Added more UGAZ late in the day @ 7.31. Earlier buy @ 7.40. Why play the equities? Go for the raw meat. SCO to bet oil down. DGZ to bet natgas down. UGAZ to bet Natgas up.
Everyone have a great weekend......................Kel
Holding some too, but much less than your position. What do you think it would take to get it below $10? I think likely something very damaging to the stock like a significant distribution cut or MUCH lower oil and/or Natgas prices. I think with their very strong hedging program that MEMP has stronger resistance to falling energy prices than many other producers.
Just my opinion...............Kel
Been here before. In @ 1.34. Good tax loss rebound candidate. Will look for a bounce after Jan. 1st. Also bought MSTX and OXGN. All biotechs near 52 week lows w/ enough cash to not be an immediate concern.
Natgas is having a very rough day. Cold weather will return.
Kel..................holding CHK and just bought UGAZ @ 7.40.
Weather comments.........Here in Green Bay winter hasn't hit hard yet. Temps today in the mid 20s F. The 14 day forecast shows mild weather until almost the year end when the lows will be in the 0 - 10 area and highs of 15-20 F.
A real cold spell is when we get several days in a row where the highs for the day are +5 or lower. At extremes we can get several days in a row where the temp never gets above 0 F (even in the daytime). The good side of that is that it doesn't snow much when it gets to the very cold levels and the sun will shine.
We don't normally get the big snow storms here like Buffalo. They get "lake effect" snow from L. Erie. The UP (Upper Michigan) has some areas that get the same effect from L. Superior. Right now we only have a trace of snow on the ground with a little in the forecast for next week.
Remember just a few days ago.....Russia was collapsing. Our markets were tumbling. Oil was crashing........And now everything is hunky-dorry? A little hard to believe. Like you said in my thread. The Wall Street talking heads are all bullish now. They need you, me, and all the other small guys to buy from them.
I'm also about 58% in cash.
Good luck with your short..............Kel
Suspend the dist for one year and state that as the intention.
Use those funds to make lowball producing property purchases. There are numerous other companies out there that are or will be desperate to sell developed properties. Cash (not yield) will be king in this environment. Can you imagine picking up several $100 million of producing properties at firesale prices?
Kel............a holder of MEMP
They expect deal to close by 12-31-14. They put down a 5% deposit for the deal....around $265 million, which they "could" lose if the deal doesn't close by 3-31-15.
SWN is doing a bridge loan with Bank of America / Merrill Lynch for $5.0 billion. After the deal is completed, they will at some point in 2015 seek to turn that bridge loan into permanent financing.
My bad.....Dimes are .07234 oz. pure silver. (not .7234)
War nickels are .05626 oz. pure silver (not .5626)
Forgot the "zero" after the decimal point on both.
Merc and Roosy dimes (up to '64) have .7234 oz. pure silver
War nickels (some 1942s - 1945) have .5626 oz. pure silver

We'll see heavy cuts in CAPEX for 2015. Could also be shut-ins on money losing wells as time rolls forward. Many domestic wells losing money at even $75 WTI. Supply will correct in a common sense way. Will just take awhile.
Kel............holding CHK, AREX, and USEG
Probably would have need to be at .37 bid for you to get a .385 buy. You might still get lucky. All it takes is one big seller taking a tax loss.
I wish this company was a little more generous with press releases. The 1/4ly report for the current 1/4 won't come out until about March 20 (last year's Q4 release date).
Draw of 54
Inventory - 64
Natgas hesitated for a few minutes, then headed lower. Gave me enough time to sell my UGAZ @ 9.18 (bought @ 8.44 on Tuesday).
Kel...............holding CHK and may add.
