You bashers/shorters just don't get it.
You ever wonder why we went up today when the earnings missed it's target?
Why XTIX is trading higher than XTEX?
Why we opened up so low and had a mad rush to top?
Let me explain it simple and clear.
IT'S THE MARKET SENTIMENT.
Market is in buying frenzy. Big money that has been parked on sideline is coming back not wanting to miss this run. Commodities are at is lowest in years. Even though we have not come out of this economic turmoil, sentiments are that we are now moving upward.
Stock market's price is valued at what it will do in 6 months. Not what it did last quarter.
Losses were expected, unemployment expected, GDP expected as well as other attributes.
You have to be a total moron not to make money in this market if you just learn to hold it longer than few weeks.
I won't be selling mine anytime soon. At least for several years.

some big money can't buy xtex, only xtxi

differences (1) Xtex pays distributions to partners owners pretax, who
must pay the taxes, even if held in a 401k/ira, so retirement funds
must hold xtxi. Also xtxi has an arrangement with xtex that increases
xtxi income and dividends at a steeper rate than xtex at certain
levels of xtex distributions. That means that when things are going
well and xtex is raising distribution payouts, xtxi dividends go up
even more. However, those levels of xtex distributions are a ways off,
since in March, when management cut all payouts to $0, (forced by
their lenders in order to pay down their high debt) they stated they
did not expect any payouts to resume before 2010. I would expect that
if and when things get back to more normal (not too quickly imho) xtex
payouts will be biger than xtxi payouts for a while, since they won't
get to the level that accelerates xtxi payouts for some time. so the
spike in xtxi over xtex is a mystery to me.
The other thing going on right now is owners of both are voting on
revised employee stock purchase (and exchange) plans that have a $3
minimum strike price (or 120% of recent price) purchase price. the
former plans had something like a $30 minimum price- realistic a year
ago, not likely to provide any incentive to employees today (the new
plans don't include senior management). I am not sure if and how this
change would cause the kinds of action we have seen in the last couple
days. I think a poster on xtxi probably has it right, either its pump
and dump or we will get some very good news in the conference call

I like the way you are thinking. It is sort of like what haarvardphd was spouting on about what all those chart schemes, (anyone can read them on any of a dozen web sites), were saying how XTXI is not a good buy now. I remember on March 3,2009, when XTXI went into a tailspin and closed at $0.82/share. Barchart.com analysis the next day was a 100% SELL recommendation. Can you imagine that? If you sold at that point, who would you tell? How could you explain to someone, "Well, I did what the computer said do." Good luck trading.
It really is not a sceme
