    Get lost jerk! There's no new issue even being considered. The Apollo Global deal takes care of the TMS and the funds are available for the 2014 drilling program. Thereafter, the cash flows of all the new wells will be sufficient to continue the drilling programs for 2015. Cover your short during this recent market pull back or you will forever be sorry. I have 87,000 shares at $3.42 and know this company inside and out. I'm certainly not going to invest this kind of money on a whim. You think the Hunt family and all of the other insiders are stupid and you are smart? Get real. HK is the opportunity of a lifetime.

    Just drove from upper state NY to Fort Myers, Florida. All of TA and Petro signs were exactly the same price as their across the street competitors. This was in contrast to 2 months ago, when almost every TA and Petro was $.02 to $.10 higher than their across the street competitor on my recent drives from Calif to Fl and Fl to NY. Looks like TA management got the message that higher prices did not bring in car business. Even I, as a large stockholder, did not buy gas at my own stations because I just wasn't about to pay $.04 to $.10 more for gas and higher prices for coffee refills. Most of the stores have lousy coffee dispensers and terrible condiments than the competitors. Now, if they would match the coffee dispensaries similar to Racetrac, Raceway, 7-11, Pilot, Flying J and most of the Exxon and Shell stations, maybe more car travelers would shop there. They could really blow out the competition if they would have a "Home of the $.99 cent refill."

    Up until recently, it seems like they did not care about car travelers, only trucks.

  • This reported tax dispute has been previously refuted.


    Oyu Tolgoi was the country’s sixth biggest taxpayer in 2011, according to the General Tax Office. This was before the mine was even operational. From January 2010 through November 2012, Oyu Tolgoi had paid US$803 million in taxes and payments to the Government. Like all responsible companies, Oyu Tolgoi submits its tax records to the Ministry of Finance and the Mongolian Tax Authority (MTA).

    Between 2010 and 2011, Oyu Tolgoi LLC loaned US$250 million to Government of Mongolia, at the Government’s request. Part of this was a US$150 million loan in the form of a tax pre-payment, with repayment coming in tax credits. Under the Prepayment Agreement, Oyu Tolgoi was entitled to use these tax credits from 2012.

    Some people incorrectly accuse Oyu Tolgoi of not paying its taxes.

    In fact, in 2012 Oyu Tolgoi paid a total of US$280 million in national and local taxes and other government fees. The taxes paid included:
    US$33.3 million to the MTA in taxes and payments.
    US$94.6 million to the Umnugobi Tax and Customs authority.
    US$122.5 million in VAT paid via suppliers.
    US$29.7 million in social security and other fees.

    Anyone not taking advantage of this recent drop in share price is losing an opportunity to profit huge in the next 6 month.

    Mr 44,000 shares is quiet....

    Currently $7.132. Bought original in Dec 12 @ $4.83, some in the $5's, some in the 6's,some in the $7's, some in the $8's, and even 3000 @ $9.12. It's far from being my best holding at the time, but I'm confident it will be eventually. I invest in small cap growth companies for long term. RDN bought in the low $2's is currently the best; BAC in the $5's; and HK bought just a few months ago in the $3.30's are doing well, but, my 88,000 TRQ @ $4.27 is currently my worst. I'm 70 years old and been in the market since the 60's. Made a bloody fortune during the 8 years of Clinton; lost a lot during Bush; and doing very well with Obama. And guess what? I'm a Republican who's made money under Democrats.

    Stupid. The issuing of the new stock, the purchase of the new Mini Marts, and the settlement is why we can now take advantage of the tax credits. You really need to go back to school or get a life outside the stock market.

    Why should I be noisy? TA is only one of a dozens of my holdings and only 9% of my portfolio. Nothing new since last post except it's now 47,000.

    Get a life.

    Quit your complaining. Although I don't agree on some of management's doings, in this case they are doing what is necessary and for our benefit. They settled the Anti-Trust case and put it behind us. They are attempting to recalculate the tax credits which will be to our advantage, and unfortunately, takes time to compute. They purchased 31 new Mini-Marts which will add to revenue. Instead of complaining, you should be taking advantage of the current low price per share. Anything under $7.75 per share is a steal.

    I own 44,000 shares and am fully committed, and am buying a few more every day I can while it's under $7.75. Sure it may drop a little more due to market fluctuations, but in the long run, it will increase in value as things unfold.

    In the past 3 months, I drove from Florida to California and return; Florida to New York and return; and just got back to Florida from California. There is much more truck traffic on the road these past 3 trips than there was last year and the year before on my many trips. In some sections, 7 out of every 10 vehicles going the opposite way were big rigs. The economy is moving, and business is getting back to what it was prior to 2008. A lot of that truck traffic is going to TA. Bet on it, and just be patient.
