    yahoo msg board short brigade has no shame. these guys are paid to say ANYTHING to inspire the uninformed to panic sell. the give-away for the racket they're engaged in is the ridiculously low price target they always attach at the end of their msg.
    I remember when AAPL was getting destroyed and had been beaten down to around $365 (about as low as it went), the paid bashers on the msg board were all calling for 200.

    A lot of people were shorting this when it started running up from 12, expecting a pullback somewhere along the way. some thought based on technicals it would pull back to around 12.50, so they kept holding their short. now they're all trapped. guess they aren't too happy right now.

  • newpikachu newpikachu Jul 12, 2014 7:32 AM Flag

    Livermore seems like a good reference to me. He went broke because he took huge short positions expecting a price collapse that didn't come, or being unprepared for rebounds that occured. Late comers to the short trade in MCP, who were lured in by Shock Exchange to take outsized short positions they now need to cover, can learn a good lesson from Jesse, since they are likely to go broke themselves if they don't cover in a hurry. At least Jesse had the foresight to leave his wife 5 million in an irrevocable trust. I don't think the shorts who entered MCP at 3 believing bankruptcy was a foregone conclusion are going to have that luxury. The most they're gonna be able to do is leave their wives Shock Exchange's address and phone number. Probably won't be more than a year before stocks collapse and a new commodity boom begins. How many of those shorting mining companies are prepared for the change that be a comin?

    Short Squeeze

    very funny there, guy. big money often loses, and often it loses BIG. Ever heard of LTCM? You might also want to make a list of all the hedge fund managers who have gone bust or are now behind bars.

    The way you paint it, the shorts in this stock should all be wearing Superman suits. But even Superman has his weakness. Kryptonite, remember? Don't know if they are mining that yet in Nevada though.

    Sounds to me like you made a big mistake and shorted when ANV recently couldn't hold four, thinking it would plunge back to three. Real bad move on your part. Just cover as soon as you can on Monday and you won't need to worry anymore, or spread false rumors on this msg board about shorts "taking over the mine" lol.. funniest thing I've heard in ages, by the way.

    puts a real funny picture in my head of a bunch of bankrupt short sellers standing around a big open pit with their arms crossed.

    Buffet quietly loaded up

    newpikachu newpikachu Jul 12, 2014 7:00 AM Flag

    not true, typical yahoo msg board nonsense.

    buffet is loading up energy plays however and has made purchases of companies in the past which require optimism about coal.
    buffet is probably a believer in coal's come back and can appreciate the low valuations of related companies, but so far as I know commodities plays are not his thing; and he is not the kind of value investor who buys "distress." In his early days he did buy distress, what he called "cigar butts." He made a heap of money that way. But now he's made his fortune and he is much more choosy about what he buys. He looks for the lowest risk values possible.

    A commodities bull said in 2011: "The run-up in commodities prices has been a long one. And it shows no signs of abating."

    The key phrase is: "shows no signs of abating."

    So now the commodities (coal, in this case) bears are in control (or so they think.).

    You can hear them saying: "The down trend in coal prices has been a long one. And it shows no signs of abating."

    The key phrase is: "shows no signs of abating"

    take your positions in accordance with your understanding. good luck.

  • anyone else noticed the number of messages recently by posters claiming they bought MCP at a very high price and continued buying all the way down and just sold for a huge loss?
    I doubt the authenticity of these messages, because the whole "I sold low and lost all my money on this stock" is classic soft bashing technique intended to remind potential buyers of how far a stock has fallen from its highs and fill them with fear it will go even lower.
    All I can say is I hope no one else falls for that. If you are an investor who truly did buy high and are down 70% or more on your investment, why would sell now at the point of maximum pessimism? All the more reason to be patient. Add to your position with cheap OTM 2016 calls if you don't have enough money to average down here but you still want to be able to participate in potential upside over the next few years.
    Investors who bought MCP high and are tempted to sell low need to study up on the cyclical nature of the mining business. Educate yourselves before you do anything rash and realize a massive loss. All the educational material you need to understand how this business works is readily available if you search for it.

    Here's a quick lesson: pull up an ANV chart.

    In October 2008 ANV was trading for $1.87

    Now fast forward to April 2011: ANV is trading for $43

    See the difference 3 years can make? In 2008 the ANV msg board was a lot like the MCP msg board in recent times. The same cast of characters, bashers, slanderers of management, proclaimers of bankruptcy.

