    It appears no one wants to buy this stock. With 14K barrels per day flowing, I can't see why others wouldn't jump on this value stock. Just doesn't seem in the cards.

    Options Chain:

    July 17, 2015 expiration: $7.50 strike has 125 call contracts open vs. 1 put contract.
    August 21, 2015 expiration: $7.50 strike has 270 call contracts open vs. 16 put contracts.

    Looks like all the bets are moving towards hitting $7.50 in the next 2 months.

    Options expiration today. Hopefully most of the shorts made their money and are either:

    1. Gone. Bye Felicia.
    2. Going long since they beat the h3ll out of PPS the last week up to options expiration date
    3. Still short and going to get the squeeze of a life time.

    Rick- you know I'm not short. Long since 2009 but I'm curious on your thoughts - you noted "miss out on more big announcements". Oyo 7 coming online was the biggest announcement we have in the 2015 horizon (since oyo8 was already announced at 7200 bbd)...and on this big announcement ERN is struggling to stay positive, much less recoup some of the 40% clip we've been hit with in the last week. If that was the big announcement, and we can barely stay in the green (much less recoup serious weekly losses) what announcement to you foresee as "big" in the future and what expectations do you have for that announcement to impact PPS.

    Based on what I've seen today, I'm very disappointed to say the least.

    Again, not short here. Just seeking some perspective for someone else on this board that has value in their posts. Thanks

  • Chris,

    Are you a shareholder personally?After a 40% fall off...are you at all concerned the pps is only up 2% on announcement of oyo 7 coming online? Seems like that announcement was our holy grail and it's worthless to the stock. Wanted to get your thoughts on this. With our holy grail busted, not much more catalyst left to push pps up...not even to get back the 40% that disappeared in a few days much less see some pps growth from the pre-40% mark.

    ---Thoughts from the board? I keep whispering to myself some big hedge fund is holding ERN back through multiplication until Monday but even I'm questioning my whispers. This week just makes no sense if the fundamentals are still intact and we're nearing 14K barrels a day. Just doesn't add up in the stock action.

    Time to make investments

    Rick - I did the same. Here's my note to Chris:


    Myself along with several others invested in CAK/ERN agree that no response to all the investigation claims, class action seekers, and negative PR is detrimental to ERN's share price upside once oyo 7 is complete and a partner is announced. This stock should be running up in anticipation of these announcements yet all the negative PR is killing pps. Even if you guys do announce production of 7 maybe we get back 10%? From a recent 7 day drop of over 30%?

    If there's nothing to be concerned about with these class action advertising law firms, why doesn't Kase say so? He needs to announce opposition to these investigations because right now it's spreading like wildfire.

    Sitting on our hands is not going to do anything. Providing the same old operational update is not going to do anything. Buying 10K shares when he owns millions is not going to do anything.

    Management needs to address these ludicrous accusations to the public to stop the bleeding.

    As a long term share holder, I even thought about getting on board with one of these class action guys to hedge my investment in ERN. And I've been here since 2009 so the fact that I'm thinking joining class action might not be such a bad idea I can only image what others are thinking.

    Please forward my message to Kase. Stop this plummeting by announcing opposition to the investigation firms in the public and providing transparency. Providing news on oyo 7 or partnership is not a counter or response to this PR that's eroding market cap by 25% in one day.

    Please do not think announcing oyo 7 or a partnership or any other news in an operational update form is a response to these recent claims. You guys have one shot at announcing oyo7 production and a partnership and to do so in the wake of all this negative PR would be a missed opportunity at a one shot value driver.

    De-bunk the claims, then press on.

    Again, please pass my message on to Kase.

    Watching the trading patterns last few days..we seem to always dip in the morning, recover in the afternoon, and take off in the last hour of trading.

    7 Trading Days

    I'd be the first one to say something if I felt or knew that something was wrong with this company. Unlike some of these short pumpers, I know that no matter what's said on this message board it will not significantly move the stock price up or down. These boards are simply a media for discussion and tips. I do my own DD and have watched this company for 6 years every day. Been on every call, talk with Chris in IR about once a quarter. It's not my intention to pump this stock as I said, it doesn't really impact PPS. But I do hope to share my thoughts and knowledge to help longs.

    Heck, I'm happy to help shorts. Shorts, get out of your short position and go long. There's your help :)

  • texasconnection2 by texasconnection2 Jun 10, 2015 11:01 AM Flag

    In 7 trading days they will announce production on oyo 7 and a partnership.

