LNG plays

February 27, 2012 – Comments (7) | RELATED TICKERS: CQP , LNG , GMLP

Liquid Natural Gas has a promising future for the US.  With the Country becoming flush with NG we actually are in a position to export it.  Unfortunately the infrastructure isn't in place, but projects are in the works.  A few companies of interest is CQP, LNG, GLNG, GMLP, TGP.  I am trying to find lesser known plays that haven't caught up with the momentum.  I did find one but it is a pk play, namely HOLHF.PK.  It is a Norwegian company that has a small fleet of LNG carriers.  [more]

Whitney Houston Ye Shall Be Missed

February 13, 2012 – Comments (3) | RELATED TICKERS: WSHLY , H

Yes this is a website about investing, but the effects of success are germane.  People hit the lotto.  People pick the right stocks.  People sing great songs.  But in the end what really matters is the quality of one's soul.  Too many tragedies occur through success.  Certainly we mourn Heath Ledger, and now Whitney Houston, a woman who could belt out a song with the best of them.  The point is no matter how "rich" one becomes, how one lives out their life is more important.  Whitney thank you for your music.  [more]

Seriously. Enough is enough.  Boot em. They don't pay taxes (43% delinquency).  They want to retire at 50.  They want to riot because they will have to work and pay taxes.  Boot em.  Let the lazy, corrupt country fend for itself.  End this saga.  End it now.



Uh-OH Giants win the Super Bowl

February 05, 2012 – Comments (7) | RELATED TICKERS: H , MMM

There is an old adage regarding the super bowl winner and the stock market year end finish.  Generally when a team from the old National Football Conference wins, the stock market finishes higher, and when a team from the old American Football Conference wins the stock market finishes lower.  [more]



GMXR preferred

February 02, 2012 – Comments (5) | RELATED TICKERS: GMXRQ.DL

I was doing some yahoo message board surfing last night and for some reason I wound up on the GMXR board.  I noticed a news article by the company issuing 2012 guidance.  Basically the company has Nat Gas wells, but in light of the low price of the same they decided to shut them down and concentrate on their Bakken oil leases.  Personally I thought that was actually a good strategic move.  I then noticed someone talking about the preferred shares.  Sure enough they have 9.25% preferred shares off of a $25 face value and they were selling around $6.  $2.31 divy on a $6 preferred stock  is worth consideration.  [more]
