I'm glad for a different reason. Bought the dips all the way down and now selling the rips all the way up. XCO giveth this day our daily bread.
Thanks for sharing. I asked questions to that effect last week after the earnings conference call but have received no reply. Did Amy Vogel happen to explain why they filed the S-1 with contradictory language (i.e., pre-split share counts, pending consent solicitation proposals, etc.)? I presume the answer relates to communication restrictions during the stages of the offering process but would prefer to know rather than presume.
LOL. That's the gal NBR had to drop because her stock recommendations were unmitigated disasters. The periodic performance reviews were embarrassing, even to the casual viewer. ONTY fits right in her portfolio.
This question is asked repeatedly. TSO's float is 20% of VLO's (118M v. 518M), and free cash flow per share 13% higher ($8.47 v. $7.52).

First time I ever have observed so much focus by a CEO on retail investors, even for an OTCBB stock. Maybe that changes with a NASDAQ listing.

Statement as of 7:25 am CST on November 11, 2014
... Much colder temperatures today through Friday with the first
freeze of the season possible in some areas later this week...
A strong cold front will move through south central Texas this
morning. Temperatures this afternoon will remain in the lower 50s
across The Hill Country and central Texas to the upper 50s to
near 60 across southern areas. By Wednesday morning temperatures
will dip into the mid and upper 30s across The Hill Country and
central Texas to low 40s elsewhere. Highs on Wednesday will only
be in the upper 40s to to mid 50s... with it feeling even colder
with a brisk north wind.
Even colder temperatures are expected Thursday... with lows across
some locations in the northern Hill Country possibly dipping to
the freezing mark... and upper 30s to around 40 elsewhere. Highs on
Thursday will only range from the mid 40s to low 50s.
At this time... freezing temperatures of 28 to 32 degrees are
expected Friday morning along and north of a Rocksprings to Medina
to Boerne to New Braunfels to Austin line. There is the
possibility of this line being extended slightly farther south in
the coming days... as models have been trending colder. South of
the line low temperatures in the mid and upper 30s are expected
Friday morning. Highs on Friday will only be in the upper 40s to
Can't argue with the visceral reactions to the certainty of a reverse split and dilution, but there's a bigger story here. I do believe institutional investors and various funds will want to own shares in an emerging biotech company with increasing sales. Such interest usually translates into share price appreciation, especially if the float can stay below 50 million shares. I'm voting affirmatively and holding my position.
Although I agree with you, secondary offering seems to have supplanted the correct term, follow-on offering, in many venues. Even Investopedia defines a secondary offering as both "the issuance of new stock for public sale from a company that has already made its initial public offering" and "a sale of securities in which one or more major stockholders in a company sell all or a large portion of their holdings." Kind of like "less" has usurped "fewer" in undisciplined use of the English language.
Perusing the S-8, this could be as simple as following a trend in eliminating stock option grants in favor of restricted stock awards. Such a move may involve compensating current plan participants with additional restricted stock to replace value of withdrawn stock option grants. Good news would be that restricted stock is considered less dilutive (higher value requires not as many shares to be issued) and better aligns plan participants' interests with shareholders' interests (value dependent on market share price).
Old news before EIA issued the weekly petroleum inventories report showed lower than expected stocks for both. Try to keep up.
TSO earned $3.06 a share versus a $2.15 estimate. VLO earned $2.00 a share versus a $1.57 estimate. TSO also has a lower float, which magnifies the market reaction.
VLO already had run $3 since last Wednesday in anticipation of an earnings beat after its peers beat handily.
You got that right. They are talking about it right now on the CNBC Fast Money Halftime Report.
I heard the trading is not willful, that the last of the energy traders are getting margin calls as crude prices continue to dip. They have to sell some winners to make up the difference if they are underwater on crude futures.
