alexuca - just how high up are you going. i 'm addin ,too. eD
I'm still around with my 4 figure position that is 16% of my total portfolio. I did sell alot but I needed some diversification regardless of the return and I need income as I'm retired now. I also bought HUN in the two's. Overall, I'm up 400% since March 2009. I just wish my basket was heavier to start with. HUN looks great going forward. It appears they will spin off the pigments business and the TIO2 business. And some of their plastics production can IPO'd or spun off as an MLP. The company does not have to be sold just split up into four or more companies. Burned alot of wood this year in the wilderness. Horrible cold winter. I want to move down near Lind. Ed
All of diamondcutter267's posts have "disappeared" ? Well I'll be....manipulation and the short position... are they the key words?. Ed
Drillers DO ESV HAL MDR NBR NOV PKD RIG SDRL all up across the board.
Little orphan HERO is down. Maybe dem naked boys should be a little concerned with across the board strength of the drillers. The GOM is coming back to life and HERO is well positioned. That truth is going to cost you. Ed
I wonder when the next "good news" will be announced? Need to bludgeon them shorts with good results and keep the pressure on. Ed
Sounds like HERO is taking a page from the SDRL playbook. Wish they might study the page on dividends more. Ed

Someone explain this BS. Ed
WRAITH.KILLER, Perhaps you could share with the board some additional clues on the identity of the billionaire activists and the smaller one that walked through that lobby in the last 3 months. Thank you. Ed
Since the beginning of this year, HERO pps has dropped around 40%. Short interest has more than doubled and daily volume has doubled. Days to cover has gone down 50% to 3 days from 6. Someone is always out there is taking the opposite side of the trade - and taking in a lot of shares.[including DC] The "ante" is getting bigger as the math of shares "trading" verses actual shares issued does not add right - something is going on that is not kosher. Longs verses Shorts. Ultimately, drilling activity in the GOM will determine the outcome is this conflict. The BP disaster has waned. Activity in the GOM is on the upswing and day rates are improving.
Advantage longs. Lot of phantom shares out there. Hard to settle accounts with shares that don't exist. Ed
I think buying under 9 is a gift. I added only 500 more at 9.0282. I have orders to buy under 9 but my cash is running low now that I bought CHK on the drop. I sure would like to see a run back to 9.16 today. I don't want any more stock but I do need some different medication for my trading problem. Dr. Cowley should be my advisor.
Harry, the first thing you must do is not write your messages directly on Yahoo. I would not use Yahoo for writing more than one sentence. Open a document in Microsoft word [you can save it, too] and use "spell-check" to improve your presentation. Those red squiggly lines are errors in punctuation, spacing, spelling and grammar. Fix your message. Then review and edit for content. Copy and paste onto the yahoo message board. You won't be so frustrated trying to craft your messages if you get a little help from "Word". Slow down a bit and relax. There's no hurry and you'll use less meds. Ed
So I'm looking at Level 2 50K on the bid and 44 K ask. In the upside down wolrd of HERO "trading" are the bids orders to buy by longs or shorts covering? On the bid, are those shorts selling[shorting more] or are longs selling?. Some help here. Ed
Good luck Bea! I'm through with ARGENT. I'm afraid I saw this coming but did not think they would slash the divy 80%. Put a big hole in my account but that comes with the territory. Ed
