HOW MUCH IS GOING TO THE BOTTOM LINE --- that is the......BOTTOM LINE Richard. The Texas railroad commission - tell me about the money at the bottom line in this Q release. Boolean
due out Wednesday. But USEG will still have to PROVE ITSELF on its earnings release but lower oil status may support the stock until then. Maybe. Earthstone is the better buy with a significantly better risk/reward ratio in my most humble opinion. Boolean
managements efficiency is rated as a NEGATIVE as to date they have not done well NOW - this may be at a point of inflection where this changes BUT we must wait for the next release and again.........SHOW ME THE MONEY FIRST and then I will invest. Earthstone already made it and will be stellar performer as we move through 2014 while USEG is still, in my humble opinion - a pipe dream albeit with some hope if all the stars align. Boolean
most boards - congratulations you get to go on the red carpet. Small investors beware and do strong DD and don't get sucked in by stocks that run up based on illusion and collusion and pumpers. It may work out but beware. Boolean
Earthstone is much farther ahead - Ray Singleton has taken Earthstone much farther in five years........just look at the numbers.
it is ME. But you kids sure get testy when someone asks a few questions and you totally dismissed my point that WE BOTH MAY BE RIGHT and BOTH stocks may rise. But you have to ask yourself as you look back over the past five years - AT POINT IS THIS STOCK NOW -- is it just before its rise to the 7 area or is it as the point were it drops back -- I say it will trend back down now to the mid 3 area pending this Q results. And this molyb business they have - what is that doing? Good 2 c they get rid of the real estate business and are focusing on what they should be focusing on. I am not short - I just popped over here as asked to do. I just don't see it as a viable investment RIGHT NOW........I want to SEE THE MONEY. They have not proven to be the best managers as yet so I have to see them bring it home. So -- let's see where Earthstone ends up on March 31 2014 and where USEG ends up - PERCENTAGE WISE. Now I am giving you a deal there but I feel confident that I will win.........going away. Now you have your learned geologist certified in some four states or whatever and I am but a lowly booleansearcher but ........the game is on. Boolean
oilly2bed oilly2rise but not necessarily for a stock - I am not impressed by any of your points.......none. As for being a reg geo that is whatever - that does not make you a super investor in the oil field game my friend. sorry. What I want to see from this company is THE MONEY - SHOW ME THE MONEY. Right now they are running a negative PE and missed estimates last Q. Their price to sales is poor. There is hope it all turns around and IT COULD but I want to wait to SEE THE MONEY. You have pipe dreams and maybe the dreams become reality BUT I WANT TO SEE THE MONEY. They have drives some good cash flow so all is not bad and this could be the turn BUT SHOW ME THE MONEY. Many of the so called investors that poured into this mo-mo stock can just as easily RUN FOR HILLS if earnings disappoint AGAIN. So don't be so cocky......realize your limitations and gauge them against your expectations and think b-4 U denounce. Like I said in my first posting - this could be a good play but right now I see it as OVER-VALUED. Earthstone has much better potential so as a geologist you need to........DIG A LITTLE DEEPER. Boolean
Momentum has driven this stock higher and to me it is overpriced and hyped. You see its financial returns dismal to date and it still runs a LOSS. You see shareholder equity has DROPPED.......never a good sign. You see pumpers on this board pretending to know what they are talking about ...........never a good sign. It is my suspicion and expectation that the stock will either fall back now to say 3.45-3.63 or drop hard on the earnings release. You can evade reality but you can not evade the consequences of evading reality/ayn rand. You want some real value - earthstone - supreme industries - ricks cabaret and even my casino play of ntn buzztime who has a great arrangement with buffalo wild wings............waiting to hear on that has worked out in terms of acceptance/use in the stores........... Boolean
OVERBOUGHT???? Listen tigerwoods - I think you ex hit you too hard with that golf club. Earthstone is clearly not overbought and watch as March unfolds how it makes its next move UP. They have all the pegs in the right holes at this time and top/bottom line growth are solid and rising. But you may have your opinion and I may have mine -- we shall see. It is thinly traded due to the low share count BUT that is also what makes it so positive for me. Boolean
I have come over from the Earthstone board as a new poster there requested I check into US Energy. For me Earthstone is far and away the better play BUT.......I had invested before in Contango and did very well with them and they are a good company SO that is an excellent partner to have. The US economy is going to show solid growth as we move through 2014 SO oil/gas stocks will do very well. I will watch to see how US Energy does and may come on board at a later time but right here I feel the risk/reward is just not tilted to my benefit..........YET while Earthstone is clearly a true value and all of their numbers substantiate that. Now that said, I hope we both win but I just feel at this time Earthstone has the best odds and is a true buy at these levels. Good luck folks. Boolean
not to worry -- March is uh coming.........even my taser took a dip today after being the or one of the best stocks to date ---- gotta give some back you know b-4 you run.....get tired.......take a break then RUN AGAIN like Mercadolibre up some 9+points today. People selling Earthstone are quck-buckers - take it and run and move on. But after this little drop you are left with the strong intelligent long-term hands and then the bullet-proof bottom is in place and the stock has to rise as that is the path of least resistance. In March.....we will March onward. Should be interesting. Be There. Git er dun Ray and think about that 5-10% stock dividend. Boolean
NOW - you saw Taser run today -- glad I held it into earnings and yesterday mercadolibre up strong and now earnings just came out and they too BEAT........up 9-10 after hours. Earthstone making a short term base b-4 they run up to 24-26 and we will see the 30's. Overall market status still positive. Did buy Luby's/lub on a turn around buy ---- we shall see. good luck and stick with me -- we are in really good shape. Boolean
we will move into the 24-25 range is my guess as we move thru March as that is where we should be as we await more news --- so we may tread here for a short while and then move to those levels. I see us hit the 30's as we move through the year and we could go much higher depending on what happens in the fields that we as yet can not gauge. Mr. Market is doing just fine and I still see infrastructure build out being a huge driver as we move into summer - that means stocks like my caterpillar and Manitowoc will continue to do well AND a real sleeper that I have been buying into is cliffs natural resources. You can also watch mesabi for indicators. Another fun one to watch is mercadolibre that has fallen to low 90's (maybe lower or higher today I don't know yet) - it has been hammered but always goes thru gyrations and with Brazil slapped around it is no wonder but alas that too shall end.
