    I like the new CEO. I think he has a shot to keep the above water. Like I said last week, it is a gamble, but I do think there is upside here.

    new CEO seems sharp and also is taking necessary steps to try to keep the company afloat even though it's tanking the stock.

    filing chapter 11 and trying to start over might be the long term answer.

    i dont have any money invested or short this one. just interesting.

    They pushed out another 8-k on the 5th with an extensive slide deck (50+pages). I'm reading thru it now. They expect (net of insurance) to spend $2.6B on the Butte and Northern CA wildfires which includes legal fees.

    If youre interested, slide 6 has their plan of action. By 2023, 50% of opex will be capex relating to their Community Wildlife Safety Program.


    I'm gonna shoot CNN an email at lunch and see if I can't get some air time.

    but they sold at a discount and it’s covering hardly any of their assload of debt right? i don’t see any reason for the stock price to jump up like it did

    It’s back down now

    Sold at a discount relative to the stock price today and baker Hughes was trading 10 points higher 3 months ago.

    The new CEO seems sharp but he has a lot of work to do

    They offered zero guidance on the last earnings call so I think they even don’t know what will happen going forward

    Someone teach me to short a stock. I think the California energy company will have a stock price that moves from $19 current price to under $10 by Jan 1......and under $5 by the summer.






    Citi has an estimate of a $15B liability. That'll bankrupt the company. Half of that would bankrupt the company. And there speculation that they're responsible for the campfire wildfire as well. Which has $15B coast as well.

    on etrade go to the same screen you would to buy an equity and instead of buy select sell short from the drop down menu.

    You may not be able to see it because you are not approved for options trading. You should contact your broker / download the form to fill out to be authroized to trade options.

    There should be somewhere in your brokerage that you can find for "options trading"
