Spreads like that across town are common here in Canada, where prices regularly change by 0.10 per liter overnight (that's roughly 0.40 per gallon)
Like I said, I am not a daytrader, but I post many of my stock transactions the day I make them. I noticed that this blutarsky guy challenges everyone on their 'trades' but never posts any stock trades or daytrades he makes.

I think today's move is overblown, probably in reaction to their exposure to the oil industry. That gap fill seemed like a logical target after they warned. I started a small long position in PCP at 190. I will add if it drops to 180 where there should be some decent support. I don;t see a drop to 155 unless the markets continue to pull back and/or oil continues to tumble... not convinced either is going to happen at this juncture. Less

Went long FRO

I am long NAT over a year now, but wanted to expand into a more speculative play. I assume that if FRO and FRO2012 recombine that the new company will continue to trade on the US market in addition to Oslo?
Don't underestimate the power of nature.
@@The cooling influence is particularly marked in the case of large eruptions able to blast sun-blocking particles all the way up to the stratosphere – such as Mount Pinatubo in 1991, which caused a significant dip in global temperatures in the following year or two. It's difficult to know for sure that the cooling observed after a particular eruption is definitely the result of that eruption, but examining the average global temperature change after multiple eruptions proves a strong link.
Oh cmon, the UK has never been a true member of the EU. If they had really wanted in, they would have switched to EUR currency
Funny how tarsands oil still flows across the border, no matter how hard Obama tries to stop the flow. Maybe he's just not trying hard enough huh. If I was the CEO of TRP, I'd sue the #$%$ outt of the US government for this blatant violation of NAFTA. No Canadian water for you, you basturds..
@@Emails: How State Department Secretly Approved Expanding Piece of Enbridge's "Keystone XL Clone"
By Steve Horn • Monday, April 20, 2015 - 03:58 DeSmogBlog has obtained dozens of emails that lend an inside view of how the U.S. State Department secretly handed Enbridge a permit to expand the capacity of its U.S.-Canada border-crossing Alberta Clipper pipeline, which carries tar sands diluted bitumen (“dilbit”) from Alberta to midwest markets. The State Department submitted the emails into the record in the ongoing case filed against the Department by the Sierra Club and other environmental groups in the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota. Collectively, the emails show that upper-level State Department officials hastened the review process on behalf of Enbridge for its proposed Alberta Clipper expansion plan, now rebranded Line 67, and did not inform the public about it until it published its final approval decision in the Federal Register in August 2014. According to a March 17, 2014 memo initially marked “confidential,” Enbridge's legal counsel at Steptoe & Johnson, David Coburn, began regular communications with the State Department on what the environmental groups have dubbed an “illegal scheme” beginning in at least January 2014.

funny is funny... some attempts at humor simply miss the mark. lastly, George Carlin has made more observations about life and has penned more hilarious bits in his sleep than most can come up with these days. he, Pryor, and Hicks have had more influence on comics today than practically anybody...

Huh? What about that saying - ashes to ashes dust to dust. What year did the Christian leadership decide that cremation was 'allowed'? Was it the pope that made the call or did the bishops vote on it? I don't follow developments in religion all that much.
Why do you care what happens to this planet? It's not like anything other than a nuclear war or asteroid collision will change it significantly before you die, and anyway, Earth is just a speck of dust in the universe. Things change for bad an good... get over it.
Well, that's something you don't hear very often
@@@Big Oil is urging Alberta's new government to toughen up the province's environmental policies.To hear an oil industry chieftain advocate for a carbon tax, as Suncor's Steve Williams did in front of a downtown Calgary crowd on Friday, may feel incongruous, but consider who those comments were directed to — the NDP — and the situation takes on a tinge of the surreal. It's the latest sign of how much the political landscape has shifted in Alberta, as well as the global discussion about climate change. "We think climate change is happening," Williams, Suncor's chief executive, told reporters. "We think a broad-based carbon price is the right answer." On its own, an NDP election win would seem to imply that Alberta's environmental policy is about to grow some real teeth. Line that up with a panel discussion — involving an environmental think-tank, voices from Suncor and Cenovus, two of Canada's largest oil companies, and former Tory finance minister Jim Dinning — that was described as a "love in" by the moderator and serious reform in Alberta looks to be a fait accompli
Why do buyout predictions always come out with pie in the sky high valuations? $7B is close to 3X the current market cap. Give me just one example of any buyout that occurred at that kind of multiple.
Sure this is a company with huge potential, so just like many biotechs any offer premium will be high, but it is likely that major shareholders will happily vote to accept an offer of 50-100% over the current price.
I do not consider one year notice of termination particularly onerous, considering that it generally takes months for acquisitions to close. Chemical makers DOW and MRK.DE obviously have very deep pockets and could easily attempt a buyout if they see sufficient profit potential.
I concur. RAI issued an 8-K report back in early April that indicated what the 2014 financial results would be for the merged company. That could give an indication of future performance and where the stock price might head.
Form 8-K for REYNOLDS AMERICAN INC
Regulation FD Disclosure, Financial Statements and Exhibits
Furnished as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated herein by reference are the unaudited pro forma condensed combined financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2014 prepared by RAI. The unaudited pro forma condensed combined balance sheet gives effect to the Merger and the Divestiture as if they had occurred on December 31, 2014, and the unaudited pro forma condensed combined statement of income for the year ended December 31, 2014 gives effect to the Merger and the Divestiture as if they had occurred on January 1, 2014, the beginning of the earliest period presented. The unaudited pro forma financial information for the Merger has been developed from and should be read in conjunction with the RAI audited consolidated financial statements contained in RAI's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014, and the Lorillard audited consolidated financial statements contained in Lorillard's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014. The unaudited pro forma financial information for the Divestiture is derived from the historical accounting records of RAI and Lorillard. The pro forma condensed combined financial statements are preliminary and reflect a number of assumptions, including, among others, that the Proposed Transactions will be consummated. There can be no assurance that any of such transactions will be consummated or that the actual terms of such transactions will not differ materially from RAI's current expectations.
Really? Isn't PPG basically a chemical supplier with a contract from OLED to manufacture the chemicals that OLED sells? If so, I doubt such contracts would be so onerous as to prevent OLED from being bought out.
