    I was thinking about buying some KOG, why all the anger issues and bad language? From what ihave read it could be a good investment.

      These posters are not angry,they are just stupid and as Ron White says,you cant fix stupid.Look at the lowest price and buy,buy,buy.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • As always, do your homework. Right now, it looks like KOG is not only increasing its production at a high rate, but is also demonstrating the probability of multiples of the recoverable oil estimates from a year ago. The second point increases their future production by those multiples. There are some loquacious traders on the board who get angry when their short term guesses don't pan out. There are some investors with a solid core holding who trade in and out witha portion of their holdings to make additional money on this stock using its fairly large beta. There are some folks (I'm guessing these folks are savvy oil men) who bought when KOG was a penny stock and keep buying on dips as the stock continues upwards. (These comments are based on reading this board for the past 21/2 years.) For my part, i continue debating whether or not to sell a few covered calls, but don't like the possibility of selling my stake cheaply if it takes a big swing.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

      • I have part (40-50%) sold in covered calls. Also have some sold puts. Trade in and out of 10-20% and keep 40-50% in long term. I bought first shares at $1.35 so have been in for years. I have let stock get assigned on the covered calls, but other times have bought the calls back and sold new calls at higher strike price farther out. Same with buying back puts and reselling farther out. It is 3 ways of trading the same shares. I bought back Sept 10's on Tues and sold Mar 11's netting $.30 a share. Today, the next on doing it was much lower. Got them back, but not resold. I have them in multiple accounts. We hit a new forever high this morning. Old high was $10.90, then $11.08, then yesterday's high, and now $11.34 this morning. Today, I gave back on a lot of stocks that hit new highs so I do not think it is just KOG. My oil stocks all were hit, but so were other categories. I sold small lots of 500 shares as it moved up to resistance points, and will either buy back if it retraces, or sell puts to either make more or re-get the stock again.
        Guess what I am saying is there does not have to be just one way to play the shares. Also that you are not locked into the call, but if you let it go too much above the call price, more than next call option price, it is harder to make money and raise it the call option up without going out a year. Rolling the same price call farther out will net bigger bucks than raising the call price, but you lose the extra dollar or more in potential price. One thing to be aware of is your trade costs as they can eat up the profit.
        Just some thoughts.

    • We might see a dip under $11 short term you could load there or buy here it does not matter we are going higher! Ignore the bashers they are looking to make a few pennies on the weak hands! Don Corleone

    • You're listening to the Amen Choir from the "Short" section. Ignore them!
