    The S**T has Hit the Fan

    Add me as your co-conspiracy theorist. Add Iran as the other bird killed with that one stone too. I think there's more than just politics in this though. A million bbl/day production over usage currently. Looks to approach 2 million bbl in 2015, before decreasing. When/if the world economy picks up, and that glut disappears, look for increases as rapid as the decreases were. My main conspiracy theory caveat ............ near term, rapid rise, bordering price shock, as it's too easy for Russia, or Iran, to take out a major Saudi oil facility, and make it look like ISIS did it. You want to be long US shale production, and SDRL, should this come to pass.

    Would've needed an existing buy order to catch $20. It crashed through that faster than a falling brick. Ironically, I see SDRL as a buy now. At $11.06, how much more can it fall ? I expect to take some nibbles back in, in the near future, for a long term hold. Hopefully SDRL has a long term.

    You know, popular wisdom has splits being of no great use. That being said, I sure like it when my shares / units do a split. I'll take 2 or 3 times as many units of ETP, any time they're ready !!

    I'm pretty good with my new distribution shares at an almost $6 / unit discount (to today's rally price). Just like the Crimson Tide ....... Roll ETP Roll !!

    It's all about building blocks for the future. A future where the US exports LNG, and nat gas seldom dips below $5. If you believe in this future, and I do, VNR has a very bright future, even if it has to lower the distribution in 2015 (to .18), and the unit price tanks to $20. All possibilities. In this scenario, by 2018, the distribution would still exceed the current .21, and the unit price would be $35+. Keep in mind too, that mgmt. is loathe to ever drop the dist., and hopefully the accretive acquisitions really are accretive, and help VNR fully fund dist's, in the immediate future. Long VNR, and staying that way. Good luck to us all ! . . . . . Well, except if you're short, sorry.

    BACK UP THE TRUCK!

    It's starting to look like that same $$ amount may fill a 2x larger truck in about 4 weeks. Even if the talking heads are all wrong, they do tend to move the market.

    Sentiment: Hold

    The most recent time I held SDRL (2014), I had bought at $39.10, held through a steep fall, 2 dividends, and slow rise back up, then sold at $39.76. I believe it peaked after that, at 41'ish, I missed that last bit up.
    The other time I held SDRL, I bought at $39.20 (2013), held through an upturn, I believe 3 dividends, and sold at $47 something. Also missing the rest of the peak, but for me, honestly, some of my best timing.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • paintedblk paintedblk Sep 11, 2014 12:14 PM Flag

    $400 / 100 shares. Sounds good. Even better $4000 / 1000 shares !!! It just keeps getting better with zeroes ! But to me, it just seems so much simpler and safer to extract the juice from shale. I have SDRL marked as a Hold, but it's a weak hold, kind of reflecting having, possibly, missed the boat already. I managed to sell my SDRL at $39.76, not very long ago, and am here to read the current comments. I'm not short, I'm not long, I'm just here to read. I'm neutral on the whole thing, but suspect the down draft will continue. It'll surely go south quick should they touch that dividend.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • FFO down. Share price down. Sigh. Still holding, and accumulating (only) with my dividend re-investments. But sometimes I really feel like a glutton for punishment. I keep hearing of exorbitant motel rates around the Bakken oil fields. Is other realty not following suit ?

    Sentiment: Hold

    1st MEMP position, started today.

    paintedblk paintedblk Sep 5, 2014 2:55 PM Flag

    Thanks Rodrick, sorry, but not exactly sure what you meant, I'm mostly verse, in my own finances. My main tax deferred retirement account, is my Simplified Employee Pension - IRA (SEP-IRA). It's the best you can do for yourself, when you're self-employed. I opened that account in 1993.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • Hello fellow longs ! MEMP was already on my radar, for the July unit offering. I was fully invested though, and missed the opportunity. I was more ready this time. I still had some liquidity from selling out my KMI / KMP.
    So I initiated 2 positions of MEMP on today's offering. In my SEP-IRA, a small chunk, at $22.19 , and in a taxable account, 3x as much, at $22.33 . My biggest holdings are LINE/LNCO , BBEP, and ETP. MEMP is a bit further down. My current thinking has upstream being a better long term holding, than mid stream. As we're 1 significant geo-political event from $110+/barrel, and I'm still not convinced the shale revolution is going to be long, highly producing enough, for the new pipelines being built. If they deplete quicker than projected, like quite a few are saying, KMI could be in for trouble by 2020. End ramble here. Best of luck to all MEMP longs, and to MEMP shorts, well, you can pay my distributions, and hopefully lose some serious $$.

    On the left side of your keyboard, is the Caps Lock. It's a good key. Especially if you unlock it, so your posts, and then your replies to your own posts, don't seem like a psychopath screaming at passersby on the street.
    Besides that, I pretty much agree with you, but I don't believe the march to $15 will be all that quick, or even straight.

    Surely will do. I keep adding on dips too. BBEP is a very solid company, and (nominally) my 2nd largest holding. It keeps fluctuating 2 or 3 with ETP. The LINE/LNCO combo is, by a pretty lot, my biggest holding.

    The Kaiser still wets his bed, which is actually his mom's couch, put in the basement of her house, where he lives. Women won't talk to, or even acknowledge him, and his dog keeps peeing on the couch too, to cover the loser's pee scent. Not that I harbor any bad feelings towards him.

    I was thinking the 37 range would be my time to buy back with (most of) the funds from selling last week, at $41.10. Low 30's forecast has me pondering. Moving down, consistently, while the S & P, and particularly, energy, has moved north, these last few days, really does show a pattern here.

    Sentiment: Hold

    WTI-Brent Spread Does Not Apply to CVRR

    by barebuttbob2015 Aug 15, 2014 1:41 AM
    paintedblk paintedblk Aug 25, 2014 5:58 PM Flag

    Now, I'm not claiming to be in your elite IQ group, and I could certainly be wrong, but I always understood it that ...... CVRR refines the cheaper WTI oil, but gets the slight advantage of competing with refiners that can only refine the heavier mid-east oil, which is price based on, the more expensive brent. Also, CVRR's 'Buffett type moat" is the extremely high start up cost, and ridiculously difficult regulatory hurdles in this industry. I'm long CVRR, but it's not a huge holding, as I can't fully wrap my head around all the moving parts , and challenges.

    Cramer Says Buy

    If ETP follows KMI's lead, which made me a lot of money 2 weeks ago, there won't be an ETP anymore, it'll be just ETE. I did however, up my position in ETP last week, with some of the proceeds from selling all my KMI. ETP is now my 2nd largest holding, (pretty far) behind the LINE/LNCO combo. BBEP is a close 3rd. ETP is a solid company, making solid moves, with a bright future.
