    What Is Going On?

    Nothing but crap on this board, jerks trying to sell stock tips, how to invest, etc.....No information about this company for quite sometime. Has it gone belly-up? have they changed management? are they still in business? have they settled their lawsuits? It would be nice to hear from somebody in the know....Thanks...

    • "Apocalyptic visions in the stock market and we have Tweedle Dumb and Tweedle Dee in the Woodlands buying back their own stock.

      Company Tools like coloradomudman saying "Super strong company, I happen to hold many shares and expect $10 to $12 soon. We have more work and profits than ever. STICK AROUND."

      The jig is almost up. Question: why is NR trading at around the same price as GM? We will soon know How the ceo has been propping up the stock. Once that happens, look for 2/share or less. That would be an accurate reflection of a company that has been ruined through poor management. Who is going to buy this dog then?"

      1.5 million shares to an all time low <$3/share: Looks like some end of year purging by institutional shareholders. Not sure why it took this long.

    • The yard is being reclaimed in Sublette county, 2 pits have been cleaned and recliamed. the operation up here is going good. slight delcine in rig count but that is the industry through out the U.S. Newpark is still the top dog in sublette county as far as drilling goes. New warehouse is opening up and while things are in the down mode, overall it is looking good. jmgood13

      Interesting....As of yesterday 12/29/08 the Newpark Yard at the Sand Draw Facility is closed in Sublette County,WY, the ponds you referred to are frozen over, yard is padlocked and sealed. The patent NR got from the Mexican Govt. to produce drilling water into potable water did not work, the process failed and State rejected it.

    • There is absolutely no substance to your rumor about Spectra.

      Thank you for your answer Irat. This came from a Shell Engineer in CO and later from a Pipeline Inspector in NM.
      Do you have any knowledge as to why NR yard is closed and sealed in Sublette County,WY leaving two large ponds full of debris and dead birds. Understand they have been banned from further operations in WY. Something took place in CO against NR also. Can you enlighten us? Thanks....

    • Management changed for the worse more than two years ago. That is old news. This bonehead ceo in the Woodlands, TX makes fresh news every day with record low stock prices and a screw-up-a-minute. A company this poorly run and floundering in the marketplace might attract some buyers, but who wants to buy? NR is still over-valued. Credit as locked up. SEC is sniffing around. Sharks may be circling, but they will wait until there is no fight left in the stock and then steal it away -- perhaps to go private with it. There is absolutely no substance to your rumor about Spectra. That makes no sense.

    • Yes, management has changed. What buy out from Spectra?

      Within the last 60-90 days there was talk that Spectra Energy was negotiating to buy out NR. Did anything come of it or was offer withdrawn by Spectra?

    • Yes, management has changed. What buy out from Spectra?

    • Only a dime away from another 52 wk low! Can't anybody state if they changed management or if the buy out from Spectra was called off?

    • Glad to be gone from that circus for almost two years now. I should write a thank you note to the consultants for "consolidating" my position.Best thing that ever happened, was blinded by the bull----, and don't miss making decissions for them. Their lost after nearly 9 years, that's right. This was how they showed their appreciation for the efforts that made them what they were PRE-Howes.

    • Super strong company, I happen to work and hold many shares and expect $10 to $12 soon. We have more work and profits than ever. STICK AROUND

        Color, can you throw any light on why NR was told to leave WY and State closed their yard for contamination? Their operation was shut down, yards are locked, pits of waste, dead birds, just awful? Sayu
