Actually, we don't want earnings too good. The last time earnings were really high the stock went down. Everyone assumed all the earnings were in that qtr and the next qtr would be awful. It is best to smooth earnings out but impossible in this industry. You really need to look at the entire year.
As the year goes on, word of Tetrasun's release will play an important role in the stock price. We are not valued as other roof top producers since we don't have a product for that market. This is a show me market, and FSLR has shown nothing as of yet.
I can't be certain but expect our hedged prices are greater than 16%. If I recall, everyone was complaining about the horrible hedges from last year.
EIA discusses storage, The average unit value of what storage holders put into storage from April 4 to July 4 was $4.58/MMBtu, 16% higher than the average value for the same 14 weeks last year of $3.96/MMBtu.
EIA, mentioned this on their weekly wrap-up,
•The average daily Mont Belvieu, Texas, natural gas plant liquids composite price for the week covering June 30 to July 4 decreased by 20 cents/MMBtu (1.9%) compared to last week (June 23—27), to $9.99/MMBtu. Prices declined for propane, butane, isobutene, and natural gasoline, by 2.6%, 1.5%, 2.1%, and 2.3%, respectively. The ethane price increased by 0.4%.
No, you did not interpret my sentence properly. I am not referring to storage levels. I track the progress of the injection season. Compared to last year at this time we have put in
20 % more than last year at this time.
Yep, Lets assume these shorts are as smart as they think they are. In that case, we should all buy as they covered 4.6 million shares on the last report.
The industry getting excited by a 93 injection number. Injection season is up 20% compared to last season. That may be enough to get us to a satisfactory level, but not the 3.8 Tcf.
IMO, the decline is more due to the decline in oil prices. We are hedged on both but higher is probably always better.
The Congress will be allowed to stay in the USA, but most agree they should be deported!
Speaking of criminals,Buy the E-Trade manipulated dip !!!!!!
Very seldom do I play out of the money options. I would rather buy $18 options and pay the same .58 premium.
That is just the way the market is. Once announced, and especially if the price is slightly cheaper than traditional solar, then we are off to the races.
Their predictions for 2014 and 2015 are,
The escalating conflict in Iraq, continued record-high levels of Chinese crude oil imports in 2014, and ongoing delays to Libyan oil exports have contributed to upward price pressure,” the government agency said.
For 2014, the EIA forecast average prices of $100.98 a barrel for West Texas Intermediate crude oil CLQ4 +0.04% , up from an estimate of $98.67 in the previous monthly report. It estimates an average 2015 price of $95.17, up from $90.92.
THIS SHOULD BODE WELL FOR CHK.
Less global, less Chinese, equals Bankruptcy for those that are on the edge. That is a positive for ALL solar !
