Showed up on my landing page, too, but Yahoo! tailors the articles displayed based on user information. I had read the article off the landing page yesterday and may have a cookie my web browser retained or Yahoo! stored my IP address. Also, as a former shareholder (sold at $17, thank goodness), still have SPPI in an historical Yahoo! portfolio to track share price performance after I have sold to inform future decisions.
jet, you have prompted me to emerge from the shadows of non-participation. While your timetable may be aggressive, it's interesting to see you change your mind because a reply to one of my posts on the TSO board stuck in my mind (even prompting me to question my expectation of the eventual rise of electric cars). Welcome to the future!

You apparently do not understand the technology. Electric cars will be able to match gasoline-powered vehicle performance without the noise and pollution.

I'm buying stock in electric cord companies. Can you picture thousands of miles of electric cords all over the freeways as the traffic jams suck up all the battery power???
They may be able to build an electric car, but making it practical and useful is a complete different story...
Not so sure about natural gas prices taking off, but with "no near term liquidity concerns" per the CFO's conference call statement, this may be a tool from ruthless John's bag to get the likes of transportation partners to restructure the "significant amount of above-market rates and unused commitments" and KKR to settle their lawsuit. Otherwise, someone will be explaining in a deposition why XCO tanked the share price by threatening "restructuring in court" within ten days of reassuring investors, "We have $256 million of liquidity and we do not have any debt maturities until the middle of 2018. We remain liquidity focused to enhance our runway and continue implementing our improvement plan and we're evaluating additional capital structure initiatives."
