    Hi Peter, Alas, I think Aggreko's future will be less impressive than its past. Nowadays a larger part of their business comes from constructing more or less permanent electricity plants and "renting" that out. One could say they have become a financing company for third-world countries who need electricity generation capacity but have no cash. I like the short-term rental business of the portable generators much much better.  That IMHO is still a fantatstic ...

    Hi Batbeer 2,

    You said one year ago:  If there are questions about Aggreko, I would be happy to share what I know about this great company.

    Bets.

    Hi Tim, I believe it is possible to generate excess returns with technical analysis. It's just that anyone claiming it is easy is either lying or doesn't understand what it is really about. A friend of mine is a good (options) trader. If I had to hazard a guess he has an IQ well in excess of 155. The guy literally solves a 7 x 7 rubics cube blindfolded. He will gaze at it for 20 seconds and them proceed to solve it without looking at it again. That scares me. He is a very nice gu ...

    Nice exchange with Dr. Price.  I fail to see how his data mining tactics can be applied with any reasonable amount of success going forward.

    • Hi Sheila,

      I don't think it is correct to say Lou Simpson (Trades, Portfolio) was CEO of GEICO. Tony Nicely has been CEO of that company for as long as anyone cares to remember.

      It is more accurate to say Simpson was Chief Investment Officer or as it has sometimes been put "CEO of capital operations".

      He is certainly an investor worth following though, thanks.

    • Thanks for an article about an interesting company.Do you have any idea why Spirit has lower costs?

      They pay the crew less?

      They have a cheaper source for fuel?

      Pay lower fees to airports?

      They have older planes? newer planes? More seats per plane? Don't pay insurance? ....

      It is good to know they have lower costs but i find it interesting to know if their lower cost base is permanent or temporary.