    Shorts you have 7 days to cover.
    Longs you have 7 days to load up all you can.

    In 7 days you'll go from owning a company pumping 7K barrels a day with limited capital to a company pumping 14K barrels a day with a partner sharing the risk and financial responsibility. AND they will begin making moves to start drilling in Gambia and Ghana.

    Where else can you buy shares of a company that will be double the production, revenue, and support in 7 days?

    I've been here since 2009, check my cak posts if you don't believe me. Over the years I've accumulated quite a bit of shares, cursed my fair bit at this company, and prayed for favorable changes. Those changes are now.

    Load up boys. -Tex

    Call Chris Heath at ERN. He's very approachable and straight forward about this ambulance chasing riot.

    713 797 2945

    He will explain it all to you.

    I feel bad for those who got stopped out or sold in panic. Add more here because the end of June is going to be a big BOOM.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Call IR – You guys are getting

    1. The author of the Seeking Alpha article is short ERN. He states it two times in the article. It’s a bogus article. What do you want to believe? Some tool with his own agenda to fatten his pockets or a company that’s not producing 7K a day, another 7K coming online this month, and billions in reserves?

    2. Andrews and Springer is an ambulance chaser. They watch for stocks that see a sizeable drop and pay to publish adds of their “investigation”. Notice they did not say they have a lawsuit, they said they have an investigation. That’s because they don’t have squat and it’s illegal for them to say they have a lawsuit if they don’t. Here’s how it works, these ambulance chasers PAY for press releases and try to get shareholders to call them. I called them just to see what this is about. Then they try to sell you on joining their side for a class action. The reason they do this and MARKET themselves is because they can’t do anything without shareholders on their team. So they try to swindle you into jumping on board. I’ve seen this happen time and time again to many stocks and there has NEVER actually been a lawsuit. Expect a few more ambulance chasers to jump on board.

    3. 350K shares sold premarket today. I talked to Chris at IR and he talked to his market makers. They know who dumped the shares. It was 2 individuals. These 2 individuals are related to the Alpha article and the Andrews and Springer investigation scam.

    The good news:
    ERN management, communications group, and legal counsel were meeting as I was on the phone with Chris. There will be a response to this foolery and possibly legal action on our behalf.
    Second, Oyo 8 is pumping 7K+ a day like a beast. Oyo 7 is drilled and flowing, and once they choke up to 7K+ barrels a day they will announce. Partnership is going to be announced. All this will drive the price well above $8 where we use to be.

    I’m sad to say but all you guys that sold into this scheme will miss out...

    No Lawsuit Has Been Filed

    I can't believe they can get away with doing that and manipulating the stock price like this.

    There is going to be ALOT of upset folks when they realize they were dooped and sold their shares once the market realizes this is all BS and ERN runs back up. I just added even more shares here.

  • texasconnection2 by texasconnection2 Jun 8, 2015 10:18 AM Flag

    Look at this guys "legal" website. They are a joke. I'm guessing someone was heavy short ERN and contacted this guy on a bogus "investigation" to drive the PPS down. If there were evidence to support any wrong doings, this would have been outlined by the fast freddy. Read the bottom of their ERN investigation says this may be advertising contact us on email, twitter, facebook, ect ect.. LOL What a joke

    I have half a mind to find out who's behind the BS class action and file with the SEC for investigation of manipulating share price with bogus allegations.

    not seeing other O&G exp companies down like us. I know they haven't been up like us but they haven't had the potential catalyst like us. Just seems weird to be down this much on heavy volume. Don't get me wrong, I'm buying at $6.90. Just curious if anything knows anything.

  • Feeling on the Opec meeting today seems to be pretty negative. Most O&G are down heavy. ERN is down on low volume but down none the less. Might have a few days of good buying opportunity. Anything in the $7s is a gift because 1) A partnership should be announced this month and 2) completion of oyo7 should happen in about 2 weeks. Both will be big time catalyst.

    Crude is down another 2% and market is in the red. Probably what we're seeing here. Everything I've read says expectations are crude bottoming around 57$ and operating in the $57 to $62 range up and down. We're close to the bottom so I suspect oil will rebound next week and we'll push forward through $9. Glad to see we're not down that much today (35 cents) with a 3+% drop in crude over the last 48 hours, negative market, and profit taking. Looks like there's a lot of folks who feel they will miss the BIG show if they sell out now. I'm one of them!

    Tons of action this morning drove the price up to just about $9. Wish I would have added more at 7. I should probably add her before I'm saying wish I would have added more at $9.
