OMG....not the $132 again! Too funny. Brings back memories of the Libya crisis. If the Iraq crisis continues and this stock reacts the same as synm did back then.....the equivalent of $23 in todays post split price.....I think I will sell the story. Good to hear from you again navy......good times ahead.
wow...that's a lot of words for saying absolutely nothing. You should be on TV! Drivel...as me mum used to say.
The big boys who have been doing Coal to Liquids, CTL in the world are down in South Africa. Been doing it since shortly after WWII. They are listed on our exchange as Sasol, SSL. They pay a nice dividend. They just announced they are coming to America...Lousiana, to install the largest Natural Gas to Liquids, GTL facility the world has ever seen. Going to cost around $20 billion. That is a great location as that is where all the refined products are shipped out of and sold. The conversion ratio and environmental permits are much much easier as it emits many times less CO2 than CTL. Natural gas prices won't be a factor since they own their own natural gas. Not to mention the massive reserves of shale gas not in this country.
Coal has been the work horse for power generation in the country for decades. Before that it was burning wood. Before that whale oil. Times are a changing... Just like it did for Kodak and AOL. Who knows, maybe one day, someone will put in CTL here in the US. With Sasol putting in GTL, that tells me what I need to know.
ya think? Look at the fundamental data under key statistics and compare side by side. That and they are making the point that ANR is not 90% met coal like walter is. Still thermal coal demand in the world, especially china and Germany and india.
good question lacevelo. I see no cash was transferred from synm...go figure. How about that "capped call" transaction? Never heard of it. How about 2.75% interest on that 5 year note? Wow. That is what I paid on a 30-year mortgage with a 5-year ARM. That is very low. And a conversion of $13.26? that's over 2 bucks more than now...about 20% higher. And the capped call takes 92.5% of that off the table? This stuff is over my head. Good article. Leaned something today. I guess when you guys get your shares you guys will post what the actual conversion was, eh?
sorry synmvet2...bit slow today. Had to get a tooth pulled that apparently had roots going up into my friggin temple. I feel like sh&t. Can't eat and I am starving! Going to read the article.....ugh... I feel like I used to after fighting with my 4 brothers growing up. I guess I have turned into a woos. Have noticed the stock price last few days....wow. Looks like a launch pad....oops. Sorry folks, not supposed to pump this stock. Wellptboy will be all over me for that slip of the tongue... Novacaine wearing off...this is going to suck.
rising oil prices are not a bad thing for chkr mark. They never are for any producer of oil or NGL. That is not how hedging works. They will not capitalize on 100% of the gains.....but they will indeed capitalize. If you go look up the oil futures, you will see they are up well into the future. The future that chkr has not fully hedged.....as it did not even exist. Maybe they are now at these prices....and come that time when its $150 per bbl, it will be the same story from seeking alpha.
Stock price is up. The market knows. The insiders at chkr know.
You hear that hog....we are taking honest investor monies. Wow. How would we be doing that by the way? And what is an "honest investor"? You got to love this guy. By the way HOG...how is our dark pool doing these days? We still taking in lots of honest investor monies? Would you like to borrow my keyboard to answer that? Come on up here North west of Seattle to the Olympic mountains. That is where my keyboard is. Of course, I could just fedex it to you.
On a separate note....I see regi up nicely on this whole Iraq oil story. Yeah..... How is that for a pump wellptboy?
Since we don't want to be reliable on foreign oil kind of thing....blah, blah, blah... (you know how politicians like to play that card). With the emphasis on US Oil production, by both our govt. and big oil, think maybe they agree to extend the dollar tax credit? Make a deal? Now would be the time. Republicans may tie it to the keystone pipeline. Dems may tie it to backing off fracing issues and opening up more lands....who knows. But now is the time to make a deal. Hope we get one. Renewable fuels are still a drop in the bucket in overall demand. They should do it, just like there is a tax credit in place for solar installations and tax credits for oil infield well development.
what a doosh. 3 things that makes this the stupid post of all time. 1) been there done that. Oil not going to 150 because sunnies take over from shias in Iraq. 2) NG is not imported into US, nor does Iraq export NG. It is used for generating electricity. OIl is used for transportation fuels like jet fuel, fuel oil for shipping, diesel for trucks and trains, gasoline for cars. 3) While coal is tied to natural gas.....its thermal coal that is tied to NG. Walter is a met coal player.....the stuff used for steel. Go back to bed doosh..... you are as bad as most of those talking heads on TV.
Dang right getting ready for football....both college and pro...now that I leave near Seattle. That was fun last year. The whole town is still buzzing. Talks of repeat still abound. On to college.....since I lived in South Carolina for 19 years, I am a big gamecock fan. They were sooooo close last few years. Now that we lost the No. 1 draft pick....not sure what kind of team we have. If I remember correctly HOG, you were a big Baylor fan, eh?? Great program. High scoring offense, fun to watch.
I like your MO by the way. You never know what will happen to the tax credit situation. Just because it has been reinstated in the past, does not mean it will again. Lots of others allowed to lapse. And anyway, the RIN values should correct to compensate, as will the supply and demand situation. It will drive out lots of little guys. These higher oil and diesel prices we are seeing of late cannot hurt...as long as feedstock prices don't follow them upwards. So far they have not. I see yellow grease still sitting at 32 cents per pound.
excuse me? Fannie and Freddie were the fraudsters. The CEO of this company, fannie....killed himself in his home instead of face what he had done. The friggin govt. had to come to the rescue and take over this company and the stock and put it in receivership. They own over 90% of all the common stock and all the profits (or losses and liabilities) go directly to the treasury. If I could reach through my screen and put my hands around your throat, I would....you stupid little fool!!!
exactly. Story that Icahn came out and bought a few shares....about a 1/4 of one day worth of trading. 51 million bucks worth not much for Icahn. Since this obvious "let me unwind my position slowly" ploy for his on and off again buddy....his buddy has been selling, taking profits. No reason to own this now. Let it go and wait for a rebound if there ever is one. The only thing that makes this stock go up is more buyers of the shares than sellers....that's it. Right now there is more sellers and that is continuing.
Sell as fast as you can...this is your chance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Quick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Look for the stock to close back down near where it started...say mid 40s by end of day. Its a pop on the Iraq story....all small oil stocks are up. Sell now would be the smart play. Can buy it back later at a lower price. This is what history has taught us again and again. Same thing happened with the Libya crisis a couple of years ago. Best of luck
oh yeah, forgot about that story. Not going to happen though as a guess. All talk. I have always assumed it was going to be converted over to biodiesel from renewable, but they have stated how they are now in the renewable fuels market. I think they picked up some talent from down the road at the Valero/Darling renewable diesel plant. Just a guess. Maybe they will make some of that weird insulation stuff....what was that called? PCM? or something like that?
for just the DF plant. Since they own many plants across the country, they may just report on an overall basis of the company. Too bad. I would like to know what they did and how the did it if it proves successful. A lot of issues were basic operational and maintenance issues. Design issues? Feedstock? Electromagnetic field surrounding the synm DF plant? Voodoo?
this morning? Oil up huge due to IRAQ situation....rebels taking over oil producing region...oil up big and not the big natural gas injections...gas up big. Sooooo? Is it a 1-day delay? Lets see. It is flat right now at $10.66.....will she pop tomorrow? Today?
got suckered in with that debt story did you? I think people are figuring out what that poorly written story is all about. Cash flow flexibility. Straight down, straight up. Shows you should not pay attention to accounting #$%$ like that on a day to day basis. Just watch the friggin margins based on corn and ethanol prices. Not that hard people. Of course with PEIX, you have to pay attention to all those warrants.
