    • Good time to add here , or is this stock still a falling knife?

      They've had some good press, but so far not putting out the results.
      Is Marcellus really worth more than what they are carrying it on the books for?

      Is this a pure spec play at this point, or does it have enough of a foundation to become a player in the next 12 months?

      • Not a falling knife - trend is actually good since beginning of year. Lots of value here. Can they unlock it is the question. Most people seem to think so. Lots of good posts to read on this board.
        It is risky but that is why it is a good buy at the moment. Maybe not risky like TC is perceived to be. But lots anything can, and usually does happen.

        Sentiment: Buy

      • Good Luck with getting an answer. None of these people every reply with mature helpful matter. They only put you down and disrespect you for asking questions. Only thing they want to do is talk to each other by showing off who is a bigger alpha male. Sick and stupid.
