If birds are so insignificant they why did the Obama administration haul seven oil and natural gas companies into federal court for killing 28 migratory birds that were found dead near well locations?
Yup. The beer is cooling.
But, now that VW is saying it will take a couple of months for the independent report to be complete, it might be mid-winter before you can cash in. It's fine with me if you want to change the bet to a warm, cozy latte, soy or otherwise.
Agreed jack. My fear is that FRO could spike a dollar or two the day after I sell, which has happened before. I've also seen FRO drop considerably after a nice rise, making me wonder why I held on. That's why I have a portion that I am holding just in case of a spike, while I lock in an acceptable profit on the rest. Do you know anyone who has a crystal ball?
always good to take your profit off the table or step it down......I sold small amount to take my profit off the table, believe it can go higher.........
scs I went to the ILAB webb site and I encourage you to visit it yourself and find out all the good work they do against the child labor situation. I can only hope and believe you see this as a problem that needs some kind of action if you do this agency is the "POINT" dog for the Fed Gov in that area. If you go to the webb site you will see that they give grants to different charities of all religions to work to "help" the kids. I do not know how much their budget now is but clearly the GOP wants to end it or cut it. If they succeed in doing this what is the answer for child labor abuse? To cut is easy but when this is cut no one in Gov will have a budget to the kids or to work with foreign Gov to police child labor sites or do anything. Do you really think this is a "smart answer" to the child labor abuse problem?
If you do then I am sure your congress man alone with both your senators will be glad you support their action to cut this agency while they all preach family values and deep concern for children which they do not give a hoot in hell about outside of the US were it might cost them votes if their buddies were caught abusing children in this country.
Go to the webb site and see what will stop if the budget stops and ask yourself 1. do I care
If you do then 2. What can I do or what is the plan the GOP has for protection of these kids? I am all for protecting kids in the womb just as I am the 85 million out of the womb and at the mercy of greedy abusers of children.
scs first of all your are not an indy not even close to an indy nor am I. There is NO Demo you would vote for for President that has a chance to run if any at all. I feel the same way about the GOP so save the indy claim we don't make that group.
Obama did want to go at Syria as you said and the GOP being the GOP blocked him for no other reason that obama wanted it so they were against it. No indy's there either. Would things of been better if Obama had went in? Risky at best since IT IS THE MIDDLE EAST. But unlike now Russia was not involved to the degree they are now. ISIS was not involved either at least to be seen. But Syria is a total mess. Al Quada is there is believe it or not more our friend than we view Isis as is Assad now more friend than foe (snap shot time frame) Assad has not went after ISIS and they are not going after him either at least as much as both are going after other rebels. Russia has always been Assad protector and supplier of arms as such their bombing targets are not the same as the "West" was and remains.
Syria being a total mess and full of terrorist and rebels and all the major powers and Assad is a powder keg of a mess that any mistake by a major player could really get scary fast.
At this time Syria and all its messes is of no threat to oil or Israel in any real way so why should the US care? 2013 might of been a good time but the "win" would of been fast or cheap in lives and money and Obama might be glad the GOP stopped him. Now the GOP has a real Syria problem having stopped Obama they must now appear to know what to do which they do not. (who does?) Safe way is to do what we are doing target what you want avoid a bigger conflict with Russia or Assad as they do the same and pick the targets. Not much to be gained in that but safe. We could get out but that would be too smart for either party to do. We could go in blast everything to ashes and rule with iron fist. Good luck with that.
Congrats on your sale. I think the trend for next 3 months is UP from here. I do not trust myself right now to do some timing unless we get a huge jump one day then I might sale 25% of my position but be ready to buy back in. I am using FRO as a " tool" to get ride of losses on other stock so I take my profit and buy back in which gives me gains to write off losses and still keeps me in what I think is an upward market with a higher cost value. This has worked for me so far on FRO and with that in mind I have a $ amount that I will unload some shares to take a profit but also buy back in shortly after to not miss what I think the trend to be.
If these rates stay up where they are now I think 5 bucks is really possible. Once some of the unknowns are known and they are better than some are expecting and with a dividend this stock should finally see above 5 again. Nothing wrong with buying and selling alone the way as I admit I have done but right now I like the next year in FRO. Some correction can be expected but I do not see it going down below 2.75 IF the rates remain above 75,000 for VLCCF and if they stay above 100,000 the stock at some point is going to move up a lot. IMHO
I tried to post a link, but I will tell you this. While you have 2-3 ft. of snow on your roof, unless you are using heat tape to melt it off your panels, they won't produce much. That being said, if you go to enphase and then link to public views, you can pick various parts of the country to see how well people's panels are producing. I picked one home in Frazee, MN. Is that snowy and bad enough for you in the winter? It is by Detroit Lake. If you go to the site, you will see that one home there with 25 235 watt poly panels (less efficient in low light), you will see that the owner's worst production was for the month of Dec. with 301 kwh produced. This is well more than half of what I use on average. During the summer, the same owner was producing close to 900 kwh per month with same system.
Although it doesn't list the angle the panels are installed, it shows azimuth. Ideal angle would be latitude. So when you are trying to point out that during winter, panels are useless where you live, you are just showing your ignorance. Enjoy doing some research.
yeh you do... you got your #$%$ handed to you on fro,, no post no credit, unless you want to copy and paste the buy and sell where you said you didn't post.
whipsawrick, I have too often held too long only to see the bottom fall out again. I would rather take "enough" than miss out on a good up/down cycle because I was too greedy. I hope you are doing well.
Unlike you scs I don't post everytime I buy or sell.I did post the last time I bought FRO.
Funny how you post all your buy sells except that great buy at 2.30.You are a bad joke.
I wouldn't mind either way daniel. But I really hope/suspect that FRO has a bit more to appreciate before the next big drop. I think, going forward, the lows will be higher than before as will the highs. This one should be on a nice upward "average" slope, but will still have large percentage ups and downs along the way. I plan to play the swings rather than wait for a dividend.
