Well, big for FPP. 6,314 shares bought at $4.00 5 minutes after the closing bell but it was reported as a normal hours trade. The close was the high of the day. This stock has been acting all crazy the past few months, continuing to see highly unusual trading activity like the weird late closing trade.
Time for a beer.
An unbiased percentage change since June 9th from most of the o+g stocks I could think of.
Oil goes up. FPP goes down.
Oil goes down. FPP goes down.
Market goes up. FPP goes down.
Market goes down. FPP goes down.
True 3 months ago. True a month ago. True today. Manipulators have been here since May. Maybe someday they will study FPP at Wharton to study how a stock can fall almost every single day with no end in sight. Hopefully those in charge will finally start to believe me and fight back. Don't let this continue without a fight.
AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- FieldPoint Petroleum Corporation (NYSE/MKT: FPP) today provided an update on recent drilling activity.
FieldPoint successfully recompleted its University Z1 well in Andrews County Texas. The well formerly produced from the Devonian formation but was perforated and acidized in the Wolfcamp zone and has begun to produce oil. The jet pump was re-installed, but a casing repair will be required before the well begins full production. The Company also reactivated the State of Texas Z2 well on the same property. Oil flow was re-established from the Devonian formation after some remedial work, but the Z2 will also need casing repair before it can be returned to production. Phillip Roberson, FieldPoint President and CFO, stated, "We are pleased with the initial results from the workover of these wells and expect to have them both on production in October. We anticipated the possible need for casing repairs since we are dealing with almost thirty year old casing."
The Company is waiting for the Bureau of Land Management permit to begin drilling the Quinoco Sulimar #2 in Chaves County, New Mexico, in the Queens formation. Mr. Roberson Stated, "We are very excited about getting underway with this well due to the performance of the offsetting well, the Quinoco Sulimar #1, but understand that Federal permits often take longer to obtain than initially planned. Our plans still include completing this well in 2014."
FieldPoint also plans to recomplete its Andrews County, Texas Arrowhead #1 well in the Devonian formation later in the year. This well has formerly produced in the Ellenberger zone.
Finally, the Company announced that it is currently producing four horizontal Taylor Sand wells in its Ranger project. Mr. Roberson stated "We are still very excited about this project, but the first four wells convinced us that 3D seismic data could significantly improve our efficiency..."

Hey cary, long time no see. Every day since May, someone is purposely selling shares below market value in an effort to drive down the price. They are constantly placing limit sell orders lower than the market price so the price has nowhere to go but down. Since it's happened every day since May, they mean business and are here to stay. Since someone is purposely losing a lot of money to get the price down, they have an end game in mind. I can't be sure if they are driving down the price to buy the company cheaper or whether it's the stock specialist doing this for personal gain...but I absolutely know for sure it's happening There's a very small short position so it's not to make money shorting the stock. In many ways, it is an EDAC situation. FPP's market cap has fallen $10 million since June 9th so if they are doing this to buy the company, they are very shrewd unless they get caught which is becoming increasingly likely. Keep watching this for price stabilization before getting in, also keep an eye on the price of oil as the two are linked. Oil has been falling due to a very strong dollar and weak overseas economies but OPEC is probably going to announce a cutback in production to put a floor underneath the price of oil. If oil prices stabilize or go higher, this would be the stock to buy.
Who's taking credit? I'm not running the company. I was complaining about manipulation starting in May when the stock price was still rising. Now it's down ~31% since then. That is not coincidence. I've been following FPP since 2005 so I know what normal looks like. Starting in May, everything changed and nothing has been normal. Speaking of psycho, I'm not the one with 30 or more aliases which took me a few minutes to figure out.
I've only seen this type of manipulation once before and 6 months after I figured out what was going on, the company announced it was bought out. The private equity firm that bought the company was spending hundred of thousands of dollars forcing the stock lower and ultimately saved millions buying the company at a much lower price. That is what I believe is going on here. Everyone that doubted me when it happened with the other company thanked me hand over fist when the buyout was announced because I had been saying that was happening for months and nobody else believed me. I don't expect anyone to believe me here but I see what is going on while everyone else believes that Wall Street would never possibly manipulate a small company like FPP. Wake up.
I will say that the long term structure of a bullish dollar looks strong (ie the weekly and monthly chart), but the daily chart is the one that's massively overbought so I am only looking to week's end for the lower dollar and stronger oil. Most oil stocks (other than FPP) look strong today, especially AXAS which I think you've been in recently.
Interestingly, as overbought as the US dollar is, FPP is even more oversold than that. I've had to go back to economic crises and plunging oil prices to find similar chart characteristics. Either FPP is going to do so magic and soar really soon, or it will continue to spiral out of control due to what I have been saying for months. Until the trend changes, I fear the latter.
Yesterday I placed a massive short-term bet for the dollar to fall and for oil to go higher. The dollar is more overbought than I have seen in years, and with the Fed speaking tomorrow afternoon, I figure it will dive. The lower dollar would mean oil/gold/commodities will all get a boost. Whether that translates to a bump in FPP is doubtful since other forces are at work but my bet yesterday on oil turning higher is working out so far.
