    UNDER THE RADAR - it is still BELOW ITS TRUE a lot. This will not continue and we will see that jump to 25-26 soon. I still firmly believe that we will be in the 30's as we roll through the year and the next Q will continue our positive performance and I fully expect Ray to ramp up the press releases. I have not called him yet but I know he looks at these pages -- how can you not. I continue to recommend that he do a STOCK DIVIDEND to shareholders and I would recommend that it be restricted to those shareholders WHO ARE NOT PART OF MANAGEMENT. I believe that would be a further showing of the totally shareholder centric nature of this team. There was good news on another of my micro plays -ntn buzztime. Buffalo Wild Wings is really rolling it out as I had bet and this could be massive for THE BUZZ. Back to Earthstone - it is a super buy and its cheap valuation will become even more valuable as the market expands. My suggestion - Be There. Boolean

    watch and keep focus on the reality and the hype - this is a perfect company for hucksters to pump and they will BUT it is also a company with a potential game changing technology -- THEY ARE FOR REAL. So - the stock will be pushed higher by both the solid reality and the hypsters -- But I have been very long as I have noted and when I was the only one here. This will be huge as Buffalo has chosen to embrace it due to the great response to its trial run. This is HUGE and 2014 will be HUGE for this company. Be There. Boolean

  • to bring in the earnings it will fall back - too many solid oils like Earthstone to waste time on pipe dream companies whose management can't bring it home -- SHOW ME THE MONEY KIDS and stop all your hype about BUDA -- without bottom line results you are toast. Earthstone hitting more wells now with excellent partners and manager in Ray Singleton. Boolean

    Don't get too excited - you kids jus need to check the map to see what is going on.

    but of course rocketing oil prices helped but still..........congratulations. If there were a lot weak hands this day could have shook enough shares loose to drop it back 25-30 cents didn't. BUT now you must see if it can hold tomorrow and attack those upper levels. The market is strong and this drop was just a day when stocks went on sale........Sir John Templeton always new that. So - good job today folks. Now SHOW ME THE MONEY and I too will ride along. Boolean

    Hey - stocks are on sale today. Right he is -- the market will rise much higher. Also begin looking as I noted recently at the emerging market arena -- investors are pulling the plug big time giving those with PAY-tience the opportunity to do very well as this group catches the wind of the major economies as we move through 2014. The USA will continue to be the engine of growth and the fact that so many companies are bringing their manufacturing back to the USA is........a very beautiful thing and well deserved and best of all - A GREAT BUSINESS DECISION FOR THE USA.

    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.

  • booleansearcher by booleansearcher Mar 2, 2014 6:16 PM Flag

    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...........

    Earthstone vs US Energy

    by booleansearcher Mar 1, 2014 9:22 PM
    booleansearcher booleansearcher Mar 2, 2014 9:25 AM Flag

    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

  • booleansearcher by booleansearcher Mar 1, 2014 9:22 PM Flag

    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

  • booleansearcher by booleansearcher Feb 28, 2014 7:55 PM Flag

    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

  • booleansearcher by booleansearcher Feb 27, 2014 9:26 PM Flag

    very exciting 4 the market and therefore for Earthstone. Inflow to lower tier oil/gas is on so we are in good shape.

  • booleansearcher by booleansearcher Feb 27, 2014 9:04 PM Flag

    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

  • booleansearcher by booleansearcher Feb 26, 2014 8:55 PM Flag

    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
