  • Why I sold it all at $4.45
    .
    Please don't attack me. I was very bullish on PGH for a very long time but I changed my mind earlier this week. I don't know what PGH is worth but I do know that sometimes things just don't make sense. It's been said you shouldn't try to catch a falling knife. What really changed my sentiment is that I read a few articles about Bakken. Then I read a few more about the latest fracking technology. I'm convinced it's a game-changing situation for energy in North America and will impact all energy producers, especially Canadian, negatively. If you believe like I do that there's an energy boom-time going on in N Dakota and the U.S. will become the largest exporter (over Saudi Arabia), my recommendation is to get in on the peripheral industries that will profit from the boom, not the companies that sell oil and gas. The peope who got rich during the gold rush weren't the miners...they were the general stores, railroads, ranchers, etc that provided services, housing, supplies, etc to the miners. Go for certain drillers and service providers participating in the boom. They will do well. IRET is a REIT centered in the Bakken region. It's probablly not a bad idea. Some railroads like Canadian Pacific may profit, but that's a big question mark sinc ethey're losing so much coal-hauling revenue. That's where I'm planning to deploy the capital I have left from PGH. Good luck to all. I still believe if PGH bounces it will be quite a bounce. On the other hand, I wouldn't be surprised if this thing ends up a penny stock. The book value is bogus because the assets on PGH's balance sheet are losing value every day. Please don't attack my opinion. Yahoo and many participants of this discussion board value diverse opinions. I lost a lot of money on PGH but I wish all of you the best of luck.
