    Why does this stock have so many bashers?

    (Edit - lol - forgot to check my sp before posting, but you get the gist of it.)
    Only buy if you can afford it - at this point it's very speculative, but man, what possibilities....

    Burned investors, day traders, shorts, lying competitors and doG knows who else.
    Management has been a poor steward of capital, lousy at execution and terrible communicators, exacerbating the issues.
    Then there are those misguided drop by's that still think this company is a biotechnology company trying to produce an alternative to crude....

    This is a long term play with a frustrating management team that has at times been brilliant, and at times boneheaded, a team that has too much hubris. In other words, typical entrepreneurs are in charge LOL.

    This is good long term bet, especiually at these prices. If the company can survive, it COULD (caps for emphasis on the uncertianty of this) COULD perhaps be a game changer for dozens of industries in the next 20 or 230 years.

    In other words, this company couple be the Apple of the biotech industry, or it could be the next Webvan.

    LOL.

    Either way, with the undeniable potential of this company, why not take a flyer on a few thousand shares at these prices??? Put 'em under your mattress for a while. It could turn out to be a waste of money, or it might be the best thing you ever did......

    Ultra, it's likely the U.S. or Israel, or more likely both, are covertly backing the Saudis actions.
    They won't back down. They have enough money to take care of the kingdom, and enough of an army, with enough friends, to take care of Iran.

    As long as Iran does not not have Nukes. On this, the Saudis and Israelis are allies.
    I would suspect it's Israel who was the instigator, as I don't see Obama as smart enough or bold enough to make such a move on his own. Plus, that gives him someone else to blame, should anything go wrong.

    The Saudis could give a shiite about Nigeria or Venezuela, Iran is the only one they really fear, especially a Nuclear Iran.
    Russia will not go after the Saudis directly, even China would violently oppose such a move.
    The Saudis are doing this out of self preservation, but will extract what they can from Israel and the U.S. for "cooperating".

    Obama knows that cheap oil will help the economy in general, and he cares nothing about U.S. oil companies or middle class jobs. He's made that crystal clear over the last 6 miserable years. Neither one of those affects his golf game.

    For a long time I don't think they were even allowed to buy gold legally.
    What's the alternative?
    Jewelry?
    Investing in corrupt (more corrupt than western) communist companies.
    Either partially state owned, fully state owned or just controlled fully via state manipulation of the economy...
    Silver is too cheap to carry a lot of it around.
    Smaller amounts of Gold are fairly portable, and it's accepted in far more places than American Express....
    Most Chinese don't trust banks.
    Most Chinese cannot own foreign stocks.
    Land ownership is back, not not to the extent it is in the U.S.
    And land is not portable.
    Well off Chinese are, well, let's say they value mobility. Should the winds of the party blow the other direction, many will want to try and get out while they can, if they can. Money makes the IF much more likely.

    Gold is like a bank to most Chinese, it's the safest thing they can put their cash into. Which explains your premium. I'm sure there is a thriving black market for smuggled gold in China as well. Something which will not show up on any stats.....

    Figured that - thanks Ultra. Today is the first day yahoo is not being a real putz about me posting. Last week or to it just says NYET most of the time when I try a comment of rating.
    Did I mention I liked the old yahoo boards even more.
    Although, they "seem" to have cleaned up most of the robotic spam posting, it's not nearly as bad as it was.

    Could also just be sector rotation because of the FED not doing anything stupid today - a small tiptoe back into commodities, and as we have demonstrated, TC is a very undervalued house in a decent neighborhood, especially with it's recent cost cutting measures. Copper may drop to $2.70 next year, but at some point next year it's also probable it will hit $3.40 or better too.

    Volatility will remain high, but TC will get more love when people start to realize 1) copper isn't going to sub two buck and 2) they see how much money Mt Milligan will make even without a crusher.

    Armchair is just conservative, and a hyper realist if I remember for his earlier posts. Not a glass half full guy, but that's OK. He contributes on occasion.
    Do is kind of funny.
    You left out a number of the other clowns that I have on ignore- like whosyourfussydaddy, jeffries, etc.

    Some are funny, but most are just sad and tiresome so they go on ignore. It's not like I'm going to miss a pertinent fact or a worthwhile discussion about anything from anyone of them - LOL.

    We'd all take $4.50 or $5 - but that would be leaving a lot of possible appreciation on the table...

    Yup, you got my no so subtle reference - and that's exactly what he/she is. Excess fat. Especially between the ears.
    Correction - I should have said "biggest loser" above, but "looser" still sort of fits in a sardonic kind of way - lol.

    Yes, sorry if that was not clear. Need to be more aware of that. Just general comments/ranting along your topic line. Not directed at you by any means, pudentane!
    I certainly don't consider you brainless. Like I said, I have no problems with trading, or with being long or short - Light does or did a lot of trading, and even I have some December $2 calls I sold against my shares to make up for some of my purchased $5 calls that will expire worthless. I only have a problem with disingenuous liars, which seem to be most of the negative people on here.

    Let's go with option 1. Nothing good can come out of a buyout at these prices. Typically, no one pays a 2X premium, let alone 3 or 4 times.
    Could the board block it? Hard to say.

    "Muffin is making so much money by shorting it and TC."
    Maybe not so happy today muffin?

    I think Jilllian is looking for new contestants on the biggest looser - she might be able to help you get rid of that muffin top, and you can use the cash prize to cover your TC losses.

    I assume they still have to pick up 25% of the C&M costs....and since C&M does require some oversight they may need to keep paying that management fee.....

    I don't know, might stay up, might come down.
    Someone just wants to buy some shares today, I expect.
    Still, hope the squeeze ruins a few shorts Christmas's, especially if they were leveraged lol.
    Enjoying the lack of "ignored" messages on the board today.
    I don't care if you have a negative or a positive hypothesis, just back it up with some real (not made up) facts and some discussion, not brainless cheer leading or dumping.
    That's all.
    Don't be a mental welfare recipient. Make your brain work a little.

    PTRC

    RE - Market cap - no one has a good formula to value the 'Lime acreage - still.
    I think they have some interesting acreage there, but...
    Going to take some time, maybe JV wells to get interest back, and right now, no one is going to be committing any funds except to expand on proven, low cost acreage.
    Expect this environment to continue for 2 to 8 quarters.
    I know that's a big range, but too many variables to give anything besides a high and low range IMHO.

    PTRC

    by kalebkizmet Dec 11, 2014 5:33 PM
    dragon_legal_department dragon_legal_department 13 hours ago Flag

    Agree - I like your synopsis here. Pretty much what I have thought about PTRC from the get go. I never expected to see PTRC at one or two cents, but then again I also never thought I'd see $50 oil again either, and I'm not alone, that boat is pretty crowded....

    At one point I was hoping we'd see a $0.50 or even a $1+ stock, but with the "new" oil reality, if it sticks (and it will - oil may not stay at these levels but I think that $90-$100+ barrel days are going to be a long time coming back, too long for my time horizon - but it will tighten up some) anyway at these lower prices the "new" reality of PTRC upside may be $0.10 to $0.25, which I am fine with. I think management may find a way to get it over the $0.13 Chinese Warrant Price by YE 2015, even if the price does not stick there.

    Management is invested here at $0.03 for the most part (not the option grants, the real money they put in initially) so that's something to be cognizant of. Anything substantially over that and they may want to get out if they perceive this is going to turn into a novel instead of a short story.

    They won't be so.....direct. They will find a way to comply with the letter of the law, but keep a "disincentive" in place. They want the average westerner sheep to see them as "reasonable".
    Plausible deniability is an art form in China, one must always save face, even as you're stabbing your trading partner in the back.
