    If you are looking for more income like I am, you may want to consider selling call options on ARP.
    The Nov 22.5's are bid at 25 cents, offered at 35 cents. Am tempted to sell some if I can get 40 cents, maybe even 35 cents.

    They should update their hedges in the next report. Gas prices are my main concern here.

    Let's hope they locked in prices on at least some of the oil during the price rise that took place when Iraq erupted.

    Nice, not too much. Prudent in my mind with the way gas prices have plunged.

    Today's volume is the highest of the month. Wonder what's up, certainly not gas prices this month,

    LINE could be a candidate to buy ARP.

    One analyst who specializes in MLP's thinks there are many more buyouts to come.

    Good catch. Wonderful. Q2 results should be excellent.

    Let's hear about their hedges. Gas prices are getting trashed.

    Agreed, let's hear what the current hedges are. Let's hope they hedged at least some of the newly acquired oil production when prices spiked on the Iraq situation.

    Oil production numbers probably won't be reflected in q2 numbers as the acquisition didn't close until the end of the quarter.

  • jbcguy by jbcguy Jul 23, 2014 3:44 PM Flag

    Last distribution announcement was on June 27, so there should be one early next week. Let's hope for a little increase.

    That was the essence of Peter Lynch's book, One up on Wall Street. By doing their homework, individual investors can do better than fund managers.

    Most analysts and fund managers have terrible performance records. That's why index funds are so popular. Just duplicate the market and you'll do better than most of the so-called pros.

    Buffet has had some real blunders, too, which he readily admits. Let me know when you find a smart analyst who has never erred.

    Look, Leon Cooperman is the largest unitholder here. He's the former head of research for Goldman Sachs. Do a search on Leon Cooperman. He is like Peter Lynch and Warren Buffet.

    He's been buying more units. That's all you need to know.

    Gas was about 75% of production, but that was before the acquisition of more oil production in Colorado.

    ARP should be updating this in its next press release and conference call. Company should also report on its most recent hedge positions.

  • jbcguy jbcguy Jul 17, 2014 10:36 AM Flag

    The company has already said the drought is having no impact.

  • Should be announced Friday or Monday.

    Would like to get an update on ARP's current hedges. Gas prices have been tanking, and oil has also been weak. ARP's q2 reported results next month should be quite good as gas prices didn't start crumbling until about a month ago.

    Every ag company in the country has a disclaimer like that. Weather is always a risk in this industry.

  • Here's what SANW said:

    In California, we continue to not see any impact to our seed production capacity due to the drought and will likely have an update for you at our next conference call on the full outcome of the harvest which will commence at the end of July.

  • jbcguy jbcguy Jul 15, 2014 10:39 AM Flag

    You are pathetic.

    Mark Grewal, chief executive officer of S&W Seed Company commented, "I do not believe that our alfalfa seed production will be curtailed in any significant way by the drought. Our California production comes from the Imperial Valley, which is watered from the Colorado River, and from the San Joaquin Valley, where our seed farmers have access to well water for irrigation. None of our domestic farming is 'dry land farming' that relies on rain. Obviously, the California drought is totally irrelevant to Australia, where a majority of our seed tonnage is produced."
