At the moment I feel gold
stocks are riskier than the
broads and especially the
oil servicing sector (OSX).

I'm positioning myself in
the oil servicing sector.
Those plays will rebuild
the oilfields in Iraq after
they've been burnt out.

I've put money into these:

HYDRIL COMPANY (HYDL)
BAKER HUGHES INC (BHI)
COOPER CAMERON CORP (CAM)
PRECISION DRILLING CORP (PDS)
NABORS INDUSTRIES LTD-USD (NBR)
CORE LABORATORIES N V-USD (CLB)
HALLIBURTON CO HOLDINGS CO (HAL)

Dan Denning For the Daily Reckoning Friday, 31 January 2003

"The only companies who will profit after the war - no matter
who owns the fields - are the companies who will help make
the fields productive. I'm talking about oil service companies.
It doesn't matter if France, Russia, the U.S. Army or a new
Iraqi government owns the fields. Whoever owns them
will need the services and the equipment to make the
profitable. Enter oil service stocks.

Oil service stocks - the companies who sell the equipment and
services to make oil fields productive - were the biggest winners
in the days between the beginning of the air war in Gulf War
One and the end of the ground war. I'm forecasting a quick
gain in this sector immediately after the bullets start to fly."

wndysrf,

I don't see how the U.S. markets
will be closed on Feb 17th unless
the U.S. is hit like it was on 9.11.

3 Martoonies-good info about the two bank failures-ties in with a rumour I heard today about a dzen wonky banks! Phat-you are right about the look of Shrubarino-he reminds me about the guy who went to the shrink-the shrink said what's your problem-the guy said-no one listens to me anymore-no one cares-no one acknowleges me-the shrink pushed the button on his intercom and said "NEXT!" We are at an inflection point in the markets right freekin here if we open straight up tomorrow-RUN LIKE HELL-we are headed to 860-880 SPX-8150-8210 DOW and very QUICK-so get up early and if we open hard up don't flinch-843 is my stop. To anyone who wants to ride it out-if you have March contracts roll to April and be VERY deep in the money. So in summing up at the open tomorrow she croaks or rockets up. Purdy being wrong hurts like hell-don't let it happen again-listen to Doc and the Board-there is a lot of experience here. I said a few days back Gold was due for a reaming and I thought 68-70 on the Xau should do it-I still do and will be adding there. trade Safe!

3Martinis, I'll miss the John Loeffler quote from your sig. Digging on the Sam Addams, though.

...A declining spenglerian carnival of Colossaalism united with Inflation where the numbers one through 10 are forever banished as worthless arithmetical detritus from a bygone age... - Beardrech

Naturally we believe the govt numbers... and Boobus Americanus sleepwalks off the edge of the energy-crisis cliff clutching his shares of "Crisco", Yoohoo and GooGah munching on his Yum Yums and Ho Hos. Future historians will have a hell of a time figuring out what the hell Americanus neanderthalus was thinking and exactly what brought on his sudden demise... - Henny Penny

Well, good night everyone. I gotta go lube up for tomorrow's regular end-of-week Gold Slapdown and Stock Index Bear Punishment Rally Weekend Greenprint. ...Probably another Shock-and-Awe Gap-Up-Open and Wire-to-Wire Meltup Runaway Bull Charge Mo-Mo Spike to Fresh New All-Time Lifetime Highs, culminating in a 4:15 yelping scalded dog runoff with panic short-covering and legal not-held bad double fills due to fast market conditions, plus quote system freeze-ups and trading platform lock-outs along the way. *yawn* typical gov't Friday. - Shorty

wndysrf,

Pardon my ignorance! I'm Swedish but living in London, UK.
Whatever happens, I hope and pray that nothing like 9.11
happens again because my brother was killed that day. His
name is David Tengelin and he worked in WTC1, floor 100.

HRFF is profoundly CYNICAL re Wall St and Washington. They've been sleeping with each UDDER FUR years, now. They'll do ANYTHING to make things look good w the economy, on Wall St that they can pull off beFUR the Administration unleashes a potential (LMAZZOFF) catASStrophe, so a huge rally would not surprise The BARE at all given their avaricious natures, so wantonly and repeatedly displayed throughout the Bubble and the myriad "rescue" attempts since. (If the govt/Fed were really serious about imposing discipline it would have done so at DJIA 6000 irrational exuberance levels or SOONER) All to no avail, of course, in some ironic kind of poetic? justice, and on the cosmic scale, too - if it weren't ultimately, so damned TRAGIC FUR this nation in particular, given it's once resilient and FINANCIALLY SOUND economy, and humanity, in general, which will suffer even more than we will, butt you won't think so due to all the HOWLING of newly disenfranchised YUPPIES and spoiled Middle Americans.

Butt he's just GUESSIN' and crossin' his CLAWS and HOPIN' his bailing out of his shorts (he's now, truly BARE) wasn't THE ULTIMATE crASSh SIGNAL!!! LOLOL

Of course it would serve HRFF RIGHT FUR being cynical if the market crASShed FURom here.

He'll gamble on Mr ASStro's DIRE predix and re-enter short FUR the 16th, however.

Long time twixt now and then, tho.

We're in what HRFF 'long' ago predicted, namely, the NATALIE MERCHANT "and now, FUR the TRICKY part", phase of the market where it's maddening to be both long and short.


And that's the long and short of it! LOL

What would be the point of a market maker or specialist when setting the after hour bid at a penny or zero- as is now the case with HMY and RGLD? This causes the portfolio value of the stock to temporarily disappear? :unsure:
