The biggest global emission of methane is from the Tundra areas of the Northern Hemisphere. The methane emissions from oil and gas production far exceeds those from cattle by an order of magnitude that is in the millions. Cattle contribute very little to overall methane emissions.
Most of the time when a company releases earnings earlier than the normal schedule it is because the earnings are better than analysts expectations.The company wants to make a positive statement to the shareholders and the investing public. The bad news is already in the public domain, so any positive earnings will be a plus.
I surmise that the main reason most investors have bailed on CPST is that the company has a huge backlog that it can not deliver because of buyers delaying purchases because of the initial cost outlay. Too much myopic thinking on the part of buyers for long term benefits of turbines. The pricing of the turbines should have been priced for a profit from the beginning and not relying on future deliveries of backlog. Poor decision making by management. However, the stock price is greatly undervalued. What will happen soon is that the CEO is likely to be booted. He has taken advantage of too many investors.
I have a friend, who works for a large investment firm. He states that he and others are noticing that a lot of buying trades are coming from Japan into the uranium stocks. This is second hand information and I can not verify, but it would make sense if Japanese insiders know that Japan will be starting up more reactors and want to buy low cost uranium stocks. The problem with his analysis is that most everybody knows this information and why would uranium stocks being going down. The price decline of oil does affect the entire energy sector, because of competing reasons. I stated this to him and he said that it was true but the downturn in uranium stock was very overdone and now are screaming bargains, thus the Japanese insider interest.
If you have noticed from the rating news on CLNE, the analysts have widely different opinions. This sceanrio applies to many other stocks as well. One has to wonder if some of these rating services are serving self interests by being paid to put out their spurious information so as to influence the stock price. CLNE has a bright future, so accumulate on dips and be an investor not a trader.
Ir an sanctions are being lifted, which means that Iran will begin exporting oil and natural gas. Iran has built one of the largest natural gas refineries in the world and holds the world's largest natural gas reserves. Iran indicated prior to the sanctions that it expects to export a lot of natural gas to Europe and other countries. This scenario will add a lot he global natural gas glut.
It seems that URG's stock price is trading far below book value. One has to wonder if so many small investors have little patience with the stock. Great bargain buying. The spring is getting tightly wound.
Every news source has the right to publish their opinion on a stock. Just because Seeking Alpha published positive articles about UEC does not mean that investors who bought got screwed. The lawsuits have no basis because authors from different news sources have freedom of the press. The investors who feel mislead are grasping at straws. It is my opinion that the lawsuits will fade away, because they have no basis. Keep in mind that the UEC float is predominately small investors, who often make irrational decisions when acting on spurious news reports or misleading economic news. This is why the stock price has large gyrations. It may very well be that the shorts have influenced the lawsuits because the stock was vulnerable to small investors reacting to spurious reports. The important fact is to be a patient investor and not be a trader. If the stock has a good foundation then accumulate on downturns.
The primary complaints by the law firms is that different news sources were promoting the stock such as Seeking Alpha; There is such a thing as freedom of the press and authors can write positive or negative articles on a stock. This is no basis for screwing over investors; however, there ae those who write articles that are intended to influence the stock price, but virtually every stock has those who are trying to influence the stock price with their opinion. I found no basis in the allegations and in fact believe that the lawsuits will fade away, because their intention is downward pressure on the stock price. Of course,they are those investors that bought high, and are grasping at straws to validate their losses with poor excuses. The bottom line is UEC is highly likely to exceed its previous highs, so patient investors will hold on.
Small investors make up most of the float and have weak hands. Small investors typically react to misinformation and can not perceive the underlying economic dynamics for the stocks.
Most of the medium to small uranium mining companies have a large float of small investors. Small investors are very mercurial when reacting to economic trends and a lot of misinformation. Thus, they are usually responsible for the dramatic declines in uranium stocks despite the fact that uranium prices are higher than previous lows and the cost differential between uranium and oil derivatives vastly favors uranium. Do your homework. Uranium stocks are now greatly undervalued.
Most uranium companies, including URG are hitting all time lows, yet uranium prices are higher than previous lows. The global demand for uranium is improving as well. The positive economics for uranium speaks loudly that most uranium companies are not only undervalued but extremely undervalued. Do your homework.
I have seen these multiple lawsuits many times with other stocks and they are mostly done to damage the stock price with little validity. The float of UEC is mostly small investors, so they are mercurial when specious news is propagated. UEC is a great bargain and the allegations can not be proven because they never existed. I can not find any wrongdoing by the company. Your best proactive action is to maintain a cash account, so that your brokerage firm can not lend your shares out to short sellers. SEC laws protect cash accounts from short selling. Change from a margin account to a cash account to protect yourself. Accumulate more shares if UEC drops lower, because the company is highly leveraged for an increase in uranium prices. Their business model has been sound.
