    this deal is unhinged --- Steve Jobs is now looking down with a frown and Cook the Clown. This is the beginning of the end. Boolean

  • I will short this now -- this shows that Apple is now gone MAD -- this deal makes Apple a SELL. Boolean

    BUY point I have been speaking of and waiting for .........again today close but no cigar so......I WILL BE PAY-TIENT AS PAY-TIENCE PAYS. And it has been right on as the price keeps dipping while the BUY signal stays neutral. I have built my cash position and ready to go in blazing when the buy signal hits.......I will say when I buy the day I do it.......that is what I always do as I have full confidence in my calls. Look at Earthstone energy before its run and now.......and us energy when i said no way and it fell when all the hypers were screaming BUY BUY BUY........Be careful my friends. Boolean

    true - that is what I just said - nothing new there. Ray has to vote his shares FOR and now he will be locked in at least until September or so and RAY WOULD NOT DO A DUMB DEAL AND RIP OFF HIMSELF.....that is just foolish thinking. Give the guy some credit already. People fear he is ripping off shareholders....TO THE CONTRARY HE IS ENRICHING THEM AND HIM..........he is one of us OK. The deal is done - you can vote no and you are happy but it changes nothing. This deal is going to be GOOD FOR SHAREHOLDERS. My line of thought is going to be correct .........as always the simplest line is usually the right one. I have a hard time following you guys sometimes. Boolean

    in a solid UP MOVE........you see the pattern is extending longer than usual so I fully expect the UP MOVE to be EXPLOSIVE and based on news of infrastructure and world economic growth. Naysayers will be wrong. Boolean

    Management needs TO BUY SHARES

    mountain - read the annual report - what is management saying about the company and what they are doing to build value into it -- if they are wanting us to continue to hold our stock why should they not BUY IT since it is so beaten down. Put some of THEIR money on the table. As for Obama - I have not said I support him though as President I do as an American........the country is coming out of the disaster of the Bush/Cheney debacle so that is good no matter who is doing it (more likely the American people and not our politicians).

    there a lot of investors here scared that Ray made a bad deal - too many uncertainties they say. I say......hogwash. Ray is one of us. I mean - he is locked into his shares since part of the deal with Oak was that he would vote ALL of his shares for the exchange and he is not able to sell until after the deal closes..........that means sometime perhaps in September 2014 or more. The call delineates this. So -- thinking that Ray is going to cut his own investment throat is a bit too fear mongering if I don't say so myself. But if you can not be happy until you micro-analyze it to death (all the while knowing that you can not get the information you so desire) then enjoy. For me --- I sit back and stand with Ray. Boolean

  • and we will likely see some of the turn as 2014 unfolds........I still don't see the perfect buy signal I am waiting for and in fact it jumped a bit higher off of it today so I will wait b-4 pulling the proverbial trigger. This stock is going to base here and then begin its recovery. All of the naysayers can have fun - they won't shake me - only facts will shake me and for that I will keep watching and assessing the status of Cliffs and the industry. That said, this stock will likely be one of the top performers in 2015 and I plan to........Be There. Boolean

    kem - a little civility please -- he was not mean in his response just wrong. Boolean

  • booleansearcher booleansearcher May 27, 2014 7:18 AM Flag

    sure they have been cutting capacity since 2011 since that was the top of the demand cycle...........you must cut capacity to save money and to slow the slide but alas the slide simply picked up steam and we dropped precipitously. If they an survive the stock will do very well as the next commodity run will occur on the back of the infrastructure build and economic growth around the world. Cliffs simply has to try to hold on until that growth takes hold.........can they do it is the question right now in investors minds. Boolean

  • booleansearcher booleansearcher May 26, 2014 10:16 PM Flag

    The demand and surplus are all part of the pricing of course........I don't get you point when the point was made with prior knowledge taking into account by those who post here.......iron ore is down below one hundred now I do believe so it is tough..........analysts believe the rest of the year gets worse so that makes me bullish. Smaller players will not be able to stay in business with the low prices so that too will help. But all and all I want to see some real GROWTH soon to make me feel better and I think it is coming soon....... like June-July. Boolean

    It does when you are smart enough to look at how many they are SELLING. come on don't you understand how this works.

  • and you see on Friday all eight of the top ten (two not indicated) were UP as were many others in that sector......China's steel imports is up this quarter vs last year and you have growth in many other countries not to exclude Vietnam. Now Cliffs may not be solid but we the potential is there for it to be a top winner in 2014 IF steel can keep rising from here.........it was like 187 a ton in 2011 when all was pretty and now it is way off BUT it is off the bottom and again all you need is a little more infrastructure and China to show more growth and WHAM.........new deal and Cliffs is the darling again. Will be fun to watch TRACK STEEL PRICES KIDS. Boolean

    COULD THE CHINESE BUY CLIFFS

    Exactly my point - once the Chinese showed interest there would be a bidding war and I too noted companies like BHP. This stock is looking ugly but that is what is so beautiful about it -- the risk I believe is over done and a pile on of negativism has hit this stock/company BUT once the psychology changes........and it will.........the stock will lose the cloak of disaster and once again be seen as a gem in the rough. I would like to see infrastructure discussion heat up sooner than later however so we can be sure I am right on this........I believe I am. Boolean

    real - no harm intended - I just offered a view in terms of selling when one feels the level of uncertainty suggested. I believe Ray has already shown us the money and I think this deal is going to push our little company into a whole near category in terms of growth in drilling, percentage of ownership (yes more risk more reward), reserves, stock activity and recommendations as well as institutional interest. Until the transition is fully accounted for we should also see rising earnings from Earthstone which will propel us higher as well. Once the deal is done there still will not be a whole of shares available compared to the universe of stocks that trade -- we will still be leveraged nicely in that regard and was something I always liked. Though stock split are not used like they once were I can also see that occurring allowing shareholders to further benefit (yes I understand that it does not change the value you have until it rises) from the solid growth I see for this combined company. We shall see. I will be here will you?? It sounds like you will. Good luck. Boolean

  • dumping shares - gee options again.........do they buy on the open market NO yet they spew crappola about all the great things management is doing for shareholders........what are we sharing????? They have under performed for a long time and only have benefitted from gifts from government the same government that most of you spurn as BIG GOVERNMENT and hand outs to the poor. What kind of handouts to do you call these options for doing WHAT????? Come on explain to me what they have done. If a school teacher would get that you would go ballistic and scream tea party crappola from people in trailer courts who have nothing but stand for those who do -- total lunacy but it is what it is.

    For you there are unknowns to ponder and to worry about and for me there is the strong, firm and unbending belief in Ray as our friend and co-owner. He is one of us in my belief while the rest of you remain suspect and untrusting. So be it. For you I would recommend selling as that is no way to invest - since you don't believe in the manager how then can you believe in the stock. For me - I am looking for 32-35 a share in the next move and then rising from there in what I see is a solid growth story that will ride the recovery of the USA. Boolean
