No, I'm just an old, disgruntled, former owner of some NLP units which were converted against my personal wishes, and votes, into this meandering cur of an "investment".
It seems to me that they took the good properties out of NLP and sold them off in order to subsidize their current acts of malfeasance involving a laundry list of non-cash, and low-cash, producing properties.
It is SO obvious that this thing has been run NOT for the benefit of the shareholders. The NYSE should be embarrassed to have it listed.
And, one day when Gene has accumulated as much as he can...it will be de-listed for lack of trading volume.
Shortly thereafter we will be offered a buyout at a price above what it was last traded at...but "sadly", way below what they believe it to be worth!
A few years hence the properties will be run the way that they should have been all along...and then sold for massive profits...ALL TO THE BENEFIT OF HIS CHILDREN!!!
I just wish that I could tell you how I really feel.
