"Management is focused on drilling wells not the day to day machinations of the stock price."
If HK was a private corporation that would be all well and good. But they chose a public corporation structure so as to receive money from its IPO. Management respecting the "other" owners should be part of the company culture. What we have at HK is a complete distain for the common stockholder. If Floyd wished to waste company funds (1.2 billion write off) somehow that is to be tolerated by the common shareholder. The arrogance of this management team is similar to that at CHK and SD. In both cases it didn't end well for the CEOs. The hand writing is on the wall for HK.
