I've read studies that put clean up costs for off shore spills at $5000 per barrel. Even if the costs were a hundred times greater, it could be only $25 million in costs..........the biggest problem would be the government extracting money in fines and unnecessary new regulations.
For all the hoopla about streaming, DVD rentals still account for half the meager profits........so the hottest stock ever has half its profits in a dying buggy whip business. Some people will be too lazy to cancel their DVD subscriptions but eventually most people will. At some point does Netflix have an obligation to let people know that they haven't order a DVD mail service for a year or so and should downgrade their service?
With the new shares being issued, there will be a total of 10 million shares outstanding which doesn't seem like a big deal. Given the share issuance is to buy new equipment and expansion, it seems like a good idea. At this point, Orchids is still in the paper business versus the stock issuance business.
