I have done great with my oil stocks. The more they attack and impede "the evil oil" the more they raise the price and profits...seems counter to what they want. But anyway I extend my thanks.
Both Iran and and Russia will support Malakki....all Barry and Kerry can do at present are to give token lip service to offering help. The end game here being sought..is for the Sunni radicals to gain control and then presumably more moderate Sunni's would form a government and take control. I don't see the US actually taking any measurable action against an insurgency being funded via the Saudi's. This holds true for Syria as well...Russia will continue to support Assad as will Iran...they won't let bordering countries fall to the governance of Sunni's. The present fiasco in Iraq is because both Bush and Obama's policies failed to oust the Baath Party's control after the fall of Saddam and instead of Sunni's getting in power in remained in control of the #$%$s. So Barry is in a predicament of his own policy failure...or rather his own following of the Saudi's policy. I seriously doubt ISIS will take all of Iraq but with the Saudi's support they will consolidate control of a sizable portion. The Kurd's better walk softly...the Sunni's are determined to establish a caliphate and it appears to be getting well entrenched. This all should pretty much guarantee fighting for years to come. Lest one forget when they are wanting to kill each other their focus turns to the infidels and that would be us.
FYI..my understanding is the primary difference between Sunni and #$%$ is that one believes all mullah's have to prove direct blood lineage to the prophet Mohammed while the other doesn't....so it would be like a Baptist having to prove a bloodline lineage to Jesus...and a Catholic not having to. Oh religious wars, what would we do without them...actually we'd be standing shoulder to shoulder in human beings as we are our only population control. There's always an upside to everything...as long as you are a casual observer. JMHO
the insurgents in Bosnia, in Libya, In Syria, in Iraq, in Afghanistan, as does Qatar. All US involvement in the middle-east has sided with the Sunni's period. Barrack Obama was raised in the Sunni religion, his father was a Sunni, his half brother Malik is a Sunni and has worked for the Muslim Brotherhood. If you doubt Barry was influenced...try and google his college trip to Pakistan. He inadvertently mentioned the trip once in an interview and has never discussed it again...however some good reporters did investigate same. Barry commented on his thorough knowledge of Sunni religion and Sharia law. The obvious may be that it is just purely about oil..as the largest producers are all Sunni's...but whether it's been Reagan, the Bush's, the Clinton's and now the Obama's....the support has been to the Sunni's. It is ironic however that Osama Bin Laden was both a Sunni and a Saudi...the 19 terrorists who perpetrated 9/11 were Sunni Saudi nationals.
In my opinion the whole mess stinks...it wreaks of the Sunni's playing puppet master of our political leaders.
Both sides of the middle-east are comprised of radicals who when not hating each other..hate infidels. Instead we ignore getting oil from Canada, a very peaceful ally on the guise of environmental concerns and rather opt to continue having oil transported by tankers across the worlds oceans...kind of silly isn't it ? Personally my view is the two Muslim factions are akin to wasps and hornets...either will sting you eventually so just let them fight each other..but I imagine there is some underlying "social engineering goal" being pursued. Such a waste of 19 year old Americans regardless...and that credit can be equally extended to both parties as both parties have marched to the Sunni's drum. This malady is going to continue as it has now for 30 or 40 years from the Shah of Iran forward. Hopefully the carnage stays over there...but is that really a practical expectation ? No. JMHO
by Shelia Baird after meeting with him at the Whitehouse. Malik is directly tied to the Muslim Brotherhood, and the largest contributor to the Barrack H. Obama fund is guess who..the Saudi's. Gee Hillary looks stunning wearing her $500,000 jeweled necklace given to her by the Saudi King. But never mind the little details, it's not about self interest....these people have your interest at heart....LOL..LOL
After 5 years in office...it's an admission of personal failure...to still blame your predecessor for current problems. Apparently someone isn't up to the task of " the buck stops here"....their motto has always been put us in charge so we can "pass the buck". Authority with no responsibility.
self serving unethical persons ? Now who are the vast majority of politicians ? Any lawyer who is successful will readily admit that in court he/she does not have to tell the truth or present the truth...they aren't under oath. Their world is all about winning...period. You wonder why there are so many complicated laws and regulations ? The fraternity of lawyers running the country has created an endless need for it's existence. As long as the country keeps voting in lawyers...it's going to remain the same....regardless of which party is in control.
In addition to the uncertainty about Iraqi supply, there are other pressures on crude prices. China has been purchasing oil for its strategic reserves, even though prices are high. The China is squabbling with Japan and Vietnam over territory, and the country wants to build up its reserves to 100 days of net imports by 2020.
The first phase of China's strategic build-up amounted to 103 million barrels and was completed in 2009. The second phase was supposed to add 169 million barrels to the reserve but since has been raised to 245 million barrels. The second phase is expected to be completed by 2015. The country is now building storage tanks for the third phase to hold an additional 152 million barrels.
( so it looks like we are seeing a little strategic hoarding taking place globally)...just adds to provide underlying support to oil prices...245 /7.5 mmbopd equivalent of total US production or 32 days worth of total US production. Do they get it from us...no we can't export crude..but it doesn't matter where they get it...it's still adds up to being demand on global production.) By the way the article notes the US has 750 mmbbls in our strategic petroleum reserve. GLTA
dogeater..must be really in the red.....when they try and dominate the board.........they have bet wrong in a major way. Oh I'll bet dogeater just wants to help out folks...wrong. Just another short losing money and too dumb to cover. Dear dog..if you'd had any sense you would have covered and gone long...you'd be making money right now. Enjoy your upcoming week...I'm certainly going to! JMHO GLTA
would care about whether you were making a bad buy ? No they are trembling and trying their best to slow the upturn. If they sincerely believed the stock was over priced and would tank they would shut up and let it run and short the heck out of it....When I want to buy into a stock I want the price to get cheaper, I want as low a cost basis as I can get. So take comfort when you own a stock that gets under bashing attack...it means the other side is showing their fear......believe me....they concern is over their own $$$$$...not yours. My portfolio is greener and I expect that trend to continue....and it appears they are in dire straits...not me. JMHO GLTA
sense not to attempt to instill western ideas both political or religious where they aren't wanted. You'd have greater success getting Eskimo's to eat veggies and wear bikinis...it shouldn't be so difficult to figure out.
Everything is still very positive for WPRT. Financially they are heading towards profitability, they are a global company, they have a multitude of deals with major EOMs, countless major companies have began transitioning to natgas fuel. The one indisputable fact that is always mentioned in regard to who the front runner is in natgas engine technology is WESTPORT...even the naysayers note same. This company isn't folding....it's now less about market building ( costly ) and more about filling market needs. The upside is any movement in a real energy program would just enhance WPRT's outlook. At present the global outlook on oil prices and our landlocked abundance of natgas favors WPRT. Maybe 3 or 4 years down the road if and when natgas exports become a reality the spread may narrow...but lest one forget WPRT is doing business all over the globe where natgas prices are 4 times US domestic cost....so where's the downside ? I maintain WPRT is a stock to accumulate and hold as it will either dominate as the leader in the sector or it will be acquired. Nobody disputes it's patent portfolio and it it the absolute front runner in the sector. JMHO GLTA
I don't even know what an air card is...The Viasat is supposed to be $59 a month with 12 gb so I'll probably give it a shot. I appreciate the offer and your response. As you can tell tech savvy I ain't. GTLY
First off...3 ( cost of transaction )divided by 50 ( total value) =6%....that's not an expensive cost of raising money. Your whole thesis just doesn't jibe with reality. I would debate that increasing production doesn't correlate to pps...in a properly operated company with a good balance sheet and good margins it most certainly does....and I believe the current chart for the last year pretty much backs up the thesis that better results equates to higher pps. We do agree on one point...PPS will continue going up. JMHO GLTA
is my only option ...I figure either Dish or Viasat..the latter is supposedly ranked #1 as far as speed. I already know from Dish service I lose it in stormy weather...but other than that does anyone have any pros/con comments regarding their service ? I can't imagine anything can be worse than what I presently have. Thanks in advance for any serious feedback.
LOL..correction..higher lows...highers lows....god forbid..lower lows.
Yep we were doing very good on lower lows and higher highs...still doing the lower lows...would be very bullish to see that $5.80 taken out....and I have a sneaking hunch via todays closing strength that we may just get to witness that event sooner rather than later. JMHO GLTA
instinct and acted on it....wow.
Yeah,, I was fixing to say temper the enthusiasm...The next update should provide a significant view of the production increases...I don't look for earnings to be spectacular in Q2 as some big wells were off. I think earnings will be OK ...but the real pay-off should come home to roost in 3rd qtr and now even beyond with the acceleration of drilling. I did have a target of selling after 3rd quarter...but post current events...this is probably gonna be held longer than anticipated...when the golden goose stops laying, you sell them...but when they keep dropping more and more eggs...you hold the goose. This is looking like a goose to be held. JMHO GLTA
and sell the shares immediately at a profit....per the SEC document just filed (Neither the Company nor any Subsidiary has taken, directly or indirectly, any action designed to or that would be reasonably expected to cause or result in stabilization or manipulation of the price of the Common Stock or any other “reference security” (as defined in Rule 100 of Regulation M under the Exchange Act (“Regulation M”)) whether to facilitate the sale or resale of the Offered Shares or otherwise, and has taken no action which would directly or indirectly violate Regulation M. The Company acknowledges that the Underwriters may engage in passive market making transactions in the Common Stock on NASDAQ in accordance with Regulation M.)
As you can see...there are rules that govern the world...Just an FYI to dispel some of the non-facts being rumored. JMHO GLTA
