There is no way half the cars will be electric by 2022. Do you know what percentage of new car sales were electric in 2013? It was .62%. That's a little more than one half of one percent of sales. And you're telling us that half the cars on the road will be electric in just 8 years with sales not even 1%? I personally don't see a significant rise in electric car sales. It's just not practical for 75% of the country. It just gets too cold for battery power.
And the premise for electric is idiotic. Do you know where electricity comes from? The majority comes from coal, oil or nuclear. So electric cars do not reduce emissions; they just transfer those emissions to the generation of more electricity. The environmentalists never think any through to its logical conclusion.
Next year at this time, anyone buying BP will be celebrating big time. Oil cannot be sustained at these levels indefinitely. The commodity will rise, the current dividend is outstanding, and buyers will not be able to part with their cash fast enough to get on board. Right now oil is the best low risk fire sale in recent memory. I am loading up the truck with BP. It's the bargain of this century.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Next year at this time, anyone buying XCO will be celebrating big time. Oil and gas cannot be sustained at these levels indefinitely. The commodity will rise, the dividend will be reinstated, and buyers will not be able to part with their cash fast enough to get on board. Right now oil and gas are the best low risk fire sale in recent memory. I am loading up the truck with XCO and BP. It's the bargain of this century.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Bingo, Ray. That's my point. Revenue doesn't mean anything if net operating income is negative. I still like the stock. The range is great for the dividend and it's not a bad sell and buy back on the dips either.
Thanks. That's a much better explanation than net operating cash flow. So you are figuring that the stock price is going to bounce from 9-11 or so at least to earnings date? It's still a nice dividend within that price range don't you think?
Here is the link for the income statement. Please show me from where you are getting 244MM in net operating income. http://finance.yahoo.com/q/is?s=NAT+Income+Statement&annual
I was looking at the income statement from Dec of 2011. Net operating income was -73MM and the share price was between $14-15. If your numbers are correct and NAT ends up with a positive net operating income, I have no idea where the share price could land. I am still not sure from where you are getting these numbers. 2013 was produced negative net operating income of 105MM. I don't know how you are coming up with 244MM positive net operating income when the statement reads -105MM.
So the end of 2013, net operating income was (-105million). The back of your envelope estimates a positive 100 MM. So how do you put a share price to those numbers. So we go from $9-18? I don't know; I am asking what share price to you associate with your estimate? Thanks
I took my 30% in one month today at $110. I like BABA, but fully expect that the 10% correction we just had with the immediate recovery was a head fake. I expect another 10%+ correction within this quarter or soon after the first of the year. However, if you have a long term view of BABA, then I wouldn't worry about it one way or the other. I am playing the stock until I can form a fairly low basis and then I am just going to hold.
It doesn't matter. The damage has been done and this is not going back to $3 for a long time if ever, particularly if this company is a fraud. Have you seen all the law firms reaching out to those who have lost money in the downturn? That litigation alone is going to take this stock down and keep it down for a long time. Besides, in the midst of this correction there are too many good bargains out there with proven track records to screw around with Blue Earth. I saw a profit of 10% turn into a loss of 50% in one day. Sold and glad I did.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Not investing in these kind of stocks anymore. Even if the story is false, it's too easy to raid this kind of company and there is no protection for the long term investor. Yesterday I had a capital gain and now I have a capital loss. Just taking my loss and moving on. Very frustrating and very sad, but that's the world we live in today.
Noodles has been trading contrary to the market for about a week now. I have no idea what is driving these numbers against the trend of the market. However, I don't like it. It makes me quite nervous not knowing the why and wherefore of unexplained movement in price.
The yield has increased 14 basis points since your post. But what makes you think the market would crash if the 10 year U.S. treasury bond goes to 2% yield? My bet is that the market would soar with a 54 basis point decline in the yield.
