    I don't want to be so negative.

    Reminds me of an old Sports Illustrated article about the timers at Olympic events (back before computer timing): "These are the souls that time men's tries"

    I guess I should know this, but I don't.

    When we see prices per ton, is that 2200lbs/ton or 2000lbs/ton? In this case, that's the difference between Cu at 3.40/lb or 3.09/lb.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

  • Hi everyone-
    Rainy day here in northern California, so I doodled around on Google Maps.

    If you're so inclined, the Thompson Creek Mine is at 44.316423, -114.551969. (You can also get there by looking for Thompson Creek Rd, Clayton, ID).

    You can put in Mt. Milligan Mine, Bulkley-Nechako C, BC, Canada, but it doesn't look like much is there. Anyone know if that position is correct? Is it just an old satellite view?

    The Endako Mine is at 54.036076, -125.113558. Also inputting Endako Mine Rd, Endako, BC, Canada will get you close.

    I missed part of the call (had to run to the grocery store for the honey) so I apologize if this was covered.

    So after the first analyst's question about why they don't just experiment with blasting patterns etc for six months before instead rushing into a rather sizable cash outlay, Perron said the results they would get from adding a secondary crusher would be much better than simply blasting.

    I have been (mistakenly?) under the impression that they felt they were going to get to nameplate capacity without the secondary crusher, but that the secondary crusher would improve throughput and recoveries to the point that it is a good investment.
    Am I mistaken about the need for the secondary crusher just to get to original planned throughput?

    If I'm not mistaken, I feel like JP missed an opportunity to clarify that this isn't additional money possibly being spent to get us where we thought we would be without it, but instead is additional optional money being invested because it will get a good return ... and hopefully emphasize that it's a high marginal return.

    Sorry if this was addressed later in the call. I haven't been able to go back and listen to the part I missed yet.

    TC Share price is behaving badly -

    cptnorb cptnorb May 19, 2014 1:10 PM Flag

    While I can say, I would have liked to see more of a pop from the news last week, I can also say I appreciate a little more time to accumulate at these low prices.
    Within the year, conservative guidance or not, the FCF from increased moly prices and Mt. Milligan will be impossible to ignore.
    I'm pretty fully leveraged right now, but if I weren't, I'd be looking at the Jan '15 $5 or $4 puts. Sell them today and if you get assigned it's at $2.65 or $2.75 effective share price. You could even sell them, and buy shares with the options premiums to leverage further. If TC is still trading below $5 ($4 more conservatively) by options expiration in January ... well I'd be surprised, let's just say that.

    Anyone selling any Puts?

    Last week I sold some Jan 2015 $5 puts and then bought shares with the proceeds. I have some sold June 14 $4 puts that are making me sweat a little now ... hopefully not after the call tomorrow.

  • Hi all-
    Been following TC for a couple years now, and happy to see that we've made it through (most of the way) the opening of MM.
    Clearly this earnings report on 5/13 will be huge for the short term, but I'm curious as to what folks are expecting to see in the long term. TC all time high is just shy of $25/sh ... clearly there has been/will be dilution with the TMEDs, etc, but does anyone have a calculation for what this thing will be worth in the long run?
    I think clearly we'll see some short-term pop, after this earnings report, if earnings come in as dragon and ultra have been posting (and thanks, guys, I do appreciate your willingness to share your substantial analysis with us all) ...
    Obviously we're under an overhang of TMED conversions and the need to refi the debt, and metals prices are persnickety to predict even in the short term. But are you thinking

    Just curious and thanks for any responses.

  • Hi all-
    I've been buying MTG since before it dropped to $0.66, and have continued buying on the way up. Now that a return to TTM profitability is within sight, I'm pretty confident that as a result we will see some more significant share price increases as a result.
    And ...
    Given MTG's former high was around 10x higher than current share prices, I'm wondering what people are thinking regarding possible share prices for a "recovered" MTG, i.e. once we are out from under the overhang of the mortgage crisis. Obviously there's been some significant dilution, but I'm curious what others are expecting.
    Thanks in advance.

    Grabbing More Now

    I can confirm (because I am an AAII member, which I recommend to everyone) that ADUS was sold from their model portfolio, and some of the proceeds were used to purchase FVE. This portfolio change was announced over the weekend. I was expecting some selloff as people update their positions but this is bigger than I was expecting.
    Once everyone gets out I would expect this to resume the upward trend ... most of the stocks in the AAII portfolio continue to do well even after the portfolio sells them.

    Hey Rivvir-
    The 60 votes was the "new" rule in 1975, down from 75%. The 75% was a rule introduced by Aaron Burr as Jefferson's VP … and it is only a Senate rule, not a Constitutional provision or anything else.

    I think much to the detriment of the Senate, the 1975 rule change allowed for silent filibusters, where the prior rule required a senator to actually appear on the senate floor and speak. I think both parties would be much less prone to filibuster if they had to actually be there and speak round the clock to maintain their filibuster.

    Except for me! No dry powder so I sold some June '14 $4 puts for $1.53. I think it's unlikely I'll get assigned, but even if I do, locking in 1300 shares at ~$2.47 ... I'll take it.

  • Hi all-
    Any ideas for adjusting my cost basis in my own tracking spreadsheet?
    I have NCT purchased at $4.26, $7.70, and $9.87.
    Should I subtract the NRZ $6.55 from these and list that as my new basis in NCT? That gives me an odd negative basis in one lot, so I'm a little reluctant to do that. Maybe I leave the original cost basis, as on the $7.70 lot (for instance) $6.55 of the original value is now residing in a share of NRZ?

    Should I list NRZ with cost basis of $0 or $6.55? I lean towards $0 ...

    Interested in your thoughts and what others' plans are.

    Hi all-
    Looking at tMeds ... seen Forbes article & other references giving the ticker as TC.PRT but Yahoo, Google, etc. can't find that ticker (nor Scottrade).
    In Scottrade I'm finding TCpT which does say Thompson Creek ... and is priced like tMeds.

    Just wondering if anyone can clarify for me why it's referred to in media as TC.PRT and then listed differently in Scottrade and not at all in GoogleFinance or Yahoo Finance under any ticker (that I can find, anyway).

    Thanks in advance.

  • What gives?