    Feel to scared to hang on to your MCP shares at these levels? Relax. Turn off your computer. Stop checking daily prices. Come back in three years. We'll talk more then!

    give Shock Exchange credit

    newpikachu newpikachu Jul 11, 2014 12:31 AM Flag

    he wasn't trying to nail the bottom. if you saw the massive amount of covering/buying that was automatically triggered at 1.61 you will understand quite well why he kept beating "worth $1.60" like a dead horse.
    pretty sad that this can happen. and the evidence of his exploit is all out in the light of day for everyone to see, but will anything be done about it?

    credit for what, defrauding the investment community with a relentless manipulation campaign on SA?

    Everyone knows that SA is the chosen vehicle of a select group of pumpers and bashers promoting their agenda, but never in all my time of reading that rag have I ever seen someone so shamelessly attempt to destroy a company's reputation.

    I don't think the guy needs any credit. If we were to give him credit, it would have to be credit in form of a prison sentence. I'm sure he's quite content with all the money he made on the short side, and is going to make on the long side. But he should be even more content if he escapes spending any time in a cell for this stunt.

    I think it's time for Mr SE to watch The Wolf of Wall Street. Maybe he'll draw enough of a moral lesson from the movie to stop while he's ahead.

    You can get away with this kind of fraud for awhile, even for a long time, but not forever.

    nearly 1% down and the market hasn't even opened. When was the last time we had a similar percentage decline before open? I can't remember but it seems like forever.

    Can't believe some posters here are saying premarket doesn't matter. It's not about the time of the decline but the percentage of the move.

  • newpikachu newpikachu Jul 10, 2014 12:02 AM Flag

    valid points; and of course the future can't be known. however risk/reward here is highly skewed toward reward, with WLT trading 50% below book and an awareness that we are somewhere deep into the low part of the cycle, even if no one knows just where and when the coal rebound will commence in earnest. the big short money has already been made by those who had the foresight, and those players are long out of WLT for a huge profit. Kudos to them for taking the risk. But to take the risk of the short trade here is just plain foolish. Even if I was among those who seem convinced WLT is headed for zero (which I am not) I would still think it more prudent to open a long position at these levels; however would hedge it with a large number of OTM puts.

    Even the most conservative appraiser would not call WFM over-valued at this price, so the authoritative tone of your claim makes it seem all the more silly. Sounds like you need to ask your employer for a better angle for your soft bashing posts. In the unlikely event that you are really an investor, you need to get out your spreadsheets out and go back to square one. maybe you could contact someone at a firm who actually does appraisals and pay him for a bit of his time. this might help you o come up with a more accurate estimate. he may not have time for you though; at these prices he is probably too busy buying all the WFM he can and won't welcome your competition on the bid.

  • newpikachu newpikachu Jul 3, 2014 11:02 PM Flag

    What does that even mean, that WFM is an attractive takeover candidate at this price? You do realize that if WFM were bought out it would not be at this price, right? but much higher?
    What determines the price at which a stock is bought out are valuation considerations and shareholder interests, not the price at which a stock happens to be trading on any given day due to market fluctuations

    So, in retrospect, how do you feel about having exited ANV on a day when it closed at 2.76? Do you still feel like exiting at the bottom was a good move? Inquiring minds want to know.

  • newpikachu by newpikachu Jul 3, 2014 2:51 AM Flag

    really feels like we are at or near the point of maximum pessimism for MCP.

    Price has been absolutely collapsing on no news. Looks like most longs have become hopeless and jumped ship, while shorts are literally foaming at the mouth like mad dogs. They have gone beyond greedy to the point of gloating.

    I like the recent large purchases by the CEO at 2.76 and 2.77. His yearly salary is about 400k and in May he bought about 200k worth of stock. So he has reinvested half his salary in the company at a time when many outsiders are aggressively gloating over the company's imminent demise (per their own predictions, which are underpinned, one imagines, by fairly substantial short positions).

    I am particularly curious about Molibendos large ownership stake in this company. They have continued adding to an already gigantic position all the way down and their purchase price is far above the price where we sit today.

    So now bears are saying MCP bankruptcy is a 100% certainty. Would anyone like to discuss how Molibendos' large stake in MCP relates to the predicated claims of bankruptcy? If MCP is the completely worthless trash which bears portray it as, and if longs have been correct to abandon their positions and jump ship in the recent panic sales which have decimated the stock price, why it is that Molibendos patiently continues to accumulate large quantities of shares?

    Please discuss.

    As for myself I will be taking a large position in MCP tomorrow. Not too concerned about what happens near term. I'm going to be holding with a 2-3 year time frame on this one.
