Were you and I to enumerate all the dumb (and I will add vulgar) posts on this board, we would have millions of pages of "meaningless" text. That is the nature of the noise we make. I don't mind my contribution being judged--I put it out there so it deserves to be judged. But it should be read first. Or--sometimes--just ignored.
Add this in---instability in Ukraine and NIgeria, some destabilization of Iranian deal, and pressure on administration to deal Russia REAL sanctions. We will see--but shake the world up a little, and it vibrates every barrel of oil.
Such eloquence--and a real way with spacing and quotes. I will bet you are under 5' 3"--right? And you have been diagnosed as an inferior with a superiority complex--the type Adler believed was a serious disservice to the community. Plunge that dagger deeper next time--
Jesuis--what is wrong with you sub-literates? Can't you read? I called such an AH trade "meaningless"--READ READ READ! Better yet--understand. And next time, feel shame over your own inability to comprehend the written word.
of the dimwits who sold in AH to the tune of -.42!!! Why destroy our nights with such a meaningless, yet disturbing, thing? We need some rules relative to AH behavior
Maybe a bit impatient, but as I said (somewhere in this thread, MHR has no serious problems--just a a bit of misdirection. Like you, I have a high opinion of GE's "media presence." I do think, however, he has overstated matters several times of late. Generally, that is not a problem--but really, ht--he has become the putative spokesperson for the Bakken babies. It is quite extraordinary and no small accomplishment. In fact, if you go to the TPLM site, you will see I defended GE and called him a "capital asset." I really mean that. But with his significant media presence, he also has the power to jump start things a bit too quickly before we have results. He also doesn't care to characterize weak results as weak results. Well--I call this misdirection. Not a serious problem nonetheless.
Finally, I respect your posts and admit that I don't spend enough time on this site to know who obboi is. But I am long--six years worth--and I said it directly--that I just want to see MHR make a turn this week. Frankly, it began doing that today. I am not displeased. I don't expect positive news everyday and I like MHR as much as I ever did. I just want a bit more balance between GE statements and reality--that would be best for all of us.
Thanks for your patient and decent response--as always.
Well--again--though I agree that Gary's vocal "overprojecting" in public is not helpful right now, overall, he is a "capital asset." You sold out your MHR so it doesn't really matter for you. still hold 30,000 shares, so I view him as "unearned income" and believe me, during the "lawsuit" debacle last year, he added a lot to the bottom line.
Anyway, I understand your view.
Touche' Fab--your post reveals no errors in critical thinking---and--to confirm my position, though I know that, at least biblically, we ought not to revel in the enemy's suffering, I admit to my joy--pure "schadenfreude" in knowing that "shorts" are about to get the bruising they deserve. More cause of celebration---three cups of brandified coffee. What a moment--transitory, perhaps, but rippingly good, right?
GE is part of the problem right now. I think the guy is a media miracle--but he is overprojecting and missing the mark--this has happened several times this year. He is not specifically the cause, but he is not helping the cause either.
Come on SP!!! Celebrate!! Load the coffee cup with brandy this morning. Think of this as "breakeven"--what small business owner doesn't love that one moment--he hits the 8000th unit and the rest is contribution margin. That's how I see it--ask Fab--he will tell you that this is, for me, the equivalent of Viagra, Vicodin, and...."the smell of victory in the morning!"
Well--I am celebrating because I expected SO MUCH WORSE (you have read my posts, so you know that is true). Your assessment is correct--spot on. But I have spent five months in vituperative mode relative to TPLM and, frankly, I can let up a bit now. So--that really IS cause for celebration.
Hmm--I can see that you invested considerable thought into this response. Well--calm down and put your inner troglodyte to bed. Remember, I am long too and as I say in another post--there is no serious damage here--just some misdirection. So--let's both look forward to a turn this week.
Sorry that the numbers this morning confirm my position. Take your dagger and plunge it deep into your left ear and tell yourself to wake the F up!
Not the shorts so much--in this case it is loud, noisy overprojecting from Evans....MHR was promoted as a 2014 winner but result have been modest--and that is being nice. Seriously, the unknowns of Utica and the disappointing recent results combined with a desperate cash situation do not spell salad days.
I have had a decent return from MHR, but I think we have hit an uncomfortable bump with no immediate way around. Selling is not necessarily the answer--however, given the direction of TPLM, KOG, AXAS and others, MHR is less attractive now. So--Upton--don't blame shorts for this one--they smell blood because MHR really is bleeding--not too seriously, but bleeding nonetheless.
I am long here--going on six years--however, obboi is right. Evans has overprojected (both in terms of media noise--diminishing returns here because he is misleading rather than leading and he is now overexposed) I held during the lawsuit phase -- but now, I am considering staging my way out. TPLM is on the move--KOG is on the move--MHR is regressive and if they produce just one more loser--could be Utica--then 2014 will already be passed.
Things must turn this week. And give me all the downward thumbs you like. If you don't like my version of the situation, go someplace else to exhaust your wrong-headed fury.
MHR would be .30 less this morning without Evans. His value to MHR is significantly greater than you credit. Your opinion is yours--no problem there--but Evans is a powerful spokesperson for MHR and is now a putative spokesperson for the Bakken babies. You can put a price on that. Now, I would agree that MHR, of late, has overprojected and underperformed. But that, in no way, discounts Evans' media and corporate value.
Take a look at TPLM results--even though some dolt just dumped 550,000 shares, today's report just validated every TPLM long position and set the company up for a run.
I don't generally attack anyone---I prefer a discussion. However, whoever did this is either stupid or just hard up for some cash. Let's hope it is the latter.
