(B)(N) NKO Niko Resources Limited

November 15, 2013

Drama. Niko Resources Limited was a $6 billion company with a stock price of $100 three years ago. Now it’s a $90 million company with a stock price of $1.35 on Friday attributable to “working interests” in far-flung projects in Trinidad and Tobago, India, Indonesia, Bangladesh, and so forth almost none of which produce any oil or gas or of which it is the “operator” and what production there is is not sufficient to pay the bills (Reuters, November 15, 2013, Canada’s Niko raises “going concern” doubt, shares plunge).

That’s an old story but what took investors so long to pull the trigger? Somebody bought it at $100, $80, $60, $40, $20, $10 and $2 yesterday when 8 million shares or 10% of the common stock “changed hands” and now has new owners.

The “price of risk” is a real number. It’s the least stock price at which a company is “likeable” and if it can’t get that price, it isn’t “likeable”.

That is the law and we fully support and respect that law and regulation in every jurisdiction without exception and without qualification to the best of our knowledge and ability. We can only tell you what we do and why we do it or have done it and we know nothing at all about the future or the future of stock prices of any company nor why they are what they are, now.
