    what a fall,, however this is when you buy, they worked it out. It was not CBI at fault but Shaw and Shaw owes US. Now is when you can accumulate if you have no confidence in CBI then sell your shares and move on. The true value of this company will return. ...happens.

  • ATLANTA (AP) -- A manufacturer making parts for two nuclear plants in the Southeast has promised to better train its employees after investigators accused three workers of cheating on a qualification test four years ago.

    Chicago Bridge & Iron Co. agreed in a settlement with the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission to strengthen its warnings against misconduct for workers at its Lake Charles, Louisiana, plant. It must also watch for misconduct as part of existing oversight programs.

    CBI's factory in Louisiana makes parts for nuclear plants under construction in Georgia and South Carolina. The firms building and designing those plants are shifting production work away from CBI's Lake Charles facility because utility executives and analysts said it struggled to meet NRC quality rules and produce key components on time. NRC officials said the cheating did not cause any defective parts to leave the factory.

    CBI spokeswoman Gentry Brann did not return messages seeking comment Tuesday and Wednesday.

    The agreement was struck last week during negotiations between CBI and federal regulators.

    "The NRC pursued the mediation process with Chicago Bridge & Iron because we were able to get commitments for a broader range of corrective actions from the company in addressing the underlying issues," Patricia Holahan, acting director of NRC's Office of Enforcement, said in a statement.

    Federal officials have accused three factory employees of cheating on a welding test in April 2010, according to NRC documents summarizing the probe. Investigators accuse one welder of cheating by taking a qualification test for a co-worker. A test administrator allowed the test even though authorities said the administrator was aware of the misconduct. The names of the workers have not been released.

    Those workers could still face additional penalties, even prosecution.

    At the time, the Lake Charles plant was owned by The Shaw Group. CBI acquired Shaw in February 2013.

    Shame on Shaw and CBI!

    Taking a look back 2 years ago you could have bought at just under $10 and it closed today $16.55 plus its divvy was increased too. I like CEO Manuel Henriquez and his team, their vision is sound and I think that they have managed a really tight operation since 2003. In 2012, divvy was 23 cents per share per qtr. Now its .31 cents per share per qtr...I appreciate that! GLTAL.

    The plunge is what the market does best...oversold is what we may call it...can it go down more? It might, for right now it seems that the shortz are taking down daily even though every day there is a new contract announcement...stinks. Still long, because this multi-billion profitable company should be valued over $90 JMHO.

    Distribution business is not so low margin and the sales to NOV alone will be huge and then you add the other energy E and P and Pipelines and Shippers and you have the birth of a mega star in the making. Understanding that they lost time in the initial re-organization and computerization is nothing new in the world of spin-offs. Future for NOW, inc is bright, the opportunity is there and believe that getting the organization in position is in process. GLTAL.

    Name calling people you don't know is super dumb... shame on you. CBI by paying a real dividend puts the focus back where it belongs. Record earnings should be followed by a dividend increase, Rewarding investors is a positive and confidence building factor by which investment houses such as pension funds make long term investments. They can afford to do it and they should.

  • That should reward those of us who have invested in this company and kick Prescience Point Research and their minions right where they deserve to kicked.

    I want to agree with you, but look at what's has been shorted to 60 and there still is downward pressure and I bought more at 64 it just seems like a bargain for a company that is seriously profitable, has a huge backlog of 31 billion and is a dominant force in the energy and petrochemical industry and its being cannibalized as if it declared bankruptcy or lost huge sums of money... it would be great if they announced a special dividend payment like $4 per share...that screw some shorts!

    Sentiment: Buy

  • Can anyone supply such information and post it on this board...for those of us who have lost significant investment value?
