  • The only reason this was up today was because of short covering; But it feels as though most shorts may have already covered. If so I truly believe this will go back under a dollar. Remember an analyst downgrade yesterday wit h price target of 0.75..

    sorry to disappoint you but EXXI's average income per barrel of WTI oil today was over $70 per barrel because they had the foresight to hedge their oil for all of 2015. They also have over $650 million in cash and credit to tap into should they need more cash which is very unlikely as their current cost per barrel is only $50 which still leaves them $20 per barrel of net profit for this whole year. Of course everybody expects the costs per barrel for most companies drop this year significantly because of the leverage companies have as the oil prices have been cut in half but also because of new lower cost and speedier technologies expected for this year.

    Frankly, I can't think of another energy related company that is so strong and yet the stock is been sunk with all boats. But like somebody had said the market can over-react in short term but will set things right in the long term. If I was you (and I am saying this in all honesty and after looking into hundreds of energy companies over the past several months and spending a few hours every single day) I would load up with EXXI as their is not another single energy company out there with as much potential of rewarding you and yet with solid financials despite their recent acquisition which some are concerned about but in the long term is going to be their best asset.

    Thank you so much for the excerpts from EXXI's corporate presentation; This makes me 1000% better about holding onto my exxi shares and may be even add to them; I had no idea that the company had the foresight to hedge 60% of the production at $84/Bbl;
    That means at today's closing price for wti of $47.93 the actual average income to EXXI for each barrel of their oil is:

    0.6 x $84 + 0.4 x $47.93 = $69.57.....Or almost $70/Bbl ...That is right: in today's wti of $47.93 EXXI actually obtains an average of $70 per barrel for the rest of 2015 ...

    Even if the wti price drops to $40 the actual income to EXXI per barrel of their oil will be:

    0.6 x $84 + 0.4 x $40 = $66.40

    That is still above around $50/Bbl cost associated with each barrel from gulf of Mexico for last year which can be improved upon dramatically now that oil is corrected. But even with no lowering of costs at all EXXI will still make a profit far above what it needs to make payments for its debt even if it decides to use zero amount from their rather large $646 million dollar in combo cash and credit line.

    In my humble opinion EXXI is dirt cheap and a very safe investment at current pps and I would strongly and in good conscious would recommend it to anyone ...

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • A very distinct possibility,,,Oil stocks cheapest in the market and in years, window dressing and tax selling over as is the holidays. Folks coming back have to buy with all that selling money and they be looking for bargains. My guess is that energy and oil stock are going to be looking very enticing; Lets just watch and see...

  • This is great news folks because it will open the WORLD oil markets to US companies such as EXXI...

  • Analysts expected profits of only $65 million (with an M) but NBG's profits came at $125 Billion (with a B). The report needs to look at more carefully as it includes some tax deferred assets but no matter how you look at it NBG is a major winner and will be heading much higher from here ...This is an extraordinarily great earning report folks. We should be getting upgrades....

    BBC: Chinese Premier In Greece signs MJOR DEALS

    naftali_tech naftali_tech Jun 21, 2014 11:37 PM Flag

    should see at least 4.50 or higher this coming week. This will be a major boast to Greece's economy and help the unemployment rate.

    But more importantly this is a seal of approval from second largest world economy that Greece is turned the corner ...That is why Chinese Premier is in Greece now but not last year or the year before, etc

    Of course shorts are going to try to place a negative twist on such a major positive event for Greece as they do on any good news for any stock they are shorting. and that is why we call them twisted shorties!!! LOL!

    could you cut and paste the article is you are a Barron subscriber...The tille of the article indicates Barron to be very positive on NBG and even directly advising readers to put "cash" into buying shares.

    Sentiment: Buy

    Hey hey hey...That is second upgrade in as many days; first Nomura took the unusual step of a DOUBLE upgrade jumping from reduce all the way to BUY (bypassing hold)... and now the all important Deutshe Bank upgrading today...This on top of all recent upgrades...I agree we may see 10 soon as NBG tends to fly at times (just look at last April 2013 and how it jumped from low 3's to over 24 in a matter of days...Once markets smell the future being set in uptrend it will fly in a blink of an eye.

    NBG June will Bring 5.50 & July end around 7 ...

    5.50 will not even get NBG back to where it was in April (5.70 is). Once we clear 5.70 and fills all the gaps since April, hopefully by June, it is all clear for take off.

    That is exactly why it is called climbing a wall of worry!!!

  • “The share offering was substantially oversubscribed, confirming a strong interest by institutional investors in National Bank,” announced NBG

    Just Think about it : offering was oversubscribed e over THREE times; Translation: While nearly 1 billion shares were sold at just above $3/share there were others willing to buy another TWO BILLION shares. I would think that many of those folks who did not get in at $3 will most likely won't mind getting in at today's price or even higher depending on what their research had shown; Another 2 billion shares at 3 would be 6 billion but at todays price or say $4-5 you be having nearly $10 BILLION DOLLARS chasing after NBG shares.

    In addition many of those who successfully bought at $3 most likely will try to add to those shares even if their average goes up to say $4 or more. The higher the price goes the more this group will be enticed to add.

    And yet with government's ownership suddenly dropped to %57 from %84 and with additional 1.3 Billion of the preferred shares being bought back from the greek government from this newly raised funds all of the above investors will begin resetting their calculators and do new assessments and will soon figure out the if NBG was worth $3/share last week it is now worth much more and even $5 or $6 or $7 may be too conservative.

    But also lets don't gorget the this new fund raising added about a couple of BILLION dollars to NBG's cash hoard of nearly $15 BILLION.

    Finally with Greece's economy on the mend and with NBG less and less controlled by the government and more and more in the private hands now only the above mentioned big investors but also the retail investors will pile on simply by anticipating the future.

    Last year this time NBG suddenly zoomed from a lower share price than today's to nearly $24/share So the potential is there but this time because of the above mentioned reasons I won't be surprised if it zooms past the $24. (NBG: #1 Greece bank established in 1841).

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    sorry Buch; I had not seen your post. I simply copied and pasted that article. If you copy and paste it on google you should find it.

  • I have a nag for calling the bottoms and despite price offering rumors, etc I am calling today's 3.53 the bottom. I am also predicting that we be about a buck higher than this bottom in a month's time and will go higher from there and will NEVER EVER look back.

    to the top. Completely agree. He is a manipulating fraud and a paid basher. I have been visiting this board occasionally and everytime I leave for awhile because Red_tsar makes me want to puke. It is sad in this life we have blood sucking bums that go around making money out of defrauding others. The problem is that not many people stand up to criminals like Red_tsar and his multiple names. Of course people like him are creeps that create new aliases once exposed and it is next to impossible to stop them.

  • naftali_tech naftali_tech Apr 22, 2014 1:40 PM Flag

    I 100% agree; After it is done NBG will have more credibility for having been able to pull it off for the first time in 5 years, would be more independent from the government, will have less warrants out there, and will have more money.

    Obviously people confused usual fund raising by issuing shares by other companies who do it to pay down debt or pay for expenses. Not NBG. Above mentioned benefits where not a single penny is spent on expenses or paying debt but rather all collected funds are used to increase the value of the company in one way or another.

    No way the shares deserved to get a hair cut. The should have and will eventually go up.

    Someone had said $25 by the end of the year. I 100% agree.
