SGU is fighting a losing battle against EPA edicts and existing players that are more established in the market.
We won't see increased gas capacity for at least 5 years if then. One line leak and "Green Freaks" will camp out on a line somewhere and threaten to blow it up.

Love this company & stock. SGU has been steadily rebounding since early 2009 with great dividends! Expecting momentum to catch on in fall of '11, could push close to $11/share.

Margins improving (+4%) and falling to stable oil will help them greatly profit. Their recent acquisitions leave them in a prime spot to benefit from higher heating oil prices. Should be a $5-6 stock, GREAT PLAY FOR THE WINTER-SPRING!

turn around well underway, driven by experienced managment team (done this before) and equity partner (Yorktown Parters (one of the best energy PE investors out there). consolidation oppty exists once business is on sold footing.
