Incredible Who Seeking Alpha allows to give opinions!
Earlier this month(April 9) we had a Unemployed College graduate who probably could not get a job so he signed up for graduate school as a PHD Chemistry candidate admitting he had 2 years investing experience all while working on a chemistry PHD, telling us he was short ERF and why they would not be able to continue paying their already cut 50% dividend. Basically trashing ERF and advising "all is woe." Now, today just as all the north of the border Oil/NG producers are on a tear, we have another 2009 MBA graduate who most likely has been unemployed since finishing his MBA(4yrs ago), could not get a job, so for the last 4 years(still cannot get a job) he has been working on getting his CFA designation and doing Equity Research on his own. This qualifies him to tell us today in another Seeking Alpha article that ERF cannot afford the current dividend and basically paints a "GLOOM & DOOM" outlook for ERF, yet the CEO of International Oil Services Giant Schlumberger tells us the future is looking good for Oil and NG. Who are you going to believe that they know what the H--L is going own? 2 book worms who cannot find jobs or the Experience of a CEO of a Major player in the energy business? Seeking Alpha is losing any credibility they ever had fast. GLTA.
How is that different from someone who is long talking about how great a stock is? Is your view on ERF so shaky that it cannot tolerate someone talking negatively about your pick? Probably need to do more due diligence.
Given your comment history you have no business deciding who is and who isn't qualified to discuss their opinion on ERF.
