Mass can be determined independently of weight. To determine the mass of an object, you simply count the total number of neutrons and protons contained in the object.
Agree. debt restructuring will lead to dilution and push out debt maturities and this is viewed as favorable to shareholders vs a Ch11 filing. Until coal prices actually move up, however, miners will not see an improvement in profitability. I will only buy coal miners if/when prices reverse trend.
forecasts are meaningless. look at actual coal futures contract prices... i see no sustained reversal in trend
will sanctions continue even if there is a change in federal government? what is the ndp and liberal party stance on them?
They may have bottomed, but there is no clear evidence of a price trend up either. So far there have been only very minor cutbacks to production. Instead, miners like PCX WLT, ANR etc. are going BK then continue on operating most of the mines with lowered debt costs, which reduces the likelihood of a strong recovery.
The two coal sub-sectors, coking and thermal, face different headwinds. I think the outlook on coking coal (used in steel production) is more promising than thermal coal. I've been watching SXCP lately for a possible entry point...not strictly a coal miner, but rather a coal refiner selling into the downtrodden USA steel sector.
Yeah they must be really scared of Afrezza
@RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Danish drug maker Novo Nordisk said Wednesday it will open new factories in North Carolina and Denmark as pharmaceutical companies seek to keep up with demand for diabetes medications in an increasingly overweight world. Novo Nordisk plans to invest about $2 billion over the next five years in new production facilities in the Raleigh suburb of Clayton and near Copenhagen, Denmark. The company plans to create close to 700 new production and engineering jobs in Clayton, where Novo Nordisk now employs more than 700 people at a factory producing insulin products.
Sold a fourth of my RAI holdings today.That evil-looking candle from Monday gives me the creeps. I was getting a bit over-weighted the sector anyway with the strong run-up in RAI and the buys I made on BTI after the RAI-LO merger. I've often seen stocks droop after a split, and if RAI droops back down to the low on that crazy looking candle, I'll be buying.
So does this mean RAI will have to re-name "Natural American Spirit" smokes? How about "True American Spirit", or maybe "American Indian Spirit"?
Chances are retail shareholders like us will know only after the sell-side analysts get the scoop first and issue their take on what VMW management presented to them.
@Software maker VMware (VMW), the subject of intense scrutiny Wednesday about a possible merger, or reverse merger, will host its annual meeting with the sell side next Monday, August 31st, during its five-day conference, VMworld, going on in San Francisco. (More on VMworld here.) Walter Pritchard, who follows the company for Citigroup, and who has a Buy rating on the stock, Wednesday afternoon wrote that the speculation about M&A is likely is to hover over the event next week.
Apparently consumers are too stupid to understand tobacco naturally kills
@ The Food and Drug Administration on Thursday sent warning letters targeting the owners of top-10 cigarettes brands Winston and Natural American Spirit for violating federal law by marketing the brands as "additive-free" or "natural." "The FDA's job is to ensure tobacco products are not marketed in a way that leads consumers to believe cigarettes with descriptors like 'additive-free' and 'natural' pose fewer health risks than other cigarettes, unless the claims have been scientifically supported," said Mitch Zeller, director of the FDA's Center for Tobacco Products, in a statement. Reynolds and Imperial didn't immediately respond to request for comment. Nat Sherman declined to comment. The FDA said that cigarette brands have to apply to become a "modified risk tobacco product" to be able to label or advertise as additive-free or natural. The agency hasn't approved any cigarettes as modified risk products since it gained oversight of the tobacco industry in 2009. The tobacco companies have 15 days to respond to the FDA and explain their plans regarding the labels. The FDA said failure to do so could result in further actions including monetary penalties, criminal prosecution or seizure.
Options are highly overpriced when volatility is high. If anything, it is the time to sell options, not buy them.
