    I wanna start my own co. some day & announce great exclusive negotiation deals coming soon..

    Here's an idea:

    I am just thinking out loud of wanting to start my own co. some day. Then maybe I will project an aura to the world that a great deal is coming which will rock the entire world and make the investors millionaires upon a possible buyout of my co very very soon.

    Then stock will rise like crazy temporarily with that brilliant strategy of mine. Then I will keep silent for months and years. Even then all the investors will be my loyalists, no matter what I do to them, they will sing my praises, they will be my pumpers, my foot soldiers, no matter how low the stock goes from that high level, even if MY imaginary co. goes 6 ft under eventually, they will keep me on a high pedestal and tell everyone how promising my co. is. and how great I am.

    Why did I not think of this idea before? Can I do it? Should I. Will you join my company's exclusive pumpers club

    Sentiment: Hold

    • Make sure you pay yourself $7 or $8 million per year to give an extra air of legitimacy. Then hire they Chairman's son. Then hire your brother-in-law for $4 million to handle government relations. When the government relations go in the tube and also sink the company, pay him $millions more. Don't forget to say "acceleration" in every other sentence. I'd also recommend only allowing 1 or 2 carefully chosen guys to ask any questions on conference calls.

      You don't need to overthink getting a legion of touts. As the years tick by they will develop Stockholm syndrome and fall in love with their captors.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

      Very kool. Even better, why not go drill some more wells, say in the Montana Bakken or in offshore Africa some place. Go pump those "developments" and keep the stranded Asia/Pacific wells on the 'backburner'. Just cycle around between the 3 global areas depending on what can be hyped. Loyal investors will have even more to be excited about! More possibilities! Limitless potential! If single isolated bagholders become disenchanted, so what? Let them pack their bags. You can always bring in more folks on the idea that they are the lucky ones who didn't have suffer through earlier disappointments, they are the lucky ones who are just about to enter the promised land!!! Just make sure you keep the float low enough not to get too bloated and find hedge funds who like working with you! Wooooo Hooooo!!!!!

      Lord have mercy!!! The possibilities are limitless!!!

      Sentiment: Sell
