      • David, did you take off your bigboy pants? Sure sounds like it. If you've made about a double on WNR then I would take 50% off the table and invest elsewhere. Like I said, WNR is not doing anything that will harm their PPS. So, it's how the general market and econ. goes. WNR can do better wtih an MLP on logistics and just continued strong profits for 2013. As far as where else to invest, I really don't like to go there. We all need to do our own DD. GLTY

    • they locked in cash flow when the balance sheet was far heavier loaded with debt. the %vol that is hedged in the forward mkt 2014-2015 trails down and nothing thereafter. opportunity lost, but was a good move to protect a % of cash flow.

      light volume intraday dip. i am adding a bit here and looking for analyst upgrades int he coming days/weeks.

      • I agree, it made a lot of sense when they were in survival mode. But, as you state "opportunity lost"
        Hindsight, but I thought they hedged months way to close when they first started. They obviously thought it was a flash in the pan. I currently think their 2014 and 2015 hedges look good. Things will settle down when the Brent/WTI spread melts.
