    SLB Heading for 150!

    Well...all the way there will be share holders who think you're wrong and new owners who have more to lose. I personally feel like it is ripe for a rip higher and this isn't it. I hope you are correct but I won't be there the whole way......I think 135 is possible in the near term (6-9 months).

    Well, how much a stock is doesn't really matter when it comes to comparing two different companies. For example, GE is a 26/sh stock just like UPL....does that mean they are actually worth the same??? NOT!!! With that said, why does everyone think that the price action is all short selling? The price ripped up 50%. There are plenty of people who sold strong and weak hands on that rip. I know I was considering but didn't because I think NG has so much upside that selling a 50% rip wouldn't make sense when it was just the first 50% of a possible far larger move. I've been in for a long time (first couple buys were at 45 and 50/sh) and I am currently dead even at 26/sh!!!! I am feeling good, but to say I didn't consider selling at 30/sh would be a lie. I personally think there are many like me who are trimming their positions and waiting to see where support will prove to be. I don't think there are to many new shorts jumping in at this point. There is too much of a fundamental tailwind going with NG for people to be jumping in on the short side. However....to take profit makes total sense.

    Well, since that post...so far so good. I stand firm with the call. I'm in as much as I am going to be in (avg. at 115) but the point of the post is that if you are in at the current base level, there are fundamental and technical reasons that seem to be pointed higher. You can sell stupid all you want, I'll just sell my shares at 300! GL all, B

    Oh, and as for the company cutting benefits??? Look around, it's happening everywhere. You can thank your President for that. I personally think that those employees are better off with a job and no benefits than without a job and government assistance.....what do you think???

  • b_hesford2000 b_hesford2000 May 25, 2014 12:21 AM Flag

    You may be right on the 8.20/sh...but as for the rest??? You don't have a leg to stand on. FNFG isn't the best financial company in the country. I do however own the stock b/c it is in a sector that is going to have to go higher if the economy is going to actually, really grow. Therefore, I'm in at these levels which relative to book value I feel comfortable. The divy is also nice. I don't get why anyone would want to try and ride this stock lower unless you are just a bitter 'once' long.....in which case, grow up.

    How many more years till $180?

    Well, it was 148/sh 10 days ago.....so based on that move, project forward....about 9 days give or take. But to really answer....who knows? Tuesday? Next month? Next year? Never? I'm long so I think if it takes a year then fine, based on fundamentals....It's not 180/sh I'm wondering about, it's 300/sh I wonder about b/c the CAP will be 100B at some point I think.

    Getting uncomfortable at this fast run-up

    I guess the question I have is why? Why are you trading a spec., growth name that pays a divy the size of this in a space like NG exports which is a foregone conclusion? Why are you putting your gamble money here? Trading is gamble money. This isn't a gamble, hence the generous divy. This is a retirement holding....or at the very least, one of those that you watch mature. I will DRIP and add when opportunities arise. GL all, B

    What is wrong with you? For your sake fred, I hope there is no way your name here can be brought to 'real life'. When it's all said and done, it's money.....it's temporary.....if it's fulfilling? Why?

  • b_hesford2000 by b_hesford2000 May 21, 2014 11:33 PM Flag

    this is going out on a limb....and I've been here for a long time so those of you who are new can look me up I guess. Next time this year, I think the stock price will have touched 300!!! I have multiple reasons both technical and fundamental for this but I see it happening. I'm not saying I'm buying b/c I haven't. If we go to the 140s again, I may now that I have loosened my portfolio up, but till now I wasn't in that position. Of course, now it will never go down again.....that wouldn't be so bad. GL all, B

    the chartist in me is saying this.....of course it is Sunday AM....I expect the stock to trade up to 10.75-11 by Wednesday, so I will sell it on any spike on Tuesday or Wednesday as long as the spike is above 10.75.....I will not be selling my whole position rather about a quarter. Either way, the money from the trade will go back into CLNE as soon as it can be justified. GL all, B

    Uralkali Not Targeted By Latest Economic Sanctions

    sorry, continuing...but it is the conviction of those LONG the stock that must move it. When people realize that the stock is trading 'crazy' low and say 'enough'...like last summer. It changes the direction of the stock. The next trigger that will make the stock move will be when people like Abbaman, you, me, and others are saying, dang, I should've bought or should buy.....then the stock will move UP. Do you want to buy on Monday? I don't. Just being honest.....though it isn't way off my 'interest list' either. Best of Luck all, we have a winner here thanks to divy and sex drive ;) B

    Kieser- I do like what you have expressed as a whole however....I can assure you that more than 50M shares of new long interest are in play over the last year. While the majority don't determine share price on a day-to-day, they do over the long term. the major moves are based on longs.....the sell-off last summer, longs selling and speculators selling. I agree, at some point in the next decade this stock won't double but triple based on population and demand, but stubborn longs will behind that move too.
