    I am up fifty cents as I found two quarters this morning at the bus stop and I thought I was having a good day.

  • Good afternoon, someone told me that the CEO Girling was on tv advising that TRP was interested in getting into transporting crude by rail. I can not finds the link anywhere. If this is true, can anyone provide a link to the story.
    Thanks for any assistance provided.

    On December 29, 2014, I posted that they should eliminate the dividend so they could strengthen the balance sheet. I got half my wish. I wonder if they will consider eliminating the Dividend reinvestment program so the dilution will stop.

    Good afternoon, I believe Pengrowth will have to cut the dividend. The reason I suggest that is the price of oil and the impact on their debt covenants. They did a stress test and if oil was $80.00 per barrel, they would be in compliance but since oil is under $55, their cash flow to debt level puts them in violation of the covenants. I suggest they cut the dividend completely and use the savings ($250,000,000) to pay down debt. I believe Pengrowth can survive the downturn if they eliminate the dividend. I would rather give up the dividend to ensure the long term viability of the company. The dividend can always be reinstated if oil prices go up. I believe we want our directors to do what is best for the company and shareholders in the long term and that would be to eliminate the dividend and work at strengthening Pengrowth as a company. Thanks

  • Merry Christmas everyone, one thing I have learned is that stocks get over bought and over sold. The good ones return to a fair market price. Try not looking at the price of a stock but the quartley and annual reports and see if the management is delivering what they say they can. If they can, the price goes up. If they can't, the price goes down. Yes I am disappointed with the price decline in CELG but not shocked. My concern is not where will it be when the markets close today but where will it be in 24 months. I believe that CELG will be able to deliver the products that save lives and the profits will come and with rising profits comes higher stock prices. I remember watching Wall Street Week once where a guest said do not look at the price but the performance of the company. I tried it with one stock and it went from $70 to $200 in 5 years. It was not easy to do as most investors watch the daily price movement but it worked very well for that stock. Now, I will look at CELG reports and the stories about drug prices and ....keep my fingers crossed.

    Sentiment: Buy

    My bet is EnCana or Legacy Oil, but I am not risking a lot.

    Ok everyone, lets put on our thinking caps and figure out who may be the next take out candidate. Any ideas, please share.

    I wonder what Mr. Kvisle, CEO, options are for. I would be surprised if there is a sale of the company and the price is less than his options. My cost is in the mid six dollars, and I hope to break even after such a nasty drop. Also, I believe Mr. Kvisle's contract expires at the end of 2014, so one would assume a deal will be announce before then....if there is a deal.

    Check out Talisman. He is down on his investment.

    If everyone is so sure that FEYE will be taken over at some price higher that $47.00, why is it still $30.25?
    One would believe that if there was a takeover, FEYE should be at least $40.00. It seems that everyone has information about a take over and according to the old posts, it should have happened a year ago.
    There is no doubt that cyber security is a growing business and maybe FEYE will be at $47.00 based on it own merit.

    Good morning, this time Repsol can buy the entire company for less than any asset purchase they were looking for just a few months ago.
