    I agree with your cynicism; having owned BTE since 2006. The rigged market also did this to me on TNH, finally making me fold, but going down $15 per share after me. Seems to me the key is what an old (honest, now deceased) stockbroker friend of mine said years ago still holds true: "your first loss is your least loss". With BTE, when oil first stared sliding should have been the time to bail.

    I am being sarcastic. Who knows when or if this will recover! Considered investing in CF itself. My mistake.

  • Look at CF's website link to TNH:Cash distributions depend on TNCLP's earnings as well as cash requirements for working capital needs and capital expenditures. In 2014, TNCLP is expected to have capital expenditures in the range of $70 million to $80 million. A turnaround of approximately 50 percent of the complex is anticipated to occur in the first quarter of 2015, which is expected to last approximately one month. This event will result in lower production and sales, and is expected to have an impact on cash available to fund distributions.

    They sure do like to put a lot of PR out there. Seems to be meaningless in helping out the stock price. I have been a very long term shareholder. It's been a miserable last few years. Kind of wish Ahmad Hussein (spelling?) had won the proxy battle. Certainly Sheldon doesn't care about us. The competition is eating QSII up alive. Normally, I am not this cynical, but the bleeding has been painful. As that animated gentleman on CNBC would say "the house of pain!".

    I reiterate that you sound like a broken record.! Is there any way for them to recover?

  • Anyone care to speculate on the impact to AMBS? How far in advance can LymPro predict this hideous disease?

    A new blood test for Alzheimer’s appears to detect the disease as many as 10 years before clinical diagnosis is possible -- far sooner than other tests in development.

    The test, described publicly for the first time today, could someday soon be used to identify and treat patients with Alzheimer’s disease far earlier in disease progression. Those people could participate in clinical trials to help find new treatments. Already, the test distinguishes between patients and healthy elderly with 100 percent accuracy.

    “We were able to perfectly classify patients and controls,” said Dimitrios Kapogiannis, lead author on the study and a neuroscientist at the National Institute on Aging, part of the National Institutes of Health. He spoke in a presentation at the Society for Neuroscience conference in Washington.

    The blood test is still in the early stages of development. It has only been evaluated in 174 individuals and would require a larger, long-term study before widespread use, the authors said in a statement.

    Two other potential Alzheimer’s blood tests were announced earlier this year. One measures 10 fats in the bloodstream that appear to predict dementia with 90 percent accuracy within three years of onset. Another uses 10 proteins in the blood to predict onset with 87 percent accuracy within a year.

    At the National Institute of Aging, meanwhile, Kapogiannis and his team identified a single protein in the brain involved in insulin signaling, called IRS-1, that appears to be defective in Alzheimer’s patients.

    Why is SFTBY still going down?

  • ihaveaclue4you ihaveaclue4you Nov 3, 2014 9:26 PM Flag

    Pardon the typo, "Sprint" (S), not "print". Anyway, I am long Softbank and hope there is minimal, if any impact from this news.

  • Since Softbank owns 80% of Sprint, anyone care to comment on the potential impact of Sprint's downbeat report? print reported a loss of 19 cents per share on Monday, worse than even the most pessimistic of the 15 Wall Street estimates recorded by Thomson Reuters.

    Revenue for the quarter came in at $8.49 billion, against the comparable year-ago figure of $7.75 billion.

    Analysts had expected Sprint to report a loss of about 6 cents per share on $8.59 billion in revenue, according to a consensus estimate from Thomson Reuters.
    The stock fell 7 percent in after-hours trading.

    BTE isn't an MLP, is it?

    No it is not. Unfortunately, the author of this article didn't prepare it very carefully. When the Canadian Finance Minister abolished these trusts, Baytex became a regular corporation, paying taxes to the Government, but still maintaining a decent monthly dividend for its shareholders. Of course oil's weakness and the U.S. dollar's strength have wreaked havoc on the stock. But in an oil price recovery, I think you will get better bang for the buck with BTE than some of the bigger oils (XOM, CVX, for example.). However, look for an earnings release. Don't know the extent of their hedging off the top of my head, but it might provide a small cushion. Earnings will be lower than last year, but by how much??? The Eagle Ford (Aurora) shale acquisition was done before oil collapsed. Timing was a bit off, but in the long run, should be a positive. The world is not yet fossil fuel free. Good luck in your decision.

    Revenue (not earnings) guidance from SYNA's website: Kathy Bayless, CFO, added, "With the growth of Synaptics' core business and the addition of Renesas SP Drivers this quarter, we are very pleased to note that December quarter revenue is expected to be more than double last year's December quarter revenue. Considering seasonal market dynamics and customer ramp cycles, we expect downward sequential revenue trends in our core business from the September quarter. Based on the combined backlog of Synaptics and Renesas SP Drivers of approximately $260 million entering the December quarter, customer forecasts, and expected product mix, we anticipate revenue to be in the range of $415 million to $450 million, a new record for Synaptics."

    So what. It pays a monthly dividend. What is your point? Wouldn't you be better served talking about the North Dakota asset sale, oil price weakness or other pertinent matters?
