Esb/eirgrid did a report on this a year or so back. Crazy power involved.
If athenry data centre went ahead, Apple would have been consuming 8% of Ireland's power supply across all their operations here.
Apple said they would be powered from renewables, which is horse **** when they didn't build any of their own power generation systems. All they do is buy from existing providers, who are selling the same green premise to every other Joe soap in the country. Frauds.
Streaming video currently accounts for 1% of global co2 emissions. A relatively new phenomenon. Netflix approx one third of one per cent. YouTube and others, one third, porn the other third. How long before they tax that lol
GGP is a gold exploration company. Not a mining company.
Ergo, they are not doing "heavy mining" on 7-10 different projects.
They haven't even applied for any mining licence on any of their tenements.
****, do they even have a JORC resource measured up yet?
Anyways, careful taking advice about a company from someone who doesn't appear to know what the company even does.
"Just prefer quotes from known/ reported info, not just speculation......"
Ahhhhhh, come on now.
The bb was full of quotes from previous operators mcoal via market releases, independent consultant reports, snippets from government databases and local press. Heck, you even got an intervention from the big man in the sky at one stage!!
Fair play to you for having a go at a turnaround here, but you can't change history, and definitely shouldn't forget it.
You tell me how much, instead of making leading statements as fact"
What bothers you should be the fact that people HAVE to ask these questions, not that they did ask. We'll have to wait for audited accounts to see. But, you know, form.
Wonder what funds they lent to white car?
That seems to be his latest craze. "Lending" money to insolvent companies on the brink. Because "investing" in them just doesn't quite pizz enough of it away.
For the pig iron of it in4, will you ask him a question for me.
What does he consider a good return on ones money over 2 years!?
He filters/ignores me. All I've done recently was ask him that question and set him straight on some basic points on waterflood (no water injection, no production...those such trivialities!)
Alas, no response. He tried to blame my potty mouth as reason to filter me when I shot him down previously.
I'm not into all the hype here, people buying at inflated sp will have to learn from their errors. But I'll give lk credit where it's due, he has held the sp up well.
I watched an interview with the CEO of Hannan metals last week. They have a zinc project in Clare. They are diversifying with an asset in Peru. He pretty much said the pb/zn sector is dead for the foreseeable. I guess the Canadians aren't willing to throw money into Irish zinc.
"One of his big mistakes was not that different from his predecessor’s - wasting time and money at Goudron in the face of all the evidence"
Goudron was always about EOR. NR had no hard data on it. LK has only just started playing around with it.
Waterflood needs water. Oil wells produce water. Oil production drops, water injection drops. It's a vicious circle. Cash buffer required.
Podcasts and tweets PMSL.
Bless your little cotton socks if you think that's how to research stocks.
I've previously stated before why I never invested. If I wanted to I would have made enquiries when this was being formed.
5p, 10p, 1p, I really wouldn't care.
So, why did you want me on twitter?
Podcasts and tweets haha.
Daz. Your last post me was incomprehensible.
What you're advocating is that it is grossly unfair, that professional traders get an advantage over retail investors who are in employment during market hours. You want to ban shorting because these retail investors cannot exit their positions because they are away from a computer.
Daz, just to point out your folly. Flip that statement on its head. By the same logic, nobody should be allowed go long on any stock, if good news is released between the hours of 9-5.
Come out of the fog my man.
Quite simply daz, your point is the height of ******edness.
Stock trading is a professional game. The fact that you are talking about this legislation is due to the fact that you were all probably butt fucked on some stock because you didn't know the risks or what you were doing or how a market works.
Amateurs v professionals. Only one winner.
Choosing a bad stock also covers choosing a good company, but which is over valued at the time you bought in. If that is shorted down to a reasonable level...that is your fault for not setting your evaluation right.
If you don't have time to play the game. D'ONT PLAY THE GAME!!
Property, antiques, classic cars, stamps. Plenty other ways to invest your money. And you don't need a PhD to understand those marketplaces.
The warnings are everywhere. I clicked on an ad here, first thing to pop up. "Risk warning - Investment involves risk. The value of investments, and the income from them, can go down as well as up and an investor may get back less than the amount invested. Past performance is not a guide to future results."
It's all down to personal responsibility. Most retail don't have the required knowledge to invest wisely. Only you can press the buy button.
Ffs, if you "invest" in a stock that then comes under a shorting attack....you picked a bad stock from day 1. Bad researching. Your mistake.
If you can't watch your stocks all day, you research the crap out of them and all the associated risks, and pick safe ones. Less risk, less reward. You're buying a comfort margin.
If a share price goes down, you then average down (unless a fundamental part of the business has changed)
High risk stocks, with a high reward possibility, need more constant monitoring. Your research should have made you aware of that fact.
A basic rule if you don't have time to watch 24/7 is to pick stocks that are throwing off free cash and don't have to tap the markets.
If you splash all your hard earned on a nice car, you don't leave it in a bad part of town, doors wide open, keys in the ignition while you go off on the piss for the night, every night.
That's asking for trouble. It will be taken one of those nights. Same with your stock picks.
Personal responsibility plays a major part. Education. Research. Knowing when not to invest.
Daz. You just gave the perfect reasoning as to why people should not be investing in risky aim stocks, not a reason to ban shorting.
When will people man the f up and admit to themselves that they shouldn't be taking risky punts on shit companies they heard about from a cabbies twitter feed!?
Your inequality bit is horse manure.
Buy bonds. Buy blue chips and wait 20 years. Buy rental properties. Get investment advice. Don't fuck away your pension on aim.
Own your mistakes. Learn from them.
F off with idiotic cry baby petitions.
Ps. I've never shorted any company. I see the benefits of why the facility is there. Dodgy companies will suffer, for good reasons. Good well funded companies will survive a shorting attack.
Don't play with leverage either.
