View article]
    I suppose the majority of common holders that have been averaging down for the past two years are just chopped liver? Is there any circumstance, like a federal government bailout, that could see any of us getting any of our money back? Opinions please.

  • Alaska Communications off 5% in post-earnings late trading  [View news story]
    I think ALSK owes it to their shareholders to resume dividends and buy back
    some of the O/S. Anyone holding since the disbursement two years ago are
    down about 25% while management have paid themselves well for a foolish

  • Molycorp's Potential Delisting Still In Play  [View article]
    @stockhedging. Because as he states that he is back with a short position again.
    People like him lack the ethics of a team player and could care less if a company
    or a country, even one they live in, gets destroyed with the assistance of their
    greed. Reminiscent of a old times peddler beating his mule to death while crossing
    a desert. MCP will go the way of A123. Nobody will care until the Chinese buy it.
    They definitely will end up with the best parts. Everything not at Mountain Pass.
    What could possibly be wrong with that picture if we can make just one or two
    short plays pay off?

    The MCP refining is mostly done in California. Are you aware of

  • Nuvilex Inc: Why We Believe This Promoted Stock Is Worth Zero  [View article]
    At least the author is honest enough to disclose he has a short only position.
    Unless he was born yesterday he must know that there are many hundred
    little biotech companies on the OTC boards where they sit for years waiting
    for the big breakthrough, and if it comes, hope to be bought by big Pharma
    so they can make a killing. They almost never have revenue coming in, and
    rely on sale of stock and all-to-often toxic finance deals with companies like
    Asher, to keep salaries paid and the lights on. It is usually these finance
    companies that hire promoters so they can unload the shares they receive
    by the millions at a fraction of the market value in order to get their money
    back. They don't want to tie their money up for years waiting for FDA
    approval or hope for 10 bag buyouts. They want shares at .0001 and pay
    a market maker like NITE to feed the shares into the float at the highest
    price they can get. If it crashes the pps so be it as long as they got a profit
    they usually could care less how the company or it's shareholders get left.
    Shorters like stupid here, that choose usernames to write forecasts of doom
    under, are not interested in protecting YOUR investment, they want to protect
    their investment, since they have already borrowed the stock and sold it. Now
    they have to sweat with the clock ticking that the price will fall so they can buy
    the shares back cheap enough to make whatever target profit they set. So they
    write articles like this to scare everyone into selling and drop the price. And a lot
    of the time it works. Because even some of the longs know they can sell and buy
    back if they can make enough to no longer care to be treated as longs by the IRS.
    When the marijuana bubble was forming someone tagged NVLX in one of
    their periodic promotions with a maybe this company could have a delivery
    application. That never went anywhere, good or bad, that I could see, but
    it still is in the mission summary. I think it should come off. The thinking that
    all that had to happen was put a mention of marijuana in the write-ups and
    the stock price would go up, seemed to have the opposite effect as it was mainly
    the fake pot companies that were shells involved in studying gold mining or oil
    exploration from their condo in FL, NV or LA. They all bought airline tickets to
    Denver or Seattle to study how to enter the pot gold rush. NVLX was never
    part of that scene.

  • GT Advanced Technologies Update: Beginning Of The End For Chapter 11 Process  [View article]
    The problem with that picture is that Apple has a history of contractually
    screwing it's suppliers. Either they are bought out at fire sale prices or
    they are stripped of intellectual property and abandoned as shells. Of
    course this is made more feasible when Apple can dangle personal wealth
    opportunity to greedy insiders, and given the state of business ethics these
    days it is almost a given that a BOD can be convinced to sign a Apple deal
    and feel that if the company will benefit, so shall the holder of common
    shares. A prime example is the company Liquidmetal Technologies (LQMT)
    left floundering after APPL stripped it of it's IP and tied it up legally so that
    it cannot license it's process in a product that can be monetized without
    violating the terms of the Apple sale agreement. Wall Street financiers did
    not engineer this GTAT disaster. Apple lawyers did.

  • GT Advanced Technologies: What Went Wrong And What Investors Need To Know About The Bankruptcy Process  [View article]
    I fail to see why you draw the conclusion the fault lies in the
    relationship between GT and Apple, given the Apple statement
    that the BK caught them by surprise. GT has four business
    segments, and not much has ever been exposed by analysts
    about the three not associated with the Apple Sapphire production.
    Why not look at contracts with other customers that may have
    defaulted on their contracts? Apple already has secured the rights
    to the patients, so do not need GT in the future. So other than the
    PR hit that would result over jobs and bringing manufacturing back
    to America, after the lawyers wring what remains of GT dry, it will
    get thrown away like a grease rag.

    You have proved once again that the value of reading SA articles
    on stocks of interest lies not in the article, but in the wisdom and
    knowledge of some of the commentary. Thank you for your input.
