    Stock price drops when market is up. Went to 2 different Best Buy stores, one in Calif. and one in Florida, and one Florida Tiger store. All of the salesmen said that they are selling Turtle headsets. Salesman at the Bakersfield CA store said Turtle was the Cadillac of headsets. This should be a breakout quarter for Hear.

    This is a difficult stock to analyze since it is heavily insider controlled and only one year old on their new structure. But, from what I've seen and heard, it may be the sleeper we like to find. Although a small portion of my portfolio, just bought 11,500 shares on a strong feeling that they will do well in the future.

    Regardless, good luck to al.

    TA and Black Bear Diner

    I eat at Black Bear on California Ave. in Bakersfield CA often. It's a great restaurant with reasonable prices and good menu. It would be a great advantage for both Black Bear and TA to have dozens of Black Bear Restaurants all over the country. Diners who know Black Bear will stop at TA's and buy gas and other store items. Black Bear and TA is a fantastic combination. Hope they add more Black Bears to their chain.

    Dumb Zack

    And a year ago, Zacks had TA as the Bull of the day. Regardless, TA is a slow growth stock. With the new additions coming on this quarter, and the 31 mini marts last years, changes are improving. Lower gas prices will attract more customers who will buy more non fuel items, increasing profits overall. Be patient.

    Reminds me of October 2002. Bought heavily then and made a bloody fortune in next six months. Will do it again this time. There is nothing wrong with HK. It's margin calls causing a great opportunity for people with cash.

    That's stupid advice. It's the time to buy. Everybody, except you, knows that.

    Yes. Ernst & Young were too big and too busy to fulfill what we needed, and were slow as molasses when filing our reports. This new firm should expedite what needs to be done.

    RIO and TRQ are not some hicks in the woods. In fact, they know exactly what they are doing. They will not be subjected to extortion or blackmail and have Mongolia on their knees. If it takes a few more months, so be it. This stock, TRQ, will be one of the largest percentage gainers in the next 5 years that the market has ever seen. The copper and gold is not going away. It is in a safe vault in the ground, and without RIO, Mongolia is a dead country who can't get foreign investors to invest acting as they do. Without foreign investment, Mongolia is nothing but a sand desert. As frustrating as it seems, with the overall market going up, and TRQ staying low, it can be very trying for day traders and get rich quick players. But, mark my words, after over 50 years in the market, TRQ has one of the best long term opportunities I've experienced. Buy it, put it away, go to sleep, and when the time is ripe, you will be well rewarded. I have over 119,000 shares and haven't lost a minute of sleep.

    Revolving credit increased

    Anyone who doesn't see this as an opportunity is crazy.

  • Just drove from Bakersfield Calif. to Fort Myers, FL. Although I drive 3-4 times a year round trips, combined with 2-3 round trips from FL to NY, I never saw so many big rigs on the road as I did this trip. The economy is rebounding solidly. It's going to be a big XMAS if the truck traffic is any indicator. At many areas, there were 7-8 trucks out of 10 on the road. Caravans were common.

    Stopped and analyzed 19 TA and Petro along the way. Many are still selling gas for $.02 to .10 higher than competition. Appears that TA doesn't care about car traffic, only trucks. The ones with same price as competitor were busier than those selling higher. Some of the stores are still old and out dated, though there were a few in very good condition. Most had a lot of trucks in the parking area, but both Tonopah, #225, outside Phoenix, and one outside Houston, had standing room only.

    2Q reporting Tuesday should be a good indication of what's going on. It should show great improvement over past years. But, the 3Q, hopefully reported on time in November, should be a blow out.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
