And you're "take" on owning XCO is? Can't dispute my facts. The stock is w/o a doubt a non performer. The future nobody can predict with some form of regularity other than these two facts: humans need water to survive and nobody gets out of this place alive sir.
If you truly were an employee (these boards are replete with phony nut cases) how about expounding on the SEVERE crew shortages internationally with UAL today? Their flights are CONSTANTLY short of crew members and foreign language people. Wife just flew an ORD-PVG trip and the Captain was 2 minutes away from going illegal on the return. No mandarin speaker on board so FA's had to "wing it" regarding language barriers. She has NEVER seen United so confused and upsetting. And she's been there 22+ years now.
CEO MUST GO for starters. This is summertime which is the best season for international (money making) flights and their short on crew people? Are you kidding me? Wife believes the CEO is trying to put UAL back into the BK courts. But your cost cutting speculation antics by the CEO makes VERY MUCH SENSE sir.
XCO continues to show less than good numbers. NG companies got whacked big time in July. As did small caps with the RUT index DOWN over 5% YTD. No CEO and a very somber conference call. NG prices still down about 10% YTD. Nothing here to hang one#$%$ on thus XCO down 15% YTD. Exporting is many a year away and who knows what the world will be paying for NG then. XCO switching to a more oil based producer is maybe a move in the right direction. Time will tell. I'd give anything to see that $9 price again. But now I sound like all the buyout speculators here. Wishful thinking is for kindergarten not the real world.
seadreams.... I agree 100%. Ross is XCO and that's why we're all here. XCO was suggested to me (after I asked my broker about the NG world and how to play it) and he bought me a couple thousand shares in this company. HOWEVER I did him about 10X better when I bought LNG at the same time. It's been a dream come true. By the way I now make my OWN investment decisions.
patient...I too am feeling the pain but you have to admit the shorts just love XCO and would do so to their own mother to make a fast buck. XCO needs BETTER NUMBERS to rid ourselves of these people. I'm disgusted I was even put into XCO. I could have just put it into DIS. Not rubbing anything just really PO'd here. And I apologize but true investing this is anything but.
When you're the stepchild you get the short end of the stick my friend. Just like XCO is getting. NG plays had a brutal July but when this happens the worst on that sector gets murdered even more so. That's what's happening with this company.
I think stocker4949 has a legite opinion and his play on UAL sounds pretty reasonable to me. As for AAPL? The 5.5" iPhone forthcoming will do well. Americans are into size. Bigger trucks, SUV's, TV's, etc., etc.. So yeah I also agree with your AAPL play.
Usually the Las Vegas routes are hated by the flying group due to all of the losers and down-and-out POS that Las Vegas covets. True summation believe me.
Not calling him stupid neither. I'm asking about his patience and YES mine is wearing thin. I agree patience is a virtue but when all is rising and yours is falling (for sometime now) it gets on one's nerves does it not???