But you kids can do what bobby boy did and sell our stock and buy some acreage to run your dog on or to tell others from why Earthstone is such a terrible investment -- whatever your interest or need. For me - I will stay fully invested in Earthstone and in Ray and plan to see much higher prices and for it to be SOLD to another company perhaps by September-October. Boolean
I am betting big on a huge infrastructure build and Obama has now been really indicating that this will happen -- what better to drive the economy and get people back to work. SO CLIFFS is going to have a huge run and it could well eclipse old highs. Just watch - this is where the market takes out the last weak hands and then bases and begins its huge move. Look at my call on earthstone energy (and that too remain a good buy) and others. Also start buying a small amount - say 20% of your target investment into slaughtered countries like Brazil. Use ETF's. Cliffs and others like Caterpillar (yes I own it) will rise sharply. March Madness will be on - watch it go. Boolean
Consider a STOCK DIVIDEND - at least 5%. Much better than a cash dividend as you don't suck money out of the company - shareholders can use it as a one time cash dividend and sell their shares - can be a one time event and on and on............just a thought but..........you duh man Ray-Man. Boolean
*anxious to see how taser does this morning -- I am up huge but decided to hold the shares on through this release coming b-4 market open........gamble but let's see. Also keep watching ntn buzztime - mini stock with a potential game changer with their new platform and deal with Buffalo Wild Wings. Waiting for news from them to see how/if their acceptance has been.
So - the pop is on. Volume exploded. We hit the screens. The eyes are upon us. No need for a PR person.......as I said.......don't need it these days. SO NOW WHAT? Well, some will say this is just a false pop.....will be short lived. WRONG. Yes we may consolidate some of this but it will not signal the end - the plateau - but rather signal a step where though we may rest we will not rest for long. We will move.....UPWARD and we still could go PARABOLIC though it would be my wish that we follow I more normalized rise. That said, the low float suggests to me that parabolic is of high potential simply due to the FACT that this company - the company that RAY HAS BUILT has massive potential and right now is only in its most nascent stage. With the US economic recovery improving and the world looking to follow we will see more money flow into the energy area as well as overall commodities as the year moves forward. We will not have many willing sellers as I suspect what we have here are very smart investors - not speculators. So potential buyers are going to have to pull hard to get any shares and certainly from me they will have no opportunity as my shares...........are..........MINE and what I see ahead is very positive. We are as I said we would be - now a real growth company. There will be a time to sell but it ain't now as we are only at the beginning. As before my recommendation was and is.......BE THERE. Boolean
*don't fear any selling here - just sit back and keep your finger off the sell trigger. we will go much higher.*
market is now at this level to GDP -- another sign of the end stage of the market --- once you get over 100 it is a sign to watch BUT the level of fear in the market is too high across the board even though margin numbers have risen to the highest level I believe ever. I hold with those like the learned Laszlo Birinyi who is still looking for higher markets but it is another symbol of the last wave - but again it could last for a year or more.
We see too many people writing of the apocalypse now - omens and such of imminent market disaster that it will not happen YET. Stay tuned and stay invested and I will let you know when my legs are trembling and my stomach is churning. Right now - we are looking for Earthstone to attack its top end resistance and once above it there are no restraints. The USA is leading the WORLD out of the economic disaster and that is awesome. It is funny though to watch the republicans (I am independent) having to deal with the new pope who is mostly if not all the way anti-capitalism looking for some improved equality for the poor and middle class - they religious right now has to deal with this conundrum. Ah those humans can make so much of so little. Boolean
shorts have been reducing and when you go back over the past few years you see we are at the low end -- this too is BULLISH. The naysayers were/are WRONG. We are on the right side of this trade and that will come fully to light in "short" order.
We do see Mr. Market showing signs of age and we are in the last phase of this might mighty bull. We see the S&P price to sales at about 1.6 so this is above its range on a historical basis. We do see the PE also running higher. We see the small investor pouring money in though last month they became scared again and dumped historical highs into bonds -- WHAT??? We see IPO's picking up and this spring should bring a deluge. We see those like etrade and ameritrade showing rising single day trades - day traders are BACK and mo-mo players are BACK. But this BULL ain't dead yet and it will go on and Earthstone is going to be hitting its pace right at the best time as we should only see better news (if that is possible and it is) coming out of this little giant. And then we should see Ray sell it off and we all go home..........but not until the stock has really run and the fervor boils in the market place. Ray has us sitting pretty and we are getting prettier as the days pass - no botox needed. Good luck - I know you are bullish as I am and you know what --- I do believe we are right and have played the best hand here. Good luck. Boolean
