    Oil prices surge after Saudi air strikes in Yemen

    Reagan was lucky he took over when things were in such a mess after Carter and had to get better. (Kinda like when BO took over). Bush was a kucklehead, who made a colossal blunder invading Iraq. But to blame EVERYTHING on him and continue to do so, after 6+ yrs of Obama, is as silly as giving Clinton credit for everything that (maybe) went better under him.

    So yes, IMO what goes on during the terms of all the BS politicians, we somehow continue to elect, is in large measure happenstance. Pretty sad that all of them are as "good" as we can do and that definitely includes Hillary, waiting in the wings.

    Practically all the good-paying jobs created were in the oil and gas (fracking) industry which BO has mostly opposed since day 1. Now he's benefiting from the oil and gasoline price crash that he had nothing to do with that's made people (at least temporarily) feel better off. Of course, already at the expense of some of the high paying energy jobs.

    Clinton got credit for shrinking the deficit, due to the budget the Pub Congress forced on him and benefited from the high tech bubble, which he had nothing to do with (which didn't end well), plus he got out of office right before 911, the seeds of which were growing during his entire administration.

    As someone once said, "Better to be lucky than smart".

    Seems it could well have something to do with it, though about an 11% dilution plus more if the .14 warrants get exercised, doesn't seem like horrendous dilution. The present price of the stock (where it seems to be stuck) is just about what the new stock (special warrant) is priced, giving no value to the (additional) warrant. Be nice if they'd offered existing stockholders the same deal.

    Also be nice if they gave an update on the status of the offering. If they're not getting any takers at what amounts to a discount of the value of the additional warrants, that doesn't speak well for the market's assessment of the company's value and prospects.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • IMO the market is still saying, after all these years, enough with the favorable tests and happy talk. "Show me the lithium production" or at least the financing for the plant.

    To me it's more like the market has "lost interest", just doesn't seem to give a rip what enzr "says". Now if something really happened...

    Selling LINE and Buying LNCO

    Some genius... LOL. I've traded the spread from 2+ to less than even up, twice in the last 9 mos and will probably try it the 3rd time. If you want to "bet against" it, why don't you put on the spread the other way and see how fast you can lose your money.

    Doubt you'd recognize a "straight skinny", if she slapped you in the face.

    I have owned TICC for over 7 years.

    I've owned this for 5 yrs and have added, most recently at $7.26. Didn't see this big a drop coming, but its persistent weakens, should have been a warning someone knew something that wasn't apparent, at least not to me. Thought the drop after the dividend cut might have been the bottom, so find today's big break, pretty discouraging.

    Unfortunately the "bottom line" remains, the company continues to shrink not grow, with no catalyst to reverse that now long term trend in sight.

    "the market is not calculating the company fairly"

    Anyone who has been in this stock for any length of time would argue the market has consistently undervalued the company. If you think it's undervalued now, how about a couple of years ago, when it was under $4?

    He sold at 50 cents or less the day before it jumped 5 cents and it went up every day after that til today. And, that's your definition of the right time to sell ;-)?

    I read his first post on SA predicting a big up-move in TICC and it seemed he'd put some thought/analysis into it. Faced with that analysis apparently being completely off base, he reveres and goes completely doom & gloom, predicting a big drop in the stock. Now that appears to be equally off-base.

    So instead of seeming to learn from his miscalculations, having a bit of humility, he gives no indication of either. Have to admit those who pooh pooh him seem to have been correct. I was lucky enough taking his first analysis into some account, hasn't hurt me... so far.

    Can understand your frustration, been there with other start-ups. But after all your watching and commenting, you sure picked the wrong time to sell. If you really did sell out, maybe time to look at other stocks, quit aggravating yourself if it keeps going up.

    Not much to cheer about, but somewhat encouraging that even with the ugly report and dividend cut, so far it's managed to hold its old low.

    Hope you're right with all your enthusiasm/bullishness, as I've been long a loonngg time. But had to smile, when you said " WLCDF goals are surely all up hill from here". Sincerely hope not, because as far as I'm concerned, they've already had far to long and difficult an "uphill" battle already.

    Seems the market must think there's nothing exciting about the companies remaining in their portfolio and their evaluation to get a $24.50 NAV was horsepucky.

    Wondering what took it down, other than someone decided unload a lot. It absorbed some big blocks in the morning OK, but the price gave way when some more big blocks hit in the afternoon.

    FTR has now become one of the the biggest % winners in my IRA, after being the biggest loser 3 yrs go, not even counting the dividends. Maybe more luck than brains, but averaging down a few times paid off... at least as of today.
