HNR has literally been trying to sell the VZ assets for 4 years and every attempt has failed. If HNR actually still owned the assets one of these attempts would have close. The HNR mgmt. team is so crooked that they have put out fake press releases in the past announcing fake deals to sell the VZ assets, only to do dilutive equity raises in the days following. Check out the SEC filings from Sept 2013. I promise you this is an old story that always ends in tears for the new hot/greedy money that gets involved.
You are deluding yourself, friend. If Maduro wants to raise money, he'll just sell the HNR stake to someone else and keep the money for VZ without giving HNR anything.
Writing a check to HNR does not help his country's finances. This nationalization happened years ago. I've seen this HNR story recycled many times....there is literally nothing new here. At some point in the next week, this stock is going to open the day -10% and then all the momentum and quant trading will disappear and it will quickly drop down to where it was a few days ago ($0.50 - $0.75 range).
Seeking alpha published a very good explanation of this hoax in the fall of 2013. You should go back and read it.
I love it, same story....new suckers. The assets in VZ were nationalized years ago. I was short this stock hen it was trading over $5 per share because all the geniuses on this message board were certain HNR could sell their stake. The assets were entirely nationalized under Chavez, which is why four different attempts to sell them have failed. The country of Venezuela is bankrupt (and communist) there is zero chance they are going to write a check in USD to 5 dreamers/goofballs/crooks sitting in Class B office space in Houston (i.e. HNR mgmt.)
Feel free to trade this thing intraday but there is 100% certainty the stock is worth $0 per share in the long-run. This is an old story that is just getting recycled again with new suckers with fast money.
The dividend cut, shutting down capacity, cutting CAPEX....these are all tough decisions that need to be made in order to protect the equity during a rough period for the energy industry. Obviously current financial results will be bad as business has dried up but this management team has proven that they will do whatever is necessary to protect the equity. The big insider ownership and recent buying are great signs their incentives are aligned with shareholders. Clearly going thru a tough time right now but I think if you tuck this one away for a few years you're going to earn 2x return.
Very nice Q2 earnings just released. DYSL earned EPS of $.02 vs EPS loss last yr. Expenses are down across the board. The balance sheet is now fully repaired and the company is no longer in default. I'd expect this stock be revalued higher over the next several weeks as the market prices in this good news. Seeking Alpha price target of $3 seems fair.
Tremendous report out of RT today. The new mgmt. team is clearly turning this ship around. Both revenue and EPS beat Street estimates. Same store sales were better than expected (-1.9% vs. -4% guidance). Bad weather impacted same store sales by 1.50%....assuming normal weather same store sales would have been almost flat. Same stores sales improved throughout the quarter and Q4 should be even better with guidance for Q4 was better than prior guidance.
RT has done a good job taking expenses out of the business and closing bad locations. Operating margins should expand greatly in Q4. All talk about the debt covenants is now officially dead. RT stock is back from the dead.
I did but I also modeled out the guidance for 2014 and don't see how they won't trip the covenant as it steps down. What in particular gives you confidence other than mgmt. just saying "we'll be fine"?
I honestly want to buy this stock but this is keeping me on the fence.
On the sidelines here but thinking about buying. The reason for pause is that MRGE looks destined to trip its debt covenant in 2014. Can anyone refute this conclusion?
I'm all ears, I just don't see how the company won't violate this covenant.
This thing is getting close to the tipping point with how much debt it has. Debt to EBITDA is almost 7x even assuming mgmt.'s crazy adjusted EBITDA figure.
With interest rates going up across the board, hard to see how they can refi at a better rate since their credit quality is worse now
I love the quotes about mob mentality at the beginning of his article....so true in cult stocks like this.
Once the shine wears off (like right now) you'll see everyone scatter.
I have to imagine some quant funds have bought millions of shares over the past three days. Interesting to see how they unwind it now that the momentum has turned.
Wrong jack@ss, put in a limit at $7.30 at got filled. I'd email you a screenshot but I'm not sure the public library computer you're using can receive incoming email.
I've got additional orders at $7.35 and every $.05 bump until $8.
And yes, if you think PLUG is going to announce a deal with Tesla on live TV in the middle of the trading day then you are very, very naïve
The highs are in for the day (maybe for all-time). This hype machine has no real foundation. It's actually making me sad to read these naïve comments.
"Big announcement coming on live tv"......that's not the way the world works. Material news is transmitted to the market via SEC filings, not cable news shows. You're all going to lose a lot of money. And then you're going to look for someone to blame. How about blaming your own greed.....
An online food review of Ruby Tues went viral thanks to the Today Show Food reporter. Yahoo doesn't let me post the link but you can see it at the Today Show website.
This is definitely good PR and free advertising for RT.
Dear Warren Commission,
The PUCO report was published on Nov 13th. See the EGAS filing about their 10-Q delay which is quoted below and at the begining of this chain. I owned this stock until I read that report.
"On November 13, 2013, the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio issued an Opinion and Order (the “Order”), related to the gas cost recovery cases involving Northeast Ohio Natural Gas Corp."
