RE: Black Elk Energy Offshore

altstrat91,

I'm done for today, as in, no more research, no more buying. The sun is shinning, and I want to roll my daily miles. But tomorrow, (err, make that 'Monday') I'll take a look.

But I will say this about risk-management. "Better a missed opportunity than a realized loss." and a lot of what cannot be forcasted from proper due-diligence can be made up for by judicious position-sizing, as in, betting small and betting widely, so that one's inevitable mistakes and misjudgments --or sheer stupidity and greed-- cause only tolerable damage.

I don't own any of Black Elk. But I'm making other bets in the energy sector, and I'll have to see if/how Black Elk would fit in.

Have a good weekend, Charlie
