    • Not even remotely similar. ECA is a "real" company(getting hurt big time by low gas prices". DPTR was "the gang
      that couldn't shoot straight", swinging for the fences and striking out. Great story a month ago in the Denver Post
      on Roger Parker the old president of DPTR. He was "living the life" for a while.

    • I really do hope you can tell the difference.

      DPTR was in the turnaround/special situations basket where the hope is a ten bagger but where 2 or 3 out of 5 go bust.

      ECA is a core holding in the large cap value basket. It has HUGE assets and highly effective management and operations expertise. I have zero worries here. Right now (after the petrochina deal) ECA has $3 billion in cash in the bank. I do not think DPTR ever had that problem.
