    DO Rising 8% Today--- Why??

    Possibly L is acquiring additional shares. Start a rumor (I really did hear it...as a rumor) that L could take DO private. Would that be a stock blessing and get me out of this major POS!

    You spelled it wrong buthead (spelled incorrectly to get through censor). You mean Good Bye. $7.75 would be even a better buy...why not wait for that or $3.50 nosepickerbrainbreathputz!

    Where to buy?

    Still an unknown when they'll be registered. After speaking to company representative, more confused than ever. The designation makes sense between A and B shares. The final outcome is confusing to me. sorry.

  • peepill by peepill Nov 19, 2014 1:03 PM Flag

    It appears all the 'insiders' aka hedge funds own the "A" stock which appears to be valued at a $3.50 per share cost. When the A starts to trade, the B stock (currently trading) will be increased by several times by groups owning multi million share positions. It appears that a holder of 50 million shares (there appear to be several) would have a $25 million profit selling the stock at $4.00.
    1). Any knowledgeable discussion of my simpleton evaluation?
    2). Why would anyone (with any financial sophistication) buy this stock for more than hundreds of million shares owned by hedgies who are in at $3.50 or less and helped destroy the pre bankruptcy company?

    I fukaktaed OSG riding the sukka from $30 + all the way into Chapter; so, why would this highly leveraged company work this time around with oil tanking (luv the puns).

    85.65 book value for 73 and change.

    One just has to look at RIG. Book value is B.S. RIG just wrote off over one billion dollars of book value. An accounting item known as "mark to market". This is not a critique of your buy sentiment...I don't know what to do; but, kiss off book! good luck.

    I'm long. I'm doodling in my diapers. It appears that OPEC, speculators and the Saudis are manipulating the price of oil to slow North American production. I did not see an end to the top and have no frigging idea where the low is; however, something, somewhere, somehow will lift oil at some future date.e.g. Israel bombs Iran, Obama wakes up and realizes he ain't doing shissen to dissuade ISIS and it is this group that is challenging us, not global warming!, Japan catches fire economically, the Europeans pull their collective heads out of their #$%$ and turn their economies around. I AM HOLDING and at some point will add to PTEN and NBR. Book value means nothing at this point so I don't see these guys as necessarily 'cheap'. They're making money and have a positive cash flow. Like the offshore drillers, they'll have to 'stack'. Goldman was talking $140 oil six months ago and has no more idea where it's going than anyone on this board (excepting me the mushroom ((everyone keeps me in the dark and feeds me nothing buy bull sheissen)))
    Good hunting and luck to you contributors. Your ideas help me. later.

    I remember when the Japanese companies specialized in knockoff and high end technology. The camera specialists at CAJ let a start-up like GoPro eat their sushi! I bet on the wrong stumble bums at CAJ listening to them bictch and moan how the camera market has lost momentum to iPad etc cameras and letting HP be the first major to produce 3-D print/manufacturing. The Korean automakers have knocked Japan off and other countries have taken back entertainment/cameras (one only has to look at Sony, which used to be the WORD in quality and innovation).
    This is NOT bash the Asian/Japanese; but, my view as a shareholder of CAJ and HMC who is #$%$ at himself for choosing these 'quality' companies. I list CAJ as a Hold as in bagholder hold.

    Their main product in their home country is such a GFU, that management has agreed to voluntarily take pay cuts (something we Americans should add to our culture). They make an excellent product; but, let their flagship in Japan become a nightmare. Next: Honda made a decision to minimize models and concentrate on eventually becoming the electric car of the future. 'How's that going' with gas under $3.00 and Tesla on the high end, While Toyota, Ford and GM add models, Honda is still pushing the Pilot (I like it) which is getting average ratings from most Auto Mags. Either they should go back to basics (build the best product in the most popular models) or shake things up with more SUV and Trucks. The same old, same old is getting same old.

    First, I told you! Second, Which dumb Schiesser rated the message negative. They have the acumen of a 4 year old child and I'm sure their portfolio would be better selected by Bird droppings on a WSJ stock quote list.
    You Duyfas! Leave the market and look for prime land in the dessert.

  • Even doodoo floats and would be up today. The earnings and prognosis must be awful! This product is a lock.

    they're not crooked

    Well thought out and well said. Thank you. My point revolves around what is available to every publically traded corporation. i.e: They control the salary and bonus committee. The board (controlled) votes to provide themselves stock options. These options are exercised at a cost of $0.00 in non open market transactions then sold in the open market to schmuucks like me at market prices and create a tremendous overhead of shares. The insiders make 1,000+% return on their INVESTMENT (which is ZERO). FIG is an example of a company that would never go private because they would lose the imbeciles like you and I who have bought up their shares and created more wealth for them. Shame on Them. They are pigs and we have been slaughtered. Good luck to you and other longs (me included); although, good luck is NOT a great stock buying strategy.

  • I have been in and out of this stock over the years. It appears to me that FIG is a vehicle for the insiders to financially rape the company to the benefit of the mufti-billionaires who control it...and under current federal law and SEC rules & regulations is Legal!!! Only in America. These guys vote themselves incredible salaries, bonuses, stock options at zero dollar cost, and expense reimbursement that would not meet IRS regulations were you or I to take same. These guys are Bernie Madoff to their shareholders and explains to this writer why the POS is less than 1/2 its value since going public years ago. This is NOT Blackrock...but, feels like blue balls to this dumb sheiss investor. Greed...beyond belief and what any capitalist would consider moral. FOK them! Should these sons or unmarried women wish to address me personally, I hereby give Yahoo permission to have their attorneys contact me! Truth is not slander.
