As in a car that the guys I grew up with had.. This was in the forties ...Long before any of you was even thought about.

I believe it was a Ford... The back pulled down like where is trunk is today and made a seat. Then us gals would ride in the back of the car and the guys in between while the driver played race car.

This was a precursor to the convertible... WHAT FUN........ But then everything we did was fun on those day.
NO TV

NO cell phones

NO video games... Just a group of teen agers swinging on lamp posts and walking together the mile to school and home and back after lunch and then home again. Stopping by Hershey's for a soda...

Playing spin the bottle on week-ends.. WE made our own fun.

Was life simpler then? YES

AND people were nicer to one another. Really.

I am somewhat energy bull and somewhat peak-oiler, but I agree with your list of possible headwinds for oil.

IMHO, the oil-gas spread is just too great. Something's gotta give - either there is a move to much more natgas use and oil suffers/drops or natgas production drops pushing it up.

Yes, there is no easy way to sub natgas for oil (in the USA -- other countries have larger and growing natgas transportation fleets), but with the spread persisting non-easy ways should be getting more momentum. :)

You've nailed most investors' frustration.

To add to it, the analysts are now setting price targets at where we were a few weeks ago.

Evans just needs to slow the hell down and grow by the drill bit. Investors are getting tired of hearing him say that, and then he goes off and spends another couple hundred mill on an acquisition.

Do you have a business plan or not? WTF is it, Gary?

Slow down, r u kidding me?

Have you read the 2012Q1 update? Why on earth would he want to slow down a 38% increase in production over 2011Q4? And, to top it off, that's when he had to slow down the NG production because of low gas prices.

This market doesn't seem to understand production, it's fixated on only the debt that's being incurred to fund expansion. How else does he grow the company other than organically? Issue more stock to pay for acquisitions? Sure, then we can complain about dilution, right! jmho.

>CHKR

From that article:

>>Note that unlike SDT/PER, natural gas will make up a higher percentage of production here than oil. Oil will make up 35%-40% of revenues
...
Note that natural gas production is unhedged.
...
Note that CHKR has been conservative in forecasting oil and natural gas prices through mid 2014 with natural gas topping around $5

When I heard $311 million, I expected a huge increase in current production but we get maybe a 1000 bpd? Hundreds of drilling locations added but they already had about 500 drilling locations in the Williston.

I just don't understand how this could be quickly accretive with such puny production being added.

Does this push further into the future the day when this company actually starts making money?

I am really getting tired of Gary and his empire building.

Making a profit would be the best way to fight off the shorts.

So Gary has spent roughly:

Bakken/Three Forks - $311M
TransTex Gas - $58M
Williston Basin - $47M
Utica Shale - $25M
Nuloch - $327M
NGAS - $98M

Total of $866M. I think I missed one or two smaller ($20M) purchases. As of the close today, MHR market cap is $764M.
I understand he has a longer term focus, but right now, it's Shorters 1, Gary 0! I'm curious Dale, when would you consider cashing in a few chips on MHR? I think you've regularly said when you see the company stop performing against it's stated plans, but this seems to me to be a pretty bad mis-step?

That should put year end at 18,000 boed years end over 1 billion market cap. I sold some c shares and bought more common today. MHR will be same as brigham and it sold for 36.50 share 20% above closing price. Oil got to go below 90 before Im worried. All small oil got crushed today. D shares were up to 49 today.
