    prime example, if he sold today at 10.50, that is a 4% gain in 24 hours. What did the S&P return last year 20%? and that was a record setting year too. 20% of yearly gains in one day sounds fantastic to me

  • PRAGUE—A fall in natural gas flows from Russia to several Central and Eastern European countries this week has sent a chill through the region as it prepares for possible energy shortages this winter.

    Austria's energy regulator E-Control and oil and gas company OMV AG OMV.VI -1.39% both said on Friday that gas shipments from Russia were down 15% from previously ordered volumes.

    The decline in supplies to Austria began Thursday and was expected to continue through Friday, said Robert Lechner, of OMV's press office.

    "Until now we are not aware of the specific reasons for this," Mr. Lechner said.

    Slovakia's gas distributor SPP said Thursday its daily gas intake from Russia fell 10% below contracted levels starting late Wednesday. Polish gas company PGNiG PGN.WA -1.18% said its gas flows from Russia had fallen 45% below contracted daily volumes by Thursday, though the gap narrowed somewhat on Friday.

    As in Slovakia and Poland, E-Control and OMV said the reduced supply of gas from Russia wouldn't create any problems for the gas system.

    Signs that Russia is already cutting supplies come as it remains at loggerheads with Ukraine over gas prices amid ongoing tension between the two countries. Moscow is demanding Kiev pay $385 per thousand cubic meters for its gas, a price the economically stressed Ukraine is unwilling to pay. Russian gas flows to Ukraine have been cut off since June.

    The European Union's Energy Commissioner Günther Oettinger on Friday proposed Sept. 20 as a date to restart trilateral talks between Russia, Ukraine and the EU on terms of Russian gas sales to Ukraine. Mr. Oettinger's office was still waiting for a Russian response late Friday.

  • The fields around Grabova and Debaltseve became the focus of international attention as the crash site of Flight MH17. But along the roads leading to the villages are reminders, on the scarred landscape, of another casualty of Ukraine’s civil war which will have a huge impact in the coming months – the coal mines that have been closed down. An energy crisis, started when Vladimir Putin cut off the gas from Russia, has been severely exacerbated by the disruption of coal supplies. This country is facing the prospect of the grimmest of winters; the threat of cities starved of fuel for heating and delivery of food while, at the same time, facing artillery and air strikes.

  • US and EU sanctions against Moscow are in danger of turning round and biting the west by constraining global oil supply and pushing up prices in coming years, the former chief executive of BP has warned. Tony Hayward said that cutting off capital markets from Russia’s energy groups, which would eventually lead to less investment in Russian oil production, was likely to damage long-term supply. He said the US shale boom had obscured the growing risks to the world’s supply picture, but its effect would wear off, leaving the global economy dangerously exposed to potential disruptions in the flow of oil. His comments came as the US and Europe expanded sanctions against Russia on Friday with the US adding Gazprom , Europe’s leading energy provider, and Lukoil , the privately owned oil group, to the list

  • The EU is also drawing up contingency plans that would ban companies from selling tanker cargoes of liquefied natural gas (LNG) outside Europe and order industry to stop using gas. LNG is produced by liquefying the gas to 1/600th of its original size.

    Concern about a European energy crisis stems from the dispute between Russia and Ukraine over Crimea and eastern Ukraine. This prompted Moscow to halt gas supplies to Ukraine in June and talks to settle the dispute have since broken down.

    No, he will hold until is pops up 50 cent or a dollar. Anyone with a brain who looks at the chart can see someone can make good quick money by doing so. Kel and I have been doing this for the past year. Take my 5% and bail til its back where I bought in. Hell do that 5 times a year and your looking at a 25% ROI. Not bad at all and that's only @ 5 times a year!

  • Russia cut gas exports to Europe by 60 per cent today, plunging the continent into an energy crisis 'within hours' as a dispute with Ukraine escalated.
    This morning, gas companies in Ukraine said that Russia had completely cut off their supply.
    Six countries reported a complete shut-off of Russian gas shipped via Ukraine today, in a sharp escalation of a struggle over energy that threatens Europe as winter sets in.
    Bulgaria, Greece, Macedonia, Romania, Croatia and Turkey all reported a halt in gas shipments from Russia through Ukraine.
    Croatia said it was temporarily reducing supplies to industrial customers while Bulgaria said it had enough gas for only 'for a few days' and was in a 'crisis situation'.

  • More than 70 percent of Germany’s energy supply depends on imports. Russia alone accounts for a quarter of Germany’s gas, oil and coal imports. And real alternatives are not yet in sight.
    The most important energy supplier is Russia: It provides 38 percent of Germany's natural gas imports, 35 percent of all oil imports and 25 percent of coal imports, covering a quarter of the country's entire energy needs. There are no suitable alternatives in sight that could cover shortfalls of this magnitude.

  • WARSAW, Sept 10 (Reuters) - Poland said on Wednesday it was receiving 20 percent less gas than normal from Russia and a German gas operator said its supplies of Russian gas were slightly reduced.

    Some European officials believe Moscow could use disruptions to the gas deliveries on which Europe depends as its trump card in a confrontation over Ukraine that has already brought ties between Moscow and the West to their lowest since the Cold War.

    Russian gas monopoly Gazprom issued a statement saying it was pumping gas to all destinations "according to the resources available for exports and for the continuing pumping to storage facilities in the Russian Federation".

  • * Poland says volumes being delivered down about a fifth

    * Germany's E.ON reports slight reduction in volumes

    * Gazprom saying shipping as much gas as it is able to

    * EU fears that Ukraine row could spill over into gas war (Updates throughout)

    And what? You'll hold SFY to 10.20? Investors!

  • Compared it to XCO. SFY much better. SFY over 15 years reserve life, XCO only about 6 -7 years. SFY cash flow ratio is better value. SFY better cash flow / debt ratio.

    Still holding. Have been there for 3+ years in varying amounts.

    Looking at SFY again. Maybe XCO and CHK as well. Natgas might be a better play than oil at this time. Tables might be turned after several years of oil focus. SFY still close to 2/3s natgas production.

  • August oil and gas production at both locations (Texas and Louisiana) are much higher than July.

  • The whole problem with SFY is, I repeat is, buying and selling assets.Terry Swift usually pays 2 to 3 times the worth of the assets he buys and sell at distressed prices when his debt is so high that bankruptcy looms. He has done this for over 10 years now and the company debt is reaching into the stratosphere. The shorts are circling in for the kill and Terry is totally oblivious.
