I can't believe that this Stock is currently selling at this "FIRE SALE" price.Apparently those boy's on the street don't understand,that as long as we get these Sub zero Winters that are affecting 50% of the US,SE is making profit's that will continue to lift the bottom line.Those environmentalist WACKO'S that predict the melting of the Polar ice,will be freezing their butt's off in the coming year's.Disgree if you must,but I say we are heading back into the Ice age.Only time will tell.PS:Heard Niagara Fall's is froze over.
All of a sudden CYTX is calling a presentation for investors.??????.Either we have a Partnership or we are being bought out.Maybe,just maybe that is why the two director;s were buying the stock in open market..I really have a good feeling about this Dec 4th upcoming event.PLEASE GIVE US GOOD NEWS.
Yea. It's about time.These so-called directors have been sitting on their butt;s for the past 5 yrs doing nothing.This is the first time any of them have bought stock in the open market.
With the Polar Vortex returning,it will be difficult for some area;s of our country to keep warm during these extreme cold times.That is what we do.We build pipelines to these area's to see that they have enough LNG to make it through the winter month's.Some of you constantly are saying,we are nothing but a pipeline building company.WE STORE OIL!!!!.Yes there is a GLUT of oil at this time,and nowhere to store it.That is why the price of a gallon of gas is now down to 2.73 That is why the Camel heads over in the middle east are really worried.They know if the KEYSTONE PIPELINE starts up they will loose $$$.Also,Mr Warren Buffett has done everything in his power to keep the Keystone from starting up.His rail line BNSF will loose 2 billion dollars if Keystone starts up.That's why he threw all those FUNDRAISERS for the Democrat's and helped support the Jackass in the White House.It's all about money .Billion's of dollars are at stake.
HE's steadily maintained 5% dividend has kept the stock overvalued in the face of declining fundamentals as investors chase yield without paying close attention to significant earnings and balance sheet red flags.
HE's current valuation of ~$25/share implies that the company will grow NOPAT by 6% compounded annually for 12 years. Remember, this is a company with less than 1% NOPAT growth in the last 11 years. Official estimates have the state's GDP growing at less than 2% a year going forward, so 6% NOPAT growth seems unrealistic.
Even if HE can fight off competition from solar and grow along with the state, 2% NOPAT growth for the next 15 years only yields a fair value of ~$14/share.
As long as HE can support its 5% dividend, it will likely avoid a significant decline in its stock price, but that dividend could be in trouble before too long. With $2.5 billion in debt, underfund pensions, and deferred tax liabilities, HE can't keep supporting its dividend through swelling debt, deposit liabilities and questionable pension accounting. Meanwhile, the company's already negative free cash flow should decline even further as it has to decide between an expensive investment in renewable energy or a potential hit to its revenues as solar provides an increasing share of Hawaii's energy. Either way, profits and cash flows look to decline significantly

I;m still here.Been waiting since 2009.Just sittin on the sidelines ,waiting for a MIRACLE.
And this is the "Main Reason" I'm standing pat.No sale here.Good company & management.There are very few companies,that make their Qtr's to the upside.Especially in this past 6 yrs of TOTAL #$%$ out of the White house.Stand with me on the sideline.BETTER DAY'S ARE COMING.
SE was up 0.23 percent yesterday to close at $42.66, just off its all-time high of $42.72 reached on July 1. The oil and natural-gas pipeline company reports second-quarter results on the morning of Aug. 6.
Total option volume in Spectra topped 19,000 yesterday, 14 times its daily average for the last month. Only 235 of those contracts were puts, a reflection of the session's bullish sentiment.
Nice "BIG BIDS" and volumn starting to head North fast.When your talking about a 100 + Million deal with Federal Government,that should catch a lot of attention.
Correct me if I'm wrong,but hasn't it been two weeks since the meeting with the Fed officials in reqard to BARDA.Maybe by this Friday???.What could possibly be the holdup.A simple YES or No. answer is all that's required.Oh I forgot,we are dealing with the OBUMMER administration.It may be Month's before we hear anything.
Spectra Energy has been performing very well over the last few months on the back of solid fundamental growth. We believe the capital projects coming online in the short to medium term will further enhance the growth of the company. The growth in revenues and cash flows will continue and the company will be able to further grow its dividends. We believe that Spectra Energy is a solid long-term investment
The Promise of Stem Cell Therapy for Stroke (Part 2)
“In this phase 2 study, we provide the first evidence that intracerebral (within the brain) injection of autologous (self-donated) PBSCs can improve motor function in those who have suffered a stroke and have motor deficits as a result,” said study corresponding author Dr. Woei-Cheng Shyu of the Center for Neuropsychiatry, Graduate Institute of Immunology and Translational Medicine Research Center, China Medical University in Taiwan. “Our study demonstrated that this therapeutic strategy was feasible and safe in stroke patients who suffered a prior stroke, but within five years from the onset of symptoms.” In the 12-month follow up, the 15 patients who received stem cells displayed neurological and functional improvements based on a number of clinical outcome measures, where the control group of 15 patients who did not receive stem cells did not display said improvements.
I refer you to my post of Jan 21st of this year.I said that I truly believe that the PPS of SE would be in the $42.00 to $46.00 range.We are now at $40.00+.This country of ours has a Natural gas shortage,and SE and other related companies are moving to capitalize on this.I state by the end of this year,you will see the PPS in my range.I know some of you say NO WAY,but wall street is listening.They can see the handwriting on the wall,and know that SE is on a climb in that direction.