Read the last PR and then google it. You will see that DTS8 is opening the store in September 2014 and JVA is licensing the Don Manuel brand to them for reselling.
If that is too difficult for you, I will share my homework.
"We [JVA], in conjunction with our license agreement with DTS8 Coffee Company, will be opening our first "Café de la Don Manuel" coffee shop this September in Shanghai. As the owner of the propriety name Don Manuel, which DTS8 has licensed from us, Coffee Holding Co. will receive a percentage of the sales revenues from all products bearing the Don Manuel trademark. Through this arrangement with DTS8, we will expand our footprint in the rapidly growing Chinese coffee market. This further develops our presence in this market with our current history of selling our branded and green coffee products in the Chinese coffee market at the wholesale level over the past several years," Mr. Gordon continued."
SHANGHAI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DTS8 Coffee Company, Ltd. (OTCBB:BKCT) (OTCQB:BKCT) (BERLIN:9BE) announced today that the Joint Venture’s first ‘Café de la Don Manuel,’ located at 150 East Jing Ling Road, Shanghai, is on schedule to open in October 2014.
"We project a profitable business venture and plan to unveil our first shop by September 2014, with 5 more slated to open first quarter 2015.”
Don't believe me? Here is the manipulation in action. The current stock price is $3.98. The asking price is $3.93.
If someone places a market buy order, the stock falls over 1%. This is what has been happening daily since May. FPP has NOWHERE to go but down.
Oil is up. The markets are up. FPP will be down in a few minutes. The asking price is continuing to be dropped lower by the manipulator so FPP has to go down.
The "Cafe de la Don Manuel" coffee shop is opening in Shanghai this month. JVA will receive a percentage of sales revenues from all products sold bearing the Don Manuel trademark. 5 additional stores are being planned on opening in China in the first quarter of 2015.
No idea how much revenue this will generate or what percentage of sales they will receive. But it is good that JVA will start receiving revenue in China and there won't be much expense associated with it because it is a licensing deal.
The US dollar is going to fall this week, probably starting on Wednesday. It is more overbought than I have seen it in years. I figure it will happen after the Fed releases a statement from their quarterly 2 day meeting Wednesday afternoon. Oil (and gold and commodities in general) should all get a boost from this.
Can't imagine management expected this knowing they did a stock buyback at $6.50 during this last quarter. The company can use serious public relations help.
how much lower the price has to go before everyone realizes I was right all along. A manipulative attack on FPP's stock price began in May as I have pointed out many times since it started and their attack will not stop until they achieve their objective.
Cost/benefit? They wanted to go after Bin Laden before the attacks but didn't. Lessons should be learned from this. You cannot put a "cost/benefit" price on the casualties of 9/11 and the aftermath and the psyche of this nation. Go after terrorists before they strike.
JVA, one year ago, was the same price as it is today. Back then they had a 9 month loss of $1.4 million and today a 9 month profit of $3.4 million. And, there are now less shares. Management has made an effort to become more profitable and they have been successful doing so. If JVA had higher sales but the same $2 million loss they had Q3 2013, it would be punished just the same.
The P/E ratio has now dropped to 12 and will likely drop even further after Q4. The balance sheet looks healthy. To me, it looks like the company is on the right track to sustained profitability. They should announce another buyback.
The only issue (to me) is whether Green Mountain has cut back on purchases from everyone until November when they finally raise coffee prices, or whether they have cut back purchases from JVA specifically. JVA has shown improved profitability regardless of the answer to that question. To me, this looks like an incredible bargain. I wouldn't listen to the people predicting $4 or $5, people will short a stock with 100 shares and start ranting on message boards that the price will go lower. The numbers look good and that is ultimately what matters.
Aha! There is a 2 day Fed meeting which ends on Wednesday. The US dollar will start falling this week and the statement after the Fed meeting concludes could very well be the trigger. We may have to wait until Wednesday for the dollar to fall and oil to go higher but I'm a betting man and feel the Fed meeting may be the trigger for that to happen.
Well, here you go. Front page of Bloomberg news:
"Islamic State militants set fire to an oil storage tank at Iraq's largest refinery as the US prepares to escalate the campaign against the extremist group."
These are the types of stories the media could overplay to boost oil.
The markets are rigged anyway and the media along with them. The media can start turning the fact that the US strengthened sanctions against Russia (especially energy companies) on Friday into a big deal (which it's not) and oil would get a boost from that. The dollar is so extremely overbought right now I would be surprised if there weren't a correction starting next week.
The US has officially declared on Friday it is at "war" with ISIS. Of course, Obama's massive buildup includes about 400 troops. He is a coward and a wimp. At any rate, I expect the media to latch onto SOME news next week that will cause the dollar to decline and give a boost to oil.
For the short term, the US dollar is massively overbought. There is almost certainly going to be a correction to the dollar within days and oil will get a boost from this.
I don't know what news will take the dollar down against other currencies but just looking at the charts, the dollar is historically as overbought as it's been in many years and almost certainly has to fall for at least a short period.
