    "Denbury intends to use the net proceeds from the offering to fund all or substantially all of the costs of its repurchase of all $996.3 million aggregate outstanding principal amount of its 81/4% senior subordinated notes due 2020, for which a tender offer and consent solicitation was announced earlier today," the company said."

    Lower interest rate, longer expiration date... And perhaps a few dollars left over for investment but certainly not $1B so I doubt that they are even looking at Swift... How much of them do you own? If they are soaring based upon rumors then you might want to buy some puts as insurance

  • From Zoe’s Yahoo Business Summary: As of February 24, 2014, the company and its franchisees operated 111 restaurants in 15 states. Zoe's Kitchen, Inc. was founded in 1995 and is based in Plano, Texas.

    From Jamba’s Yahoo Business Summary: As of December 31, 2013, it had 851 stores, including 268 company-owned and operated stores; and 535 franchise-operated stores in the United States, as well as 48 franchise-operated international store locations. The company was founded in 1990 and is headquartered in Emeryville, California.

    Based on the little the market knows about Zoe’s it is currently valuing their company close to $500 Million

    Based on the long term history of Jamba the market is valuing their company close to $200 Million

    I happen to like Jamba but wish there was a way to catch some of the IPO craze here…

    Sentiment: Buy

    Only if they go private then come out as a fresh IPO... Today Zoe's Kitchen came public with a valuation approximately 33% higher than Jamba... It is now trading at nearly 2.5 Jamba's valuation... LOL, a fool and their money (probably took advice from Kramer)

    I realize that we're not comparing Apples to Apples yet IMHO, Jamba has a lot more growth potential and is extremely undervalued in comparison.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Where to after the next earnings...

    Can't imagine anyone having better earnings than Facebook. The first quarter tends to be a difficult quarter for many but advertisers still want to advertise and there's no better place than Facebook

  • If viewing time is up and ad time is up... I wonder where the price will be?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • If so this is very close to a long term baseline...

    IMHO, things are starting to look a bit oversold :)

    Just today, Chevron publicly announced that it expects future oil prices to go much higher!

    John Watson, the CEO of Chevron, told analysts “bullish on oil” because of output declines at mature fields, political constraints on production in many parts of the world, and the rising cost of finding and developing new oilfields.

    Chevron raised the price assumption it uses for its projections from $79 per barrel for internationally traded Brent crude to $110 per barrel... That is significantly higher than what is implied by the futures market, which shows that the price of oil is expected to fall.

    The combination of 95% Oil and 5% Nat Gas doesn't sound too bad right now; in fact, with recent drops one might say that Denbury is becoming an attractive investment idea.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Doesn't this company supply both oil and nat gas?

    If so then this is about the only company whose price has fallen while the demand for Nat Gas has gone up!

    Tis something to think about????

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Signs of strong buying into the close each of the last few days

  • I'd like to see something, anything?

  • I put in a order to buy a block of shares and a fraction of a second later the computers decided they wanted those shares... Don't believe it can happen that way... Watch really closely on level 2 the next time you place an order for a block of any real size... Personally I find it amazing how stupid some software programs are; then again, they are designed to determine if investors will chase a price then buy and sell for a few pennies gained here and there... Yep, I know it sounds crazy but I watch a lot of level 2 and see it happen all the time :)

    For awhile that sounded like Zagg's best hope for a bright future, but delay after delay and only a few silly customers makes one wonder if HzO might have too much competition... I see no potential for HzO unless cell phone manufacturers, camera manufacturers, wearable manufacturers, laptop manufacturers or Apple adopts the technology. Thus far they have one or two customers (whose products look like they should already be waterproof) claiming to use the technology... Big whoop!

    Subject Antibioticos still an option?

    From last year's press...

    Ships sailing north from Chile are bringing an unusual cargo to the U.S.: chemical factories. Methanex (MEOH), the Canadian company that’s the world’s largest producer of methanol, is spending $1.1 billion to disassemble two of its Chilean factories and rebuild them in Geismar, La. The first plant is scheduled to open next year. A second will be relocated by early 2016.

    Scores of other companies including ExxonMobil (XOM), Chevron (CVX), and Sasol (SSL) plan to spend about $100 billion to build or expand chemical plants in the U.S., according to a tally kept by Dow Chemical (DOW), the biggest U.S. chemical maker by sales. Dow is spending $4 billion to build factories in Freeport, Tex., and reopen a plant in Hahnville, La., creating 500 manufacturing and 5,000 construction jobs. Five years ago the company was closing U.S. plants and moving production to the Middle East to gain access to cheaper raw materials and be closer to Asian markets.

    The resurgence of the U.S. chemical industry can be explained in two words: natural gas. The shale boom has made the U.S. the lowest-cost chemical producer outside the Middle East. Gas prices have fallen by three-fourths since 2005, a boon for chemical makers that use it as a raw material and to power factories. Employment in chemicals is rising, after falling 29 percent over the previous three decades, according to Kevin Swift, chief economist at the American Chemistry Council, a trade group. The U.S. logged a trade surplus of $800 million in chemicals in 2012, its first since 2001. Swift expects the surplus to swell to $46 billion by 2020. “If anyone asked me even four years ago, ‘Would you ever see world-scale commodity chemical plants being built in the U.S.?’ I would have said categorically ‘no,’ ” says Paul Harnick, global chief operating officer for chemicals at KPMG.

    The whole idea of setting up shop in Spain appeared like a good one when it became clear that parts of Europe were more environmentally friendly than the US and that Europe wanted biodegradable plastic bags, but with the problems at Antibioticos and the development of performance additives and biobased chemicals… I believe that one could make a very good case to either partner with a domestic chemical manufacturer or use a shuttered facility (probably somewhere in Michigan or nearby) to mass produce products for the Americas… Don’t get me wrong, I think plastic bags are a very important part of the business yet the Americas have mile after mile of ocean fronts and this is where biodegradable plastics need to be sold… We should be looking to partner with environmental groups all over the world to make sure they know of the alternatives and how companies like Metabolix can help to make a cleaner healthier future. There’s zero pressure to make the big plastic companies move to environmentally smart choices like Mirel; sure many are making products that are recyclable but those products don’t break down when accidentally blown or washed into our oceans.

    Earnings and Guidance

    When are earnings?

  • LOL, I bet that caught your attention! IMHO, Metabolix makes a product that could be used by many 3D companies and their scientists should certainly be looking closely at that market.

    I’ve been letting this one ride for awhile and focusing on my other investment, but I have to say, the addition of Shaulson to the executive team is the most promising sign I've seen in years… Miracles aren't going to happen overnight yet his addition (and Eno's retirement) appears to be a huge step in the right direction. Time will tell if I’m right yet I believe now is the time for shorts to cover and go long.

    Good luck to all investors here! May 2014 finally be our year!!!

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
