Re: Trans-Pacific Partnership: nothing to see here .

This lack of transparency is most disappointing.

Re: CREE-$25 target price

Summit Research's take on CREE ($25 price target) seems a bit dour to me. A bit of an outlier, too.

Since my last post (#41476) wherein I stated my hopeful outlook on CREE, the share price has climbed >10%. Works for me.

Thanks, worknomore! I found the link fascinating and I kinda agree (although I don't interact with Millennials all that much).

Re: Cheap oil is killing my job

Sorry, warrl, but your sophistry just don't cut it.

We've pampered, coddled and cradled the oil industry for decades. I can't help you if you're blind to that.

Re: Cheap oil is killing my job

You must not get out much. Subsidies to the oil industry have a long history and continue to this day.

Re: Oil Prices Are Going To Party Like It's 1986

There is nothing to stop oil's decline to $30 a barrel WTI. Short of some black swan event like open war in the Middle East that restricts traffic in the Persian Gulf, a full on Russian oil embargo (ha!) or a major escalation of war in the Ukraine [more]

Re: Oil Price History

Could we really expect oil to trade at $30 again for a prolonged period of time as it did in the 1990's? Or do we adjust for the easier and cheaper oil being gone? If we took the data SDRL provided in a recent post of what certain types of oil are [more]

Re: SDRL - Sea Drill

As one who bought into SDRL (and a small fleet of other drillship companies), I, too, would love to see a base form. I've written about my investments (misadventures) in the energy sector over at the Hounds. Long-term, I believe I will prosper. [more]

Re: No Stiglitz on SEC panel

That truly saddens me. I consider Joseph Stiglitz a thinker of considerable acumen. Unfortunately, his pondercations often run counter to the desires/goals of powerful wealth interests. By denying him greater voice, we are all impoverished.
