Stock Trade Commentary

I sold my last shares in Pinecrest Energy today in another bid at market timing. To begin with, my average price has been high in PRY and I would expect the Italians to present a buying opportunity at lower prices as it looks like panic driven selling is coming back. Again, this is NOT profit taking; this is pure market timing. Too bad I missed the top in selling my PRY shares but this is the nature of market timing. The company remains a favorite of mine and now that Q3 is out of the way, there’s a chance its price might settle lower in the coming days.

Pinecrest has done a great job building its land position up to 100,000 net acres which provides the company with 6-10 years of drilling inventory. Until a sexier slave point junior comes along, this one remains the best junior with Slave Point oil exposure and I’ll be keeping an eye on it.
