I respectfully disagree with your comments concerning AXAS.

Your comments seem to be based on articles published by an individual who uses a "tool", which appears to be based on a "momentum system", which looks only at numbers, and their movements.

You are entitled to your opinion, just as I am to mine, but just for the record, I arrived at my opinion on my own, and did not simply put a link to someone elses website.

Make sure you keep this article and look back at it about this time next year.

Have a great weekend.

I believe you posted this next to your "green thumb" pick about a week ago.

"The stock looks cheap and likely to continue rebounding. Analysts expect earnings to grow nearly six-fold between 2012 and 2013, and that growth could continue as new wells come on line in the near future. Some analysts have price targets for Abraxas shares at about $5, which could provide investors with a double, based on current prices."

So which one is it, your thoughts as expressed in your own post, or the ones you linked to on your website?

Not trying to be combative, but why not just pick an opinion and stick with it, or explain what happened in the last week, other than reading someones article.

Have a great weekend.
