Both sides distort the truth so badly. It angers me that they think we are so stupid that we believe those 30 sec smear ads. They totally disrespect voters and the electoral process.
Ahhhhh, I read up on Disney Magic Bands. While not totally new, they use NXP mifare technology. No more a boost than getting a subway deal but a nice addition.
We keep bring more online but they refuse to take some off line. Now we have excess and waiting for the first country to blink.
Look, Internationals are faced with $90-100 operation costs and shale is $70-80. Add to that the safety of working in the USA vs unstable foreign countries and it is a no brainer !!!!! IMO, The internationals should be migrating to the USA very soon.
I ate at Mc Donalds frequently for lunch, so am familiar with the products. I could actually reduce the fat and calories but could never reduce the salt intake given the menu choices. However, why is that a problem, hasn't it always been that way? Indeed it has, but I didn't care, you see, I am a part of the aging boomers, and we are trying to eat less Mc Donalds and healthier choices. How can Mc Donalds change to get boomers back?
Secondly, after the recession, it was to spend a few more dollars and eat at Chipolte or other fast food restaurants, that offered, healthier and tastier choices. So, Mc Donald's problem is the healthier the economy gets the more people move away from McDonalds. These are trends, but we all still enjoy a burger and fries after a night at the club. Yes, I said I was a boomer, but not dead.....lol
CHK is probably not even worth its underlying assets at the current market cap. The revenues will decline but marginally since we have increased production and hedges in place. In a perfect" Supply and demand" world, when prices drop , production declines. We have not seen this with OIl and Nat Gas , once again because hedges are in place. Now, once these derivatives expire, what happens to production? The energy market is a bit complex but we all know that many are losing money when the price of oil goes below $100. Will large internationals close expensive fields? Will OPEC drop production?
At the moment increased production displaces imports so we have room to grow. However, if our increased production contributes to Brent's fall, as has been the case, then WTI will follow. OPEC still holds the trump card. They can cut production at any time to support the price. They are still the major producer in the world.
IMO, the investment community and shareholders all want to know what they are planning for their pile of cash? They have so little debt, hardly worth it to pay it off. I feel they will buy an installer to compete on the rooftop segment.
I agree with you long term. Short term, we saw this summer the ability of the Nat Gas Industry to boost production with little or no effort. This past winter, we were lucky inventories were very high. This summer we were lucky that we had a mild Winter. As some point we will not be so lucky and THAT is when prices will go up.
The justification for the severe discounted share price is coming to an end. AMTD trades at 3.84 x Book, and ETFC is 1.26 x Book. Book price of ETFC is $17.97, much higher because we have about half the shares outstanding. 3.84 x $17.97 = $69
Someone mentioned on this Board that the Farmer's Almanac stated it would be a cold Winter. Maybe it is correct. IMO, low Inventories of Nat Gas is dangerous as we have much more pipelines to keep pressurized. I would love to know what that number is but probably kept secret.
OFF THE CHAIN !!!!!!!! Breaking out !!!!!!
