Hoff Going To $21

  1. Small float oil services company. First cold snap of the season on Monday. Oil is traded on the NYMEX in NYC by humans. These same humans are going to be stepping out to FREEZING weather on Monday and they will trade oil even higher then it is now. Snowstorms in Chicago as I type this.


    1 million shares short and only 2-3 million in shares available on the open market. Some probably has been covered, however, oil price shooting up will make investors flock to the stock. Even a small token interest in the stock will shoot it north. I figure $21 is the next price point.

    I with you on oil, and I also own some HOFF. Also long USO, PCZ, CNQ, and bought some SU today on the dip.

    we'll see how it plays out. :)
  3. I was watching this stock HOFF last year when it was trading around 50 cents. What happened?
  4. When it went from the OTC to the Nasdaq, they did a 1 for 25 reverse split.

  5. You have to have patience my friend. The public float on that stock is 500,000 shares.

    Does a company suddenly have one quarter of good profits and then thats it? You know if they report one surprising quarter, then the next quarter has about an 80% chance of being strong as well. When that next quarter conference call does come, then its going to have a strong pop.

    My HOFF call is working very well and if you had gotten in when I said, then you would be enjoying the profit along with me. Is $20,000 in a few days enough profit for you or do you need more?

  6. eagle, I have patience. You are a pumper. You posted that PNTR was going to $100 in the next two days in November.

    Don't re-write history. You are someone who should be posting on the Yahoo! boards.
  7. Sir,

    You either have not been in the business very long or your a big fool.

    You cant expect someone to be right 100% of the time, its just not going happen. There is no industry where everyone is 100% right. Im not afraid to give my opinion on an issue and if you believe that my opinion is going to be right 100% of the time, I have some condos in DC that I would like to unload on you now.

    Dont be so naive. When you read a person's opinion, its not the word of god.

    Lets take for example these analysts opinion on Mastercard back in July:

    12-Jul-06 Deutsche Securities Initiated Hold
    11-Jul-06 Goldman Sachs Initiated Neutral
    6-Jul-06 Stifel Nicolaus Initiated Sell

    Are you going to walk into Goldman Sachs and call them fools? They looked at the data available to them and issued an opinion on the issue. You cant put an analyst or any person down for issuing an opinion. Its up to you buy or sell.

    Where are your opinions on the issue or are you too much of a coward to post them because your afraid that you will be wrong? Im a man and can take it when Im wrong. Its a little boy that sits there and is silent all the time afraid to give an opinion.

  8. It is not a surprise that it gets cold in December.

    Oil and nat gas tanked yesterday. Supplies are high and the weather is supposed to be warmer next week (e.g. it'll be 5 degrees above normal in NYC).
