LOL! Pps is trending upward from recent low of $0.15. Pps fluctuated up and down by a penny or so and there is no need to be alarm of $0.19 pps today. Be patient! I have a very good feeling about current prospecting. Wait for the good news.
Per GAAP, after consolidating the financial, the company has to eliminate transactions between subsidiaries. Based on your comment, one subsidiary sold capitals to the other subsidiary, then those transactions need to be eliminated after consolidation. It is basically the same company and there should be no gain in revenue or capital. I don't why posters kept on pondering about it. The financial were reported via GAAP. I am sure it was audited by 3rd parties.
Also, there is a line. Even if you are in front of the line, you may not have the right of way. In another words, you may not get the open price in the morning. It can get very ugly if there is a panic sells.
...going forward, so that I will see net incomes again, instead of net losses. In AMZN case, growth to top lines is negatively correlated to bottom lines. Doesn't AMZN have analysts to run financial numbers to make sense of their business? Why does AMZN sell products below costs? As the product sales grow, so does the negative margin. Like it or not, fulfillment is part of COGS and AMZN needs to change its policy on fulfillment. Take a look at the data below.
2011; 2012; 2013; Q1-14
$42.0B; $51.7B; $60.9B; $15.7B - Product sales
$41.9B; $52.4B; $62.8B; $16.4B - COGS (including fulfillment)
$0.1B; $0.7B; $1.9B; $0.7B - Losses
0.3%; 1.3%; $3.1%; 4.2% - Margin of losses
$4.6B; $6.4B; $8.6B; $2.3B - Fulfillment
10.9%; 12.4%; 14.1%; 14.8% - Fulfillment % of product sales
Bottom line will get worse and will escalate even further as % of fulfillment to product sales increases. AMZN needs to charge customers for fulfillment, whether it will be full amount or at a percentage to have a healthy margin above all costs associated with product sales. Of course, this will have negative impact to the growth of top line, but the bottom line will improve significantly.
To improve bottom line further, AMZN need to focus more on services, because services have high margin. I noticed that services sales grew from 11% to 20% (2011 through Q1-14). Not only does the current policy on fulfillment contribute to growth product sales,but it also contribute to services sales growth. Unfortunately, the benefit from it so far doesn't offset all losses from product sales. Above was based on quick analysis (about 15 minutes of my time). I may be wrong or overlook something.
I need to register (which I don't want) to be able to read the rest of the article. Can you cut and paste the contents in a post. Thanks
If you don't provide links, I will assume you exaggerated the situation, especially about the considerations part for KOG to merge. As Bakken oil company daily productions exceeded 1 million barrels and will continue to grow further, flaring is a significant problem, in terms of air pollutions. Bakken energy companies were issued warning to curtail flaring or there will be a cap on production. There is no regulation yet that will go into effect regarding such matter. Bakken players should be proactive on this matter and start building natural gas infrastructure to curtail flaring, if they have not done so. Either way, it will affect their bottom line. With natural gas infrastructure, at least, their will be some revenue from it to offset the cost. In times, natural gas revenue probably will exceed costs and improve bottom line.
Another issue we may want to take notice. There is safety issues about railroad transportation of oils. Regulatory department is contemplating to reduce the capacity of transportation and, also, lower the speed of the railroad. Can the railroad keep up with the booming oil productions?
I used to hate spam posts. 99% of those spams are usually for worthless stocks. But, it doesn't hurt to spend few minutes to check it out. I am adding Emerald Oil (EOX) to my Keep Track Portfolio. EOX's pps performance was very poor. From above $40 at early 2011 down to about $6 at end of 2012. Since then, pps fluctuated sideways. For the same period as above, EOX financed its ops mainly through equity and diluted common shares (from about 21K shares to 66M shares). EOX has minimal debts prior to 2014. With insignificant growth to the operating cash flow for past years, obviously, EOX was unsuccessful with their capital projects. On the bright side, it's has positive operating cash flow. For past few quarters, EOX spent a lot on capital (2 or 3 times more than the usual). Early this year, EOX borrowed about $170M to finance it's capital expenditures. Whatever capital projects they have right now, EOX can't afford to fail this time with such high debts. That's my take on the initial few minutes of due diligence. It's worth to investigate further, especially on the capital projects. EOX has about $500M market capital. We all know that successful E&P will be in billions. I would wait to see significant improvement in operating cash flow before I invest in EOX, based on EOX track records and to minimize the risk.
Out of hundred spams I saw, an oil company, AOIL, caught my attention and has potential of high returns, IMO. Even though it is a penny stock, I like AOIL financials and recent management directions. I decided to purchased 6 figures shares. The company will know if it has hidden gem in about 2 weeks, after drilling reports. If the company is successful, I will rake in millions in a couple of years. At this point, IMO, AOIL is a low risk and high return investment.
Sorry, my bad. I skim through your post and assume you meant KOG purchase date will be the conversion date. :o)
I think you are wrong. Either stock will move in tandem with the other stock, depending on impact to top and bottom lines to either stock (dependency goes both way). The focal point will still be .177 ratio. If KOG's earnings is stellar, KOG's pps will jump and WLL's pps (benefit from it) will move in tandem with it. Of course, there will be some divergence to .177 ratio, but it will be small. If KOG's earnings is really bad, then both stock will be lower.
Wrong. The purchase date for KOG shares remain the same. The stock conversion is non-taxable. When selling after the conversion date, profits will be based on KOG's purchase date and WLL's selling date.
I think you and others are missing the point. Everybody knows the deal - 1 KOG share for .177 WLL share. You and others don't need to keep on repeating it. The deal was filed on July 13. Based on the previous closing prices (Friday, July 11), with .177 of WLL, KOG was worth $13.90, which is below recent high, below recent average prices and below Friday closing price. This indicates that .177 ratio is low and unfair for KOG shareholders, raised red flags and warranted for investigations (over a dozen investigations so far). As I mentioned before, I think the ratio was determined months ago and is outdated. They need to update the ratio with current data. Some posters already rationalized it really doesn't matter, because in the long run, WLL will be above $100 and KOG share will be above $17.7 (based on .177 ratio). Even if WLL will jump above $100, you cannot use it to justify cheating current KOG shareholders with an unfair deal. We will see if the ratio .177 is fair or not from the investigations.
I am also curious about that too. IMO, until the deal is finalized, KOG and WLL pps aren't link directly in the system. .177 of WLL pps will be the focal point for KOG pps. KOG pps trading below it will be undervalue and vice versa. Anything below the focal point will be an opportunity. I thought the divergence would be around 10 cents, at most. That 20 cents above the focal is about 1.3% overvalue.
Let's put it this way. Let's say that analysts provide WLL's target price to be $150 and WLL acquired KOG for .127 of WLL's shares or $10 per KOG shares. Are you are fine with such deal? .127 of $150 will give you $19.05 pps. We all know only doofus like wilbie100 will accept such offer, but investors in the right mind won't. The question or issue at hand is is KOG worth .177 of WLL's shares? Many think KOG is worth more. That is why there are about a dozen of investigations initiated on KOG's senior managements and BOD.
Duh! How do you think numerous (make that a dozen) investigations started? The deal was compared to recent average stock prices and to recent high. Again, you are too stupid to realize that KOG's shareholder should get more of the pie from the deal. In another word, it is worth more than .177 of WLL shares. Investigations will shed light into the matters.
Again, you should seek professional help about ED thingy. LOL!
First of all, you should get your head out of you #$%$ to see clearly that I am not Ed. You need to seek professional help on your fixation of Ed and associating Ed to other people.
Secondly, you are such a doofus, very eager to give stupid lesson to other people.
I, as well as others, am not arguing about the potential synergies and even more robust growth for both WLL and KOG as a whole, DUMB@ZZ. I am arguing about the deal itself as unfair to KOG shareholders. The deal was TAKEUNDER. WLL acquired KOG for less than the market value. KOG closed on Friday at $14.23 vs $13.90 from .177 of WLL shares. Clearly, that was unfair and warranted for investigations on KOG's BOD. KOG's shareholders should get more pieces of the pie. I guess you are too stupid to realize that.
LOL! You are such a doofus. WLL acquired or bought KOG. Method of payment for receiving KOG's assets was .177 of WLL shares (which in many relevant viewers mind is low). FYI, method of payment for any acquisition could be all cash, all stock or combination of both. It's you who need to refresh M&A and you should read carefully what is stated in Form 8K filed.
KOG is worth more than .177 of WLL shares... PERIOD! You and other so called KOG loyal longs gave WLL to much credits and more credits than KOG for future growth. There are lots of investigations going on right about the deal which reflected dissatisfaction of many parties involved. Perhaps, they should adjust and add 10% or 20% to .177 to quench those investigations and satisfy those parties.
